I respect Stockton, Malone, Bird, Magic, Michael, Dr. J, Fisher, Kareem, McHale,
Doleac, Miller, Ainge, DJ, Jamal Wilkes, Moses, Gervin, Dantley, Griffith, Nash,
Nowitzki, Kidd, Shaq, Kerr, Robinson, Duncan, etc. because they all respected
the game of basketball, and the NBA.Wow, if you can talk Kobe into
respecting anything beside Kobe, maybe people would respect him.
Hi JB & Andrew,Welcome to L.A. and the Lakers.I'm glad you
guys moved away from Utah and the classless jerks that call themselves Jazz
fans, what a joke.I have friends in Utah who are Jazz fans but they
do not act and talk like the morons who make stupid comments about Kobe and Phil
Jackson. Wait until you win an NBA championship then talk later. I
have to say that not all Jazz fans are like the drunk idiots who rudely booed
Fisher because he made a decision to take care of his kid.
Hi Andrew,Just like you, I moved to L.A. from Utah with my parents
but I am now a Laker fan (just recently). I was so disappointed with the Jazz's
fans when they booed Derek Fisher who has been a great Jazzplayer until
his daughter got sick and had to move to L.A. so she can get better
treatment.I could not care less if they are rude to Kobe and the
entire Laker team but to treat Fisher the way they did when he played in Utah
was terrible !!!
I am just surprised that some of you Jazz fans talk about Kobe so much. Why
don't you talk about how your team played hard enough to win games? I am a Laker fan but I have great respect for John Stockton and Karl Malone
for the way they played... they can play ball and so does Kobe. I guess I will
dislike him too if a player that good is going against my home team. It is also
very sad that Derek Fisher who made a decision to move to L.A. because of his
daughter, gets booed when he goes to your arena... when he went back to the
Staples center playing for Jazz, we gave him a standing ovation for the way he
plays the game not because he changed uniforms... have some class guys, it is
just a game, there is more to life than a championship trophy!
Yes, Kobe Cryant will be fine for game 5 because he was never hurt for game 4.
We have to face this, it is hard to respect Kobe Bryant, and whining about it
won't change it. I live in So. Cal. Kobe has a past, and it consists of trips to
Colorado, expensive rings for his wife, getting Shaq kicked to the other coast,
and asking for a trade. He has been propped up by the NBA as heir apparent for
Michael, and "given" the MVP this year, and unless he can, with the help of
David Stern, beat the Jazz the window of the Kobe era will pass. He does not
deserve to be compared with #23 because without Shaq or Stern, he can't do
it.Sorry to not respect your hero, but he just doesn't measure up.
He's good, but not great, and if the NBA machine will let him be just "good",
people will respect him for being good.
Ok, I have hated Kobe for years, but I have also seen him play for years, and
that guy was hurt last night without question. He may be a ball hog and a total
egocentric, but the guy is tough. Just ask the ripped tendons in his shooting
hand.If I were the Jazz, I wouldn't call blowing a double digit lead
in the fourth quarter and surviving an injured Kobe any reason to celebrate
heading into LA for game 5.
my point exactly! NBA on conspiracy, wow take that up with the commisioner!Its hard to be on top (like kobe)... you are striked at and boo-ed by
most.I am a hardcore lakers fan and love kobe, but do you see me
taking down Williams??? or Boozer? Both who are very great palyers? Even
Williams and Boozer respect kobe.
For a gruop that has never won an NBA title you guys sure talk some smack!. Kobe
3 titles the Lakers 14, Phil Jackson 9. Utah Jazz O. Have some respect little
Just because you losers won at home doesn't mean your winning the series. Now
you have to go back to our town and lose 2 here and it's over. Just think a year
from now or for eternity no one will remember you guys won 2 games at home.
Stop fouling kobe! No wonder he hss ahurt back
Hollywood is in California! Exactly where you will lose these next two games.
I love how when Rockets' fans would come into this forum typing fingers ablazin'
about AK's memorable flop, Jazz fans paid no heed. They Completely excused the
accusations and despereately tried to justify AK's actions. Yet, now when you're
on the other side of it (Kobe) it suddenly becomes a hot-button issue that you
all feel needs to be addressed in order to uphold the integrity of the NBA. Give me a beak, of course this is the problem with fans in general, but
Jazz fans just seem to take the double standard approach to a whole new level.
