New Orleans was just flat out beter than Dallas they had a better team a better record and outside of Dirk NOBODY showed up game to game. Even bringing that up is a horrible argument. Kobe got choke slammed by Raja Bell and didn't do anything except damn near not score in Game 7 and pull off yet another one of his historical level playoff collapses.

I will say this though, there is no excuse or argument about what happened versus Golden State.
And you know why the Lakers were picked by most? They believed that Kobe Bryant, himself, was >>>> the difference in overall talent levels between the two teams, which was proved incorrect.

In regards to the Lakers Suns series of a few years back, Kobe was showing some immaturity IMO. It seemed like he wanted to prove that his teammates couldn't do anything without him so he had reason to be selfish. He had a bad attitude, but has grown up a lot since then. And even though they were beaten in 6 in the finals, i'd still take Kobe on my team over Dirk, and I think any sane person would.

no way in hell playing out West.

think of it this way, Kidd, Carter and Jefferson couldn't ever do anything in the East and thats a better core than an older Kidd, Terry and Josh Howard.

Josh Howard doesn't score in the second half of games.(I repeated myself for emphasis.)

Josh Howard is a third option talent level player that has nice stats because he gets to shoot a lot and has played on a team with a lot of talent. Everytime he sees anything resembling a double team its a wrap.

You couple this with his antics off court and dude needs to be gone period.

Other than you just trying to banish Josh Howard, I fully agree this post.

Some people are really underrating Dirk here and overrating Josh Howard. Not saying Josh sucks and all, but he almost completely disappears in the 2nd half of games. I would love him as the 3rd option but him being a legit 2nd option like some have said is a joke. I question if some people have watched the game and not just the boxscore.

Truth be told, if this year we get eliminated in the 1st round again, and as much as I hate to admit it, we might have to trade Dirk for the future. If it were up to me though, I'd rather he stay with the Mavs and retire as one.

And that was the reason for the Kidd trade, to bring in veteran leadership to run the team even though it didnt work out so well.
