Stop the presses! Kobe Bryant alluded to the fact that Phil has coached two
pretty good clutch players in him and Michael Jordan.Oh my, what an
ego! What an arrogant player Kobe is!Also, this just in... Derek
Fisher said that the Lakers are good as the reason for their success in Utah.I can't take it anymore. These Lakers are so conceded. They think the
world revolves around them.Lastly, D-Will was asked if he thought
the he was the best Point Guard in the NBA. He said that yes, he was the best.
But this can be attributed to inexperience and is not bragging. In fact, as many
Jazz fans so expertly ascertain, if you got the skills to back it up, you are
just telling the truth. Oh the agony
Re: BuzzSorry but as much as I hate to admit it ...It
ain't bragging or arrogance if you can back it up with your play. That's exactly
what Kobe does. As you stated, "... you are just telling the truth." even though
the truth hurts.
Wow rvalens2, I am impressed. Not many Jazz fans would admit to what you just
did.You got my respect. Here's to the Jazz getting a good lottery
pick and becoming an elite team in the NBA.
LA has more talent. Kobe is not MJ but he is very good. He certainly is a clutch
player. He has won a lot of games for LA and sometimes shoots them
out of games, but overall he is one of the top 5 players in the league.
Boozer had a tough game for sure, but the Jazz SHOULD have been beaten inside.
Gasol, Odom and Bynum have a significant edge on Boozer, Milsap and Fes. But how do you justify losing outside game to the likes of Shannon
Brown, Jordan Farmar and Derek Fisher? Just look at the shot chart
for that disastrous 2nd quarter: the Jazz missed EVERY shot that wasn't in the
paint! No outside shooting, plus 6 turnovers (4 by Jazz guards) in
Q2 put the Jazz in a hole they couldn't dig out of.Take that quarter
out of the books and the Lakers would only lead by 3 points, something the Jazz
could have overcome at home.Nobody's talking about it, but the Jazz
guards were MIA on defense this entire series. In Q3 it was SHANNON
BROWN who stepped up in response to the Jazz run with two huge 3 pointers and a
dunk.And in game 3 it was Fisher, Brown and Farmar that torched the
Jazz, not Bynum and Odom. Even Kobe scored better against the Jazz
than against the Thunder. Boozer did well enough against bigger and
better players. What is Williams' excuse?
For all you sloanaholics,kobe makes an interesting comment,that Jackons actually etaches and coaches the players,and
NOT yells and swears at them, puts them in his doghouse, and run them through
drills, and never communicates with them,like sloan does.What the Jazz need is real coaching not slaon system coaching.Did osteertagg get better?has AK gotten better?has
miles gotten better?is boozer better than 5 years ago?what about fez and koufos and price?the only that any good
undersloan are those that invloved in thsystem and get playing time,
like deron and boozer and milsap, even aks best year was when he
played PFWhy does evey SG want to leave the Jazz,where are all those 1st round picks?its the system and lack of
player development,it's sloan.