Get over the foul discrepancy, and get over your inadequacies of being in a
small market, and claiming "NBA conspiracy" whenever you lose to the Lakers.Soon I might have to put you all in the same category as those losers
who keep trying to make the argument George W. was the Sept. 11 architect and
financier. If you had a player as good as Kobe and as aggresive, you'd expect
the calls too.
One thing that struck me odd at Sunday's game was the referee leaning down over
Kobe while Kobe was on the floor with the tweaked back, checking to see if he
was okay. That same courtesy(??) wasn't extended to Price when he got slammed to
the floor. Any one with back problems knows that you can NOT twist and turn to
the degree that Kobe did after his injury. He seems to be able to turn it on and
off at will. A great player he is, but that is overshadowed by his egotism, his
acting and his coach! The words that came out of Phil's mouth after the game
were pathetic. As far as the Jazz fans, yup - we've got a bunch of idiots in
the crowd - somewhat like the Laker fans. The classiest player on the Laker's
team is Derek Fisher, a credit to the sport and a fine ball player. Great game,
Jazz - and I must say the same for the Lakers because they didn't give up. GO
JAZZ and get one in LA.
It only affected him when he was missing shot not when he was making them. For
example: Made shot at end of 1st half compared to missed shots in OT.
The Lakers are a very good team. They don't need the refs to help them. With
five minutes left in the game, the Jazz had a substantial lead. Then what
happens, we can't buy a call. Memo is hit with a T for throwin his hand forward
(wholavich or whatever his name does the same and no call), Kobe shoves AK to
the ground and AK gets the foul (the commentators got a laugh out of that one),
Kobe grives by Boozer and they call a foul on Boozer (the replay show that no
one touched him) etc., etc. The fact is that a LA-Celtic fix is in. The NBA
wants it bad to boost ratings. Watch for more of the ref's disparity in next
games. It would be so cool if the Jazz can beat LA and the refs!
Kobe fake? C'mon is this really news? He starts by saying 'no excuses' but then
says he can't move or cut the same because of his back injury. The guy
contradicts himself in one sentence and doesnt blink an eye. Look very closely
at Kobe and you'll see a child that has no sense of reality...Let him continue
to think he's the fastest gun in the west. It just makes it really entertaining
when he runs out of bullets.
Ok i can tell there are a lot of people that dislike the lakers (more kobe)... I
am a lakers fan and great fan of basketball and i can proudly admit that the
lakers' performance was not up to par sunday afternoon. As for the Jazz, they
just out played the lakers.We all have out reasons why lakers lost,
but placing the blame on Mr. Bryant is no excuse why the lakers lost. It was a
combination of everyone on the team. Early foul trouble, multiple turn-overs in
the 3rd, Phil leaving Kobe in the game for that long (with the injury), Their
free-throws.The Jazz just converted on the laker turnovers and took
advantage of Kobe's injury. I just think everyone expects too much
from #24, for his lack in performance due to injury, he still mangaed to score
33 points and 10 assists.And playing with the flu aint that amazing
to me... playing with an injured back, which is crucial in having healthy in the
game of basketball is more impressive.plus i'm sick of these
comparisons between #24 and #23... they played in different eras of basketball.
Jordan already left his mark, let kobe.
Great win Jazz!Kobe is not faking.Kobe is playing great
but without Fisher the series would have been over already.AK is not
going to have a good series against a physical team like Houston but against a
finesse team like the lakers the guy plays like a stud.I love Prices
energy.D-will is the man. 29pts 14 assists.Key points to
winning on Wed:Dont let Fish score the 3 and get him in foul troubleBox out Gasol, no offensive rebounds and easy buckets.Jazz are due
for a Road victory.Win or lose I love this Team!
Showed more heart playing hurt than Kobe.I want one of those posters
of the Walton swat too...
And Price swatting Walton is exactly why you go up with 2 hand and put it down
hard. If he dunks it there, he quiets the fans, he gives LA momentum. Too bad he
blew it. What a block!!!!!!!! Posterized baby!!!!
