NBA  > Los Angeles Lakers  > Lakers vs. Thunder

Do you know what I can't understand? After calls going against him @ Staples, more than once I see Kobe Bryant turn to the CROWD and start "working" them, as if to say it was a bad call. In game 2 I saw him do that when replay clearly showed he hit the shooter's arms and head. How does he not get a "T" for doing this? In game 4 he gets a call OVERTURNED???? When in professional sports has that ever happened? And Jackson works the officials before the series ever starts, claiming DURANT benefits from friendly officiating???? How about the rapist/prima-dona extraordinaire not even staying at courtside to support his team, leaving for the locker room with 6 minutes left to go in the game 4? What a classless act. I used to be a Lakers fan and I live in California, but the front office dumping Shaq and Jackson to keep the LA Raper is sickening. NBA ref's letting him get away with garbage that no other player could get away with is reprehensible. I just became the Thunder's biggest fan and hope they take the next two, proving that a great work ethic and team effort is always better than a conceited (supposed) superstar. Game 4 proved to me that Bryant has no heart and pays pays way too much attention to his own press clippings. The Thunder got down big early in the first three games, but played tough until the final buzzer. The Lakers got down early in game 4 and quit. Kobe didn't work, didn't drive the lane and was content to lay back, shoot three's and dish it off. The Thunder was intimidated in game one, but worked hard. The more the young Thunder runs the court, the more tired the older Lakers look. OKC is wearing the Lakers down and IMHO, the Thunder heads back to Staples confident, and it is now the Lakers who are scared. And they should be.
