      yea hes getting a lot of criticism for that…but it happens if only only play 34-35 minutes a game.

      this should be Kobe’s stat line for the 2008-09 season:

      28.5 Points
      6.5 Rebounds
      6.0 Assists
      48% FG
      88% FT
      1.5 Steals
      36 Minutes Per Game (no more than that)

      I dont think that’s asking for a lot from the MVP and best player in the world :)

      his assists are just fine..we’re scoring plent of points a game so theres not much else we need to do on that end of the floor and that includes kobes assists..besides the only stat that matters is the W..

      Kobe doesn’t need more assists, the offense that they run everybody touches the ball, its not like chris paul running the entire offense, everybody gets touches on the laker team so everybody gets an X ammount of assists.

      Kobe is begining to look like the Kobe we have all been waiting for! he’s starting to fill it up from the three like he used to 3 seasons ago! he also continues to give his team-mates good looks! if he can keep this up he’s bound for another MVP MVP MPV!!!

      Maybe you could change the page name title Bryant named Western Conference player of the month | The Lakers Nation to more generic for your subject you write. I enjoyed the post however.
