NBA Playoffs, Lakers Suns Game 1: Kobe don't need no stinkin' practice

May 18, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

No practice for a week. Fluid drained from your knee. So what? These little inconveniences did not slow Kobe Bryant in Game 1 against the Suns. He dropped 40 and was a key reason the Lakers won big to take a 1-0 series lead.

The Suns will make adjustments, although there may not be many they can make on Kobe.

    As close to MJ as we’re going to see…maybe his equal as a player! Not just the physical gifts and the b-ball skills…the heart, the tenacity, the determination, the “killer instinct” are all there. I don’t really like Kobe as a person, but the man can play hoops no doubt and he HATES TO LOSE. Unfortunately that’s the part that’s missing in LeBron.

    SFWA, I am just curious, you stated you don’t like Kobe as a person. How did you come to that conclusion? Do you know him personally or ever hang out with him? Or did you develop this conclusion strictly based on what the writers write about him? Not a personal attack on you, I hear a lot of people say how they don’t like X Yand Z as a person and these opinions are not base don personal experiences, but based on what we read. Not to mention what we read are from people who do not know him personally as well. So just curious. Thanks.

    Suns are done. Look at Kobe in that pic, he is BORED lol.
    4-0, 4-1, 4-2, it doesn’t matter, this series is over already. Suns beat Lakers four times in maybe three years, not two weeks.
