These are times I'd rather Kobe keep shooting and take my chances than watch Sacre with the ball and know the outcome beforehand. That is how Kobe is, for better or worse, you'd think we'd be used to it by now. I have said repeatedly that I want Nash having the ball way more, controlling the offense more, shooting more, but for whatever reason he isn't and hasn't. But again this is all offense, I still believe defense is our main problem. Right after I made that post above I immediately regretted it honestly though, because I don't even know why I'm arguing this. I don't mean that as in why am I wasting my time when I know I'm right or some arrogant way, because I think both sides make valid points. I just mean I'm so tired of arguing about this team right now, we suck so bad as a team right now, arguing shot totals and such seems so unimportant, I just want wins. I don't care who's fault it is we're losing I just want it to stop, I don't have the energy to argue Kobe and how much he shot anymore, it's all draining and a downer in what was supposed to be a great season.
I still don't think that when you're surrounded by the guys you mentioned, that the best strategy is to NOT play as a team.
I mean, the Raptors (and other teams we have played) have some real nobodies on their team but they played a great team game and that's how they beat us. I mean, no one shot more than 15 times. We had one player who nearly took more shots than all of his fellow starters COMBINED.
It's just so clear that we need to figure out how to play as a TEAM, that it just puzzles me that we continue to resort to strategies that don't accomplish anything positive. At least do something that either generates wins, or generates team cohesion. Why would we ever want to do anything that does neither? Ugh.
