Careful--you don't want to get the mentally ill Lakers fans all riled up.

Remember, you are only allowed to criticize white players as being poor defenders.

His defense tonight was etrocious.

There is no way in hell, he even sees a 2nd all team defense selection with the way he has played defense so far.

This has almost always been the case.. The best line is Kobe can be a good defender when he wants to be.. Which is actually true.. But he doesn't want to be most nights.. Lebron is getting the kobe treatment also.. Before Lebron was getting all defense he was playing better defense than he did last year...Yet he earned all defense by relying on rep he earned the year before... The beat goes on...

Same with LeFraud. Everyone knows LeBron is garbage on defense but the NBA wants to promote it's all black guy image and the image that white men are horrible defenders (as the stereotype of Dirk persists despite the fact he is a very good defender)

Kobe did his homework, Xavier has not been any type of offensive threat. Kobe wanted Xavier to prove he could hit the outside shot which Xavier proved.

Kobe knows OJ Mayo's game better than anyone, he played very good defense on OJ, besides the last score with 2 minutes left in the fourth where he let OJ drive right for the floater.

Unless Kobe steps it up alot he should not make an All-NBA defensive team. If he ends up making one it'll truly show there basically handing out awards to players with reputation. He's looked pretty good, but IMO the biggest thing I've noticed this year is his defense has dropped off quite abit. Hasn't even been a ball thief this year either so far.

kobes all nba defense has always been letting his player get past him and then screaming help and expecting pau or bynum to meet his man at the ring and save his ass. he hasnt deserved an all defense selection since pau got there.

It was the fact he was playing Lazy. He would sagged down like crazy on his defender. And when the player hes guarading got the ball. He didnt even bother closing out. He was just giving them uncontested jumpers.
