Default Post-game discussion: Hornets upset Lakers in Game 1, April 17

1) Pau Gasol is absolutely the most overrated player in the game over the course of the last two years. He plays no defense, shoots 16 ft jumpers all day, and way his shots is not falling he's basically a complete non factor for the team. He's soft, a punk, scared to go inside, can't get crucial rebounds, never played a lick of defense in his life. Get's taken out of the game by a FCKING PAPER cut. He's a product of Kobe Bryant and is not a better PF than guys like Amare.

2) Chris Paul, what can you say? the kid is special.... he brings a whole new dimension to the game of ... flopping

3) homecourt advantage doesn't mean anything for the lakers. Hornets shoot 20 free throws in the 4th quarter. lakers shoots 4

and Chris Paul has the audacity to say they don't call fouls in the playoffs in the post game interview

Default Game 2 NO vs LA

After our atrocious game 1, gotta give the hornets credit, chris paul was on fire, bench was great, etc.

I expect LA to blowout NO in game 2

I hope Aaron Gray will play. It will be funnier for everyone.

Chris Paul was huge, but looking at the bigger picture, NOLA's PG play as a whole was huge. 48, 19, 11, 4 steals and only 2 turnovers is ridiculous. In addition to that only 3 turnovers as a team. Insane.

Kobe missed his last 6 shots of the game. Imagine what the reaction would be if Lebron did that, but Laker fans are blaming it on Pau.

Hornets played a near flawless game aside from their 10 missed free throws. 24 assists to 3 turnovers, Paul/Jack ripping Fisher to shreds, their bench playing spectacularly (Gray/Jack/Smith/Green were 16/23 combined) Aaron Gray was +25 and Jack was +16. Sucks to see Gray go down, hopefully he's OK.

Now, Pau f'd up today with his 2/9, but he played NO very well in the regular season. Suffice to say he won't (or shouldn't) play as badly as he did today. Artest outrebounded both Bynum and Gasol, which I found funny. Kind of a shitty loss, but oh well.

Kobe carried the team today. No one else was a factor. has a Lebron James team ever been down in free throw disparity in the 4th quarter EVER?

Default Hornets rewarded 20 freethrows in the 4th quarter, Lakers 4!

Great win for the refs.

The NBA team and the Lakers. The refs got confused.
