For the first time in three games, Lakers Late Night presided over a loss. And if you listened on the radio or watched on the telly (with a Telly?), that most of the conversation centered around Kobe Bryant won't surprise. On a night where he went 6-of-28 from the floor and turned the ball over six times, it was fairly inevitable.
Among the big show topics:
This may not be the day Mike Brown needs to talk to Kobe about shot selection-- he's had bad games with bad choices before-- but it's officially a talking point.
Is there any reason for concern going forward? We think it's a little early to start ringing alarm bells.
In his second game of the season, Andrew Bynum was again strong (18 points, 16 boards), and Pau Gasol overcame a sluggish start to finish with 20/11.
More good signs from Steve Blake (14 points, 6-of-9 shooting).
All that, plus secret locker room footage!
