I made a sizable bet on the Lakers-Jazz game by mistake.
I thought that the Lakers were at home and when I heard my bookie say the line was Lakers (-2) I jumped in and made a huge bet...
Then I did a little research and had to sweat a little looking at the circumstances (Lakers on a back to back with kobe coming off a 40min almost 50pt game) playing at altitude with a weirdly good Jazz team perfect at home.
I'm happy kobe's hooked up to the "juvination" machine (from a gambling standpoint), but damn he's been playing too many minutes during consecutive games too early in the season with a system that asks too much of his individual efforts on offense.
its been beaten to death that the shortened higher regular season with the back to back, and back to back to backs is going to be hell on the older stars especially if their minutes aren't being managed well.
must have been something in the air. there were really bad calls in the laker/jazz game, too. the kind where everybody in the entire arena sees it, except the 3 guys who count. and to be fair, they did go both ways.
Didn't I said signing Kwame to a 1-year $7mil contract was bad?
Dude better start save those $7mil because that might be his last big paycheck for a while.
Kwame Brown (torn pectorals) will be out at least three months.
a torn pectoralis muscle is a horrific injury. one side your upper body is basically hobbled. signing kwame is more a dumb move for him being dis-interested and a clubhouse cancer/energy sucker - but not for his potential to suffer a freak horrific injury.
