And Shaq scored 14. They were the two leading scorers. The fact Kobe played 49 minutes and Shaq played 38 minutes and Detroit and Ben Wallace were able to accomplish that shows how scary of a defensive team they are(and they won that game by 20). Two different scenarios and level of team.
your point is a fine one though if for different reasons entirely.
Also to note, Shaq was in foul trouble that game. My post wasn't directed at you, just in general about bad games.
My point again is that regardless of the reason, bad games happen. Whether it is an off night because of an opponent's defense or just being cold that night, a bad game is a bad game.
I just find it ironic from our fans who hate on LeBron's failures were most likely the same ones who hated when other fans talked about Kobe's bad games.
