kobe the viewThe Los Angeles Lakers are anticipating the return of Kobe Bryant, as the five-time champion is getting closer to walking onto the court. Bryant tore his Achilles last season and his recovery process has gone better than originally expected.

    IMO, hopefully the team can go 18-12 or 17-13 in the first two months to help reach the 45+ wins needed to land a playoff spot.

    The Lakers have played one of the toughest schedules in the NBA so far… their opponents to start the season have a combined record of 82-57 (.589) — only two teams they’ve played have losing records. No Kobe, no Nash, 6-7 all good all considered.

    Kobe will be back, and some say this team should tank because they’re going no where? I beg to differ because see a bunch that’s learning how to compete without Kobe or Nash. I’m not saying they’ll win a championship but who knows? Tanking is not an option, that’s all.

      let’s drop all these nay sayers who wants to tank. All they are are LAKERS when team is winning, bandwagoneers

        Exactly. That’s what I’ve been saying all along but many get butt hurt trying to evoke the championship or bust theme 12 games into a new season? There are no FF buttons in a NBA season “Don’t tell me about tomorrow! I don’t want to hear about tomorrow! HELLLOOO, You PLAY to WIN the GAME!!” *Herm Edwards voice*

          If we don’t have enough to go for this year, for sure next will be all the way to the 17th. All the way Lakers!

    Ryan Kelly and Elias Harris both looked pretty decent playing with the Defenders last night.

    Kelly 24 pts, 9 boards, 2 assist, 1 steal and 1 blocked shot on 50% FG in 36 minutes. Harris had 18 pts, 2 reb, 2 assist and 1 blocked shot on 60% FG in 28 minutes. Both players were in foul trouble, and Harris actually fouled out. The Defenders lost but they were playing last years D-league champs.

    • Jim213

      The coach or better yet what coach? It looked more like individual play as opposed to team play for the D-Fenders. Ball rotation issues and lack of D should’ve been better addressed IMO. The Rockettes team took about 50 3 point shots for the entire game. Harris and Kelly put up good #s but Thomas(7 ft) and Turner’s hustle impressed though their game would need to improve to compete night in an out NBA wise.

      • Daryl Peek

        Thomas has that Jordan Hill like motor and can play at the next level as a reserve IMO. Again the Vipers are the more experienced unit and were champs last season. The Defenders are much like the Lakers in that it will take time for the team to get on the same page from coaching to players.

        D-league basketball is all about individual, I gotta get and showcase mine for the most part. Especially when players are temporarily assigned and or called up constantly throughout the season. Team consistency and cohesion are very rare in that league. Eric Musselman did a great job with the Defenders a couple of seasons ago. They had the most call ups of all D-league teams if memory serves me.

    Next Kobe 9s?…
