Ron Artest - 6/9 FG -- 2/3 3PT -- 4/5 FT
Pau Gasol - 4/7 FG -- 0/0 3PT -- 2/5 FT
Andrew Bynum - 1/3 FG -- 0/0 3PT -- 3/4 FT
Kobe Bryant - 16/28 FG -- 4/7 3PT -- 8/13 FT
Derek Fisher - 1/6 FG -- 0/4 3PT -- 0/0 FT
That's just the starters .. NO ONE else on that team got more than 10 shots. You can't tell me that with all of the talent on that team.. that there's no other viable option than Kobe.
Don't get me wrong - he kept them in the game .. but if you look at past games .. when everyone else in the game is getting shots rather than Kobe trying to win the game by himself - it usually ends in a win.
Kobe needs to start getting his teammates involved.. or the lakers need to find someone who will. When one person (granted its Kobe Bryant) has more shots than all four of the other starters COMBINED .. you know somethings not right.
Just my two cents. I was at work when the game was on.. I got home and checked the box score first .. didn't bother to watch the game after I saw that.
So you're thinking L.A. needs to trade Kobe? Okie Dokie good luck with that. BTW we almost won that game you're gonna have games where other guys aren't affective enough like this this one, and we're gonna have games where free throws hurt us like this one. And we're gonna have games where the last play comes down to a make or miss on a pass play or our coach not calling time out to draw up a play like this one. Yeah 28 shots were a lot but come on, no one else was aggressive today in other words we would've won if that Ron Artest shot went in but it didn't these games happens.
