Kobe Bryant had a very unusual triple double last night, 39 points 10 rebounds and 11 turnovers. I will be the first to say that all of those turnovers were not his fault with special thanks to Kwame “brick hands” Brown and Ronny Turiaf.
That being said Lamar Odom was the reason why they lost the game last night. With 8 seconds left in the game he leaves Tayshaun Prince for a wide open 3 pointer which I could have made since there was nobody within 15 feet. To make matters worse, on the Lakers out of bounds play the ball goes right to Lamar. He made a great pump fake to lose his defender and has nobody in his way to the rack but Chauncy Billups. So what does he do? He pulls up for a 20 foot shot which goes 18 feet. WHY DID HE NOT MAN UP AND TAKE IT STRONG TO THE RACK??? At the very least he gets fouled.
After the air ball you see Kobe walking off of the court Pissed off and just shaking his head.
To make matters worse the Lakers post game callers had the Lakers trading Kwame and Lamar to the Memphis Grizzlies for Stromile Swift and Paul Gasol. You have to love Laker fans trying to make a great trade for them. If the Grizzlies make that trade I think that I can run a basketball team better than the current GM.
The bottom line is the Lakers SHOULD of won that game and if not for the GUTLESS Lamar Odom they would have won.
Here's a picture of the game winner.
