Nobody is saying he's the problem.
because i've seen numerous posters here saying that kobe is the problem or part of it
Well, there's a big difference between being the problem, and being part of the problem. I didn't think it was the case in the Clippers game though. He played a solid floor game.
Do I think he is a part of the problem in terms of why we're a sub .500 team? Yes. Do I think he is THE problem? No.
If you want a specific example... do I think his poor defense this season plays a part in our less than stellar record? Yes. Do I think his poor defense is THE reason for our less than stellar record, not at all.
At the same time, he is doing some things out there in terms of scoring that I think has helped this team. It's just about putting it all together.
I do think it is somewhat telling though, when you see plays like when Kobe passes to Dwight who has his back turned because he doesn't think he's going to get it and the ball goes out of bounds, occasionally off Dwight's head. And I may be wrong on this but, it feels like, to me, we haven't seen a Dwight basket off a Kobe assist in quite some time. I just think the chemistry is just not there between these two guys yet. Why exactly, I'm not sure but they don't seem at all like a dynamic duo to me.
