At this point in the game - Rudy is deferring to Kobe 100% - free reign.
It's not a terrible thing in all instances - but it worries me long term
because Kobe gets in over his head and the rest of the team is stiffled.

I'm sure I'm repeating a lot of thoughts that have been posted,
but I haven't read it all...
That was an amazing thing Doc Rivers did in briefly benching
Pierce. Tactically it was perfect. He made his point; put him
back in; Pierce hit an open three right away off a great assist
Not many coaches would have the guts or sense to pull a star
for not running. Eric, has Rudy T taken Kobe out for not playing
the team concept?
The move was great, and it will lead to more running from
everyone. Doc didn't humiliate Pierce; he didn't make it
personal; he just made his point. I am now officially a Doc
On a night when Jefferson finally had a bad game, Walter finally
had a good one. Usually the only thing Walter does that's good
actually hurts in the long run; and that's hitting threes. Last night
in his short stint he did good big-man things on both ends.
Another really good job from Rivers of coming up with the small
lineup where Allen is playing the minutes Walter used to get.
That's a good small lineup.
I noticed Ray, less than a week after labelling people "Mutoids"
for suggesting Pierce trades, has completely reversed direction
on the subject. Could Ray too be a tragic victim of rapid genetic
variation? Could this malady be contagious, and if so what is
the Center For Disease Control doing about it?
A simple "Gee, I guess was wrong," might make things easier
