There was a time when we would talk regularly and with great respect. And there was a time when we would not, replaced later by a lot of growling and confrontation.

The shift continues, the Lakers at their worst but Kobe at his best. And so what’s wrong with him? I begin.

“I find myself talking sometimes and I can’t believe what I just said,” he says with a hearty laugh. “Realistically I have only one year left, so I’m trying to enjoy myself.”

That's why people need to enjoy him instead of bashing him because like Micheal Jackson said "THIS IS IT". Too bad I never got to see him play live and in person, it'll forever bother me as a basketball fan. Right now I'm pretty po'd about it.

He shot 20 times today, I think you are forgetting that you need to criticize him.

lol... for real
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

But how many if we take away all the irrational post? 5 or 6 pages maybe?

i still find it incredible that knee procedure did THAT much for him. just remember that 2011 season when he looked like dirk does now, done. 1 legged, couldn't really run or jump correctly.

he's not 2003 kobe, or even 2008 kobe athletically but the fact that he's actually not that far from 2008 kobe is incredible.

He was able to do that dunk literally because he couldn't feel his ankle. You'd be surprised how much you can do when you can't feel pain.

Why? You still got another season, to make it. As for me I'll try to do my semester abroad in LA/Malibu next January to April and go to 2 or 3 games. It's a dream for me and I want to make it happen. :jam2:

I think Kobe is willing to facilitate THAT much because he's aware his legs are dead right now ...

These missed shots aren't only due to be out of rhythm ... all his shooting % are decreasing because of the MAJOR minutes he played for the 1st three months ...

He couldn't elevate above Sigler length to drain a J ... the lift isn't there right now .

Hopefully he can "recover" for a while and finish the season strong shooting wise ... that's a pattern for most of his seasons ... struggles in Jan/Feb and is back to his usual shooting self at the end of the regular season

He moves significantly better now than he did in 2011. Despite being 2 years older. The knee was pretty bad and his movement that year looked like retirement wasn't far

You don't see Ray Allen dunking like that anymore. He used to be a good dunker when he was younger.

He's not shooting very well, but I like how he's playing.

We were saved by his And1 late in the game against the Pistons.

Kobe hasn't been able to get in rhythm and be the scorer he is the last handful of games.

I thought the OKC game was one of his greatest games. Was able to get everyone involved, controlled the offense, picked his spots and NAILED shots when we needed them. It's not easy to do that though.

This is the downside of Magic Mamba :cry:

Yet as I watched him Monday, I could not help think how little it mattered and how right he is. He is not fading into the shadows. He does not know how to go out that way.[.]
