Orange County Register Lakers reporter Kevin Ding joined the show to talk about the Lakers’ loss to the Mavericks.

Ding said the key problem is that they haven’t respected their opponent. “They let the opponent hit them first,” Ding said.

Ding also said their big men were way too passive and can be a much bigger factor moving forward. Ding said Kobe Bryant gets frustrated by Pau Gasol. Bryant wants Gasol to be on the attack more.
