BTW last night on the Lakers/Heat game, the refs completely forgot to call travelling violations. Artest practically took 5 steps to the basket and Lebron did a ninja roll with ball in hand and stood up w/o any travelling calls.
It happened throughout the whole night too. Fucking ridiculous.
And the Lakers problem, it honestly isn't Kobe, it's the defense. Even when Kobe struggles, they manage to still score and with Nash out there, he can hit timely 3's and create. It's the defense that needs to be fixed and getting Brook Lopez will just make it worse. Look at last night, there were times that Lebron and Wade were doing lay-up drills.
As the announcers themselves said last night, the way the game was played, it looks like the Heat was suppose to be winning by 20-25 points easily. Lakers had 12 turnovers in the first quarter and they were shocked the Heat only lead by 2 points. The Lakers led in the 3rd quarter going to the fourth, their defense just collapsed once again. If they can keep the same intensity on defense the whole night and consistently instead of 5 minute spurts, this team would be much, much better.
