What's up with PJ man! you have a chance to steal a game against your arch rival and you call a time out to design a play for the last shot??!?!?! Was he trying to give the game to the spurs to make up for last years non call with DF. I think he's gone soft man, it's almost as if he doesnt' have to energy to get on his players. And if this was football Rambis would've gotten fired already, his defense sucks!!

All players need to have the common sense when a whistle sound you really have to foul hard on the player with the ball to avoid a continuation basketball or a chance for a three or four points play besides it is a free fault anyway. There is no double fault in a basketball game yet.

i'll say it again, bynum thinks he's being discriminated sports writers cause he's black. unless we start saying nice things about him, he will continue to play with lack of dignity. and by all means why did he changed his offense by attempting a turn around jumper instead of attacking the basket. what a waste.
i'm beginning to believe he's at his maximum strength, a loser.

Bynum, although talented, does not appear hungry to get better. He seems to have fallen in love with his offensive game only, not realizing that becoming an elite center in the NBA means asserting himself on the defensive front. I don't think one rebound against Houston and three against the Spurs is what the Lakers had in mind when they signed this guy to an extension that will pay him $14 mil per year for 3 years beginning next year. I hope the Lakers aren't saddled with another Eddie Curry - talented offensively but plays no defense.

I know that this is not going to be read by anyone of the Lakers staff, but I´m wondering why Chris Mimm is not playing. Bynum is not playing the kind of game he should and he is expected to. He has to forget a little bit about making points and defend the rebound city a little more. Phill Jackson has to change his tactic and use Chris he has been sitting out for a long time and I know he has a lot of potential, maybe he is going to struggle with big men, but we might not know if he is not playing.
Josh Powell is another good player, he plays tough and he defends very good. Phil it is time for changes when difficult times present.
