    I didn't even watch the game today. But I did see the Knicks score like 3 times the number of fastbreak points that they average every game because of LAL's lackluster hustle getting back on defense after careless turnovers

    Makes you appreciate 21 year old Kobe that much more. Majority of 20-21 year olds that come into NBA are not ready these expectations and pressure. Not on a night to night basis on the biggest stage the sport offers. Zo steps to the free throw line and legit looks nervous

    Tyson Chandler latest to call out Lakers lack of competitiveness

    After the Lakers struggles without LeBron James fell to new depths on Sunday afternoon, the calls of self-reflection came from the Lakers coaches and players.

    Luke Walton said the Lakers need to show more passion and fight given that they are so short-handed. And veteran center Tyson Chandler agreed, even going as far as to say the Lakers lack competitiveness.

    “I think we’ve just got to do a better job competing, to be quite honest,” Chandler said, according to Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group. “Possession by possession, we have to compete and I don’t think right now we’re competing hard enough with the situation that we’re in.”










    Especially when you're in this situation and you need wins like you need water.
    LAL only has a " competitive culture " when LeBron is playing? Well, shit..go ahead and name LeBron head coach if that's the case. Make it official

    I'm far from a Kobe stan, but that much is undeniable. And the era that young Kobe pulled off these feats under pressure is another notable difference. Certainly tougher than this current era. To have that sort of mind for the game and cool under pressure at 20-21, and in a tougher setting, truly special.

    Some of those old games you just marvel at..the 48pt playoff game VS the Kings in Sac..pretty sure he was 21 or 22 at the time. Smh Cutthroat out there and barely able to drink legally. Having fights with Reggie Miller, socking Samaki Walker in the eye over $100, real fisticuffs with Shaq in practice and open runs, etc. Young Kobe probably gave 1 fuck at that point/that early in his life and that was probably because of his endorsements at the time and that 1 fuck eventually expired after Eagle County, Colorado..then the league was truly in trouble. Shit, Kobe was cutthroat with his parents and their disapproval of his marriage, he didn't give a damn and cut them out his life..a wide gap from what Zo allows from Lavar. 40-50-60 point barrages after Eagle County

    Javale show to start the 2nd half
    Dunks on Drummond's head, swats him on the other end, and then a highlight dunk
    Predictable game for Kuz against his fave team growing up

    Next episode of Game of Throws.
    Lonzo volunteers to build Trumps border wall for free by using all the bricks from his missed Free Throws.
    His honorable actions compel LeBron and the rest of house Lakers to contribute their free throw bricks to help reopen the American government.
