Someone said this asinine statement on another forum in reference to Kobe. One thing I CANNOT STAND, is people just reading the box score and not watching the game. Good lord, imagine this team without Kobe Bryant.
He was ballin' out to start the game, but it seemed to prevent the rest of the team from getting into rhythm. Furthermore, while he was catching and shooting off screens and taking smart shots to start the game, he's forced it a lot more in the second half.
