Can everyone agree Harden is better than Westbrook, or is that still a debate?

Definitely not Kobe's fault. He's played great this year. I do think he's a garbage leader but the struggles have more to do with coaching and the supporting cast. Outside of their top 5 players, they have zero players who should be in an NBA rotation.

kobe took some terrible shots, but then again no gasol or dwight.
still think nash needs to run things more instead of passing it to kobe at 23 feet half the time.
the bench needs to have more confidence, but no one is giving them any confidence. there are capable players and shooters there.

i think this all came when nash had to go stretch. when he had to go it was in the middle of a cold streak, then came the big run that ended the game. if you're kobe why pass it to clark, sacre, duhon, or meeks?

How does Sacsanity start if Kobe won't pass to him? :dontknow:

He's talking about the team now without Dwight Pau and Hill is basically Nash and Kobe plus a bunch of D-leaguers


If you add up all the injuries, it adds up to one Hall-of-Famer missing the entire season(so far), but he still got two more. He should still be able to overcome it, unless he's not really that good.


Pau has played more like a D-leaguer than a hall-of-famer. Is that Kobe's fault?

Dwight has been recovering from a back injury and thus hasn't played like a hall-of-famer. Is that Kobe's fault??

Then maybe you should have declined those guys instead of trading for them? Sorry, but no takebacks. If you're going to blame others for losing, then maybe Kobe should give back those rings when he teamed up with Shaq, or Pau, Odom and Bynum, because all he did was gang up on less talented teams.

If Kobe doesn't make the postseason, it will be the biggest choke of all time really.

Well, if the Lakers continue losing then they'll take take a pick :wink:

They'll have the Lakers', Minnesota's (IIRC) along with theirs. Potentially 3 lotto draft picks.
