The Blazers, even though they only had eight players, got in the Lakers' ass tonight. The Lakers never led. The Martell Webster is a bust talk needs to stop... NOW lol. The kid can play. Llperez22 and Len Bias get mad whenever someone says Kobe got D'd up, but tonight... Webster was in his ass. For the 2nd straight game Kobe struggled. B. Roy had 32 on only 11 shots. Kobe attempted 37... THIRTY-SEVEN shots and ended with 32 points. Kobe tried to check B. Roy in the 3rd-4th quarter and was unsuccessful.
Lamar Odom has gotten his ass busted two games straight. Craig Smith gave him the business vs the Clippers and Dante Cunningham outhustled him today. Lamar spent the whole entire game crying and so did Kobe for the most part. Bynum played okay, but couldn't dominate Juwan Howard and two rookies. He spent the entire night crying also.
The Blazers deserve a lot of credit. Bayless played big tonight. They outplayed the Lakers from the opening tip.
You can tell when Kobe gets rattled. He starts turning into his old self and shooting every time like tonight and when they played the cavs i think he toke like 32 shots. If Lamar wouldn't go up so weak he would have nothing to complain about.
BAYLESS IS A BEAST. WHY DOESNT HE GET MORE TIME. HALF TIME OF THE DENVER GAME IT SHOWED THAT THIS WAS THE 10STRAIGHT LOST AT PORTLAND. THEY SEEM TO HAVE THE FAKERS NUMBER
SORRY CAP BUTTON IS BROKE
Seems like whenever Kobe is having a bad night, he keeps shooting, and his team ends up losing because of it...I don't know how he can justify taking 30+, or even 25 with Pau, Bynum, Odom, and Artest on the floor with him...If he ever figures that out I can't see the Lakers losing a playoffs series for as long as those guys are still there.
lakers also took 95 shots compare to the blazers 69 shots. blazers also outrebound the lakers too. blazers just straight out hustle them tonight. 9 in a row!
Kobe was frustrated tonight. Webster played him really physical and the refs didn't give Kobe any "superstar" calls. Kobe spent the entire night complaining to the refs. Kobe seriously looked rattled tonight. The whole Laker team did. At one point, they looked like they didn't have an answer for the Blazers.
I was extremely impressed with Webster, Cunningham and Bayless tonight. Even old man Juwan Howard stepped up. B. Roy looked like a franchise player tonight.
I did not watch much of the game, but I must say that the Lakers w/o Gasol are the Lakers between 2004-2007 after shaq b4 Gasol. Andrew Bynum needs to step it up on the boards, unacceptable for Juwan Howard to play like that.
Bynum is talented, but he doesn't hustle or always play aggressive. He had some good tip ins and strong moves around the basket, but this is a game he should've dominated. He disappeared for stretches during the game. Bynum should be more of a presence on the boards and defensive end. Bynum and Odom got outhustled by Howard and Cunningham tonight. Odom has played terrible the last two games.
Bynum should have a picture of Shaq during his prime years as a Lakers and aspire to me that every day. If he does than the Lakers would win the championship every year. Bynum is listed by espn.com at 7-0 285, he can gain at least 15 pounds in muscle and also he would have to start playing with more fire in him. If he does he will be scary, it is scary that he is only 22.
Kobe the best on the ball defender ever couldn't check Roy wow.
Bynum won't ever be close to Shaq especially during his prime but somehow he's the best young Center in the league give me a break.
Lakers would be a 2nd round team at best without Gasol.
Wsup with Artest 42% from the field and 61% from the ft line not that Ariza is doing much better in Houston but as a 4th option I'd take Ariza.
The bench looks bad without Odom and Walton.
Yeah, but say Bynum gets 65-70 cents on the dollar to Shaq. You would take that, right?
Yeah of course, imagine they traded him to the Nets for Kidd.
blazers got in that ass huh? i can tell you calling me out over this means quincey really got under your skin today witht he way he called you out. I see tonight you are a blazers fan, just like yesterday you were a clippers fan and next time the pacers win you will be on their jock.
I keep things real, if you think kobe got de'd up, then you smokin crack. He is straight missing open jumpers all night. You honestly gonna say he wasn't missin? Anyways, it's a good thing you got like 8 jerseys in your closet tezo so you can pick one very night and still have one left over. Is that alabama hat fit right?
32 points on 11 shots is VERY impressive.
wow I was thinkin my blazers where goin down 2nite with wins like this show that my blazer r the best young team out there and im happy martell showed up when we needed him cuz everone is out from injury im just hype
are bench is get playing time
You signed back on at 2:54 AM to make a post about this, yet I'm the one with someone under my skin? You were online when I made the thread... Yet you decided to sign back on two hours later to reply? It looks like you're the one with someone under your skin... I hurt your feelings so bad that you couldn't sleep. I hope you felt better and at ease after making your post.
The Lakers are the best team in the NBA... They have arguably the greatest player on the planet and are the favorites to win the NBA Championship, BUT... You're on at 3 AM being sensitive and complaining? Wait... Who has someone under their skin again?
I can't take you seriously... Especially after you recycled something Len Bias (out of all people) said. You know better. I've made it clear since I joined this site which teams and players I support. Indiana Pacers for life. Eric Gordon and the Clippers. Greg Oden and the Blazers. Derrick Rose. Are you a bandwagon jumper when you root for Russell Westbrook? Is Len Bias a bandwagon jumper when he roots for OJ Mayo? What about when he roots for Jennings and the Bucks? I didn't hear him talking about the Bucks before they drafted Jennings. Or what about when he came on here saying the Brook Lopez whooped Oden like Oden stole something? Was he jumping on Lopez's bandwagon?
You're the one smoking crack if you think it's always ONLY Kobe missing shots everytime he has a bad game... Get off his n*ts. Webster played great D on Kobe. He played him aggressively and denied him the ball. He fought Kobe all night and wasn't intimidated. I said the same thing when Webster did a great job defending Melo earlier this season. Of course Kobe missed some shots we all know he can make, but give Webster some credit. Someone recently said Webster was a bust, so I felt the need to show him some love.
P.S. By the way... I was rooting for Texas... Even more when they lost their star player. I was pulling hard for the upset.
okay tezo, first off i was not on here when you created this thread. I have no reason to lie about that, i was chillin with some friends. Second, I tend to stay up late, that's why i was on at 3 am, neither you nor your topic had anything to do with me not getting sleep, don't give yourself that much credit. Third, I was faded as hell and saw you create a topic to diss the lakers so i went on one for a second, it really wasn't that serious.
when did you two have beef?
i don't have beef with anyone here. tezo and i disagree about some stuff. My comments about him having 8 jerseys in his closet wasn't meant to be that serious.
"I keep things real".
Stop making excuses for Kobe....He shot 37 shots. Just stop.
