The quote if funny because before the game Kobe made a quote about Pau Gasol needing tp put on his big boy pants and get with the team.

Fallout Boy: Not everyone wants to be MJ. I think you meant to say they want to be great like MJ, not mimic his every move like it was a game of horse. NBA players want to create their own legacy and play style. They don`t go running down the court and drive to the basket with their tongues out. That is just pathetic. 

/yes, over your head. As in the expression, over one`s head, which means when something is too complicated for someone to handle


You're pissed at Kobe Bryant for sticking his tongue out while playing basketball.

IAmRight: Intentional fouls off the ball are unsportsmanlike and should result in at least a technical foul every time they are performed. Not because of "protecting players" - they can still foul him legitimately IF HE HAS THE DAMN BALL. Intentional off-the-ball fouls ruin the sport for the sake of a minor advantage.

If you actually think it's a legitimate strategy, then you think winning is more important than playing basketball, and I feel sorry for you.


WHY is this just being brought up? When Howard was traded everyone in the league knew what his weakness is, hell every casual NBA fan knows. He is not a first year player, in fact he has played for quite awhile now. He has been fouled on purpose throughout his whole career. So they should just change the rules because it effects the Lakers now?

Fallout Boy: Dafatone: Fallout Boy: Poor Kobe. I think he is starting to realize that he`ll never match and exceed that 6 titles. Someone tell him to stick out his tongue some more and play pretend while he still can.

[i.imgur.com image 850x573]

Yeah. He only has 5 rings and is 5th alltime in points. But someone did better, so he's a failure and he hates his life.

That went over your head. No, he isn`t a failure, and he isn`t a failure because MJ was better than him. He is a pretentious wannabe who desperately wants to be the next MJ, and I enjoy laughing at him when he fails at pretending.

Over my... what?

Out of the tens of thousands of shots they've taken, a handful look exactly the same! Gasp!

And of course Kobe wants to be MJ. Everybody wants to be MJ. I don't see you laughing at every other basketball player playing today, only the guy with the most rings and the most points.

Were you laughing tonight?

The thing about Kobe haters is their stupid predictbility and constant moving the goalposts.

30k points all time, current nba leading scorer, with more minutes on his legs than probably anyone in the league.

Deal with it. Oh wait, you cant.

TheJoe03: frtmn7: So only Teams in the West came up with this? It is the NBA, you play every team at least once no matter what. Why weren't "west coast" team doing this before this year?

I really don't know, I thought they were hacking him when it made sense, but I'm saying he can't get away with mediocrity anymore now that he plays in a conference with more than 3 good teams. I just don't recall hack a Dwight back when he was on the Magic, you might be right, and it's sad because Don Nelson came up with Hack a Shaq a decade ago.


Teams did do it. It just wasn't an issue because he was on the Magic and nobody really talked about it either because it was understood as a good strategy or because the Magic weren't really talked about that much anyways . Go check out how many FT attempts he has averaged over the years. Now that he is on the mighty Lakers and they are losing, the fans are just coming up with excuses instead of just admitting that perhaps the team just isn't that good.

justtray: Palmer Eldritch: SHOTS FIRED

it's true, though, the league is discovering the hack-a-dwight and the Lakers can't handle it.

Yeah, and it's only a matter of time before they fix it.

It's already hypocritical as hell that they're finding flops and resting starters while letting this classless behavior go uninterrupted. They should have dealt with in 10 years ago in the hack-a-shaq age.

The fix is simple. Off the ball intentional fouls are now technicals. Problem solved.
If you don't like that, then off the ball fouls can be shot by anyone on the court.

Fouling people off the ball, and intentionally so is by far the dumbest thing in the NBA right now, rule-wise.

The best part was how Kobe saw it coming, and took a half court shot because he realizes the hypocrisy of the rule, knowing that he should be granted 3 shots for being in the act of shooting while the team was fouled. But of course they don't award him the shots, in much the same way that they don't give out fouls on any long buzzer beaters.

The only good news is that the more teams do it, the quicker Stern will have the rules changed to remove it entirely.


They already had the rules in place to fix hack-a-Shaq. The refs could have started calling 3 second violations and offensive fouls on Shaq any time they wanted to. They didn't though, so other teams had to compensate.

Malone came into the NBA as a sub .500 shooter from the free throw line and by the end of his career he was shooting .800 per season. Shaq and now Dwight are too lazy to get in the gym and put in the work. Shaq might have had a better excuse with the broken hand as a kid but the fastest way to stop the hack-a-shaq or hack-a-dwight is to make the free throws.

Bonanza Jellybean: Dafatone: I'ma disagree here. That's just kinda... lame.

I'm tired of the NBA where nobody ever wins, it's just that the other team loses. If you're a Houston announcer, why would this win be because the Lakers did something bad?

Because the Lakers had 17-point lead in the fourth and then shiat the bed.


Pretty much, or as I like to call it:

"Western Conference - Round 1 - Sharks 5 Canucks 6"

/Give me back my hockey....
