Re: Lakers are toast
Because he doesn't have anyone else to play with.
Lamar Odom, Smush Parker, Luke Walton, that's his team.
Look at that roster. Ugh. They're as bad as they should be,
and a little worse right now.
He needs a 2nd star on the team.
He'll always be the #1 guy, the ball hog, yes.
They went after Jason Kidd slightly. Tracy McGrady, slightly.
Ron Artest, not at all. Hey, get a 2nd star in there.
But, right now, and all season, Kobe's had no other
choice. Either he shoots like crazy, or they don't
even come close. Not that the other guys try hard.
They don't. Phil's asleep on the bench, never calling
They need a veteran star, with big bucks, who comes in knowing
he is not #1 anymore. But, they could get a title run in with a 2nd
star. Much like Miami or San Antonio or even Phoenix or Dallas.
It's one star, and the big 2nd guy to assist.
Shaq alone didn't get it done.He needed a Kobe or Dwayne to get it done.
Mr. Buss, leave the Playboy Mansion party - Hef and you are too old
anyway, it's gross, leave the teenagers alone - and get a real tall
guy who can shoot, block, and defend! That's how you win a title.
Not with Smush Parker and Cook.
I think Dallas or Phoenix wins it all this year.
