@  slick shoes : (21 June 2017 - 04:28 PM) Morey is locked in for four more years. Glad to have some stability at the helm after everything we've seen the last couple of weeks.
@  slick shoes : (16 June 2017 - 04:31 PM) It's a shame we don't have a first rounder this year. I did notice that the W's and the Cavs have 0 picks this year (not that they need them).
@  thejohnnygold : (16 June 2017 - 03:57 PM) Whoever picks him is going to be a happy camper

@  slick shoes : (22 May 2017 - 05:25 PM) I can't decide if I want them to draft Ball or not.
@  thejohnnygold : (21 May 2017 - 02:50 PM) Don't worry...they'll find a way to screw it up.
@  slick shoes : (17 May 2017 - 03:52 PM) Is anyone else annoyed that the league reached out and helped the Lakers secure a top 3 pick to keep them from long term ruin?
@  Mario Peña : (13 May 2017 - 11:56 AM) It would appear James will take games off next year which is probably a good thing. Perhaps we will see some evolution from emphasis on regular season to being playoff ready both from a physical as well as a strategy standpoint.
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2017 - 05:26 AM) I personally will be rooting for the Spurs in their next matchup with Golden State in the Western Conference Finals
@  rocketrick : (12 May 2017 - 05:26 AM) Congratulations to the Spurs and Coach Pop. They completely destroyed the Rockets last night (understatement of the year)
@  DenverRocket : (12 May 2017 - 02:55 AM) Very disappointing end to an otherwise great season.
@  DenverRocket : (12 May 2017 - 01:10 AM) Stunningly bad. Out played, out coached and no one is stepping up :-(
@  slick shoes : (12 May 2017 - 01:07 AM) Well, it can't get any worse right?
@  slick shoes : (12 May 2017 - 12:35 AM) It's like Dekker has been waiting to play or something.
@  08huangj : (11 May 2017 - 12:08 PM) It is utterly baffling to me why MDA is not utilizing Dekker and Harrell. These two were integral to our dominant regular season bench!
@  DenverRocket : (10 May 2017 - 03:18 AM) Everything the TNT analysts said, I was screaming during OT. MDA blamed it on fatigue - no kidding sherlock, when you only use a 7 player rotation!
@  DenverRocket : (10 May 2017 - 03:17 AM) Sorely disappointed with that. Huge missed opportunity. I thought McHale was coaching again in overtime!
@  slick shoes : (10 May 2017 - 03:02 AM) No offensive scheme in overtime. No Parker, and no Leonard through all of overtime and you STILL can't close it out?!
@  thejohnnygold : (10 May 2017 - 02:57 AM) So much profanity in my home tonight...
@  Mario Peña : (08 May 2017 - 06:57 PM) Right Johnnygold! That was a good game!

I've never been a big fan of Kobe (understatement), but had come to respect his game more over the last couple years. But this season I got league pass, have been watching quite a few Laker games, and the respect has started to slide.

Defenders are afraid to breathe on Kobe unlike any other player in the league. This season I have seen a foul called for contact between Kobe's feet brushing into his defenders chest on a fadeaway. In last nights game, Harden was called for a foul in which Kobe pump-faked Harden into jumping straight up, then he pivoted forward and thrust his elbows into Harden's chest on the way down before shooting. The impact of calls like that isn't in the number of times Kobe goes to the line, it's in the amount of space he has to work with on the following possessions.
When LeBron rains down 28-foot three pointers like fire and brimstone or makes a one-man stampede to the rim, I see greatness.
When I watch Kobe standing at the line after missed fadeaways, I see a league protecting its investment in lucrative franchise and in a man who was prematurely anointed as the Next Jordan.

Kobe's career is at the end. You can't really compare current Kobe to old Kobe or LeBron.

Current Kobe's scoring numbers and efficency are actually better than old Kobe's and similar to LeBron's. My point is that if his name was not Kobe Bryant and his jersey did not say "Large revenue strea"--excuse me--"Lakers" on the front, I don't think he'd have the space to score at this rate.