4 stitch cut inflicted by Turriaff bothersome, but he will still play!
Kobe is a "first class faker!" He said he hurt his back because he was
losing! They will not win in LA, becuse the NBA wants a big money market team in
the finals. The Jazz will not get the calls! It's the same old story. That's the
reason a lot of fans don't watch NBA!
Can't blame Walton for getting a clean layup swatted by Price (What is Price,
5'10, 87 pounds dripping wet???).It's not like Walton is a 7 footer
or anything...Show's the heats of each team.That's gotta
be a poster someday...
D-Will has been hurt most of the Playoffs but you don't hear him cryin to the
media or trying to get the officials to bail him out in case he chokes! He's
Better than that! And I really would have loved to have seen and heard Bill
Walton when his son embarrassed the family!
To bad Daddy Walton wasn't Announcing when that Curly haired Punk got Blocked by
little Ronnie. then he acted liked a Baby and laid down by the hoop. AS every
fan Laughed at him. For the Jazz to win the SeriesBoozer needs to
Man up Odom.Let Kobe Score, just don't let anyone else we have the Best
defenders to guard Kobe (Ak, Brewer, Harp, Korv. Thats 24 fouls.No more
easy ones for Gasol or Odom.Williams Drive on fish early. Don't you know
fish don't swim up stream.
Classic. Kobe says "I'm not making any excuses" and follows it right up with an
excuse.I'm not sure if the Jazz can pull this out, expecially with
Booz being MIA, but I'm glad the they saved some face at home.
Kobe was trying his "maybe if I fake it enough I can look like Mike when he had
the flu and won a championship". Kobe unfortunately is so inconsistent that his
team will not make it to the finals this year. Kobe is the poster child for very
bad behavior and lack of a champions character. LA is a team with a bright
futurejust not with Kobe Bryant.
Jazz in 6...(wow, I wonder if calling them out really affect the
outcome.)That would make a Jazz 4 game sweep.Oh, and I
didn't notice any fans pulling on their 24 Laker jerseys at the end of game 3 or
Me too...Only if there weren't 4 others on the team.Michael, Bird Magic, Stockton--- all made the other four players around them
better.Kobe just needs four players around him to draw salaries, but
not ONE of them plays to their potential when he is on the court.Otherwise, I'd let you take him on your team. Enjoy the frustration of
watching a team game decimated.
Well whatever his name is, who cares. Anyway I hope his next excuse is an eye
problem, where he can't see showing up for games 5, 6 or 7.
Kobe maybe everything your are saying but I would take him on my team any day.
Kryptonite was to Superman and the Heel was to Achilles what the Road is to The
Jazz. Following that analogy, you can see why the Lakers will win it in 7.Enjoy your close victories, Jazz fans. The end result will be yet
another cruel blow to an already punch drunk fan base.
I could be wrong and if so, please accept my apologies...but I do believe Utah
was the only team without home court to win a first round SERIES! If so, does
that say anything about this team?
Kobe deserves nooooo respect.That last foul on AK, Kobe did his
standard drive and dive into AK, but AK moved out of the way, and MVP aggrevated
his injury. Way to help the team there big guy...As for his back,
I'm sure it hurt on that last "AIR-BALL"...Why is a supposed MVP
throwing a game away when he shouldn't be on the court.Kobe is the
greatest egoist ever to play the game.
Players get hurt all the time, I am sure Kobe is hurt, is he as hurt as his
grimaces and falling to the floor lead you to believe? I doubt it. Good players
play throught the pain. Look at D-Will. He has been hammered throughout the
post season. I haven't heard him complain unless he is specifically asked.
I'm not convinced the Jazz players will feel that game 5 is like game 7, where
if you don't win you go home. They pretty much need to treat game 5 like it's a
win or go home proposition. If they don't I fear they'll not have their heads
properly into the game.Their foul shooting and layups (made or
missed) percentages early on will show just where their heads are.Deron's slowly getting it, but I still see him taking too long to get the
offense going (takes his time getting across the time line). Even in the 4th
yesterday he did that a number of times. Coasting. You can't do that and expect
to beat a good team.Win game 5 and game 6 becomes a donnybrook.
