08:07 AM ET 05.12 | Seems Andrew Bynum's Tuesday suggestion that practices weren't intense enough this season wasn't unfounded. Kobe Bryant, for his part, acknowledged that something was missing because he mostly wasn't able to practice because of his troublesome right knee. "I think it played a part in the fact that guys felt like they could take days off because I'm not there," Bryant said. "It's like your big brother not being around." ... "Next season will be different. I have this whole offseason to get strong, and this way I can get out there and kick their [butt] in practice and they'll have no excuses."

What are we talkin' about here? We talkin' about practice. Not a game, not a game ..... but we talkin' about practice. Kobe supposed to be the franchise player and we up here talkin' about practice. Practice...... what are we talkin' about though? We talkin' about practice.


Lol. Wasn't Larry Brown the coach then? Larry Brown has to be the meanest S-O-B in the world. He's a mean **** coach. Reggie Miller said he hated him.

That's a good attitude. I've watched my Knicks celebrate prematurely for years. It's never a good idea.

Ive said all year that this years Mavs team can matchup with anyone...They have size up front in Chandler, Dirk, and Haywood...They have scoring off the bench in Terry, JJ, and Peja....They have guys that can play a little d and score in Kidd, stevenson, Brewer, and Marion....and Oh yeah they have the greatness of Brian Cardinal....lol
