Rockets broadcaster says Lakers ‘pooped their big boy pants’ after losing in Houston



After the Lakers fell at home on Sunday to the Orlando Magic, Kobe Bryant was quoted as saying that Pau Gasol needed to “put on his big boy pants” and start playing with a little more toughness.

Gasol missed the Lakers loss in Houston on Tuesday due to tendinitis in his knees, but the Rockets radio broadcaster didn’t miss an opportunity to work in Bryant’s quote in ripping L.A. immediately following his team’s victory.

“The game is over! The game is over,“ shouted Craig Ackerman, who calls the games on the radio for the Rockets. “The Lakers have just pooped their big boy pants and the Rockets have come from 17 down to win it, 107-105.

Each team’s local broadcasting crew calls its games with varying degrees of homerism, depending on how much is tolerated or encouraged by the organization. It can be annoying if you’re just a fan of the league in general trying to catch a game on League Pass, but in this case, it’s hard to argue that the call was anything but a classic.

That has to go down as one of the all time end game calls, connecting Kobe's talk of big boy pants to him capitulating just warms my heart.

Really? "Havlicek stole the ball!"..."The Lakers have just pooped their big boy pants!"...I'm just not seeing it.

It's funny, but sounded stiff and contrived tbh.

Maldoror I understand your cyclops hesitance when it comes to the Lakers but Havlicek stole the ball is a classic call of a classic series but this was a well thought out loudly screamed saying to finish off a game, Kobe was talking all about big boy pants and it came back to bite him.

It just worked really well for anyone who is not a Lakers fan.
