Maybe next season for the Lakers.

I don't care what you guys say about Kobe, he is still my favorite player in the NBA.

No reply because your post/comments are ridiculous and not worthy of continuing the discussion.

Oh come you know it means I hit on every point and that you were not able to come up with another strong point to challenge my argument.

Let's see if the Spurs can close out tonight

I really think Pau doesn't fit into the Laker's offensive system anymore since Bynum's emergence. Bynum has clogged up the lane with his post moves, etc. Btw, if Pau didn't have a big game 7 against the Nuggets, the Lakers might have been sitting at home instead of playing OKC right now... also, how soon people forget about Pau helping the Lakers to two titles.

Heat finally had someone other than Lebron and Wade to step up...HASLEM!! I'm waiting for one of favorite players, Battier, to step up with a 20pt game in this series!

Bynum doesn't have any post moves which is why the Lakers players stopped giving in the ball in the 4th qtr. The Thunder players were fronting him since he can only play down low with his back to the basket. So since he is limited offensively they could no longer get him the ball in the low post.


And Battier doesn't need to see playing time anymore this series because he is hurting the team by missing so many wide open shots

everybody wants to down pau and ignore what a horrific series kobe is having shooting wise. barkley was on point when he said that when kobe starts to hit those crazy circus shots he forgets his teammates and thinks hes superman. he argued its a detriment to the lakers for kobe to hit those crazy shots because he starts to believe he can make them all.

everybody acts like kobe's always shooting 50% from the field and every other laker is ruining it for him. nobody remembers how pau and artest basically won game 7 of the 2010 finals against the celtics as kobe shot 6 for 24 from the field, while gasol had 19 pts and 18 rebounds in the title clinching game.

yes pau needs to shoot the freakin ball but kobe needs to check himself too his shot selection is terrible and he's turning the ball over a lot. if it weren't for alot of bail out calls he wouldn't even be scoring that much. he had 18 free throw attempts in their only win

Lakers could easily be the ones up 3-1, but unfortunately they are not. At this point I can definitely see Gasol getting trades for another starter and some bench. Too bad it hasn't worked out better with Gasol and Bynum.

That's like having an engine problem and solving it by getting a new set of tires.

James and Wade went off. I'll give credit where it is due. Win or lose, I am a Pacer fan and will stand by my team. Which is more than you can say.
