Not being a crazy fanboy, that's just how it is. He took the first half to read the Spurs' gameplan, you think a player of Kobe's caliber isn't able to do that?
no he didnt, a player of Kobe's caliber wouldnt do that. I think he was pulling the whole, "every one calls me a selfish player (or something of this nature) so, i'm going to get my teammates involved and prove everyone wrong." His problem is he takes it to the extreme. When he finds that balance like in the 3rd and 4th, when he was tag-teaming w/ gasol, he is practically unstoppable. Or Phil Jackson's reasoning would also explain his scoring absence. With that said, i think it will go 2-2, and who wins game 5 will win game 6. I'm still going w/ the spurs.
oooo thats pretty nasty. a 30 point win for LA.
So Boston finally won an away game, but my god was it the most boring play off game I've ever scene in my entire life. It was as though neither team had any life in them at all I mean yeah they still won by like 10+ points but still....
Well i dont see the lakers choking, so most likely they should go to the next round.
But man, the type of finish the last game had was something the NBA did not need. It always seems like the NBA has this type of call during the playoffs the past couple years. Referring is hard, but the NBA has a problem. Referring shouldnt be the main topic of discussion, and yet it is. It diminishes the game.
There should have been a foul called, no doubt. After viewing the replay, it's clearly a foul on the court, not on the shot. Barry dribbled. Dribble=/=shooting.
...Western Conference Champion LAKERS.
..yes, this is a double post.
Celtics vs Lakers. any predictions? i'm hoping Celtics will take it in 7.
