Griffin doesn't have any post moves up his sleeves and all he can do is just shoot open jumpers or dunk. Jordan on the other hand is useless. All he could do is dunk.

The Spurs always had trouble against bigger teams. Memphis last year especially ZBo and Gasol tore the Spurs apart.

OKC have excellent defenders that can actually defend down low and on the perimeter. There is no one on the Spurs that can shut Durant down.
well i agree the teams they swept were below them but in the regular season they are 2-1 with OKC. With okc you have to slow them down because their half court offense is utter garbage and spurs are able to play the game at their own pace. While i do think its gonna be a good series i just don't see okc beating them 4 times, but hey i could be wrong

Bye Lakers.

Am I the only one that notice if Kobe scores more than 30 points, they always lose? There is no reason for Kobe to shoot 30+ shots. Get the bigs involve..

I don't mind it if Kobe takes 30 shots. Just as long as it's not forced, like the previous games. Last night he played very well. The bigs were'nt making shit. Think they were 9/25 combined.

Most of the shots were forced with isolation and highly contested. This time it just doesn't look bad because he actually made them.

Bynum barely got touches on the post. Kobe took all the shots. You can't win playoff games like that.

i think we'll come out east champions this year as well, and if bosh is back by the finals then okc/spurs will have a hell of a time dealing with miami and a "ring hungry/i need to make a statement" lebron james in the finals.

It's always been like this for the Lakers though. Even when they won back to back championships, Kobe was taking all of the shots. The better team won the series. Lakers were just outplayed.

i will give you that, lebron has tasted blood and wants that ring especially since history dictates every player that won their 3rd mvp went on to win the championship.

I don't remember Kobe taking 30+ shots in NBA finals but he did make 30 points.

The Lakers offense looks like a joke. There is no reason for it to be a 2 man game. Kobe/gasol or Kobe/Bynum running pick and roll only. They have Sessions but they don't run much plays for him.

I just took a quick look at the Finals vs. the Magic, and Kobe shot 30+ in 2 out of 5 games. They won them both. So it's not always Kobe taking 30 shots and they lose. I'm just saying that's the way the Lakers offense goes. It's been like that for the past few years. Kobe is a volume shooter. I don't always agree with it but it worked in the past and I don't think it's going to change until Kobe retires.

Those 30+ shots stats are very misleading. Sometimes he starts off hot or cold which relates to the offense being out of sync and when they are down in double digits during the fourth he plays hero kobe ball trying to bring them back. At times this would work or it could backfire. Keep in mind he gets least 3-4 grenade shots simply cause pau didnt assert himself or just pass the ball around which results to "just give kobe the ball with 7 secs". On the contrary if you look at the lakers stats when kobe shots under 20 attempts they have a better winning rate. You can relate this with good team ball movement everyone is scoring so he dont need to play kobe ball, it goes both ways.

Anyways kobe's usage rate was a league leading 38% which is eye popping, shaq (lakers) days his all time high was 36% iirc. kobe is being over worked in this brown system, new offense, condense season or hes just trying to prove hes still an elite player at 33 with tons of mins played or maybe all of the above. Im mostly impressed by his drive! i mean most players after one ring lose that desire (dirk admitted he lost motivation). Just respect and marvel kobe cause theres not goona be another.
