Kobe... who gets screwed by the refs, would benefit from a floater. Instead of slamming into a triple team, he could just float a shot over it (benefit of a floater is that you don't have to set your fee to shoot). It would lead to easy baskets in tight situations. You could throw out as many smart [Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] comments as you want. A floater would be an unstoppable weapon in Kobe's hands.
Atleast know the reason why certain gaurds use the floater. PG's use it because it helps them get the ball over the taller frontline players. They also use it to avoid the contact that normally comes from attacking. Kobe is 6-6 (ish) he already gets extension and height over any of his defenders. He also wants the contact because he wants to get to the line. It doesn't matter if the refs are calling it or not Kobe is going to attack and get the contact. More importantly he has better shots in his arsenal than a floater. More importantly their is nothing that says Kobe doesn't have it in his arsenal.
So if you are going to say people are making smart *** answers its because once again you created a off the wall criticism thread of Kobe. Again.
