Ruining the Lake Show

I hate Kobe Bryant. He’s on my ‘bad’ list right now. We played the Lakers recently and it’s not even what he did in game that irked me. No, it was the post-game shenanigans he was involved with that make me so mad – but more on that later.

We came into the game fresh off of our loss to the Suns in Phoenix. To say that we got off to a hot start would be an understatement.

10-0 run to start the game.

Pao finally scored their first basket with 47 second to play in the quarter after a 25-0 run by us to open the game.

The quarter ended 25-4. This was way too good to last: no one’s this much better then their opponent.

nba2k11 2011-04-11 14-38-42-66We opened the second half up just 9. I had 21 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks and a steal in the 1st half. Also, whoever had been guarding Kobe was doing a good job., because he’d been quiet so far. In the 3rd, though, he came around. We were playing sloppy, turning the ball over and just acting lazy and needed some kind of spark to wake us up.

Consider us sparked. They pulled within four in the 4th but that’s all the closer they got. I put the nail in the coffin with under a minute to play.

Kobe wasn’t impressed, but we won. I scored 37 points with 8 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 steal and 5 blocked shots on 67% shooting.

It was in the post-game news conference that Kobe got on my bad side. Rather then ask about my dominance, the reporters asked what it was like to get lit up by a player like Kobe. WTF?! I was two shots from doubling his score (37 to 21), and while 8 rebounds, 9 assists, and 5 blocks, he only had 3 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 block. I also shot 20% better then him (67% to 47%). Give me some damn credit!

I hate Kobe.
