Oh I know my friend. You're saying what you feel and there's nothing wrong with that. I took no offense to any of what you said and I know what you were trying to say as nothing can stay "up" forever BUT and it's a massive BUT, the Lakers with all this talent and all this tradition and all this championship experience should NOT be coming down this rapidly. I think this stems from the top and has trickled down and the Lakers have no identity now. What they were has been ripped away and they're desperately trying to find themselves. Poor Kobe is trying to keep them relevant by taking over but I think now he's hurting more than helping. It's admirable that Kobe shoulders the blame but if they're truly a team playing team ball and not just Kobe jacking up 30+ shots per then the whole team can shoulder it or they can bask in their success as a team.@jussayin i wasn't coming across as bold, Things happen for a reason. Top team are allowed to crash, thats what makes them that much better down the road. Lakers have too much tradition to let it go that easily.
Kobe needs to accept a role and just trust his mates and let Nash and D'Antoni do their thing for better or worse. At this point it's not going to hurt anything and it's clearly not worked Kobe's way.
