The TRUTH about Sports


steve-nash-injury1-1024x576Is it just me or does Steve Nash suck? I know he’s 40 or 400 years old but the Lakers’ signing him last year was so promising…. I never thought that he would be this big of a liability. Now, he can’t play on back end of a back to back games and is constantly injured. It’s sad to see a 2 time MVP fall like this.  And I’m not even talking about the heist job he’s pulling on the Lakers, 3 years at $27 million? So disappointing…. I’ve never seen a worse group of point guards on a team: Nash, Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar. Nash is average under 5 assists a game and under 7 points a game… are you kidding me? Can’t wait ’till the end of the season for the Lakers to clear up some cap space and some some real players and not these Div 3 scrubs…

kobe bryantAnd that’s at Staples by the way.  We all forgot about the woes of the Lakers. After finishing off the season last year with a Championship, no one particularly recalled how they got there.  Remember the losses to Indiana, Sacramento, Miami, Charlotte, Pihlly, Charlotte AGAIN? Remember how many times the Lakers lost a game that they were supposed to dominate?  Well, fast-forward to tonight against the Dallas Mavericks, a team that hasn’t beaten the Lakers in the last 6 visits. Can’t say the Lakers were looking to the next game, because that woud be against the Hawks who are supposed to be heavy underdogs. My take on this loss, it was a clinic on why basketball is a team game (see Mavericks) vs. a street game (see Lakers).  The Lakers played the entire game like they were at Rucker Park, all one-on-one.  Kobe forcing shots from the beginning, going 6-19.  Sure he scored 20 points but he missed more than %66 of his shots, rarely got his teammates involved. When he did, they couldn’t capitalize.  Ron Artest clearly isn’t comfortable YET with his new team as he shot 1-6 and was in foul trouble most of the game.  He even picked up a technical to spice things up.  Finally, the Lakers’ bench.  What to say.  Jordan Farma dribbling the ball of his leg, Jordan Farmar throwing the ball away in a key stretch in the 4th quarter. Sasha taking an off-balance 3-pointer (missing of course). I don’t ever want to see Mbenga or Luke Walton on the court…EVER.  These guys don’t belong in the NBA. I’m not saying it’s time to panic but they’re gonna need to nip this in the bud.  As for all you psychos out there that think that they’re gonna beat the Bulls all-time record, stop.  It ain’t happening.

Lakers Keep Rolling

onthebuzzer.com kobe bryantOn Tuesday night, the Lakers traveled up to Indiana and laid one on the Pacers, 134-114. While I’m not ready to crown them champs yet (or any time this season for that matter), these guys are playing with a sense of urgency.  Maybe it’s the Kobe trade rumors and they’re trying to prove to him that they’re worth it? Maybe it has to do with Kobe throwing them under the bus in the offseason?  Who cares? All I know is that guys like Andrew Bynum, who had 17 points and 10 rebounds on Tuesday or Jordan Farmar and his 18 are stepping up big. The Lakers’ bench is one of the best in the league so far. Their starters all averaged double digits against Indiana.  Let’s just hope this lasts.  The Lakers started out smoking  hot last year and then stumbled and fell on their faces in the playoffs.  The key, injuries, don’t get any to the key players.  The Lakers are OK for now (note Kwame is not a key player) but if Kobe’s knee starts buggin him, it’s gonna be a quick ride to the cellar. P.S. Don’t leave us KOBE!!!
