An insight to the NEW Kobe Bryant.

L.A. Times: More than their star, more than their leader, Bryant is the Lakers’ face. During Friday’s practice, despite the curses being tossed from three-point line to paint, that face was one of patience and restraint.

Drives me crazy. Suits him fine.

Bryant agreed that for probably the first time in his career, he has gone three postseason games without putting his stamp on any of them.

But, no, he’s not ready to change anything yet.

“I’m going to stick to the script,” he said. “I’m going to get the guys involved early, work it inside, get them going . . . and if that doesn’t work, then go to me.”

But, c’mon, it took nine minutes for him to score in Game 1, it required eight minutes for him to score in Game 2, and it was nearly halftime before he scored in Game 3.

The first two games, the Lakers survived. The third game, they imploded, with Bryant’s fingerprints all over the wreckage. When he finally started looking for the basket, he couldn’t find it, and the Lakers were lost.

    In Kobe we trust.

    And I’m tired of all these fake Laker fans on here. Too many “fans” have a negative attitude. If you thought we were going to sweep the Jazz you were buggin’. I was hopping we could but loosing Thursday doesn’t make me jump to a bunch of stupid conclusions. It’s a long road to the Championship and I’m confident we will come out on top.

    Go Lakers!!

    Yeah we believe in Kobe. He knows he shouldn’t do what he did a few years back against phoenix. I know he gonna come up soon or later and take over when it’s needed. He knows what’s his job.

    Lets go Lakers. Lets beat them.

    i believe he knows what he has to do…however with that being said, indeed he does need to look to balance out facilitating with trying to get his own..i believe he can make the proper adjustment for tonight as well as for the future

    The Lakers lost 1 playoff game! Are you serious Plaschke? It took you the longest time to jump on the bandwagon…are you ready to get off now? The article had some vintage Kobe quotes, but it was just an unnecessary piece! Sort of like how I think that Plaschke is an unnecessary journalist! Kobe’s quotes were great! Classic Kobe, distancing himself from everybody else and alienating his teammates. Lol! Like that comment about him not having the luxury of having a Pippen on his team? I’m sure that LO enjoyed that very much. He also just b!tch slapped LeHype straight across his fat arrogant face! I love it…classic Kobe!

    Questions answered! Kobe, or Mamba as he was tonight, showed why he is STILL the best player on the planet. Sorry prince lebron, you’re not ready to take that spot just yet no matter how much BSPN washes your balls.
