Re: The Kobe Factor

Kinda wild seeing all of those great Kobe games go to waste.

I post with Laker fans daily.

Not like some *unnecessary* who shows up in losses to rub it in Laker fans faces. How many threads has Fairweather Adam posted in when the Lakers win?

doctordrizzay is even worse. He is really close to being banned from this team board.

Adam is okay, try to keep name calling out of the posts.

The Lakers supposedly have that taken care of. They hired this guy they call a "coach" and its his job to handle that.

I can solve it for both of us. What the heck is he playing 40 mins a night in the first place ?? He can't hog the ball sitting down can he ?

Re: The Kobe Factor

R-Star does post with the Laker fans on this board pretty regularly, he's not trolling. Really the only excessive troll we have around these parts is doctordrizzay, even Adam only shows up like five times a year with a one liner.

Re: The Kobe Factor

And Kobe is not the problem. As others have touched on, somebody has to put up points, if the rest of the team feels content to play passively or shitty in general then somebody has to step up and take action. It may not necessary be conducive to winning basketball, but neither is trying to get incompetent players involved in the offense.

Re: The Kobe Factor

You guys know better than I do from watching him every game, but from what I've seen I don't really think it's fair to look at those numbers and infer that Kobe shooting and scoring a lot makes the Lakers lose. In fact I would argue the reverse is actually closer to the truth -- Kobe shoots a lot when the Lakers are losing to try to get them back in it. His efficiency has been superb this year.

To me it's similar to passing yards in football. Some of the biggest passing numbers in NFL history are put up in losses from quarterbacks trying to make up a deficit quickly. Passing the ball a lot does not cause your team to lose, it is often a symptom of falling behind. Kobe shooting and looking to score on his own is like passing, running your offense is like running the football. You try to establish the run early, but if you get down sometimes you need Kobe to try and bring you back. Everyone knows he's capable of scoring and scoring in bunches.

I agree with R-Star, the glaring issue is obviously the lack of depth, particularly with Nash and Gasol out.

R-Star isn't a Lakers troll, but he is an Adam troll.

I called it in the preseason! Ron would end up banning him from this board!

Sorry, but I literally don't remember him making a play for anyone tonight. Only time he would pass is when he picked up his dribble and didn't like the shot. But he would look hard at that rim before he did pass.

I like the bench a lot more than I did a month ago.

Denver, Clippers, Spurs... maybe the Knicks. Only teams I can think of where depth wouldn't be an issue if they were missing 2 of their 4 best players. Take Ibaka and Martin off OKC. Take Allen and Bosh off Miami.

He's trying more. Before it was "shut up Adam, leave the thread!" now he just subtly mocks him. I think the "sorry, I can just draft Norris Cole" thread is what started this.

Re: The Kobe Factor

Just want to add that R-star has trolled in here for sure in the past (re: Bynum two years ago) but at least back then I didn't mind since he was passionate and thorough about his opinion and it lead to good banter. Adam and drizzay just come in here and state a negative fact about the Lakers and leave.

"CJ Miles was averaging 6 points a game coming in to tonight"

(exits thread)

That adds nothing.

Maybe not tonight, but I'm talking about overall this season.
