And it's over now. No wonder he was hot doo doo out there at the end of the first half. This is truly sad. Time to regroup. :man6:

Man no wonder he's missing all his 3's so bad, missing free throws, playing worse than ever on defense. I mean it doesn't excuse it all of that, but it does help explain it some to me at least. For one, he doesn't need to be chucking 3's when we're only down 5 or 6 with what was it, like 4 to 6 minutes left? The turnovers are hurting us bad as well, and the defense, it just isn't there at all, and with a guy like Kobe it's either bad because of his gambling, not respecting certain players, or because he's hurt, not really because he simply doesn't try.

Damn that's horrible news. What's the process usually with bone spurs, will it heal on its own?

Kobe hasn't been himself since the ankle injury. He made some great shots against Minnesota; nevertheless, he just doesn't look right out there. I know he's going to try to tough it out, and I can respect that. However, if he plays like he did today in that 4th quarter, he's doing this team more harm then good by being out there, IMO.

We are the only dumb team to take our super star for granted and think he's super human and decides to let the coach run him for 40+ minutes all season, and what happens? he's all banged up towards the end, we seen this before..

Kobe plays 38-40 minutes all season and people say he's a warrior and he's not declining just yet..(truth is he IS declining..health wise)..then he has all sorts of injuries towards the season..Lakers lose in the playoffs...Kobe has a "well rested" off season..avgs 36+ minutes again the next season only to get banged up before the most crucial part of the season.

I hate MDA, and I blame this on the FO for not creating enough depth. This season has been the worst, by far. At least the dark years of 04-07 was entertaining..this..this is just bad.

You're completely right about the minutes. I said it coming into this season that Kobe should be at no more then 34 minutes a game. Period. It just hasn't worked out that way. Blame, the FO, coach, whomever. This is the time of the season that we come to rely upon Kobe. Instead, all the wear & tear of the season is causing injuries to our best player.

He shouldn't play. Standing around not playing defense is not helping.

Pringles will smile and say he wants to rest Kobe more but the guy wants to play. To which I cant help but wonder if he actually knows that he's the head coach and not the equipment manager or something. I dont mean to sound harsh but its nothing short of idiotic to manage a player with this kind of extensive mileage in such a manner.

Garnett, Duncan, Allen, Pierce, Kidd and Dirk are the other active players to hit the 40K minutes played mark (Dirk is just shy right now). When you factor in playoff minutes I think Kidd is the only one with a higher combined total than Kobe. Wonder what would happen if you played any of them close to 40mpg for an entire season.

No one else currently in the Top 25 for most minutes played this season is 30 or older.

Ridiculous.

Our 11 pts lead dissapeared as soon as he re-entered the game ... TOs, Casper like defense ... getting more and more stubborn as he's aging I guess ...

The whole team is average but he sure not helping lately

To blame anything other than our D (as a team, with pau being the weakest link) is completely short-sighted.
yeah he missed shots and turned the ball over, butonce again, the biggest reason we duck is our invisible, unworthy-of-playoffs defense

Dwight enraged a voodoo witch doctor that was a Magic fan and he put a curse on the Lakers, it's seriously the only explanation I can find. :man11: :man6:
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

Kobe was playing on a very high level before the injury, after the injury he hasn't been the same & it shows. Injuries this season our too much & already having lost Metta there's no way we get past the 1st round, if we make it that is...

MILWAUKEE – After the Los Angeles Lakers’ 113-103 loss to the Bucks on Thursday night, Kobe Bryant left the arena on a crutch as he couldn’t place pressure on his left foot, headed to a specialist Friday in Sacramento.

The Lakers won’t fly out to Sacramento until Friday morning and said they’ll provide an update after Bryant’s visit to the specialist after a bone spur in his left foot flared up. Bryant spent extended stretches of the fourth quarter with a wrap around his left foot without his shoe on. With 6:47 left in the fourth as the Lakers called a timeout down three points Thursday, Bryant sat near the end of the bench, removed the wrap on his foot and entered the game.

Bryant led the Lakers with 30 points, but he committed six turnovers and missed all three 3-point attempts. As Marquis Daniels crowded him physically all night, Bryant vented his frustration to the officials throughout the game.

Before opting for one crutch to bring Bryant out of the Bradley Center, the Lakers briefly considered using a wheelchair, two people with knowledge of the injury told RealGM late Thursday night. Bryant sat out two straight games earlier in the week with a severe left ankle sprain.

“Regardless of how [Bryant’s] feeling, he always plays – unless he can’t walk," Jodie Meeks told RealGM after the game. “So he’ll be ready for us.”

One player after another, the Lakers have been decimated by injuries this season, most recently losing Metta World Peace to a torn meniscus in his left knee. Steve Nash also sat out the final 17:13 of Thursday’s game with a right thigh injury, but both he and Mike D’Antoni expect him to play on Saturday against the Kings.

Lakers players know they need everyone at this point, and the Utah Jazz are just a half-game behind Los Angeles for the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

“We don’t need anybody else to get injured or be out or miss any games, especially at this point in the year,” Pau Gasol said. “Let’s see what happens. Hopefully Kobe will be healthy for next game.”

He has averaged 4.4 TOs for the past 2 months now. He has had 6+ in three of his last 4 games. He has embarassed himself at least a dozen times this season.

In 11 games in March, he has had 5+ in 7 of those games. Topping it with a putrid 9 vs. Toronti.
In 13 games in February, the FEWEST he has had were 3 TOs.

He has had 5+ TOs in 27 games this season. He has had 7+ in 5 games this season. These are not bad...these are embarassingly terribly awful numbers. He absolutely SUCKS at keeping the ball safe.And all that while playing with probably the best playmaker in the NBA. He wants to lead the NBA...well he does lead the NBA in exactly 2 stats...shot attempts and TOs. #countonmamba


Instead, he is busy working his way up to the pinnacle of stupidity on twitter...oh well, I'm happy he flames out late in his career rather than early. #mambaout

Really makes me wish we had someone in the mold of Pop who is better at monitoring his players minutes than anyone else in the NBA.

I know you love Kobe and I know the turnovers gotta kill you, but you can't really believe what you just posted. Twitter has nothing to do with any problems he has on the court.

And, Kobe has not flamed out.
