wtf Lenard is back with the nugs?
He's gotten better with his shot. It was a reasonable gamble there's really no point of getting mad. The Lakers really did fought hard tonight... coming back from a 18 point deficit and forcing an OT? I gotta give a standing ovation. :clap:Brian34Cook said:For one.. Luke is like the worst shooter on the team.. yea he played well but shouldnt be excused for that bull**** he just pulled..
they had one more god damn timeout, no?
It's not what about Luke has done throughout his career. He's been knocking down those threes for a few months and has been carrying a hot hand. Yes, it would been awfully nice to have Kobe shoot the last shot, but do you want to see another ending that happened in New Jersey where Kobe was force to get an awkward pass, make a few dribble 28 feet away from the basket, and shoot the basketball fading away? No.Brian34Cook said:I think I've seen it all when people are OK with the one of the WORST SHOOTERS, if not worse, on the Lakers takes the final shot and misses in god damn overtime.. What the hell? Just because Luke played good?
Yeah that makes sense since intially the last play was for Kobe to cluster around a bunch of big guys and then shoot out like a comet and free himself from the double or triple team. Too bad the comet play doesn't really work anymore for the Lakers anymore.Bartholomew Hunt said:The reason Kwame was in is because he is the strongest screen setter. Clearly you need that to get your guy open. It didn't quite work for Kobe, but it did work to get Luke open in the corner after Kwame gave it back to him. Cook would have titty bumped him, then cried. Okay, he's not that soft. See Dwyane Wade hit.
Do we even have a shooter on this team? :biggrin:CDRacingZX6R said:Yeah, but Cook wasn't in the game. Which isnt Lukes fault.
Luke isn't the coach, Phil should have made the substition.. Having all shooters on the floor would have made that last pass much better, but there wasn't the option.
