Nice to see my boys hand it to the Lakers in L.A. in a knuckle bitter.
Your boys?! You traitor, Matthew! You move outta state and you ditch your former boys? Shame on you...
Yeah, that was a nail biter last night, and we unfortunately came out on the short end of the stick (again). Damn, the Lakers are aggravating. They've lost about 5 or 6 games this year where they had double digit leads near the 4th quarter, and it looked like they had the game well in hand. Yet time and time again, they somehow let it slip away...
That's 'cause our defense sucks much ass, and Kobe hasn't been "clutch" this year, like he has been in years past. We've lost games against the Spurs, Kings, Suns, etc. all in the last minute or two of the game. Pissing me off something fierce! Kobe had at least his third triple double of the season last night, but again couldn't hit the broad side of a barn in the second half, so it was all for naught.
I keep waiting for the Suns to come crashing back down to Earth, but they keep putting up the W's, basically by outscoring all their opponents, since they're not playing much D.
As for Kobe's tiff with the Mailman, eh, I think it's been blown out of proportion. I thought his comments weren't that outta line. He was just sticking up for his teammates, especially the couple guys who would be in danger of losing their roster spot if Malone came back. He didn't rip Malone or anything dumb like that. Karl's just being a baby right now.
As for the "me" comment, well, Shaq's said that over and over the past several years and no one took issue with it. Everything was always "I", "me", "my", "mine" a lot of the time he spoke of the team and his teammates. Again, no biggie. They all know it's Kobe's team anyway, so the fact that Kobe reiterated that publicly ain't that big a deal IMO.
The drama never ends in Laker Land... Whatever.
