Kobe and Lakers win again…

The L A Lakers won another one today, defeating the 76ers in Philly, 111 – 98.  Kobe scored 34, Metta World Peace added 19 points and a career high 16 rebounds, and Dwight Howard scored 17 points with 11 rebounds.  Could they possibly be figuring things out?  Steve Nash is hopeful of returning this week, and it would be great to get Pau Gasol back as well.  Steve Blake will be out a bit longer recovering from abdominal surgery.

Former Laker, Andrew Bynum watched from the bench.  The now 76er is still recovering from knee problems (what else is new?)  He made some interesting comments about his time in LA, saying at first it helped him, then later that it hindered his development playing with Kobe, not getting enough touches.  Really?  Was that the problem?  I kind of thought it might have something to do with tremendous talent but a lack of maturity and a bit of an attitude problem.

Oh well, Lakers win again so let see if they they have turned a corner??
