Default We Can Get All The Help In The World But Were Still Missing...

Quote:
Hey Guys,

Got an interesting letter this week I thought I'd share with you...

Here’s a tidbit for you. Out of the 82 regular season games LA played, our opponents scored 100 pts or higher in 49 of them. That means in terms of percentages that we gave up 100 pts or more nearly 60% of the time. 59.76 to be exact and out of that 59.76% or those 49 games that our opponents score 100 or more pts we lost 27 of them. Again looking at those 27 losses that equates to just over 55%. 55.10 to be exact in terms of percentages. Yes Kobe needs help however all the help in the world won’t help him if the team doesn’t play better defense. We know we can score…..(81pts in a game by yourself?) enough said. Can we stop the opponents from scoring is the real question. Until we began to do this we can continue to expect 1st round playoff eliminations season after season. We can also expect to lose Kobe after the next season or two if this trends keep up. Now that’s what Mitch, Phil, and Jerry Buss need to be focused on.

As SocalMike always says DEFENSE WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS, that is so true.

Just imagine if we actually played defense agianst the Suns. We could have had a great chance to win that series.

L.A. has to find players INTERESTED in playing defense. They need to depleat themselves of the players uninterested in playing hard. Cook, Brown, Bynum, Sasha, etc need to go.

And if you recall, I was a HUGE Bynum fan at the beginning of the year, but watching the kid play with no heart, no passion, no fire just rubbed me the wrong way.