Won't that be fun?
I agree with the other posts--when/if your back is that bad, you can't just all
of sudden act like it is not.Kobe was right "it is a back". I also
am not buying his show--although he is from Hollywood.When he got
the ball he was suddenly capable of spinning and shooting while fading away and
then suddenly again he could not get up and had to stay on the floor???? Save
it you phony.This was just an excuse for the MVP when the JAZZ TEAM
beat him. The NBA and these pathetic individual-centric stars think they
freakin world revolves around them. The JAZZ TEAM showed they were better the
last two games.In LA, the Laker starting 5 plus 3 refs beat us.
That game of 5 on 8 is tough to win at.126 Laker FT's to 76 ft's for
the Jazz. That lopsided total through three game is so preposterously lopsided
there really is no argument that could even be made to say that is plausible.
We have to be soooooo much better than the Lakers to have actually
won these last 2 games.Go Jazz!!!!
Check your facts buddy. LA won 2 games in Denver, SA won in Phx, NO won in
Dallas, Utah won 2 in Houston and Houston won 1 in Utah. that makes 7 games won
on the road in the western conference. Didn't Cleveland, Orlando and Detroit all
win on the road as well? that is a lot more than 3 road wins in round 1. If you
are referring to only the Utah Houston series then yes only 3 were won onthe
road and @ by the Jazz but it sounds like you are talking aboue the entire
playoffs round one and not just one series.
@ cuncaboNope. sorry, never been a fan of Vegas and been fortunate
enough to never live there.
He would fake his injury because he is out for personal glory. It his team
loses then he has an excuse. If his team wins then he looks like a hero. Cobee
is no Michael Jordan.
re: St. George FanThere were actually more than three road games won in
the first round of the playoffs - the Lakers won two themselves. they had to, in
order to sweep Enver (remember that there was no 'D' in Denver) As I recall
there were several series that went less than seven games, so by definition
someone had to win on the road. No you might be referring to the fact that in
the Utah/Houston series there were three road wins (2 by Utah, one by Houston)
which made it an exciting series.I love the Jazz and hope that they
can pull this series out. If they are able to make it all the way it would be an
incredible story because there is not much chance that they would have home
court advantage against anyone that they play. To me, that would counter balance
all the road woes that they have had all season. Best way to prove yourself is
bring home the trophy!!
Kobe really did hurt his back. He was not faking it at all. I was upset with the
overtime foul that they say he hurt his back again on. Kobe put his elbow in
AK's chest and pushed him over. Why is that a foul on AK? Terrible call but
every game has bad calls and I am sure if you look at it the Jazz got a few
calls in their favor. The Jazz lost games 1 & 2 cause they got outplayed. The
Jazz outplayed LA in games 3 and 4. Game 4 was just like the Houston/Utah
series. The team that missed more free throws lost. But what a great game and
Kobe's shot to end the first half was outstanding and I hate Kobe and have since
he entered the league and alsways will but the guy can play ball. GO Jazz!!!!!
You guys are idiots. Why in the world would Kobe fake his injury? You say its
always excuses.. but at the same time Kobe gave props to AK and the Jazz.
Magnus are you my old friend Rick in Las Vegas?
You both are clueless. Back pain for the most part limits people it doesn't
debilitate them. Ask your chiropractor. Bill Chiropractor
Kobe bein hurt didnt make a difference when he is hurt he just posts up and
scores at will and when he is 100% he drives in and hits jump shots it didnt
make a difference in his points he still scored over 30 so thats not an excuse
By kobe faking he is in a no lose situation. If the lakers lose it was because
of kobes back, if they win it goes down as A"gutsy performance" by all the media
knuckleheads. dont buy it, anyone who has had back pain knows you cant run or
jump and play basketball like he was doing sunday. Im sure he will be just fine
on wednesday. Jordan did the same thing against the jazz claiming he had the flu
in the finals which we all know wasnt true. Kobe learned from Michael that it
makes great story line for the media and just in case he loses, he has a excuse.
