================================================================

1-0 last night with the sweat it out until the end Bulls pick.  Before I get to today's predictions, write-ups, and picks...I absolutely have to tackle the Kobe Bryant situation (again).

The past month has absolutely crippled the Lakers for the next 3-5 years IMO.  The way Kobe, and more importantly the management, handled this whole achilles/contract/return is disgraceful.  The Lakers were playing competent basketball for the first month of the season, playing .500 basketball, and looking like they are having fun doing it.  Kobe comes back, their scoring drops 5 points per game, they go 2-4 overall with one of the wins coming when Kobe gets hurt. 

Here's the biggest statistical reason why Kobe should not have come back this season....they scored 56 fast break points in the six games that Kobe was back.  That's less than 10 points per game on a fast break.  You have Mike D'Antoni, notorious for getting out and running...before Kobe came back they were averaging 15 fast break points per game. 

Now I'm putting all the blame on Kobe Bryant in this situation.  His selfishness and blatant refusal to adjust his game to meet the benefits of the team is embarrassing.  You look at the last 3 champions and they all include players/teams/coaches that adjusted individually to meet team goals.  Kobe has been so incredibly steadfast that he is going to come back quicker than anyone ever has from this injury and that he hasn't lost a step and blah blah blah.  Guess what idiot, you submarined the team for two weeks...guilted them into a horrendous contract that cripples them financially for the next two years..they don't have the ability to bring in the 3-4 free agents that they need to.

As most of you may have been able to figure out, I'm an intensely huge fan of NBA basketball.  The Celtics are my team, and I've hated the Lakers forever because that's what we do.  However, I know that for the NBA to be great, the Lakers have to be great.  I've viewed Kobe as the best player of the 2000's.  They are now going to be more exciting, more free, and I will be backing them more often than not.


well my friend your stats are accurate in this write-up although, the don't speak the entire truth. The fact that Farmar, and Blake were out during those games might have some impact on the fast break points. kobe is a natural scorer. he played PG in most of those games how much more of an adjustment could he have made. Don't mistake passion and compettive spirit for selfishness. A.P did same thing for the vikings, it worked out for him and he was celebrated nationally. Rose sat out an entire yr and still got hurt. So sitting out gurantees nothing. as far as the $$$ go the lakers brass didnt antcipate filling up staples every night with Jodi meeks and Swaggy P out there. kobes extenstion will pay for itself, no one signs players on the premise they will be hurt. This guy is loved in L .A. they would never give him the peyton manning treatment.  Check the history of the team, 3-4 free agent pick ups has never gotten them anywhere. Its the block buster trade, and surrounding it with lower level contracts to get it done. After this yr kobe and nash are the only players on the books money will not be an issue. ( Research the Time Warner deal)

oak st. inexplicably fouls under 20 sec. up 19pts. la tech player misses one free throw  the camera pans over to the guys on the bench looking up at the score board, one guy holds up 3fingers. thats how many points la tech would need to score to cover. but that shud be impossible because shot clock is off and oak st shud dribble out the ball. but no, the same guy who committed the foul dribbles down(up 18 pts) and pulls a 25ft 3pointer.........WTF. la tech gets rebound, dribles down and knocks a three pointer to kill the oak st-4

i think there will be especially if you are counting field goals as scores. cant imagine you getting very good odds on that prop. unless of course you are betting against the score.
