Phil Jackson once explained this, but he talked about Vlad Rad, not Kobe: "He has to shoot to get hot. If he hits them, he'll shoot more to stay hot. If he misses, he'll shoot some more so he can get hot." :man12:

Every time Bynum gets it though he's triple teamed. Pau is settling for jumpers.

I'd rather have Bynum put pressure on them than have Ebanks shooting......

All of those shots actually came after pounding the ball inside. They double, kick out, re-post, kick out, shot.
And most of them were good open shots, just didn't fall

Agreed... but when you don't have shooters is that really smart basketball?.... Bynum and Pau put pressure on them.... get fouls and put them on their heels..... Missed jumpers play right into their hands.... and we are not a good jump shooting team....
