Even with foul trouble, Odom had what, under 5 shots in the game? Kobe was making more effort last year to help teammates last year, he avged like 6+ assists, but he is not doing that this year. Phil Jackson needs to set Kobe mind straight asap.
Boy Phil Jackson IS the guy that told Kobe he should take so many shots. Its not like Kobe is allowed what he wants and if we had ANY better option Jax would have burned Kobe. The point is there is no better option.
You know what sucks? Kobe right now can do whatever he wants. Shot 60 times or 5 times or 20 times or whatever. We suck as a team , there is no cohesiveness and the rest can´t hit a shot to save their life. THEY CAN´T.I must become more obvious
McKie 20% (0% 3FG)
Lamar 42% (28% 3FG)
Sasha 29% (26% 3FG)
Profit 42% (15% 3FG)
Gump 39% (34% 3FG)
Kobe 44% (12% 3FG)
Our FT shooting sucks too.
Lamar 63% (2-12 in the last 2 games, are you kidding me
And all of this guys are annoying as hell cuz they just can´t hit open shots. They suck to say it more obvious. THESE GUYS SUCK. And you know why? Because we do not have an inside-out game. Because we don´t feed the bigmen and we rather take jumpshots and 3s and look at those stats and you see why we suck. We are a shooting team with a shooting mentality without the ability to shoot. If thats the new triangle it sucks, but I´m sure its not. We take as many high percentage shots as Phoenix, Seattle and this teams. We have a mentality problem. Lose a game is something that happens but being outhustled at home is BEYOND inexcusable. Getting crushed on the boards and not even contest the rebounds is annoying not Kobes shooting 30 times. Now you see how we miss Kwame. Double whopper´s like Sweetney looked like Dennis Rodman on the boards.
