Kobe's not slumping. A slump for Kobe means he shoots poorly for maybe 2-3 games and then goes back into Kobe mode. What has happened to him is clearly due to the injury and also him taking horrible shots. This has been going on for too long now for us to just excuse it as a slump and assume he'll be fine "next game". He's just not going to get better by playing, and when May rolls around and he's still shooting like this we're gonna be dead meat. This warrior attitude of his is going to be the demise of this team in the playoffs if he can't shoot the ball efficiently against teams like the Nuggets and Cavs.