Phil Jackson is a "gravy trainer" coach. He is not a good coach. Sloan or any
other coach would have just as many title if they had Jordan, shaq and kobe.
great win...and great play...Boozer may not have scored as much but I really
think he has stepped up his defense in games 3 and 4. I just have one question
and I could be wrong but not sure...Didn't Kirilenko get a foul called in ot for
allowing Kobe to reach out, put a hand in his chest, and shove him to the floor?
There have been calls I questioned in this series...like the base line drive
when Kobe wrapped his arm completely around Brewer in order to get in the
lane...but I understand the refs vantage point can affect what he sees. In the
Kirilenko foul there is no possible way to have seen it any way except a
gift...the ref was right on top of it and it was just a blatant reach and
shove...and to be honest, it was not an attempt to create anything...so it was
Kobe looking for a stoppage of play and knowing he would get the "Jordan rules"
Kobe was definitely putting on an acting job out there...too bad he was as good
as Jackie Chan...got the physical skills but fell out of character a few times.
I've got a bad back too and can confirm that it doesn't "go away" in spurts so
that he can make a few plays, then "come back" when he gets eaten up by
Kirilenko or Brewer. The ONLY thing that Kobe hurt on Sunday was his ego!!As for the play of the game, props to Price for coming out of no where
and stuffing Walton like he was a 6th grader going for a layup. Did you notice
that Price is only 6'2" (or there abouts) and was trailing the play by 10 yards
or so!! Keep up the highlight film work Walton!!
as for kobe, he might be the best player in the NBA right now but for some
reason Kobe and laker fans have to keep coming up with reason why he cant beat a
couple of no name players from utah...Weird... the only guy on that team with
any class and pure talent in fisher day in and day out. Jazz may not win but if
they dont win it wont be because kobe beat them it will be because the Jazz beat
themselves. GO JAZZ!!!!!
For Walton Jr. Man, the sooner that family line gets out of the NBA the better.
The wind storm last night was just the air rushing through the gap in ol' Bills
front teeth. Otherwise, I think the push for laker/celtic seris is too strong to
let the Jazz get one in LA.
I'm using the secret to attract positivity for the Jazz and not focus on
negative feelings for the Lakers. Go Jazz! I support you all the time.
Yet once again the posts are filled with negative remarks concerning the
competition. The Jazz won. The Lakers lost. The reverse has also been true.
On Wednesday the Lakers might win again. Then we'll see the "Trade Boozer the
Loser" and "Ship Sloan to Chicago" posts again. Give credit where credit is
due. The Lakers are a good team that has the potential to win the Championship.
They would have to go through the Jazz to do it. Can they? Yes. Will they?
I hope not, but I'm not going to bad-mouth the Lakers or their fans in the
process. That's just not sportsmanship. Maybe if the fans had as much respect
for the game and each other as the players do our kids would show respect too.
Just a thought.Coach W
Kobe is an amazing player, but one thing that makes watching him so frustrating
is that he one of the best in the league at drawing cheap fouls. I don't blame
the refs for that, Kobe is a master, and what he does is force the refs to call
fouls that they usually let go. A perfect example was when Harpring was on him
and was giving him a hip-check so Kobe swept the ball through and basically
hooked Harprings arm and went straight into a shot. The ref had to call it
because it looked like Harpring grabbed his arm, but Harpring didn't cause the
contact Kobe did, he does that alot.I don't think Kobe is faking the
injury and I think it is going to be a problem for him for the rest of the
playoffs (2-3 more games by my reckoning). Back injuries are tough and they
take time to heal, just ask Boozer.How about AK? He has really
stepped up this series, I like that he is trying to assert himself in the post
early in the game, it helps him get his confidence up.Jazz in 7, if
Kobe was not faking. You have to be an idiot to think that. He lost lift and
the ability to finish plays plus he wasn't even guarding his man very hard esp.
the last qtr. and OT. Actually Kobe was stupid not to go out of the game in the
4th. He was actually hurting his team not helping.
