That's a good one, Subby, a bit forced but a good one.

Wow... that is one of the most offensive headlines I have EVER seen on Fark - green or otherwise.

He was really amazing last night. So reliable in the clutch.

Lakers have a really good shot at the title, especially looking at how much trouble Boston is having.

No one can hit the money shot like Kobe.

He's got a sweet jumper, too.

They must like it in the butt.

He wasn't that GREAT.

Those missed free throws could have come back to bite us in the ass if it wasn't Denver.

Kobe knows how to slam it down the hole.
 
2008-04-29 11:06:34 AM  
My favorite move of Kobe's is when the guy defending him has him dead to rights, he moves right the guy is all over him, moves left, the same. He tries to go around and the guy stays with him, so instead of looking for an outlet pass he just jumps backwards and shoots the fade away j.

The 1 time in 8 that it works the announcers can't talk because Kobe's dick is shoved so far down their throats. The other times it's good defense. I call it bad basketball.

Way to share the ball, ball hog.

The Nuggets are such a disappointment. Their only problem is that their veterans lack the initiative to be leaders. In my opinion Camby needs to step up and set the tone for that entire team next year. Unfortunately for Denver fans that is never going to happen. It is a lack of maturity that is preventing them from reaching their potential. That and their inability to play defense.

Lakers have a really good shot at the title, especially looking at how much trouble Boston is having.

The Lakers have much more to worry about from the West, particularly San Antonio. Boston is at best the fifth best team in the league and the finals may well be a sweep.

Denver is the worst "good" team I've ever seen. They jack up horrible shots (Smith, good GOD man!) and respond to their coach less than the Pistons and Flip.

2008-04-29 12:36:33 PM  
Hey now at least they tried a little in this one. Nothing the nuggets or anyone for that matter can do when kobe is performing that well in the clutch.

Especially when you have role players like walton coming in and hitting huge shots.
 
2008-04-29 12:46:03 PM  
That style of play Denver threw out there will never be successful in the playoffs where teams have more time to scheme your offense up and are conscientious about getting back in transition. Except for Najera and Camby, its completely devoid of role players. Everyone just wants to create their own shots. Tough to watch.

Nice for lakers to get the sweep, but everyone else the Lakers will play from here out will obviously be a much more difficult matchup. Utah will be the complete opposite - a team who runs a structured offense with lots of ball movement. It'll be a tough matchup, but I think the lakers present more matchup problems for utah with their big 3 and snipers off the bench.

I'm not much of an nba fan, but I know a little about the game. I have no real affiliation with either of these teams, but I did get a chance to watch a couple games of this series, and I will say this much:

I have never in my entire life of watching sports seen a more blatant attempt to move a team to the next round while putting the other team in an impossible situation. The Nuggets never had a chance, and it didn't have anything to do with the Lakers. Absolutely pathetic. How do NBA fans condone this type of shiat?

What a horrible farce of a league.

Despite bynum and gasol the lakers are really soft, and I think they can be beaten down over the course of the playoffs if the opposing team (jazz and then likely spurs) decides to play some physical D, which both teams are able to provide.

I seriously doubt the lakers overall toughness, gasol has a history of disappearing when needed, and bynum is coming back from an injury and physical play might not be a perragative.

So while I doubt the jazz can get more then a game or 2 from the lakes(at home of course) I think they can soften them up some for a team like the spurs.

As for living in Enver we need to get someone to play some D and the way the team responds to karl it seems like he is already packing his bags and i dont blame him.

Hum, apparently you are not what you think (know a little about the game [unless, of course, you were being literal and a little is all you know]])- the Lakers have been whooping up on everybody since they acquired Gasol. This wasn't the "league" (I'm guessing you might be a truther), this was Denver, no D, no O, just a couple of guys showing off their one-one-one moves.

Um, what? The only game the Lakers won by less than 14 points was Game 4. How exactly do referees single-handedly engineer three 14+ point victories? What are you smoking?

Nailed it.

The Lakers were 22-4 in games Gasol played in (not counting his 3-minute injury game). 26-4 now works out to like a 70-12 season, and that's not including Bynum. The Lakers just have a ton of talent.
 
