I was at work and didn't catch the game. I don't know why this team doesn't feed the big guys as much as possible.
Mike Brown needs to get his rotations down because that can't be helping the players when their roles are constantly being changed. Between Fisher, Kapono, Goudelock, and Kobe you'd think that they would be shooting better from the outside.
And I just read that Steve Blake is a game time decision tomorrow.
its even worse this year because when kobe DOES pass, theyre terribly inaccurate (maybe due to his wrist injury?). anyone notice how terrible they are?.....it also doesnt help that his primary pass is always out of a jumpshot. its a bad habit hes never broken.
on that note, wtf happened to mcroberts? he rarely gets any time on the floor now.
Kobe has been inaccurate on his passes this season. And I hate that he passes out of a jump shot so much.
I mean, we are 25 games into the season and Mike Brown is still all over the place with his rotations. I feel like 25 games is enough of a sample size to have things tightened up. And McRoberts absence lately has been bothering me too.
And to cap things off Ramon Sessions had 24 points and 13 assists replacing Kryie Irving last night against the Clippers. Irving needs to get back in the lineup so Sessions can't play and drive up his price.
I was listening to the radio this morning and some caller brought up the point that this very well may be the last time the Lakers and Celtics play with the same core guys. I hope it's a good one.
phew! pau sure did save that game last night. first with the tip-in to send it to OT, then that block on rayray at the end.
kobe almost ruined it again with his ballhogging ways though. didnt he supposedly mature and become more of a team player over the past couple of years? wtf happened!? feed our two 7footers, you mother^@#$%^&*!!!!!!!!
Kobe hits the game winner to put the Lakers at .500 for the Grammy trip. After the way they played in the first half they should have won this game by about 30 points. But we all know that this Lakers team can't play a complete 48 minute game.
The only thing the Lakers should root for is to get a 6-8 seed and hope they play the old Spurs cause we all know what happened to the Spurs last year in the playoffs.
I think the Lakers would be better off with Blake starting at the point and bringing Fisher off the bench in limited minutes. And I really liked seeing Blake, Goudelock, and Kobe on the floor at the same time.
Once again this team can't perform on the road. It's just night and day how different they are at home. Let's hope that they can continue to play well at home.
And I know that trades are a part of the NBA but the Lakers either need to trade Pau or make some sort of statement to the media assuring him that he is isn't going anywhere so we can get the old Pau back.
EDIT: Apparently Pau was spotted looking up all the trade rumors involving him on the team plane last night.

And I loved last nights game cause kobe had the most turnovers in the NBA for a game this season. Good job team killer!
The Lakers manage to win despite all the turnovers, missed free throws, and second chance opportunities. That formula won't work on the second of a back to back on the road against a good team like the Thunder. Not to mention the fact that they are young.
