We’ve talked about players being overrated and underrated. We’ve talked about them being douchebags. We’ve mentioned character-less players.
Ladies and gentlemen, Kobe Bryant is a man among boys. Well, Kevin Durant is a man too, but Kobe is singlehandedly keeping The Lakers in this game. In fact, the only reason this game is close is due to Kobe’s play. The Lakers have the lead, but this is going to be a close one.
Never count The Lakers completely out until they’re dead and buried. The Thunder may still win this game but they are going to have to work very hard to get it.
Two more things: Metta World War is a huge liability, and The Lakers have no point guards. If you can’t score, you can’t defend, why are you out there?
