True.

Without Kobe? No flow, just imagine the offense
Lakers probably get blown out of the building, not to mention Dwight can't even hit his free throws - he'll be the biggest reason the Lakers lose.

He was a big liability today, almost cost them the game. I don't see how Dwight can be the player of the game. I mean, just watch the damn 4th quarter. It would've been better to bench him.

Nash is the only player that will go to war with Kobe, Dwight & Pau just don't have "IT"

Basketball is much more than just stats and this game proves it.

I cannot understand why anyone would even make the claim the claim that Dwight is better than Kobe.

It's absolutely laughable. Dwight will NEVER be better or more important for the Lakers.

Just trade Pau already, no need to wait for him to disappear in 3rd straight playoffs. Get some athleticism, bench production and defense.

Dwight playing just awful. Gasol even worse (downright pathetic for Gasol). Kobe did what he could.

Dwight has an excuse(even though he played with no effort) What's Gasols excuse, He didn't even bother looking for a shot with the bench on the floor, instead he differs to the scrubs.

Default Re: Kobe is the best player on the Lakers, not Dwight.

I def thought Dwight would be easily the best player on the team. Figured they'd build the offense around him and Kobe would take more of a backseat and average 20-23 points. That along with Dwight arguably being the best defender in the league made it a pretty easy assumption for me. Kobe's having the better year, still think it's a little early. Dwight could turn it around offensively and Kobe could slow down. As it stands right now Kobe is easily the man.

I say this as a pretty happy camper too. Rather see Kobe score 38 and lose to the Kings and Dwight have 4 shot attempts in 41 minutes than Dwight be the "best player" and the Lakers win. Lakers playing .500 ball and haven't won a road game yet, Kobe averaging like 27+ on 50%+ shooting? .. Yeah didn't see that one coming at all.

I know Dwight was shutout from the very beginning but still, as the best center in the league, you'd think he would try to do more SOMEWAY SOMEHOW. Gasol can suck a fat one, he was just embarrassing.
