More immature team - Kings or Lakers?
 
Kings have youngest roster while Lakers have one of the oldest.

Why are the Lakers so much more immature?

Why can't Kobe make the ultimate sacrifice in order to win the team game?

Kobe is selfish. Always has, Always will be.

Kings and it isn't even close

At the very least, one can say the Lakers are old, injured and out of their primes.


Wtf is keeping the Kings down? They're young AND talented.

Only the fact Tyreke has missed 13 + games, Cousins missed 5+, Thornton missed 5+ and the fact our bench consists of talent such as Garcia, Outlaw, Jimmer and our signings such as chuck Hayes, James Johnson, Salmons and Brooks while all have played well are very average in the long run and probably as bad a bench as the Lakers.

If anything the Kings 13-21 > the Lakers 15-18 when you look at the talent difference.

As andremiller stated, injuries have hurt. But even w/o injuries, the Kings' have had an inconsistent rotation and some players just don't compliment each other well. As usual, the biggest issue are Tyreke and Cousins. Cousins seems to have "figured it out", but Tyreke needs be unselfish and never shoot a J. Then the Kings could actually make some real noise.

Also, Smart sticking to a rotation would help. Which he has recently, but mostly b/c he's forced to due to injuries.

As for actual "immaturity", it's the Kings, in terms of on the court maturity. You can tell they're still pretty green in some games. In terms of player personalities, it's pretty close... I mean, Dwight's lack of dedication or Cousin's sense of entitlement? Kobe's stubbornness or Tyreke's low IQ? Both teams have their fair share of immature features.

Kobe and self-sacrifice don't go together well. sacrifice others, yes.
