Default Odom: "You want to kill and kick people when they're down."

What ...coming from Odom? I love this. this new attitude and swagger this team is carrying around.

Quote:
"I guess it's never enough," Odom said. "We have to keep pushing and keep pushing and try to play better. We didn't execute toward the end of the game or really play that well. You want to kill and kick people when they're down."


Quote:
They conclude the month with home games Tuesday against Portland and Thursday against Miami followed by a visit to Portland on Friday.

"The end all and be all for us is to win a title," Kobe Bryant said. "For us to get there, we have to take a lot of small steps. We're making good strides. The key is to keep it going. ... It's just the way we've been playing. It's starting to become one of those things where it's not just a hot streak. This is just the way we play."

Coming from Odom, I guess you can say this team is forreal.

I love the killer instinct we have. It's competetive until the end and everyone is on the same page and playing with the same intensity.

Nice to see him "feeling it." For a guy that's relatively an easy going guy, I like the fire. Nice post sizzle.

its not just playing with fire either, he's playing triangle offense basketball and cutting to the basket. He made Kobe and Pau look like Nash yesterday!

If any of you watched the second half last night (and really the last several games, but even more obvious lately) they didn't turn down their intensity even when we were up 30. They pressured the inbounds, played tough half-court D, and were extremely deliberate about their offensive possessions. They are looking like a team that wants to win every game by 50, like a victory is not enough, they wan't to humiliate the other team, so that the starters can just sit and laugh from the bench for the 4th quarter. You have got to LOVE this mentality!

I want a real team already to gauge how good we really are, San Antonio, New Orleans, Detroit, Boston, Clevland anyone in the top of theyre conference thats a finals contender. I know PHX is up there but they cant beat anyone in the playoff hunt right now, and on top of that theyre still adjusting to having Shaq down low.

Between these comments from Odom and Sasha's comments after the game yesterday I think that our boys are really feeling it right now.

It's so good to see the Lakers playing like this as well as talking like this.

The haters are coming back out now, they had been laughing at us for the past couple of seasons. Now they have to be scared again!!! I LOVE IT!!


GO LAKERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Lakers Offense is unstoppable, I have'nt seen a Laker team ever run the triangle the way they have this year. They just run it until they get a wide open look or wait until somebody dives in the lane for a dunk or lay-up. Odom is in a comfort zone and his confidence is growing game by game. Everybody on the floor knows where they need to be or where they need to go. True test is when we play the Spurs, we spread the floor so well I think the Spurs won't be able to dictate the game defensivly like they like too.

You and me both... personally, I am just glad to see him in his element and playing so well, delivering the value that he is worth to the Lakers.

Yes I agree LO is playing GREAT bball but, its funny to me how most of us want hesitate to jump off the wagon when he's not playing well.

LO is a perfect fit and making a solid statement to everybody about these lakers.
