I am truly happy that Kobe is not playing in the All-Star game!!! I'm even more thrilled that the

LAKESHOW has done so well without him and Andrew Bynum....As a long-time Laker Fan;

(since 1967) I know that this is one of the most talented Laker teams I have seen in years!!!

Now is the time to put together a long winning streak, that will send the message to ALL

the teams in the NBA... The LAKESHOW is the REAL DEAL!!! Cleveland will not be in the

Finals neither will Boston....But it doesn't make a difference anyway to us, because, the

LAKESHOW will beat any team in the Finals..GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!FLASH WITH THE CASH!!!!!!!

Kobe who? The Lakers just mowed thru three playoff contenders without him. I'm glad that common sense prevailed and despite the lure of playing in front of a football sized crowd I think Bryant's legacy will be more dependent on rings not all stars.

Gasol justifying his all star selection, although I personally thought he wasn't deserving. But obviously Gasol was given an opportunity to emerge from Bryant's shadow even for a few games.

If I was Bryant I might sit out until all the nagging injuries heal. This stretch without Bryant is helping develop their bench. It also is giving confidence to other players on the team

If you took all the stars that sat out the NFL All Star game and the stars who will sit out of the NBA All Star game, glued them together and shot them into outer space they would produce enough light to out shine the sun.

LO is right. snarling, trash talking and chest thumping does not indicate fierceness/cometetiveness or toughness...it demonstrate insecurity. Kevin Garnett does this everytime.he turns off a lot of basketball fans

Kobe is typical of all black players...lazy, over paid and ungreatful that he has an opportunity to play profesionally.

The NBA allstar game is a meaningless game. Kobe should rest and get ready for 2nd half of the season.

He's lazy because he skipped the AS Game to heal up and reecooperate?

Hmmm, Lets see: Risk getting further injured in a game meaning NOTHING -OR- REST through said MEANINGLESS game and return to the team HEALTHY and ready for the part that actually counts....Oooohh...tough one!

My take on the rest of your silly post is: YOU are bitter, lonely and angry at the world that a black man can do what you cannot duplicate in a dream.You project your failure here.

BTW, "WEST VALLEY DAVE SMITH"? What are you, a used Car salesman? LOL

I can see you know with your paisley shirt tucked into a pair of 2nd hand store grand-pa pants, melon size belt buckle and a cheap cowboy hat...:

"She's a runner! tell you what, since I like you, ill go ahead and giv'er to ya' fer 25, no $22-hun-ered'!

LMAO! Youre in the wrong Forum to Troll.

I would to.Why work for the jews for free?It's in his contract as monetary bonus if he is selected to the team,no mention that he must play in it.If all the slave watusies awakened as Koby has the league (Jews) would mandate play if voted onto the roster.Finally the slaves are thinking like the masters!!
