    Why do people do this? The lakers beat Milwaukee, Milwaukee beat Golden State, it means nothing. Every game isn't a sign of something. Just because average team a. beat great team b. doesn't mean they should beat average team c. Every game is different

    Kobe locked down Will Barton last night. Sad when a 38 year old does a better job defensively on a complete scrub than James harden.

    Now we need to teach people how transitive property of equality actually works in real life.

    I feel, ya. Just because we'd be 20-9 had we beaten DEN and the Nets doesn't mean we still can't turn the corner soon.

    Hope that helps.

    Here in lies the problem. Forget about the calculator and use an abacus.

    Interesting that a poster with the name "TheRealist137" posts so much stuff that has no basis in reality.

    - Will Barton is no scrub. He's currently averaging 15.7 pts/game while only playing 28.9 min/game. He's also shooting 46% FG% and 40% 3FG% and a TS% of 57%. If he were on our team he'd be our 2nd best offensive player.

    -Kobe didn't lock down Barton last night. Barton scored 25 pts on 10/21 shooting, had 8 rebounds and 2 assists. Additionally, Kobe didn't guard Barton last night.

    - Barton had 2 good games vs the Rockets but he wasn't being defended by Harden. He had a 26 pt game and was guarded by Harden on 2 of his baskets. His last game was 23 pts and he wasn't guarded by Harden for any of his baskets. In fact, if you watch the video, for the majority of Barton's baskets in those two games, Harden wasn't even on the floor.

    I get it, you don't like Harden. But if you're going to make up complaints about Harden at least make them believable. You obviously have an internet connection so don't be so lazy that you won't even do a little research ahead of time to prevent yourself from looking foolish.

    The key to being a troll is to mix your false statements in with factual items. That tends to make them more believable. When every single thing in your statement is obviously incorrect then you go from troll to laughable.

    My high school team almost beak Elsik when Rashard Lewis played for them. Its basketball dudes. Anyone can beat anyone on any given night. It isn't an exact science or else the game wouldn't be that fun and dramatic.

    Sorry, but you need to watch the games before spewing a bunch of nonsense.

    http://espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=400828309

    If you knew your stuff, you'd know that Kobe locked down Barton completely in the 2nd half of the game. You could NOT have been more wrong in your post.
