    If Odom can put up comparable stats to what he did today on a consistent basis, hand the Lakers the title.

    They are also missing their centre and for the life of me I cannot remember his name.

    I'll give the Lebron summary:

    1. He's a crappy shooter.
    2. He's a great scorer.
    3. He's a cherry picker.
    4. He's a hustle player.
    5. He is a great passer.


    Lebron piles up all these rebound stats, but they're almost meaningless. If you watch how he gets his stats, he's extremely unimpressive.
    90% of his points are by way of 3 things:

    Fast breaks.
    Dunks/Layups/Alley Oops.
    Free Throws.

    Close off the lanes and this guy is not a threat. Guys like Kobe, Tracy McGrady, etc can beat you in any way. Close, far, etc. They don't rely on pure athleticism to score.




    but....he is a freak of nature. Strength, speed, size, and determination go a long way.
    And he was nonexistant in their loss today vs the Lakers. He's admitted before that he wishes he had that Kobe bite. That killer instinct. Keep wishing.

    hahaha. Sorry, but being a Lakers fan since Kobe entered, I've never hated a Laker as much as I do Lamar Odom.
    He's great one game, playing the way he should always...and then he'll go on a braindead spree. Missing layups, stupid turnovers, rebounding with 1 hand and carelessly having the ball knocked away, etc.

    The guy actually walked inbounds before passing the ball once. Passed the ball to a ref quite a few times. Man...he's just frustrating. I've been on the 'Trade Lamar' bandwagon for a while, but once again he gives me this false hope, like he's going to be the player he could be. We'll see...

    I think it's more fun to watch King James than Kobe.

    James can be a power house dunker. Kobe is to lite weight.

    i was laughing my *** off when he badly missed a wide open three, got the rebound and missed another wide open three even worse than the first against the lakers.
