First off, if anyone ever made a thread about if NBA players go to the bathroom during games is completely relevant. Haven't you ever wondered that? And if it was posted during the NBA season, and we played a game that night the thread would get a lot of traffic and you'd probably get a lot of replies. I think we all assume they go at halftime, but a part of me wonders if they sneak off the bench to go.
When I played we just told the coach we had to hit the bathroom real fast and hustled out there and got back quick.
As for the Lakers, I will agree that they seem to keep popping up when they shouldn't. It all started with that Blake for Dwight talk, then Kobe says he wants to contend for 2 more years. I think Kobe was getting all bunched up and wanted to swing some attention to the Lakers.
I really hope the Lakers miss the playoffs next year and the year after and Kobe has to retire without even getting a shot in the playoffs. Shaq and Big Shot Bob won you those rings before you had to get help from Gasol, Bynum and Odom to win without him.
Kobe to me could never win a championship on his own or as the main guy on the team. Just like Lebron. Odom probably should have made the All Star team one of those championship years, Gasol is a multi time All Star and Bynum when healthy is a monster.
Triangle offense only works with Mike.
