We all know what happens when Kobe doesn't breeze to victory. We all know what happenned in game 7 against the Suns when the suns came out and hit some threes, played some D and built a decent halftime lead.
We all saw what Kobe did when Kobe felt his lakers were overmatched by the pistons in game 5.
We all saw what Kobe did last year when the Celtics came out and played great in the first half of game 6 of the finals last year.
On the flip side of that coin, we saw what Paul Peirce and company did when trailing by 23 points to the lakers in the finals in LA (hint: they didn't quit like Kobe would have)
We all saw what the Rockets did when trailing the series 2-1 and losing their big guy. (hint: not what Kobe would have done)
Let's make tonight a celebration of the Quitters that the Rockets are NOT, and mostly a celebration of what a quitting bitch Kobe is.
I like players that play with heart - even on days that they just don't have "it", even when their brain knows they are probably gonna lose, even when their teammates don't "show up". It's called MOXIE - def: courage in the face of adversity. Kobe has courage in the face of good times. In adversity - he is chickenshit.
So: Chuckwagon, Crazy Pills, Shane, ABZ, Rambo, Von, Lowry, et al - let's give Kobe some adversity - so we can all WITNESS his lack of moxie once again tonight. Win or lose, I love you guys for bringing it in the face of adversity.
