I get it - we always wish the best. But see what happened to the Knicks fans on this thread for allowing themselves to love JR Smith. I even have my moments of weakness about Beasley
believe me, i've been through my share of them with the lakers, too. but swaggy isn't that guy. or sure doesn't seem to be. he's got a great sense of humor about himself, for one. he's a notoriously bad defender (like what laker pg hasn't been?), and when he stepped in and took a charge that effectively won a game, he told everyone afterward he was going to be defensive player of the year. compare that to howard.

Don't think so, at least not yet.

Nick Young is a seven year vet. we pretty much know what he is at this point, and his basketball decisions are worse than most rookies. that's what I meant by the crack that Kobe will kill him. Lakers fans will love him when he gets hot, but when he's not he'll screw up the offense, shoot you out of the game, and you'll have less tolerance for his always shitty defense.

I don't have any hate for him either - things would have been different if he grew up elsewhere than with the Wizards - just calling it like I see it.

You're over analyzing it too much. At the end of the day, Kobes missed shot when he is shooting 5 for 25 is still going to be more annoying than anything Nick Young does. Kobe's not going to get much into him because everyone in the team will pretty much be scared to shoot when Kobes on the floor anyways. lol8[1].gif


You also got to watch more Laker games before you can judge him. No one is expecting anything from but scoring off the bench and that is it.

JR Smith took 17 3s in 48 minutes tonight. The Knicks have got to be the biggest joke in the NBA.

I think you're being too much of a homer to see the problems. but let's let the season play out to see who's right. if "scoring off the bench" was something that existed in a vacuum, I think he'd be all right. but it's all about efficiency and maximizing the possessions you get, and that's the problem - a poor shooter can get 30 if he ball hogs but his team will find themselves down 20 against a more efficient team. I do agree with you that Kobe's offensive efficiency will be far more pivotal to the lakers than Young's, though.

in other news, the Pacers and Heat split records down home court lines. me thinks we really, really need home court advantage in the playoffs
