Reminds me of another Amir. Great energy guy that just does everything for his team.

Dude is not going to be given a chance to showcase his abilities. Too bad really. He would fit perfectly in our starting lineup.

Sucks... meanwhile Bayless has moved into his role of 6th man pretty well for them. Kid's been lighting it up.

Man, only a star of Kobe's caliber can get MVP chants with the game on the line...in an Lakers away game.

Give Ed some time. Talent always rises. He may not have as much opportunity right now, but he'll have a heck of an oppotunity in practice and extra energy to work on his game. Don't feel bad for Ed, he'll be ok. Could see him breaking out in a couple years when he's had time to better his body.

That was in no way an away game. They were booing Lopez at the line. Brooklyn is pathetic.

15 bricked shots. 5 turnovers. And some terrible defense. On a below .500 team. But they saw the light. Man is MVP.

That is a terrible graph. It makes it look like he was 2-3 times better any given year, when he was usually just a few percentage points better. Still impressive. Especially at their peaks. But how do you start the x-axis values at 15 percent?

Not sure why they'd need Rudy Gay when Bayless is throwing in 29 pts for them off the bench.... Prince was decent too.

Conley and Gasol just didn't show up.

Ugh. How good would Bayless look right now coming off the bench instead of JLII/Ross?

Really, the booing of their own team was more bothersome. Maybe there are a bunch of displaced Angelinos in Brooklyn, but I doubt it. It just seems wrong. Kobe nation needs to stay home and play their video games.

well that's the y-axis. also, the values on an axis don't have to start at zero, particularly if none of the data points are below a certain point i.e. 15%. in this case the fact it starts at 15% doesn't throw the graph out of proportion at all.

Samuel Dalembert has 27 pts and 6 rebs in 14 min so far (still in the 3rd Q) lol....

Wow.

Boylan might have to free him after this game.

But it does make it look like Rodman was 2-3 times better. I think Wilt and Russell would disagree.

Hell - I just got started. Brooklyn? Move the team to Frisco. They do not deserve a professional team in Brooklyn. An embarrassment to sports fans everywhere.
