I agree Pau played a bit too long but Ron was fine sans that last shot attempt. I actually take that back, the one problem I did have with D'Antoni was putting Ebanks in the game, that was a mistake. But the main thing tonight was just cockiness and laziness


ron shoots too much

Yeah it really is. You know why? Because his man scored 30 points. How often does that happen? Sure he cheats on certain possessions every game but not like tonight

kobe is not a good defender hasn't been for the last few years. You know why? He's old. That's why. Kobe doesn't even play man defense. He roams, that isn't defense.

It's BEEN time. WAY overdue. Sit his ass out for those reasons PLUS you've got a great 'back-up' desperately waiting in the wings HUNGRY who actually CARES about his job in Jordan Hill.

i know. I just never heard one of them say that.

You know why he has to roam most of the time? Because his teammates suck at guarding people. That's why. Just because he roams doesn't mean he doesn't disrupt passing lanes, that's defense just so you know. Plus he has to save his energy for offense as well since often times no one is doing [expletive] on that end. So would you rather he not roam on defense and play man all the time and wear himself out even more? Yeah ok dude. He doesn't even play man defense? Not the whole game, sure, but he still plays man defense every game for at least some possessions. Open your eyes.

Listening to the players in their post-game interviews say that they just need to work harder, play harder, need to be more consistent, etc. etc. is just as annoying as how they lose these games, and it's getting [expletive]ing old. Keep saying the same [expletive], yet don't do [expletive] to fix their problems. I'm surprised no one said that it was "still early in the season" though haha.

And I LOL'd hard at when Howard said "We want to win a championship." ORLY? Doesn't seem like it buddy.

I hate it when they talk (especially Pau). It's like: "Stop lying to my [expletive]ing face"

I want Big Game James to just waltz in to their locker room, and just call them out for their lack of effort.

I doubt they would even listen to James Worthy. They don't even listen to their own excuses lol. They'll probably do it for one game and then [expletive] [expletive] up again the next. Lakers are like a spoiled, stubborn child that doesn't want to do anything right, and you just want to choke the [expletive] out of them.

Just got back from the game WTF happened?????

We were up 7 with 7 mins to go in the game I thought we'd just close it out. Then it was tied at 88 with 4 minutes left and they ended up with 113 points. How the eff did these guys botch this so bad? We gave up 40 points in that 4th quarter, they were making everything. At no point in time during this game until that last 4-5 minutes did me or the crowd ever feel antsy that the game was gonna be away from us. Thats an impressive shooting display that Orlando put up, we need to get better on Defense, that was just an inexcuseable performance in the last half of the 4th

^ Inexcusable performance for MOST of the game, not just the 4th. This team has so many lapses it's ridiculous.

yo.

what a cop out. playing the passing lanes/roaming is gambling. gambling is not solid defense. when kobe does this, it means one of two things. 1, he doesn't respect the game of who he's guarding. 2, he's lazy.

kobe does still play great defense when he's up to it, but tonight showed the other side of that. afflalo straight torched us, and a lot of that was cuz of lazy d on kobe's part.

Is it Fools Day? Did we really lose to the Magic at home? I can't believe it...

Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Better believe it! The Lakers are not an elite team. No killer instinct. They're just not a good team, period.
