I think the consensus seems to be that Farmar should start in place of Fisher in order to defend Brooks and neutralize their quickness.

With Odom most likely out of the lineup, we'll need either production from Powell or Luke and might have a smaller lineup on the court for most of the game. Thus, we'll need to get some help on the inside. I think contribution from Bynum will be crucial to success in this game. We should be exploiting the inside now that Yao is out for the series. If we can't then we're a joke of a team, because as far as I'm concerned we're playing a team with no center, no T-mac, and a psychotic power forward named Ron. Add to that Scola the barbarian and Chris Rock's cousin at point, and you've got yourself one hell of a joke in an opponent. IF we can't win the next 2 games, we're a joke of a team.

Lakers- don't let me down tonight. Kobe, grow a pair and use your driving ability to cut up their defense like chop suey and Andrew, do something with your massive wall of skin besides look like a crash test dummy.

Go Lakers!

Why would you trade Kobe? Maybe in five years when he's old you could trade him for a bunch of young talent, but it would be stupid to trade him now.
