I have watched Kobe for his whole career, so it's tough to see him go down. D'Antoni should have pulled him earlier in the game when it looked like he got hurt twice. Or rested him at some point over the last seven games. Kobe should know to rest, really. Can't play every minute of every game without risking injury.

The Lakers should amnesty him next season, if he has to sit out. Otherwise they'll be paying $30 million for nothing.

That's what happens when D'Antoni is more concerned about his career than Kobe's.

We'll trade you Bynum for him.

Lakers somehow finish with the # 7 seed

I like the lakers chances vs the spurs

My pick

I got a rematch of last years finals OKC vs Miami

With the same results

Heat too strong this year

Seems like all the higher seeds had no probs in game 1

Gasol and Howard need 65 pts and 35 boards to hang with the spurs

No. He is not speaking to Cavs. I bet he ends up in Seattle if the Kings move there to take a GM or consultant gig. The Return of Mike Brown remains the current likely outcome in Cleveland. Already sick of the speculation about how having him back affects the possibility of a LeBron return. Please, give it up already! Would be useful if Cav defense improved significantly (a Mike Brown specialty, looking at you Kyrie!), but I'd be comfortable with Part Deux only if he had a strong offensive-minded assistant on his staff. Something that didn't quite happen the first time around.

Lakers did make playoffs, so Cavs get to move up from #30 (Heat pick) to #19 (Laker pick) as part of the worthwhile Ramon Sessions trade.

I think it is ridiculous how everyone downplays the genius of Pat Riley. LeBron is going nowhere. Also Lakers are going nowhere, they are not even developing a viable replacement for Kobe. Kobe will not last forever just like everyone else. Right now, Kobe cannot accept a secondary role on the court; if he can't return and be the #1 guy, then he is through, he will come to realize the effects the injury will have on his health. and face it, the CLIPPERS ARE IN TOWN!! :-)

hey hey! Comon, don't tell me you cannot see the smile on Billy Crystal's face......:-)

Howard is 5/5

5 babies

5 babies mamas

Great role model.....

He's got a way to go to match Shawn Kemp's 12 kids from 11 mamas.

Lakers in deep doo-doo

I'd written off the Lakers for this season since before it began. Too many old defenders, not enough shooters, a weak bench, and the wrong coach twice.

The Heat will win this title running away after being mildly tested at most.

old blue eyes is back.

New York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony says he enjoys listening to Frank Sinatra during the playoffs: "I love Frank. It keeps me calm. I'm already a mellow guy but it keeps me super calm."

You know you're getting stomped when Duncan is outright laughing at Superman and the Lakers.

Ron Artest is out for what will be the Lakers final game this year, joining Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Jodie Meeks. Mercifully, this horrible torturous piece of crap season will come to an end on Sunday.

I know it's lame to blame the officials, but the Bulls have just gotten robbed in the 2OT with about 3 or 4 calls that didn't go their way, including Robinson getting mugged on the way to the basket and it being a non-shooting foul and then Noah pushed out of the way on a shot and not getting a call. Even if they somehow do win this game, I think Noah will be out of service next game. (They just went into triple overtime! And Noah fouled out, maybe out of self-preservation. :unsure: )

Oh what a Lakers novela! Howard shows zero class or intelligence in getting thrown out of the game, then Kobe comes out in crutches to a standing ovation! I don't think Superman is coming back, to which I say: Good riddance, the guy just doesn't put the time in to improve his game.

Howard will never win anything in the NBA....

Hopefully the Lakers let him go on his way

Lakers won't win anything with what they have...

I'd like to see Howard in a Rockets uni. I think he could fit in well with Harden & Lin - maybe they replace Parsons or Asik with him.

Didn't seem like he ever complemented Gasol very well, and had a difficult time exerting dominance on the floor while Kobe was out there, too. Just didn't fit the Lakers very well.
