Seriously, what was he thinking. Maybe he's a believer of the old-school definition of that symbol.
Kobe was asked who would win if it was him vs Lebron, 1 on 1:







So keep it strictly on the scenario of if it were just those 2 on a court, 1 on 1. What say you?

Kobe because he's pretty strong and quick at the same time, and his J/handling are both way better than Bron's. So he'd play off on LeBron unless LeBron posted him up, but Kobe's so competitive and fundamentally sound I don't see LeBron scoring too much posting him up because Bron's post game isn't that developed. The on offense LeBron would guard his J up close and Kobe would have a step on him. Not a fan of Kobe or anything he's just a lot more skilled at the moment and a more competitive guy.
Anyone have any thoughts on the pending lockout for the nba.

Here are my thoughts on one thing.

in the new cba would it be better to move the draft till after FA begins, and say for teams with RFA's, maybe they should make it so if you lose a player you get a pick or a player in return.

Whats your guys thoughts on this idea?
Boozer Breaks Right Hand

Chicago Bulls forward Carlos Boozer sustained a fracture of his right hand (5th metacarpal) on October 2, 2010. He was evaluated by team physician Dr. Brian Cole and hand specialist Dr. Marc Cohen of Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush.

The fracture will require surgery and Carlos will likely be out 8 weeks.

I think LeBron would win. He's too big for Kobe.
good article on NBA CBA and potential Lockout.

http://www.nba.com/2010/news/features/art_garcia/10/03/cba.update/index.html?ls=iref:nbahpt1

this is getting out of hand, my rockets have said no to an extension for Aaron Brooks, which makes me think we might deal him in a potential Carmelo Anthony deal, now that Noah has an extension, that may take CHI out of the equation.

So, and with Lowry getting a 25M deal or whatever it was, it would make sense.

So, idk what we might do, it also may be that with Yao being not under contract after this yr, we might be looking to save cash for next offseason.

Or, like i said a deal for Melo.

Says the guy who roots for the Jazz, who have Kirilenko and Okur. And Al Jefferson has also missed significant time with injury in the past two years.

The difference between those guys and Boozer is that they started off as being soft but decided to tough out injuries the longer they've been there. Boozer would have a hangnail and miss 5 games. As for Jefferson he missed 6 games last year thats not significant so I dunno why you're talking about last year when 2 years ago is when he got seriously hurt and only played 50 games.

Boozer meanwhile played 51 games his 1st year, 33 in year 2, 74 in year 3, 81 in year 4, 37 in year 5, and 78 last year. I think I have all the right in the world to criticize the 2nd best player on our team the last 6 years for being soft and injury prone.

Oh and I find it funny that you mention how injury prone Okur is when the fewest games he's played in a season at Utah is 72.

Are you sure that you're not being bitter now that he's gone?

Sure Boozer missed some regular season games, but he was always healthy when it mattered (the playoffs), and he dominated for Utah (career 20.3/12.5 in 44 playoff games). I can't say the same for Ak-47 or Okur.

Are you trying to tell me he's not injury prone?

When he's missed 13 of the last 15 Jazz playoff games?
