I have said it before and will say it again, if his decision making doesnt improve (which I doubt it will), when his physical abilities erode enough, he will be looked upon like Allen Iverson was looked upon. At 45%, he is already on the boarder of being a volume shooter. If his FG% ever drops to say 43%, Kobe will be really close to being forced out of the NBA. The fact of the matter is that Kobe is becomming more and more one dimensional and when you are a scorer and cant score effectively or efficiently, then your days are numbered. I am not saying that day is here, but I see it on the horizon.
Look at the game against Golden State for example. IMHO, Phil Jackson kept him out of the game because he was afraid Kobe would shoot the Lakers into a deeper whole. This is the approach a coach takes with a volume shooter.
LMAO... you are persistent.
So now Kobe uses his athleticism to outplay people? Maybe I missed all your post screaming about Kobe not being athlletic anymoere. What is more funny is that Kobe averages 22-27 SPG since basically coming into the league. I think you just hope they get rid of Kobe cause of your hate for the man.
