If they miss the playoffs, I think it will be a "big whoop". A hillarious big whoop. Anyway, 3.5 out at the trade deadline. I could be losing $50 bucks on this.

Sorry. I thought the bump was timed to imply that their win tonight was significant, hence my reply.

Based on what I saw before the break, I'd say that they're going to miss the playoffs.

No, not particularly significant. Houston had a huge win over OKC tonight, too. Gaining ground on the Rockets might be harder than people think, myself included. At this point, it's a really tough call, in my opinion. A few weeks ago, I thought Houston would start fading soon because they struggled against Western confernce opponents earlier in the year and have a lot of games against the WC left. But they are holding on.

The timing was also due to it being the trade deadline. By tomorrow afternoon we'll know 100% what the core of the Lakers is going to be for the rest of the season.

Yes but only if they can replicate how well they worked Dwight in tonight. Steve Blake has been a big boost too.

I don't like Howard,the pursuit of Nash fucked the Raptors over BUT as one of the greats,Kobe is unappreciated. He has 5 rings,but is treated like he has just one. Playing exceptional for his age and amount of years clocked in,he deserves to be in the playoffs if this is his last season. Dr. Buss passing away too,hopefully this serves as motivation for the Purple and Yellow.

Lol he deserves to play in the playoffs? Fuck no he doesn't nor does is team if they can't earn it. Too many egos on that team, Kobe's is the biggest.

Kobe interview with Sports Illustrated. It was posted online today. Pretty much what you'd expect him to say, I guess.


Quote:
SI: Can you get this done? And is it hard that after winning five championships you're battling to make the playoffs?

Bryant: It's not a question of if we make the playoffs. We will. And when we get there, I have no fear of anyone -- Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Denver ... whoever. I have zero nervousness about that.

SI: OK, that's you, who has never been known for lack of confidence.

Bryant: But I'm not talking about just me. Us as a group. We will make the playoffs. And we will compete. And part of the reason I have that confidence is the Miami game [a 107-97 loss in Miami on Feb. 10]. We had control of the game. That was no fluke. We were playing very, very well. We were reading the defense, making the extra pass. OK, they have two great players [LeBron James and Dwayne Wade] who scored eight straight buckets and took control of the game. But we were right there. We can do it.

Houston has a pretty cushy schedule the rest of the way. GSW too. Utah worries me a bit. Hopefully they get on a roll.

I love how he completly ignored Bosh in that. to not call Bosh a great player is stupid on his part imo, one of the biggest reasons they won that championship. wouldn't have happened without him

There's been better role definition with Pau being out, and his constant pouting of coming off the bench goes out the door as well. The real piece missing is Hill, that dude had a good motor.
