I could be mad for losing but I did think it was a good learning experience. Kobe fouls out in OT. All that means it was time for other players to step up and show they can play without Kobe in crunch time. No one could step up for the Lakers. Gasol was having a off night.
So I expected Odom to take it on his shoulders to lead us to victory. I gave myself false hope. Since Odom is the anti-clutch. He was a contributor is many key plays, except it was plays for the Bobcats. Even though he is playing well, I still wouldnt mind him to be traded for a defensive minded SF. That's just me though.
One big thing I had a problem with was a key substitution in overtime. We began hot in the start of OT. When we were up by four, Phil substitutes Gasol (having a bad game) for Bynum (having another solid night). Just didn't understand that at all.
But we will move onto the next games. Hopefully the guys recover and we have a successful road trip.

Arguably the greatest franchise ever
