Even before Felton’s kick-out pass reached the open Diaw’s hands, Bryant on the bench was contorting his face in confusion and raising his palms in disbelief at what Odom had done.

When Diaw’s 3-point shot dropped to tie the game, Bryant became so enraged that he threw an imaginary fastball at Odom’s head. It was astonishing that Bryant managed to hold on to the towel in his right hand given the ferocity with which he whipped his arm in Odom’s direction, but the message of the brush-back pitch was clearly sent.

Can't blame Kobe for that, Odom was missing free throws, went 2-8 from the field and Diaw pretty much scored at ease against him.

Just chalk that up and add it to a long list of Lamar's all-time pot head moments...

We all know what numero uno is on that list...right?

ODUMB WON'T BE A LAKER NEXT YEAR.

Odom has been there with Kobe since 04-05. He has been through many battles where giving up the three has killed the Lakers.

I don't blame Kobe for being livid at Odom, hell, I was more livid at him that Kobe.

L.O can shoot the ball, attack the rim and make the ft's if he wants to. Guy is just being too laid back all the time.

Let's blame LO for losing the game.

Felton almost had a triple double and Gasoft didn't show up again. We wouldn't be in that situation if Gasoft had a decent game yesterday.

Pau's been consistent all season, he gets labled soft after 1 bad performance.

i was at the game last night and everyone in my section was going crazy as they saw diaw get free
over and over the bobcats manipulated that help defense of the lakers
as soon as they help, they kick it out or underneath
story of the game unfortunately
we sadly just got outplayed yesterday
lamar is not the only to blame though

besides kobe and bynum no one really showed up late night to play

1 bad performance? He usually doesn't show up when we need him. He didn't show up in the Finals and he didn't show up in games when we needed him.

No one was that good vs the C's in the finals, but 17ppg 9rpg plus the Xmas day game vs the C's i'll take that and go from there.

He didn't have a good game until the 4th quarter because of Kobe. Kobe was the playmaker and gave him easy shots.

I know you guys like to blame Lamar for everything, but I think Sasha's bricks costed us the game... Sasha's playing more than bad recenty. He doesn't bring the same energy off the bench. I'm not saying LO played good I just think it's unfair to blame the guy for everything...

P.S. And calling Pau - Gasoft is so classless... The guys had a bad shooting night, that's all...

Unfortunately, I missed the game live, but I did record it so I watched it when I got home at about midnight. The Bobcats played well. We played decent. The played us tough like they have since coming into the league.

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.

So are you guys getting annoyed by Phil's substitution yet?
Or maybe because he has 9 rings, it's fine.

Stop trying to bait people into getting into a heated arguement with you. Many are still angry with the loss so don't start with that crap.

The substitution was a key factor but it wasn't why we lost.
