They beat the nuggets the other night.



Who cares, it's pre season

It was nice to see old man Kobe have that 19 point outburst in the 3rd quarter. He still looks limited (or he's taking it really easy since it's the preseason), but he's moving better and better every game.
LOL.

Jackson rarely hides his indifference, even disdain, for rookies, famously saying they were all "lower than whale … " earlier in his coaching career.

It didn't sound like he envisioned much playing time in the future for Devin Ebanks or Derrick Caracter despite Ebanks' 14-point, seven-rebound outburst Saturday against Denver.

"It's not that they're the scum of the earth, which they are, it's the simple fact that they make silly mistakes," he said of rookies in general.

"They just don't know the game yet. It really takes experience to know how to eliminate those mistakes that you may avoid when you get some credence in this league."

Ebanks had two points against Utah. Caracter did not play because of back spasms.

Ebanks and Caracter are in charge of collecting all the balls and picking up used beverage bottles after practice, typical chores for NBA rookies, but it could be worse.

"They're not solo. It's really tough if you're all alone," Jackson said. "Sun Yue was alone [in 2008-09]. He got dogged."

That's awesome. That guy's been a season ticket holder for 25 years. Talk about a dream come true for him.
Who was/ is a better defender? Jerry West or Kobe

Kobe and it's not even close.

Jerry's funny when they ask him if he was better than Kobe. He laughs and then talks about how Kobe would destroy him on the court. He says he probably wouldn't even start in today's game.

Do you have reasons? I am debating a friend. I know he is a better defender but my friend seems not to think so.
