Peak Lakers with Kobe and Shaq didn't really beat the Kings and got a gift from refs.

I thought the Spurs teams of the past 16-17 were often awesome, but GS now has even odds to break 70 wins.

But you are correct that Bruce Bowen (or is that J.B. Smoove) was a great defender.


The Spurs of old with prime Duncan, prime Ginobili, and Bruce Bowen were at their peak.

The Warriors could not match up with peak Shaq Kobe Lakers.

The 2nd year of the Lakers 3peat the Lakers lost a total of 1 game the entire post season.

I expected the Warriors to win a ton of rs games this year.

Rockets have had a disaster of a start. Clippers have struggled with the changes to their team. Grizzlies started slowly. Pelicans had a disaster of a start. These are some of the teams who when the Warriors played them were not playing well.

Don't get me wrong, what the Warriors are doing is impressive but let's see how it all plays out.

Can't win with Howard, Rockets are done

I refuse to buy into the Grizzlies anymore, they always flame out despite having all the apparent parts. Kind of remind me of old Blazers teams.....

Spurs or OKC will take out the Warriors....

I'm guessing the Sixers are playing for Ben Simmons? Maybe that and trade Embiid for point help and PF? Interesting deal on how KJ got out of Philly, good for him.....

Speaking of OKC, is Kendrick Perkins still in the league?

Yes, he plays for the Pelicans.......at least that explains their horrific start......

If you 6'11" and can walk you should be able to at least parlay it into 10 years in the league......

Kobe should be thankful Perkins is still in the league. He won't go out as the least productive player in his final year.

His shot chart after the first four games:

At least Kobe has a legit excuse. Dwight Howard is just a stiff.

The Warriors' (BTW, "Dubs" is stupid) eighth or ninth best three point shooter is better than Kobe yet he acts like it's 2006.

They just lost to the 0-18 Sixers.

Kobe may retire at mid-season at the rate the Lakers are going.

They have 2 wins.

Kobe was 9/26 in their loss last night to the previously winless 76ers.

His fg % last year was .373 while jacking up over 20 shots per game in the games he played.

He is jacking up 17.6 shots per game this year at .301 fg %.

Someone please make it stop.

Dirk, Duncan, Vince Carter all aged gracefully adjusting their games carving out new roles for themselves that helped their teams. Not Kobe and that is not a surprise.

Byron Scott is obviously not living in his fears and setting the standard, which is the standard.
