I used to be a HUGE critic of Kobe around the years where Shaq was leaving and then after. Once he pulled his head out and started playing team ball I called him CLEARLY the best player in the league.

Ironic that all the Laker fans bragged about having these great PF and Centers and now suddenly that's their problem.

Kobe has reverted now and they have no bench. He is the team leader, the coach and everyone else knows that they cannot call him out or be traded etc.

If you want to defend a guy shooting 38% for the SERIES and taking 1/3 the Lakers shots...then go for it.

P.S. The higher FG% wins about 85%-90% of all NBA games.
Gasol's 40% must go along way, I guess there must be some reason why you are defending this guy so vehemently

Well the Heat have regained home court advantage today with Lebron scoring 38 and wade scoring 30 along with Haslem scoring 14 points. Indy tried to win the game in the 1st qtr and lost just like the Celtics, Clippers, and Lakers.

Massive props to Lebron... 40 points, 18 rebounds, 9 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks. Wade was unconscious in the third quarter, hitting like 11 in a row at one point. On the other hand, the Heat needed two Herculean performances to beat the Pacers, they're going to need more contributions from their role players. Haslem was big in the forth, hitting a few clutch baskets off the p-n-r.

Haslem turned back the clock to 2006 today because I haven't seen him shoot like that in a long time. Lebron was out of his mind today along with Wade who stepped up to the plate and now the Pacers blew the chance of winning the series. Me and you both know the Pacers are not winning two games in Miami.

With that 40% game pau is still shooting 48% for the series with Kobe shooting 38% and Bynum shooting 44%. Who should be shooting more? Oh maybe the guy shooting damn near 50% and 10% better then the guy calling him out and jacking 25 shots

He deserved to be called out not only for passing up a opportunity to score late in the game but his inability to rebound and play defense which is two things Hill was doing a lot better when he was in the game.

He didn't rebound well, but he defended. 3 blocks, Don't just happen standing there.

Pau had a bad game and he got called out by a guy having a bad series. Something ironic about all that.

Kobe is the leader of the team and has five rings which means he can call out whatever player is not performing. And as a big man you have to rebound and play defense because that helps your team get more opportunities to score. And i don't remember those 3 blocks being during the last 5 minutes of the game which is what have made them key blocks. I;m not impressed by blocks in the first qtr.

No comeback huh? That's what I expected because you know every point I made about Kobe and Gasol was 100% accurate.
