I was saying it from the perspective of the Lakers. If they can make shots, they win.

We are used to this kind of usless talk. All we need was you action. A team repeating the same mistake over and over again will never win. Be ashamed of what you have done and get in to action. I hope you read this humble advise. Your fan since 2000.

it seem like bynum is more focus on him scoring than getting rebound and blocking shot.

Kobe keep shooting the ball. Feed the ball to Bynum and the Rockets will win. You guys need to start giving us credit. You guys missed shots because most of the time there is a hand in your face. You guys shot bad behind the 3 point line, we were 5-18 from the 3 point line. You out rebound us and we win. We didn't play our best game so now what.....
The ref will be on your side today, especially Joe Crawford and I'm sure the Lakers will come with there best game. So we will see

DE JA VU! I heard this same crap from the lakers throughout last season....how many wake-up calls, statement games, motivation do you need to do something right? The lakers are fast becoming better talkers off the court than players on it...stop talking and start playing....and PLEASE, phil jackson start buying some BIG players willya....no more softies like the Gasman PURLEEEASE.
