Neither have they.
At least we met the challenge of this mighty titan of a team.
The Celtics were obviously whimpering in their boots since they didn't take up this challenge.
So? They beat us more convincingly than we beat them.
I can't believe you actually think I think the Celtics suck. Wow.
It comes down to the Lakers not being in shape and rusty. Most of the FC Barcelona players played in the FIBA tournament and where in better game shape. The only Laker who looked up to speed was Odom (who also played for Team USA.) The Lakers missed every single 3 point attempt in this exhibition game.
I was really impressed with the fans. They were completely tuned into the game. Nice to see that sea of yellow Laker jerseys out there too.
Side note, Ricky Rubio didn't look like a top level draft pick to me. I think he'd get killed by the 3rd tier guards in the NBA at this point in his development.
Kobe Bryant looked awful in the game. He didn't have any rhythm or fluid motion when he was shooting or driving to the basket. You can see some signs of the "Championship hangover" from the first couple of pre-season games. I'm not overly concerned I just want the key guys to be healthy and clicking for another title run.
you're supposed to say the Lakers didn't care and then remind me who won the championship.
I didn't get the memo.
thrilla succeedes in getting into opponents heads, like a real celtic
Kobe is shooting 14% in the preseason
Yeah he has looked lik shit. But he just came off knee surgery, it will take him about a month or so before he gets back to being the Black Mamba. Last time he had knee surgery in 06 it took himabout 15 games to get back in shape.
It's a good sign.
Thrilla should be a mod of this forum.
Nah, in order to be made a mod these days, you need less than 20 posts
