D12 finally earning his $$$
For the entire season before the trade deadline, I ran my mouth about how the Lakers had no choice but to trade D12, because he was gone at the end of the season, and destroying the team chemistry.
Well, allow me to be the first (probably not..) to say, D12 is doing more than just earning his $$ for the first time this season. He is carrying this team right now, and he is the reason why they looked so good today. 16\21\4blks. Despite all the attention Kobe is getting (mostly deserved), D12 also played a HUGE role in the wins over NO (20\15\4blk\3stl) and Toronto (24\13\5blk\3stl) -- if you look before that, he had some off games offensively, but he is still playing better defense and grabbing boards.
since the all star break D12 has grabbed 12 or more rebounds in every game.
Gasol is definitely coming off the bench.
This team could actually, finally, legitimately, be scary in the 1st round. I'm just happy there might be something to watch besides the Heat steamrolling to another chip.
Congrats to D12 for finally getting it.