To the Lakers fan who said something about shutting up until the Jazz win one on
the road when it matters (something to that effect), only three road games were
won in round one of the playoffs, two of them by the Jazz. I'd say that's
winning when it counts. Hopefully, they can win one in L.A. They are certainly
Kobe should win a couple Emmy's this year. He acts great at playing "The guy who
can look like he was fouled with no one around him." "Getting injury when
someone bumps into him." Kobe is a cry baby and the newest cry baby is Labron
You taught your team to get the ball to Kobe and now you are not happy with
them. Gee. Basketball is a game of instincts except for truly cerebral players
like Fish. You can't expect them to undo all these years of Kobe being the
center of attention. If you didn't want them to do that, why keep him out there?
You could afford to lose Sunday, but perhaps not on Wednesday,so you may have
hurt your team's chances if he can't come back -- which I am pretty confident he
can. Oh well. Maybe you will have damaged your team's psyche, though. And yes
Turiaff's foul after the whistle did warrant an ejection, whether he meant to
hurt Price or not.
hopefully Utah won't fall for the lame duck routine of Colby Bryant. Yes he did
"tweek" his back but he also finished the game pretty strong. The guy is the
best in the NBA - no doubt- but like Michael Jordan he has a way of playing mind
games with the competition as well and playing up an injury to lull the
compeition into a false sense of security. Hopefully the Jazz won't fall for it.
Expect Colby to be 110% on Tuesday.
There are reasons Utah won, not excuses for the Lakers' loss. The reasons?
Kobe hurt his back, one of the most painful injuries known to man. As one who
has had ruptured disks for years, I know what real pain is, and watching Kobe
trying to get to his feet a couple of times, I felt for him. Sometimes a back
can hurt so bad that you can barely breathe, let alone speak or walk. Kobe
should have come out of the game immediately, iced his back down, stretched, and
rested his back. Now there's a chance he won't be 100 percent for Game 6, when
the referees will give many calls to the Lakers because they'll be playing
before a home crowd. Another reason the Jazz won is that Deron Williams was
aggressive and hot. Also, Boozer actually left his guy to help out a few times,
trusting his teammates to rotate. Gasol missed some critical shots. Turiaff
got kicked out. Kobe kept shooting despite his injury, overconfident in his
abilities to continue making shots even though he was in pain. Anybody remember
how Stockton hurt his eye and kept shooting, and the Jazz ended up getting
Hey Laker fans...I haven't been on the blog since Friday afternoon when you were
spouting something about sweeping and going 16-0 on your way to the
championship. How's that pipe dream working out for ya?
That`s why you`ll never be considered the best ever....you are a a phony,and a
lot of other things we don`t need to re-mention....
Phil Jackson is a sorry excuse for a good leader. I think he smoked one too
many joints back in the day. (I'm sure I saw him inhale when Bear drove the
motorcycle by the Laker's bench last time).I'm guessing every day
when Jackson meditates his prayers he gives thanks for Jordan and Pippen, Shaq
and Kobe...He certainly doesn't have 9 rings because he's a good coach! Heck, I
could have 9 rings if you had me coach teams with the superstars he's had.He's the most classless coach in the league.
Give me a stinckin break! Kobe plays to the camera and wants the world to see
that when he doesn't win, it's because he has a hangnail or something!Phil
Jackson has no class either. When the Lakers lose and everybody's healthy, he
wants the ball to go to the star to finish off the opponent. When the star's
hurt, he doesn't want his playere to pass to Kobe. You lost, Coach, you lost.
Take it like a man! And that comment about the foul on Price not being a
flagrant 2 is idiotic! The whistle blew, Coach! The "hard foul" came AFTER the
play was dead!
Only in Hollywood can you find a guy who can't get off the court without
assistance one minute but can catch a 3/4 court pass, spin, shoot, swish, fist
pump and run to half time the next.Good acting Kobe but I'm not
I respect Kobe as the best player in the game today but I get frustrated as heck
when I see him get calls for finger touches and good defensive plays. I agree
with the poster above who said Kobe couldn't have been as injured as he
pretended to be. I've had a bad back before and you don't just "can't move" one
minute and spin and shoot just fine the next.I'm suprized the Faker
fans aren't blaming the injury on a dirty Jazz player. He "tweaked" his back
while not even being touched by a Jazz player.And can you Fakers get
a handle on Phillip? He basically blamed Ronnie Price for getting floored by
Turiaf. He said Price initiated the contact and that it was a bad call. I
don't think Turiaf intended harm, but he certainly hammered Price.And speaking of "Priceless" how about Baby Bill Walton getting stuffed like a
Thanksgiving Turkey by the smallest player on the court?!Props to
Derek Fisher for gutsy play. I'm glad he didn't totally rip our hearts out. I
wish he was playing for the Knicks, not the Fakers. He's way too classy for LA.
