    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.

    But choked, had to be carried by Wade and came up ringless, again.

    Kobe was in the Finals 3 years prior and came up with not one but two rings, which makes 5 total compared to the so called "kings" none.

    I wanted to throw the remote at the tv after that stupid foul call/non-travel call. Lechoke crab dribbled, hopped stepped then did the shuffle under the rim.

    He traveled twice on one play. Took four steps, stopped, then moved his pivot foot. What a joke. How the hell do you not see that?

    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.

    I want to like this, but I don't get it. I mean, I get that it's referring to his shoe/sock thing...but still.

    And what's with the logo...doesn't he already have that penis looking thing?

    Edit: Makes a little more sense now if you watch this commercial first. Kobe as hypnotizing cult leader...me like. :nodding:

    ya a little more sense than none... I don't get it. Just seems like a huge pile of marketing bs.

    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.

    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.
