They haven't batted an eye in the Absence of World Peace (you just can't get enough of that can you?)
There are at least four reasons why they've been able to play so well without Artest's presence and here they are.
Now some of you will notice that there's no Kobe Bryant slide. I'm sure you will ask why I don't have one.
The reason I don't have one is that Kobe is going to be Kobe, whether World Peace is there or not. Kobe's been fantastic, scoring 69 points on 53 shots.
If he had a slide, it would be the biggest reason, but he would be the biggest reason regardless.
