I hate this team's collective effort and defensive IQ. We have soooooo many stupid players. Nate Robinson open on multiple 3's? Ray Allen open on multiple jumpers? Luke Walton leaving Paul Pierce open in the 3rd? Shannon and Blake playing up on Rondo (Give him space....HE CAN'T SHOOT THE [expletive]ING BALL)?

Most of all, I'm angry at Pau Gasol. He's tired, been to 3 straight Finals, we wouldn't have gone back-to-back without him yeah yeah yeah. That's great. But who [expletive]ing cares about that when he CLEARLY is half-assing out there on both ends of the floor? He's not defending, not scoring, and he's not even rebounding! So [expletive]ing infuriating.

I bet Kobe's just as frustrated as the rest of us. He's working his [expletive] off for nothing. He is so incredible, drawing double teams... and the other guys just stand and watch. They should be charged for the price of a courtside seat

Yuck. The only thing these punks know how to do is play like tripe against anybody. It's gonna take an act of God for these guys to get #17 with the way they aren't bothering to show up.

Too much Kobe =loss he's playing great but we hardly win these type of games.


I completely agree. We are at our best when we share the ball and get a lot of team assists. We are horrible when Kobe takes a bunch of shots and the team just standds around. Unfortunately we are a team that get's energised on the defensive end when our offense is going good. It would be nice to switch that, but because that is our nature, we need to play more team basketball, and I think our defense will be in better sink.

I'm REALLY hoping this isn't a veiled shot at Kobe saying that he shouldn't take over games.

For real. The most annoying thing in the world is when fans say that Kobe should take less shots, and then complain when he doesn't take enough. They're never satisfied.

Kobe is the only reason this was a close game, period. He went on a tear at the end of the first half to give us a lead. He took a step back in the third because he tried to get other players involved, but did you see any other Lakers wanting anything to do with the ball? Hell no. Pau turned the ball over on practically every single possession because he was either blocked, missed the shot, or just got it poked away. Bynum had a sore knee again, blah blah blah. I thought Odom was gonna make a bigger contribution and then he committed that stupid foul on Baby Davis to give him 3 free throws. Blake played terrible D and allowed Rondo and Ray Allen to get wide open shots. etc. etc. etc.

I could go on, but I truly believe that Kobe as matured and he only "takes over" when he seriously has to. Tonight, he HAD to take all those shots because nobody else would. What would you do if you were the only one scoring for your team and you gave your teammates several chances to do so?

Kobe should get a vacation while the other dudes get a serious talking to. This is not just a game; it's their job. You can't just decide when you're gonna show up... not when you're getting paid millions.

This was not Lakers' basketball and we can only pray that things turn around in the playoffs.

Kobe = MVP

Kobe is hot in the 1st half and than he stops shooting in the 3rd until they've given the lead away, and tries way to hard in the 4th and misses basically the majority of his shots

Actually he normally goes off in the 3rd.

We really need to get the ball going on our offense. Besides the tough shots that kobe made, which we cant rely on every game, no one else was really producing so many. Our Defense was not all that great and we need to get better ball movement!!

You could tell Boston was making a point in two categories to beat us yesterday- one was outrebounding us, whih they did handily, but no doubt to Drew's and Pau's lack of aggressiveness and two, running on us, led by Rondo's 16 assists, 15 in the second half. But honestly you guys, and this is not taking credit away from the celtics, the Lakers just did not care to execute this game and Boston played better because they wanted it more. The same thing could happen in Boston, hopefully not, but honestly nothing surprised me about that game except the fact we got outrebounded by that much. A little concerning, but mostly that just tells you our bigs are not bangin with them though and nothing much else. Just be patient guys, and BELIEVE in them.

Yes 34-10 says a whole helluva lot.

we can't let this loss effect the next game we play. Need to keep our heads up and get them next time around.
