Outside of Howard, everyone is okay however they all need to do some reality check.


Howard need to be patient with his form. Gosh. We suck at FT

I'm sorry, but this is just unacceptable. This is a professional league, not an elementary school pick-up game. We won't sniff a championship if we don't get this handled.

23-43 from the line. 10 turnovers for Kobe. 7-8 record. D'Antoni seemingly not having the attention of his players. This doesn't look good at all.

I'll also add that most of these players just flat out need Psychologists - They falter when the pressure is on.

Last night was just horrible.... they all were so bad. Its so ungreatful that a 34 year old guy like Kobe, who struggles with his health and flu ,fights us back with 40 Points and then we cant convert and shipp the game to our side just because some in our team, WHO GET HIGH PAID, cant execute their free throws!!!!! WTF ? I mean with all this money, with all this expierience in their careers they just cant make 2 silly throws off the line?


Just THINK about if we just would have hit them..... W not L!

I agree, it's ridiculous. Only Pau and Kobe could hit FTs in the end.

Howard AND Metta going 0-4 with only seconds left is pathetic.

Especially Dwight should man up a bit on the line..everytime he gets on the line its like watching a hollywood drama movie... I dont want that!

Remember Vujacici in the finals vs boston 2010 ...we dont have guy like that ..we only can rely on Kobe (Nash) and Pau in these moments AND I DONT WANT THAT!!

Every1 is not fine from the charity strike! In 4th qrts all of them except Kobe routinely miss the timely freebies they need to closeout gms. The all get up there & rush their shot to get away from the line as fast as possible. im sick of it = ur a pro make them

Its clear the players need some motivation into making these chip shots. They should have a contest in the next game: the person with the highest FT% gets to decide what team Pau Gasol gets traded to...

I hope this games serves as an example .. If everything else fails, at least make your freethrows .. That's probably one of the easiest things to do in basketball. How can you expect winning games, ANY game while shooting 50% from the freethrow line ? If we made 75% which is bad as well we would've probably won by 10 or so. And this is not the first game this has happened .. It's becomming contageous. It's unacceptable ..

And Dwight .. pleeeease learn how to make those freethrows. You are a freakin NBA player, how hard can it be to learn how to shoot them ? He knows he sucks, then why not work on that aspect of the game ? It's been 8 years now and instead of improving, he's getting worse at making FT's .. I'm not saying make 90% of them, but what about 65 ? 70 ? Dwight is shooting 50% .. He's worse than Shaq .. Imagine what bigger threat he'll be if he makes his FT's .. No more hack-a-Dwight. I hate seeing that and you know what ? As long as he sucks at making FTs teams are going to foul him down the stretch .. a lot of teams .. all of them .. And we'll lose a LOT more games .. I'm so mad right now ..
