I hate that ish..


Really?...the bench?....I actualy think that the lakers weak cast outside of Kobe and Pau get exposed without the Coaching of Phil Jackson.

That's what they said during his 2-year injury.

Also goes to show, that eventually Wade is going to have light the Lakers up, and then it's going to be real ugly.

Lakers have nobody who can stay in front of Wade on D, it's almost a little sad.

So basically nothing in the past matters when it comes to shutting down wade, yet the past is a fantastic example to extrapolate the results of future matchups from?

You are a moron, or hopefully, a troll. Wade cannot do shit against us, we cannot do shit against Lebron and lebron's teams. In the regular season. If you assume the teams thing will stay the same, then the wade part must as well..

I'm confident that LA is going to end up with Howard and Pau down low and that Kobe, despite being owned by Wade, is going to get the kudos while Howard and Pau devour Anthony and Dalembert and win the series for LA. I just hope that is next year and Mia gets one in first.

Wade is irrelevant. He's nothing more than a sidekick. The Lakers will have no trouble shutting him down like they did in the reg season, and like what the Sixers and Bulls did in the post-season.

It's LeBron the Lakers have to worry about.

The Lakers can't stop any of the big three, not even Bosh.

Wade can blow past any of L.A.'s defenders with relative ease, he just missed a few shots he normally makes (gimme layups) to skew his shooting percentage.

I watched those two games and no one on L.A. looked credible playing D on Wade at all. LeBron is another nightmare for them.

The Lakers shut down Wade in both matchups,and Kobe will own him as he routinely does. The Lakers will have no trouble guarding a guy who can't shoot past 15 feet. They'll shut him down just like the Bulls and Sixers did.

It's LeBron and Bosh the Lakers will have to worry about. The overrated side-kick Wade will be no problem.

It was embarrassing enough seeing the Heat beat up on the Lakers in the regular season as is, the sight of LeBron and Wade walking all over Kobe in the Finals ... would really damage his legacy I think.

Perhaps that's why the Lakers went down so easily to the Mavs.

Kobe is in the twilight of his career. Losing to the Heat wouldn't be an embarrassment.

It didn't hurt Magic losing to MJ in 1991. Kobe losing to LeBron would just be seen as the torch being passed. Kobe would still be a top 10 player.

I don't see why his legacy would be any different than it was after the Mavericks embarrassed him.
