They have played better without Kobe for the past several games. More of a team. When Kobe is in they defer to him. When he isn't they go to Pau/Bynum, and Bynum is playing way way better than Kobe of late.

Oh I agree with you, Majesty.

Besides, the Lakers were down 9 or 10. So, it wasn't like a small lead or something.


Just because Bynum scored a few points in a row doesn't mean that it had anything to do with Kobe sitting. Do you ever really want Bynum taking 13 foot turn around fadeaways?

For those of you who think that benching Kobe was a good move, did you not see OJ Mayo go off in the fourth? No one was guarding him, Kobe could have prevented a couple of those baskets. I don't like that move from Brown. He [expletive]ed up by starting the 4th with Kobe and Bynum and tiring them both out. I called game over when I saw that happen.

And whoever compared him to Pop, PLEASE do yourself a favor and stop that. It's embarrassing.

I'm not afraid of them in a series.


you should be

with pau turning soft a lot of times, kobe slacking at times, no bench to speak of, no backup PG, and Z-bo will be fully healthy.

Pau Gasol is GONE

As Bad as Bagel was defensively and he was bad. Kobe was terrible on that end of the floor as well. He roams on defense all the time, doesn't close out on jumpers and it's annoying.

he can hit them. Bynum has more range than people give him credit for.

But here is the thing, Kobe was forcing too much, he was in a Triple team and Sessions was open for three, Kobe didn't pass. Sessions cut to the basket wide open, Kobe didn't pass. And the Lakers were playing way too much through him.

Mike Brown saw that, so he sat Kobe and made them have to play through their bigs while also stopping Kobe from trying to force the game, while also getting him some rest before San Antonio.

So all and all it was a smart move by Mike Brown. If you don't see that you're hating.

2-9 for Artest. Unbelievable that he actually gets 9 shots. We are absolutely playing 4 on 5 with him on the court.
