as long as our D is there and we're hitting some shots then we should win this one...even if kobe does go off. our team is way too hot right now and our momentum from tonight should keep the team fired up til the laker game. as long as we dont let anyone else kill us on the lakers then it should be a breeze. keep the game the warriors vs kobe and we'll be fine.

your dream will become true on sunday, no worries. I predicted the warriors being 11-8 at this point when the record was 6-7. now I say we beat LA and the spurs to go 13-8 by tuesday

i believe

Yep... frankly, I don't care about Kobe. He'll get his stats, as he always do. The only thing we have to care about is stopping the rest of the Fakers. One player alone doen't win games (unless we're talking about Jordan or Shaq in his prime, but that's not the case).

even jordan had other pieces with him in pippen n rodman. shaq as well with penny earlier in his career, kobe later on, and then wade. only person i can think of doing it by himself is wilt...although i dont really know cuz i never got to see him play.

I was going with the closer ones in time. Wilt played in a completely different era. I don't think it can be compared to current bball.

As for Jordan and Shaq being able to win by themselves... let's say they were the ones that needed less help. We both win. Deal? :wink:

Won't be easy I don't think, especially it being in LA and the Lakers have been pretty good lately. SJackson on Kobe will be interesting, Wade did have a big game though last game. Key is to keep with Odom and not let him get off because if he does, it opens it up for players like Farmar and Walton. Biedrins is key as he could really have a big game and has to defend Bynum.

SJax won't stop 24, but he'll definitely slow him down.

Kobe needs a big game from either Bynum or Odom to put the Lakers in the game. If Kobe's help turns out to be DFish or Farmar, the Warriors will crush them.

Last season we were swept by the Lakers. The main root cause was that players like Walton and Tariaf kept getting scrappy with the boards and the Warriors kept coming up short. Hopefully the Warriors can come out on top this time around.
