I'll take Kobe calling his number when they're playing like that.
that's misleading bc a lot of the offensive struggles were due to lack of ball movement. When Kobe is making a effort to NOT pass the ball and chuck bad shots up then it's gunna hurt the team.
This is plain and simple: bulls***. And you know it. The team sucked offensively right form the get-go, and no one was complaining in the first half about Kobe's "lack of ball movement." That's because it's a fabrication. A post hoc
Oh no. That's bulls***! Kobe had like one play where he tried to make a play for someone else. Otherwise it was a shot attempt. Kobe wasn't the only one not moving it.... no one outside of Nash did much moving of the ball.
So the offensive struggles were due to a lack of ball movement (that was Kobe's fault)? Why weren't there complaints about it early on? Why was Kobe hitting shots? Why was Hill hitting shots? Why did Nash hit shots?
If Kobe's shots were so bad, why did he shoot so well?
Yes. Not all Kobe's fault but 0 assists from a guard is inexcusable.
I complained about it early. I always complain when there is no ball movement. Thats my #1 gripe all the time. Only Nash was dishing and setting up guys.
Kobe hit a lot of shots off passes from Nash and ISO. He never really made a real play for anyone at any time in the game.
Are you really saying your interpretation of the game is that we moved the ball really well as a team, executed well, just didnt knock down shots? We looked awful all game long IMO.
