I think you've officially blamed everything for the Lakers losses except Kobe, Global warming and Dubstep.

Hey look, arbitrary numbers!

I think 62% of your post is dumb and 38% is trolling. Thoughts?

That's your opinion and you are entitled to it. I still believe that the Lakers need a new coach and better role players to get beyond the second round of the NBA playoffs. No team in the NBA will go far in the playoffs without good shooters and strong defense

Blake....inconsistent shooter
Barnes....bad shooter
Artest....inconsistent shooter

Gasol....soft on defense

So I think the Kobe Favre comparison is fair in that regard...
Being a division winner does not give a team a first round bye. I would not compare losing convincingly in the second round of the NBA playoffs two straight years to losing two NFC championship games in OT.

I'm not at all going to discredit what Favre did in two of his final four years. And I don't even like Favre. Loved seeing him collapse down the stretch with the Jets. Hated every bit of his success with the Vikings.

I didnt say being the division gave you a bye in the first round as an arbritrary statement... The Divison winners that are the #1 and #2 seed do get byes though!

I meant it in reference to Favre because his team was the #2 seed in both of his fnal two conference championship years! So they only won 1 game in the playoffs as I said! They were 1-1 total.

That is equivalent to going down in the second round of the NBA since you have to win 4 and then lose 4.

So the comparison to Kobe still stands!

A highly compensated player who plays small in the playoffs. Who wants that? The Bulls already have one of those. His name is BOOZER; and he plays worse in the playoffs than Pau. Gasol would be an upgrade over him. Boozer is horrible.

Why not just release Pau? That frees up another 12 shots a night that Kobe can take from 3pt. range while fading away with a hand in his face.

The Bulls needs to release a lot of players too after that crap I saw in the 1st round and the players that need to go are below due to their basketball IQ

1. Boozer
2. Watson
3. Asik