2008-04-29 01:56:11 PM  
The Nugs have to be blown up. The AI and Melo combo isn't working, only Camby plays real defense and recently it was the coach who 'quit on them.' Please. Time for a re-org.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not at all saying that the Lakers aren't a better team than the Nuggets...I'm saying that the Nuggets never even had a chance to show different. The 2 games I watched were rife with ticky-tack fouls on one side, but virtual muggings gone uncalled time and time again. It was actually disturbing. See the 2 non-existant offensive fouls and 2 ridiculous hand check fouls when the Nuggets got within 1 last night. There was no way the Nuggets were winning this series.

I believe it has to do with their image, and the NBA's dislike of it. It was blatant, and it demeans the game.

I thought the calls were one-sided as well and I've lived in Southern California (and been a Lakers fan) my whole life. The Nuggets went to the rim a LOT and were full-body checked every time but the contact was never called. That's fine and all, let 'em play, but call it the same on both sides of the floor.

Hey, what was the spread on that game? Is there a reason Kobe never let the Lakers get more than 5/6 points up at the end of game 4? I've never seen him miss so many free throws.

I agree Utah is very physical, and wouldn't be surprised to see lakers-jazz go 7, but I don't agree with your assessment of the spurs. Do they shade the gray area of dirty play - probably, but I don't see any big bruisers on their roster. I actually think the hornets match up pretty well against the spurs, and they've got homecourt, and a bit of an attitude. They've also got a better bench. Yes, spurs experience counts for something, but the end is going to come for them at some point (this season, next season???), and I'm predicting its the next round.

No. Just no. If you look at the series averages the lakers averaged 22 fouls per game, nuggets 25 per game, which makes sense given 1) lakers are a better defensive team 2) kobe bryant is the hardest person to guard in the nba at the moment. Hardly the one-sided affair you are imagining.

Both martin and anthony fouled out last night for the same thing, that is playing kobe way too tight and then body checking him when he made his move. If fisher body checked iverson the way kobe was getting it all night iverson would be flying to the floor and screaming at the refs. Fortunately kobe held his cool and the refs made the right call towards the end.

And if you want to go into bad calls, the worst call of the night was the time kobe "fouled" J.R. smith which sent him to the line for 3 free throws that tied the game. Replay clearly showed kobe standing completely still with his arms straight up behind the 3 point line (read: not undercutting like stupid najera did earlier to kobe tweaking his ankle) while smith kicked out his right foot and then crumpled to the floor to further sell the call. The other time kobe fouled him shooting a 3 was a legitimate call, but this one was just stupid.

Don't blame the refs for the nuggets pathetic performances. I think each side had their share of bad or ridiculous calls but the stats clearly show that none of the games were as one sided as they apparently were in your fantasy world.

For the record, these are the series stats:

Lakers shot 119 free throws.
Nuggets shot 116 free throws

Lakers committed 90 fouls.
Nuggets committed 102 fouls.

That's about as even you're gonna get in any 4 game series.

wolfpaq777 nice backup.

I think phil jackson did a great job of employing a sort of hybrid zone against the nuggs. Every time Iverson got around fisher, odom or gasol was there in his path. They also gave weak side help to radmonovich or walton when gaurding melo, and always forced him to go left. It really frustrated both those guys as they want to go against their defender one on one.

I agree the one call on Kobe versus J.R. Smith was BS, so was about every call against Kobe. The call that Anthony fouled out on? Are you kidding me? He didn't even touch him.

And you can't use raw stats to prove a point about this, because I wasn't referring to any QUANTITY of fouls that were or were not called. I'm talking about the standard being set and the timing of the calls. The referees allowed the Lakers to play a much more physical defensive style then they did the Nuggets. The Nuggets are obviously not a strong defensive team. They have the talent, but not the desire. However, every time the attempted to step up and play a defensive style like the Lakers did, they got whistled, so they would back off. It's just sad that they didn't even get the chance to try and step it up.

I think the Lakers, and Kobe in particular, got rewarded for their reputation, and the Nuggets got punished for theirs. I see this happen all the time with the NBA, which is why I think it sucks ass.

I think the Lakers, and Kobe in particular, got rewarded for their reputation, and the Nuggets got punished for theirs. I see this happen all the time with the NBA, which is why I think it sucks ass.


Whine on boy.
