A Lakers Blog. Thoughts, reflections, and the odd rant on the Los Angeles Lakers and the NBA (even the Clippers).

Yes, Kobe does this all the time. At the very least it is an offensive foul. And if this "flailing arm" action catches somebody directly in the face and causes them to get stitches, then yes, they should be suspended.

Jamil, thanks for the link. I posted something about this at NBA Fan house. If you compare the two videos, you realize that he was trying to draw a foul. http://nba.aolsportsblog.com/2007/01/31/what-kobe-was-really-trying-to-do

Chris, if you go to nba.com and you are registered you can email the league office. Lakersground folks are all over that. And I was surprised and disappointed that Pop changed his mind about the play. If the NBA wants to send a message not to flail your arms after a shot in hopes of drawing a foul, a fine would have been sufficient. Think Kobe might take it out on the Celtics tonight?

I know this is kinda late but i kust remembered back in the 03-04 season kobe did the same thing with his arm against the jazz on a last second three at the end of the game but he got the call that time. Does anyone else remember this?

The higlight of the night at the Garden was the standing ovation we gave to Kareem. BTW, LA clearly has "cooler" stars than NYC. They showed Jon Stewart and Eve on the Jumbotron, as compared to Denzel, Jack, etc...not even close! BTW, bunch of Knicks fans were severly disappointed to find out Kobe wasn't there. There were a ton of boos when it was annouced. That being said, they were still hyped about beating the Lakers. But I told a bunch of Knicks fans, "you barely beat the Lakers' 'B' team..." Anyway, from my vantage point, it really looked like Smush just gave up in the 2nd half. His body language looked horrible and he just sultered and slumped his way to the bench in the 2nd half period. But it was a good fight nevertheless...

Kurt, is there an email address, (kind of like writing your congressman) for the NBA league offices? we should start a petition to the league asking them to "BACK OFF!" and let the teams play. I'd be only to happy to fire off an email saying just that. everybody should do this, bury them, crash their server with complaints! this is such BS.

I was at the game tonight, and man, there were a LOT of Lakers fans in the Garden. From my vantage point, it just looked like Smush gave up in the 3rd and 4th quarter, he just looked like he didn't care. To all the crazy and "loyal" Knick fans who were boasting about beating the Lakers, I basically told them that the Lakers "B" squad almost beat the Knicks' team. I also told them that we'd see them in the playoffs...except, don't know if one team will be there.
