It's not an excuse because plenty of athletes stay out of that shit on the winning and losing end but there are a lot of immature athletes who either never went to college, went for a year and were always babied and are still the level of a 16 year old.
I do agree with this. 24 was also one of the greatest trash talkers of all time.

i know what you mean. I don't wanna watch this gruesome sh** on my TV. It's like when Chris Paul twisted his ankle, ESPN feels the need to do a frame by frame replay of what happened like it was the most interesting thing since sliced bread.

Sort of sad to see the ZenMaster's team shit on themselves like that.

Especially when Bynum has a history of doing this sort of thing. Two years ago, he put Gerald Wallace in the hospital with a broken rib and a collapsed lung. He clearly didn't learn from that experience, and in March, the league suspended him for taking out Michael Beasley ( a move that Kobe Bryant said he was "proud of.") Today, he goes after Barrea. At least Ron Artest had the sense to turn himself around, clean up his act & resist the urge to take out his anger by sucker-punching the smallest guy on the floor. Oh wait a minute...

The lakers are gonna be okay though obviously need to figure out the pau/bynum/odom structure as it probably is tough to keep financially, find a fisher replacement and rework their bench. Though who knows what the NBA will be like depending on the new CBA


bahahaha. I love Phil's answer to the final game question.

"I'm not going to answer that question"
"As far as i know at the moment this is probably my last game"

Giving the media some more to play with for the offseason. I'm sure ESPN will get a lot of good articles out of rumors of Phil going to the Heat (assuming the heat don't win the title this season) or something like that. If the NBA locks out half a season again, maybe he'd be more likely to comeback if he only had to coach half a season somewhere

I do like Phil's interviews though. Nice to listen to unlike most postgame athlete/coach interviews.

"first of all you don't smoke peyote"

putting a fellow professional at that kind of risk, not only injuring him but also possibly ending his career is a fucking thoughtless move. what a degenerate asshole.

ok, talking to ms. foodguy this morning: the real problem for laker fans is who do we cheer for now? no way miami, boston. probably not atlanta. possibly chicago? from the west ... i could see okc or memphis ... dallas? at least it would be better to have been swept by the champs. otoh, dallas has got what, a week before they play again? if they shoot 15% from the 3-point line next series i'm going to be seriously pissed off.

As a Laker fan, I'll just sit back and enjoy the rest of the post-season. To me, it would be most interesting if OKC or Memphis wins it all, that would be awesome. Chicago, Rose is just too damn good but he seems alone in that team. If he isn't scoring like AI and distributing the ball and facilitating like CP3 they aren't winning. He can only do so much w/o help and if he keep re-injuring that ankle, that team will be in serious trouble. I don't want Miami or Boston to win but Miami is definitely getting to the finals, sadly.

What the hell is Kobe doing in the 1st team? As most know I'm a huge Kobe fan and all but dude shouldn't really be in the 1st team anymore. He can still be a lock down defender but he has lapses where he leaves the players he's defending wide open and he can't keep up with faster players anymore. I'd put Allen or Wade in the 1st team.

I agree, Kobe needs to be moved to 2nd team, Allen to first team. Iggy lost a step this season. Shouldn't be on the list at all. Fucked my team in fantasy

God, Gasol is such a girl!

"I have to learn from this," Gasol said. "I have to learn that when something happens off the court, you have to keep it off the court."

He was referring to the report that he stopped talking to Bryant during the postseason because Bryant's wife, Vanessa, had contributed to the breakup of Gasol and his longtime girlfriend. Lakers fans will remember that Karl Malone once publicly accused Vanessa of interfering with his personal life in a similar fashion.

it's an election, therefore a popularity contest. he's on there because of his reputation, certainly not for what he did this year. in fact, with his free-styling, i'd argue that he hurt the team as much as he helped them. not that he can't lock down when he decides he wants to.
