Well damn, I guess Jordan decided not to let anyone else shoot the ball, then...just him and Scottie. What a ballhog. Biggest loser I've ever seen in the NBA. Didn't he know that Will Perdue and Bill Wennington could've been his third or fourth scoring options if he'd just give them the confidence by passing the ball, instead of chucking 23 shots per game? Seriously though.

Dayam, no wonder he put Kwame in the doghouse ASAP (he was jealous of Kwame Brown, the future HoF/G.O.A.T/man of the year upstaging him)...

I don't know. Kendrick Perkins gets less than six shots per game when he's shooting 59% from the field, but nobody complains about the unselfish Garnett, Pierce and Allen.

Too many scoring options? Well, Varejao plays 30 minutes a game and gets what...six shots per game on 51% shooting? That's better than LeBron, Williams and Ilgauskas.

Oh, just so you know...

Dwight Howard gets 12.6 FGA per game, at 57% from the floor.

Emeka Okafor gets 10.0 FGA per game, at 56.5% from the floor.

David Lee gets 11.8 FGA per game, at 55.9% from the floor.

Andris Biedrins? 9.1 FGA per game at 57.6% from the floor.

Andrew Bogut? 8.8 FGA per game at 57.7%.

Nene? 9.3 FGA at 59.9%.

Shaq? 11.4 FGA at 61%.

Pau Gasol? 12.6 FGA per game at 56.2%...pretty similar to all of them above, huh?


Shaquille O'Neal is 37 years old, and way past his prime

And Gasol is a superior scorer to all of those names you mentioned. Why do you even bother to mention nonscorers in Biedrins and Nene? Nene just came back from a tumor, and Biedrins has never been known as a scorer. Andrew Bogut doesn't have a post game, and Okafor is still very raw.

Gasol is the best scorer out of all of those names you mentioned, aside from Shaq, who is way past his prime anyways.

then Bynum or Gasol need to do a better job of establishing good post position. We can't dump it into them 17 feet from the basket and ask them to go to work.


You're imagining things. They're not always out 17 feet.

They get great post position only to see Kobe chuck it up way too often.

Rarely are that out 17 ft. from the rim. They are almost always near or on the block 8-12 ft. out. When have you ever seen Bynum posting 17ft. out??? Gasol can be there as he has a mid range jump shot.


come on now

Last 6 games.

45-120 a dreadful 37%, When we are playing teams with weak frontcourts Pau and LO should be our main options.

Thank you. No coincidence that our team is playing better defense when they are involved in offense, instead of standing around watching one person chuck.

Farmar: 1-6 FG
Vujacic: 0-3 FG
Powell: 2-6 FG
Ariza: 1-6 FG
Odom: 4-10 FG

They played superior defense in response even though they were missing shots. It's psychological, especially for a young team.

We're a better team when Kobe isn't a ball hog.

We're a better team when Kobe isn't a ball hog.

What happened in the last Houston game?

Oh yeah, Kobe (the ballhog) put up 37 on (gasp) 23 shots...in Houston. We won.

Ballhog Bryant scored 33 in another meeting, including a clutch 13 in the fourth (and a big three with 27 seconds to go) to beat the Rockets in Houston, again (Gasol went 3-9 I believe).

Our biggest victory came against them in November, when Ballhog Bryant shot 17 times (Gasol had only 10 attempts) while he led the team in scoring again, and we won by 29 points.

Still going, I see.

Case studies again I see?

Remember, Kobe is no LeBron. He doesn't necessarily set up his teammates with the best shots.

Why do you hate all other Lakers and only like Kobe? Don't worry, when Bynum comes back, he won't be shooting as much anyways. Bynum's presence will force Kobe to play MVP ball like the way he played tonight.

I'm just going by the stats, buddy. You do it...right?

Why are you getting mad and putting irrelevant comments out there?

I like Kobe, Bynum, Ariza and Powell. Used to like Gasol until you decided to declare him the best Laker (and, by the way, Phil Jackson even disagrees with you).

I think the biggest question is, why do you hate Kobe Bryant? Why do you make multiple negative posts and topics about him? What did he do to your family?

It's been consistent with you for four years now, dude. It's about time to let it go. It's really starting to cast a shadow over you as a poster, and half of us aren't even paying attention to you anymore, which is sad, because I know how good of a poster you can be.

It's too bad, really.

Remember, Kobe is no LeBron. He doesn't necessarily set up his teammates with the best shots.

Ask Mbenga about that. Ask Powell. Did you watch the game tonight?

Do you watch any Lakers games?

Hey man, here you go: ask Shaq. You probably have his phone number.

Ask Derek Fisher about Kobe setting him up. How about Harper?

You're falling off a cliff here.

I like Kobe Bryant when he set up Shaq, and waited for his turn towards the ends of games. I like Kobe early this season when he was scoring 24 a game, but getting everybody involved. I hate Kobe when he becomes a chucker, and starts chucking up an unbelievably dumb shot selection. You have a big man, feed him, and let him do his job. Get your shots within the system.
