Kobe Bryant blames Lakers' age

edited January 2013 in From the Cheap Seats
By Dave McMenamin | ESPNLosAngeles.com
"Cause we're old as shit," said the 34-year-old Bryant when asked why a lack of energy has been a problem for L.A. all season."What do you want? We just got to figure out how to play when we don't have that energy.


"You just saw an old damn team," Bryant continued. "I don't know how else to put it to you. We're just slow. You saw a team over there that was just younger and just had fresher legs and just played with more energy, and we were just stuck in the mud.

Metta World Peace, 33, refused to accept the age of the Lakers' roster as an excuse for their play, pointing out what the New York Knicks have accomplished so far this season.

I been telling niggas who I know is Lakers fans from the jump and niggas on here these boys just too old and slow too be running Dantoni's offense,but nobody listens.

Bryant, who has managed to lead the league in scoring this season despite being in his 17th year, said every player has to learn to create that energy individually. How Kobe when you jacking up 121 more shots than anyone else in the league you really expect niggas too give their all on defense foh.
Bitch shut your mouth before I fuck it

I'm still a rap fan, microphone fiend
An insider like Russell Crowe, behind the scenes
You can be the hottest MC, literally leave the mic smoking
No marketing and promotion
No 106 & Park, no TRL
Don't kill the messenger homey but don't expect to sell
Viacom own MTV, VH1
BET, five labels until BMG
Merged with Sony, EMI, Universal and WEA
Only four labels in the music industry bruh
All radio controlled by two companies
Just two rap magazines, read between the lines
Hip-hop used to be the expression of struggle with rhymes
Corporate monopolized, only certain shit shines
Only way to get radio and video and blow
They control what you say, and the images you show
CNN owned by AOL, own Time Warner
Trickle down effect of the New World Order
And you wonder why "Van Gogh" was killed
Same reason Dead Prez lost they deal, get real
I spit for the cabbage, grind with a mission
And put Capitol Records in missionary positions
Used to love H.E.R. like Common, but then you get signed
(Behind the Music) now I just fuck the music from behind

Magazine writers misprint you, take words out of context
And got the nerve to wonder why I'm vexed
When I read the publication
I was like "Damn, was we in the same conversation?"
This for the rap conniseurs, magazine critics
Backpackers, rap stars with bullshit gimmicks
Fans, even the "Stans," the groupies and label executives
With corporate cards trickin my budget on coochie
Video chicks sucking dick between takes
Hoping to get saved, and thanks for the ass shake
Like Dave Chappelle in "Half Baked," need a backyotomy
And some of these thugs is into sodomy
Large print giveth, fine print taketh away
Your favorite rapper ain't recoup label take it away
Have a nigga tempted to take an AK, goin postal
Rap made me loco, hustle bicoastal
(Why?) Because the West monopolize
Same ol' niggas tellin the same ol' lies
L.A. radio, quick to suck out of town dick
South support they own create international hits
Out of regional records, East coast create the buzz
Music capitol of the world, thought it wasn't when it was
And somehow manage to screw us
Call West coast gangster rap whack, then sold it back to us...

    Ok but who? I often hear that maybe if niggas got more touches they would play harder.

    Kobe had 29 shots. Dwight had 7. Ron-Ron had 17 shots.

    If THAT ain't one of the main problems, I don't know what is. Dwight needs bare minimum 12-14 shots per game.

    edited January 2013
    I wouldn't say their age is the main problem, it's just their intensity and their will to win. Certain players in the NBA give their all no matter what. Players like Chris Paul, Kobe, Tony Allen, Westbrook, Noah etc. give their all every game, but then you have goofballs and entitlement players who play around or quit playing once they don't get their calls.

    On the Lakers, the people who play their hardest every game are Kobe, Nash, Hill and Metta. The goofball is Dwight, and the player who can't play without calls or seems to simply not give a fuck sometimes is Pau. That's 2 out of their top 4 players who are inconsistent as fuck depending on what kind of day they're having.

    For clarity, Dwight always brings it on defense, it's on offense where he goofs around too much.

    P.S. My evaluation is based on watching the games, not empty stats.

    funny thing is they been having the same exact issues for the last 3/4 years and still haven't addressed them at all. Agiing team that can't defend pick n roll and can't stop any point guard. Same shit

    So they had this same exact problems both years they won the championship? I know you guys are the caught in the moment types, but here's a fun fact for you.... Lakers have won 2 out of the last 4 championships.

    i think so b/c the competition has stepped up and goten better than it was 3/5 years ago. Lakers just keep getting older and not infusing any youth in the line up now it's caught up to them Not really a hard concept to grasp.
