With the Lakers trailing 117-115, Kobe penetrated and dished it to Luke Walton who subsequently gave him the ball back under the basket, but Bryant fumbled it and time expired as he slammed the ball to the floor of the Garden and yelled at Walton. They would still be playing had Kobe not fumbled the ball, but the blame was shifted to the second-year player from Arizona.
that's a shameless little piece of editorializing at kobe's expense
how could a newsperson say that "they would still be playing had Kobe not fumbled the ball"?
then again, after the "shaq is out for the year" fiasco, I'm not too shocked that the sports news media is this sloppy
