I just put out some quotes of the ESPN article (down) and made up my mind why the Knicks have success and started the season with 21-10 and our Lakers, at probably, the same age, are at 15-16, with a record of 12. seed in the west and they play sluggish defense and lack of confidence at both end of the floor (like yesterday)
Wee seem to bounce back always at the end of the games but we just cant finish to really get back and turn the table..
Then why can the Knicks kick out every team in the league, without having this fear? I mean they are also a great nostalgic franchise like us...they play in a basketball Mekka like us and they have several players over 30, like us...
Damn.. I just cant figure it out...
"You just saw an old damn team," Bryant continued. "I don't know how else to put it to you. We're just slow. You saw a team over there that was just younger and just had fresher legs and just played with more energy, and we were just stuck in the mud. I think individually we all have to figure out how to get ourselves ready each and every game to have a high level of energy. That's all that is."
Metta World Peace, 33, refused to accept the age of the Lakers' roster as an excuse for their play, pointing out what the New York Knicks have accomplished so far this season.
"That's no excuse, the Knicks are playing great, so that's no excuse," World Peace said. "You can't use it as an excuse for us. Thank you. Thanks for trying."
