    Did Bynum just commit those first 2 fouls purposely? It feels like he doesn’t want to play.

    He may not be the MVP anymore (THE MAMBA), as a cheap shot, dirty player he remains unmatched!you girls should be proud!!

  • Big Phil

    WTF is derek fisher doing out there?! stupid shots, bad layups, and bad passes … he’s killin us

  • Smush Walton

    Unfortunately, we did not bring our A game tonight. No energy or enthusiasm!

    Smush of the Game is going to be a tough choice – Bynum? Fisher? Pau? The Contraption? Shannon?

    I think the Award goes to Fisher – he really SUCKED tonight! His layups have been a bad joke!

  • RN

    The Lakers need to move the ball in order to win.

  • Big Phil

    Yeah…the lakers looked lackluster until the 4th quarter…stop this “we can turn it on anytime” crap…the rockets played smarter and with more energy from the beginning of the game. Fish should not even try to make layups…he’s the worst PG I’ve ever seen in making layups. Will Pau please man up out there?! He plays like a wuss out there. Odom missing freethrows … argh?!

    I LOVE FISHER BUT HE IS OLD. SECOND WHY IS PHIL PLAYING BYNUM AND NOT ODOM. KOBE FELL INTo Artest’s trap. GASOL I IS WEAK. NO PASSION. PHIL IS ON CRACK. STOP EXPERIMENTING WITH LINE-UPS. I KNOW WE WERE GONNA LOSE TODAY. DAMN. I DONT LIKE FARMAR THAT MUCH BUT I THINK HE IS THE X FACTOR. FISHER IS A SHOOTER NOT A POINT GUARD. WE ARE FACING THE HARDEST POITN GUARDS IN THE LEAGUE. D.WILL, A.BROOKS(UNDERATED), C.BILLUPS OR J.KIDD IF WE GET THAT FAR. THIS IS A WAKE-UP CALL. KOBE’S D IS NOT THE SAME, THUS MAKING IT HARD FOR A FISHER KOBE LINE-UP. BACK IN THE DAY KOBE GUARDED THE BEST POINT GUARD. IT CANT HAPPEN ANYMORE. KOBE DOES EVERYTHING I CANT BLAME HIM. BUT HIS TEAM AND THE COACH NEED TO FIGURE IT OUT. KOBE WILL BE KOBE. WE TAKIN IT 4-2. I JUST HATE THE RESULT OF TONIGHTS GAME.

    Come on bandwagon fans….

    yes we did not play well, we did not have the energy, etc.
    This is a wake up cal for the team.
    I predict next game we will win with at least 10 points ahead. The guys will regroup analyze the video and play much better. Kobe will be feeling better too.
    I am a true believer that sometimes we need to lose a game here and there to shake things up and light the fire on a team.
    Lakers in 6 at the most.

    i knew we were gonna lose since the game started. its a one man team again. for most of the players, it was just off night but for bynum and fish, its a choke. we need odom and pau to play well and also shannon then we’ll be okay. lakers in 5. bold statement but im confident. LA all the way baby.
