The All Star game really revitalized Kobe, I saw his interview again after eh won the ASG MVP and he said all these young guys bouncing around got him all hyped and it looks like it is continuing to the regular season. Good to see him play, not just him but the whole team play with determination.

the thing about kobe is, the dude's 15 year veteran. most 12+ year veterans are just a shadow of themselves sitting on the bench with the position of honorary team captain because out of respect. but kobe is still in top 5 scoring in the league and a vicious killer that teams have to strategize against.

50 rebounds, 10 blocks in 3 games--all against probably playoff teams. that doesn't count misdirected shots. the boy is rocking.

my favorite laker barometer stat: assists for goals: anything over 50% is usually a win. against the hawks: 27 assists in 39 makes. Against San Antonio 26 on 42 (that's including garbage-time in the fourth); Charlotte 19 of 34 ... they're really sharing the ball and playing like a team.

Howard has a legit beef - but he could mitigate things by making more free throws.

In general, the biggest big man usually has a good beef with refs. There's generally a tendency to call fouls by impact on the big man, not by the flagrancy of the player committing the fouls. So if a smaller guy whales on the big guy, it's not a flagrant, even if the same action would be a flagrant to a guard. And it ripples down (ordinary fouls become non-calls) and builds up over the course of the season.

I love his recent performance; I just don't know if I'll want to commit long-term for big money.

I'm down on Bynum. He's done it before and the wheels came off. You all can tell me "I told you so" later if I'm wrong.

Spo is an idiot - imagine how much shit he's getting in that locker room for telling the media about the crying even if it's true you just don't give people that much ammunition

Like I said before...if there's only 2 offensively and defensively talented true centers in the game, why would you trade one if not for the other? There's only two! Not to mention in 3 finals appearances: 2 wins w/ Bynum, no wins without Bynum.
