and Westbrook wasn't on the list
Westbrook is a great talent but, his lack of superior playmaking is probably what kept him off. Nobody really wants to play with a pg that's taking all your shots, except rose since he got the mvp and his team got a good record. He'd probably be on a gm's list tho.

Not everyone can have the luxury of having the best front line in basketball. Not everyone can have the help that Kobe the most helped superstar in hiistory has had..

that's your argument?!



Alright here goes Iced:

Look at the Lakers roster right now vs Knicks

We have no bench.....we have no real PG.......

I've seen the Knicks on TV this year and lets just compare

PG - Lin/Baron Davis/Bibby/Douglas vs Fisher/Blake/Morris
SG - Fields/Smith/Shrumpert vs the Shooting God/Goudeluck/Kapono
SF - Melo/Bill Walker vs Meta World Peace/Barnes/Ebanks/LUKE fu*king WALTON!
PF - Stat/Jeffries/Novak/Harrellson vs Pau/McRoberts/Troy Murphy
C - Chandler/Jerome Jordan vs Bynum

you have a talented team

who has a bench and PG

and the to 5 easiest schedule in the league and barley a 8th seed.

Lebron had a-lot of help at the All Star Game and still couldn't close out the game or win it all for his team

He needed more help

Just a question is he referring to Kobe who played with five all stars that were at least 6'9". If so name the guys who made the game while playing with Kobe who were at least 6'9".

Well you clearly aren't thatt bright.

How many games has this team played together, I will wait.

Also this is a superstar league both our stars have been hurt and missed time.

What would the lakers record be if they didnt have gasol for significant amount of time or if Bynum came into camp outta shape due to knee problems and till this day wasnt playing up to his level and clearly looked hurt.

So you're entire arguement is valid for a number of reasons.

1. Being deeper does not equal being better. You have the most length and the best front line in basketball. If kobe passed the ball youd have a better record.

2. Lakers are much stronger defensively than the Knicks.

3. If you are just rattling off names than the knicks have more talent than the heat. Are you saying the knicks r better than the heat because they are deeper.

4. Best front line in basketball plus a good scorer in Kobe should have the lakers as one of the elite teams. Why arent they? Because Kobes selfish.

5. Dont give me the you dont have a pg, neither do the heat.
1) The Mavs were deep last year and look what happened, they won it all. Its not Kobes fault that he passes and no one knows how to score even on a wide open attempt.

2) Of course we are...were the 5th best defensive team in the league but struggle when it comes to finding offense.

3) The Heat are defensively miles ahead of the Knicks...and you can make a counter arguement of are they deeper then them as well.

4) How is Kobe selfish when he gives the ball to an open Meta who usually bricks the 3pt shot/ same with Fish...you got Pau at the 3pt line when he should be in the post.... got Bynum getting turnovers once double teamed..Murphy bricking...and all these are example from Kobe just passing the ball and not being selfish...watch more Laker games.

5) The Heat don't need a PG as much because they have Bron running the point and setting people up and setting the pace and tempo of the game for them...but they need a PG right?

you don't need a PG to win it all.

Lakers are proof of that.

How much fu*king time and chemistry do Melo & Stat need to develop?! Its been a fu*king year since they've played together with Fields

Acting like the Lakers outside of 5 players isn't a brand new Roster.

Oh my question was aimed at the fact he said "played with" then you dropped six for LeBron then he asked "were they all stars while playing with LeBron"? I'm just trying to get clarification so I know how big of a dummy I'm dealing with is all.
