This game showed us exactly how IMPORTANT KOBE is to this team. He is the MVP. Without him, we're a beheaded snake.

We also got to witness Bynum's fearlessness. He was the ONLY one after Kobe went out who showed any kind of urgency and made PLAYS. Everyone on the team played tentatively, afraid to attack the basket with any purpose. Bravo to Andrew tonight.

Tough loss but not surprising. Lakers play down or up to their opponent's levels. We were even lucky to get to OT with their consecutive missed FT. :unsure:

It also shows that no matter how good things look for us, we always find a way to lose to this team. But man, I think we just needed one more player to step up and we might have won.

i really think bynum should end games now. he's still young so he gets really excited, and when he gets excited, dam hes a beast at blocking lol. blocking shots left and right i thought he had like 10 blocks tonight.

When he's asked why Kobe doesn't tweet, @thugraider37 said he offers this reply: "Does God tweet?"

Yea for sure, it could have gone our way easily... but it didn't...

I'm NOT concerned about the Lakers.

If that was the Hornets or Rockets we were facing tonight, we probably would have won by 20.

It was just a bad game for us... I do not believe this will effect us in the long run. However it does suck to go off on the road with a loss.

p.s. maybe we would have won if Trevor was in there?

also proves sasha is worthless when it counts and lamar cant make a dunk. lamar cant stick to his man to save his life.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

Pau Gasoft wasn't there an article of him going to the gym?

What the F**k happened to that.
He looked like a walking kleenex tissue out there.

This game also showed the low B-ball IQ on this team,
Honestly how many times does letting the three point shot go spurn us?

God, I understand it's January basketball but these are the teams we should destroy once that ball goes up.

We needed Pau to contribute, and plus Sasha and Farmar was off tonight, Fish saved us in 4th, Kobe saved us in 1st OT. we didnt take 2nd OT. and thats it.

Kobe hitting shots. Somehow he doesn't get any touch and it went 7-0 or 9-0. Then he gets the ball back, hits two shots and pass to Fisher for tie.

OT, Bynum gets 2 or 3 consecutive shots. Then 2 quick 3 pointers before going back to Bynum.

kobe is becoming our central everything again which is bad because last season boston boxed kobe and forced the others to make plays and they failed.

Gasol is a crafty rebounder in the offensive end so im puzzled as to why he doesn't use that same effort on the defensive boards. its strange

I heard Clark Kellog talking about offensive rebounding the other day, saying that he always found it easier, as it is easier to anticipate when shots are going up, where the ball is going to bounce, etc.

He actually said that while defenders get hung up trying to box people out, the offensive player is free to roam and anticipate the rebound better.

A few numbers:

54
Points in the paint for the Bobcats, compared with juts 38 for the Lakers.

38
Points for Kobe Bryant on 15-of-28 shooting, including 26 points in the second half and first overtime.

31.8
Three-point percentage for L.A., who couldn’t find the range in double overtime (0-for-4) after seeing Derek Fisher and Kobe Bryant hit two big ones down the stretch in regulation.

11
Charlotte’s edge on the glass, 53-42.

9
Blocks for the Lakers, led by seven from Andrew Bynum.

Bynum also sent Gerald Wallace to the hospital.

They think he has broken ribs and maybe even a collapsed lung.

It was a weird play but he definitely didn't MEAN to do it. He got late but I have NO IDEA why he put up his elbow like that. Wallace was flying down the lane like the flash... so who knows. I hear Wallace should be fine though which is good news.

If Odom wasn't so unintelligent, if Gasol wasn't so soft, and if Fisher wasn't so slow, we'd be playing very good defense and would have a chance down the stretch.

Oh it also revealed a third thing...

The Lakers franchise has a losing record against two teams


:blink:

The Lakers are 4-5 overall against the Bobcats, who joined the NBA as an expansion team in 2004
