Default Lamar Odom 05-06 playoffs

20/12/5 52% FG, 1 blk (gms 1-6)

but I thought Kobe had no help and the Suns were a FAR superior team?

Lamar's numbers through 4 games with LA up 3-1:

21/12/4 51% 2 blk, 1stl

Kobe's through 4:

23/6/6 44%

Dont get it misconstrued, Kobe wasnt horrible, but he was far from dominant and had plenty help in this series, and the Suns were massively overrated and HORRIBLE on D.

Lakers lost this series in Gm 1 because Kobe didnt show up and they were still ONE rebound away from advancing on the overrated 06 Suns.

Gm 1:

Kobe: 7/21, 22/6/5
Odom: 8/15, 21/14
Luke Walton 9/16, 19/6
Kwame Brown: 5/12, 14 points

Cavs would have won at least one if not two games in the 07 Finals with 06 Odom.

I've seen you defend AI's 01 cast when people said he dragged bums to the Finals based on that teams defense and rebounding, that's all I've ever said about the 07 Cavs.

Yes, they were bad but not nearly as bad as made out to be.
Lebron was a one man show on offense, but he had the defense and rebounding.

Kobe had more than adequate help on O (7th ranked O), good rebounding (7th ranked in TRB), mediocre defensive help.

07 Cavs had the 18th ranked defense, you swap Odom for Larry Hughes and I guarantee you the Cavs and Lakers flip flop on Ortg.

Lamar was BIGTIME in 06, BIGTIME.
shoot from 05-06 to 07-08 he was Pippen/Webber lite

I agree, which is why I say Kobe's 06 stats was a lot of fluff...especially in the run n gun West. What happened in that series bears that out, Kobe had help on O and couldnt dominate the Suns with Diaw playing centre (no Amare)

Once Amare returned next playoffs, Lakers got DRAGGED.

but even in that series Lamar played well, that series should have went 7 too, even with STAT beasting.

Gm 5 down 3-1, Lamar goes for 33/10 62%
Kobe goes for 34 points on 33 shots with 6 TO

The level most if you guys put Kobe is just not supported by his performances over the years.
