    Last night was more about Kwame than the Lakers losing. Kwame needs to listen to some Rocky classics. I know that always pumps me up.

    One thing for sure we need Chris Webber yesterday LOL.

    Yeah man the article is saying how the Suns overcame the Lakers, when the victory is just like a win against the Spurs without Parker, Ginobili or Duncan, we were handicapped.

  • DCLAKER

    It’s still early but they have to get Kwame some steroids or trade him.KB/Farma/LO(has to score more)have to take over and let DF be The Floor General.Webber will be here soon and JO is still waiting.

    No one is coming to save the Lakers! This is our mess, and we have to correct it.

    Kwame got intimidated by Stoudemire. Simple as that. Did you see Kwame’s face, it was morbid the whole night. He fumbled the ball because he didn’t want Stoudemire to block him.

    DCLAKER is right, Kwame needs to grow some balls or get some steroids. Unacceptable.

  • Odom the worst player

    The reason the Lakers lost to the suns is because, Kobe was trying too hard to get his teammates’ involved. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, but Kobe has to remember the word team, and that should also include himself. He was not looking to shoot the ball at all. He has to shoot. Now that doesn’t mean he has to take 40 shots a game, but he always have to put pressure on the defense. They shouldn’t know if he is going to shoot or pass, but Kobe sometimes tries to hard to get people involved. Look at Steve Nash if people start covering his teammates he starts shooting the ball. Kobe only started shooting in the 4th qrt. Same thing with Michael Jordan, even though he got his teammates involved he still was averaging 30 pts a game. Which mean he still took his shots though out the game. Kobe has to shoot the ball though out the game, otherwise he is playing into the hands of the defense
