WE WON BOTH, AND KOBE DIDNT PLAY TO HIS NORMAL LEVEL IN EITHER GAME....This team is exceptional. and mo williams is quick as any guard his size in this league. he can drive the ball and he has registered a number od doubles-doubles despite not getting a true chance to dominate the ball, but WE WON. and some of these idiotic fools out there in the national media( and this forum) thought we would SUCK despite this being the Defending west champs, who are more experienced as an unit than last year
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers

It's an amazing feeling. Like now we get the respect we deserve. But we're still gonna hear negative stuff.

I never really followed Mo Williams but he is definitely better than Ray Allen.

Ray Allen is clearly better than Mo Williams.

i called it after the boston game in this thread -

http://lakernation.c...h...c=11472&hl=

kobe rarely has two poor shooting games in a row, and to have the sweep of this trip that NO ONE using any sort of logic would have called in the face of bynum going down being this close...i rarely predict victories, but i'm gonna say we got this one...cleveland's home streak has to end at some point...why not us? why not not?

at 17-5 we have the best road record in the league

orlando 18-6
boston 17-7
san antonio 15-8
cleveland 16-9

Concur. Ray Allen hits big shots. Mo Williams does not.

Yeah. Ray is amazing off the ball, is more clutch, far better shooter, and can even take it to the rim pretty good (people just don't know that).

I would take Ray Allen to lead a team over Mo Williams (someone who has never done it in the first place).

OK, maybe it's because I like Mo Williams whereas I don't like Ray Allen at all.

Still have to give credit to Ray for what he is best known for. Hitting the 3s. As much as I have grown to hate him too.

i will say that RAY may be better. He is getting older and Mo williams can take it to the hoop beter, set up teammates better, and he hits shots also, but he could struggle i big games. I have seen Mo hit ig shots for this team and the bucks, but I know Ray's legacy is far greater.

I do think that Mo is more important to his team than Ray is. I mean they could trade Ray for Kapono and bestill have a similar record, but i dont think you could trade MO for lets say fisher or someone like that, and expect the cavs to be the same team

I started a similar thread prior to this one, and alluded to the 2000 team going to Portland and winning on 2/29/00.

To me, that was the game that solidified us as the favorites, and showed that we really were a championship-level team.

It's one thing to be a contender, but it's a whole different animal to actually go out and win big games on the road in hostile environments, thus elevating the confidence of your players to a point where they no longer have to talk about being confident; but rather, they can go out and prove it on the court.

We just knocked off the two best teams in the East, on the road, at the end of a 6-game trip in which we lost our starting center.

There should no longer be a confidence issue with this team, from this point forward. Go out, play, and win.

There are no guarantees; however, there is also nothing really left for this group to prove other than going out and winning the title.

Yeah, but if you read these threads, there's a common theme, led by Doc and the L-fool, that the Lakers defense remains awful and incapable of winning a championship playing like this. There are others on here who are dissatisfied with the overall play despite our 41-9 NBA best record. Are you happy?