Who cares what you think?!
Spazzfans and RE:GoodguyGary,Through three games of the SeriesLakers Free throws 126Jazz Free Throws 74And you say
that the Lakers don't complain about the ref's.. Why should they?
Zakiy-Are you on Kobe's level? Are you on the Lakers? I bet if Kobe was
traded you'd be one of those laker fans that all of a sudden love the Bulls. By
the way you'd never hear Dwill complain and make excuses. And their hall of fame
coach blaming the refs.. classy. Lets go jazz get one in LA
Personally, I am grateful and thankful not to be at K Bryant's level. He has
outstanding athletic skills. I get concerned for many who look to him as a role
model. Such personal duplicity.BTW Zakiy, I get concerned for those
who have to write and label others as idiots and haters and feel a need to tell
others "shut up"
Would be embarrassed if they saw some of the comments Jazz fans have written on
here. The players respect each other on either team, it's the fans that have no
class. Just a week ago you guys were ready to ship Boozer and Sloan out of town.
Jazz players know how two faced you guys can be.
Hate Kobe all you want but give him his respect. The Lakers lost and Kobe was
hurt. They didnt lose because he was hurt, but simply because Utah was the
better team yesterday. None of you all haters let alone a single person in the
entire state of Utah are even on Kobes level. It's the best of seven for a
reason idiots.Utah didn't make it this far because they were the worst team, but
because they were they fourth best in the West. Oh yeah... Who was number One in
the West. Exactly. Shut up.
The Jazz are the King of excuse makers. Come talk when you can actually win a
road game when it counts. Just like Stockton to Malone - ZERO titles.
Jimmy thinks Kobe is faking too. However, Jimmy thinks the reason Kobe is
faking is so he garners more sympathy from the refs, by trying to show them that
the Jazz foul him too hard and so much that he is injured. Jimmy
doesn't buy it, but it might work on some of the refs, let's see if they put him
to the line another 20 times on Wednesday.
like that? I figured the you guys had Fakers all wrapped up so we needed one.
How about Spazz fans? Amazing- "Everytime when Lakers lost to Jazz, they
will find excuse to explain why they lost"The last week has been the
Spazz fans making excuses about why they lost Games 1 and 2-and blaming the
refs.At least we can admit that the Lakers lost legitimately.GM3-the bench didn't perform and the team had too many TO. Period. There
wasn't a conspiracy or anything like htat.GM4-Lakers didn't hit
their FT, Turiaff 2nd Center was ejected in the 1st half so they had to play
their 3rd string center and Kobe had to take jump shots cause his back was
tweaked. These aren't excuses-these are straight up legitimate
reasons why my team lost. I'm not blaming the refs like the Jazz fans did after
the first 2 games.Try accepting a loss with dignity. I still call
Lakers in 6.
Everytime when Lakers lost to Jazz, they will find execuse to explain why they
lost the game, but not giving Jazz credit how Jazz won the game. Cheap cheap
cheap. I didn't watch the game but the block by AK in OT was nice and clean.
It was amazing to see how well Kobe healed when the ball went in and how bad he
hurt after a turnover. Case in point. The last shot of the first half could not
be taken like that by someone who has to helped off from the floor 2 minutes
earlier. This guy was trying to get you media buffs to remember the gutsy
performance that didn't happen. Phil Jackson fell for it. Calling out his team
for not helping poor Kobe. What an idiot. Fisher bailed Kobe and his antics out
the best he could.
Sounds like Kobe is the first player to ever play with an injury. I am sure
glad that Boozers back is not bothering him, and that D-Will is completely
Why does he?Anyone???
Wow what language was that written in?
Poser Faker what else I can say about Kobe. He wasn't MVP 2day. One thing he
needs to do go acting school, Where is Hollywoood?
