GOOD GOD I LOVE THIS MAN.



yea but we won that year. i hate seeing us lose like this


but i do want kobe to break the captains hold on the all time scoring list, given that we win 2 more which equals to 7 for the black mamba that is


We didn't win it that year. That was the year Shaq "recovered on company time" and missed most of the early season. Lakers struggled, but Kobe scored a ton. We lost to S.A. in 2nd round.

yeah that's what i was going to say. they started 11-19 that season and shaq missed alot of time early on

So the Lakers are no longer winless this season when Kobe Bryant scores 30 points. That still won't stop BSPN from spewing their rhetoric backed up with misleading stats.

BSPN wrote:Bryant scored 40 points (13-24 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 9-11 FT) to go with four boards, six assists and two blocks in 44 minutes Wednesday in the Lakers' 126-114 loss to the Nuggets.

Spin:
The Lakers are now an astonishing 0-7 this season in games where Bryant has scored 35-plus points, so while it's not a winning formula for his team, Bryant's fantasy owners certainly have nothing to complain about.

I agree with everything but the 'anymore' part. He's never gotten superstar treatment, hardly at all, especially after the rape trial.

the correlation between kobe scoring 35+ and losing has more to do with the teams overall play most of the time. there are games where him shooting too much cost us a game bc of lack of ball movement. but since nash got back that hasnt been the case. hes scored 35+ and our defense cost us games or our lack of energy and hustle.

we need to play desperate and were not it seams.

I really want D'Antoni fired for playing Kobe 43-44 minutes per game...

WTF is wrong with LA's coaches? He will have no legs going into 2013...and he won't stop shooting but he will stop hitting them. We are about to have a desaster soon.

I think they dont want to be the next coach to be fired during the regular season. That and I dont think they have enough talent to make everyone else around him better, therefore limiting our dependency on Kobe.

Seriously, they probably think Kobe is some sort of a cyborg or something. Human body have it's limits (even Kobe's for God's sake). How can a 17 year veteran, guy with most minutes and "high usage" be a league leader in minutes played???!!?!!?!!?! :freak2: And i thought i saw it all :bang:

desperately...

I really feel the pain when Kobe plays this many minutes....its just wrong. With 17 years of NBA basketball in his legs, there is no way he should be getting this heavy load of minutes and offensive responsibility to carry...

thats crazy man. He is playing like 43+ minutes pretty much every game recently. Of course Kobe isn't going to back down from the challenge and if his number is called, he will be there on the floor. Its just that any human being would have already been dead in the water with the mileage that he has. The fact that he is playing out of his mind with so many minutes is already unbelievable.

But how long? at some point either we are in for a flux of injuries or a huge drop in efficiency. You cannot win in the playoffs if you ride him to death now. He is doing legendary stuff right now, no question.

To quote fat*** Barkley from 3 years ago: "the days of Kobe Bryant scoring 30 a night are gone, he isn't gonna do that anymore, thats gone"....

hello Chuck...please check NBA.com/stats.

We could play Jamison at the 3 and MWP at the 4 and have them cross match defensively. That way Kobe won't be playing extra minutes and we still get the scoring from Jamison. Defensively there won't be a difference.

It annoys the piss out of me that we have two coaches this season and last that are clueless about rotations. My only real complaint about MDA so far. Solid rotations win you ball games in the regular season, rested stars with fresh legs bring it home in the playoffs.

Morris doesn't need to play, Jamison should be getting those minutes as well. If you're going to use a short rotation at least include the good players in it.

I was extremely surprised at that. The way the media rides lebron so much, and even kd oover kobe to a degree, you'd think kobe would be #3 at the highest. Guess the public feels differently.

Then I got a call from Leon (my agent) saying they were going to let me go. They told me I played great. The numbers on the business side just wouldn’t work. It was one of the worst phone calls I’ve ever gotten, but I was at peace because I knew I played my [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] off.

People had jokes. People wrote me off. It was embarrassing. However, I took positives away from my month with the Lakers too.

I developed a relationship with Kobe Bryant. He showed me how to be a pro. He showed me real work ethic. Playing against him everyday made me so much of a better player. He understood me. He understood that its a difference in having a bad attitude and being competitive and wanting to win every drill/game. One night after a game and we were in the showers and he told me ‘you have no other choice. You were put here to be basketball player. You have to fight until you’re one of them boys. You’re too talented. I played behind mfers that I was better than up until my third year but I KNEW I would be who I am today then. I work too hard not to break through.’

That stuck with me. So I appreciate the opportunity the Lakers gave me. I looked at that month with the Lakers as an internship under Bean. I gained knowledge that I couldn’t have gotten any other way. That’s what I took from that situation. It’s all about how you respond when times are rough.”



—Chris Douglas-Roberts on his short stint with the Lakers and as he calls it, his “internship under Bean”

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.[.]

Just an awesome quote.

Kobe has mentored so many players but doesn't get credit in media
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.

It's cause he's a ball hog and obviously stunts the growth of all his team mates, just ask ESPN after they changed Drew's words.

I couldnt care less about the streak. Im glad its over actually. Kobe played great tonight. A couple of weird possessions but overall, very very good.

If he will let Nash run this ship, he will be so much better.

Glad both of Kobe's streaks are over (mins and points). The points stuff was fun when he was 26-27, now it's just sad when he has to put up that many points and we still lose.
