Bye-bye homecourt advantage! This Lakers team never learn their lesson, and they'll be blaming themselves again at the end of the season... ouch!!

I fully agree with Coach Byron. Only Kobe and Fish has that 'swagger'...the rest have thoughts only but it is already beginning to 'bloat their heads off' specially Bynum. Gasol just needs a little adjustment from that 'finese' type to being a 'swagger with finese'. The rest when they have a good game, the next game(s) will surely be a ho-hum because they already thought they're doing okay, they have mesmerized the fans and the emdia, and so on. They need consistency all year-round (or shall we say all their 'career'-round) to have that 'swagger' brand tatooed in them. It takes real heart and devotion not just money and fame. So wherever they may be, they wil be regarded and remembered as true talented warriors of the game. Not only as a Laker but a pro ball player.

Having a "swagger" doesnt mean you're a better player. It just means you're arrogant. In that department, Kobe's "swagger" is greater than all the previous Lakers combined!

Swagger doesn't win games, but it sure makes things much more interesting. Nobody wants another Spurs, fundamentals alone equals BOOORING!!!

You must be a referee for the NBA. If you are, then I agree with you, the Lakers will win. But how many of your buddy refs are going to go along with you and make sure to it that the Lakers get all the breaks!

What kind of swagger can you really have when you come in second place?

Only Champs can walk that walk.
