The X-Factors

I left a comment recently about the Perk/KG and Odom/Gasol match-ups. I hope you don't mind if I drop another comment?! I just respect your opinion, and wanted to share. To me, the most compelling aspect of this series now is how Kobe will react to the loss. It will be interesting to see if he tries to “take it upon himself” to get the W. Of course, he can catch fire, and beat teams by himself; but, he is going up against the one of the best defenses he has ever seen - whether he knows it or not, or whether he wants to accept it or not! So, him trying to go “Jordan” on the Celtics could play right into their hands. I just can't see one man beating the C's defense, especially when they are focused on stopping HIM. I am also LOVING the articles about how Ray is doing a such a great job on him defensively, because you just know they have to be eating Kobe up inside. Did you see the press conference? Mamba was pissed! He said repeatedly..."easy shots", "good looks", "bunnies". I don’t know. Lots of fluff about him maturing, trusting his teammates, etc. We’ll see. Can we trust that Kobe is telling the truth about his maturation? Or, will he revert back to his old ways?

Hey, Just saw your comment today (6/10.

I particularly agree with your point here
