Afflalo wasn't doing anything spectacular out there, Kobe just missed a bunch of shots that are usually automatic. Many of those shots are as easy as a lay-up for Kobe.

Exactly. MDI be givin' too much credit to Afflalo.

Luke Walton has a high basketball IQ. It's just his body and talent doesn't make up for his intelligence.

U should know Kobe by now. He tries to pull himself out of bad shooting nights. If it doesn't work, we see games like this.


Exactly. I would argue he probably averages more shots on bad shooting nights than good shooting nights

Kobe keeps shooting to pull himself out

If Luke Walton had such a high bball IQ, then he wouldn't shoot the ball.

Pau Gasol is GONE

Which he doesn't. He only shoots when wide open which IQ tells you to do because you cannot pass up wide open shots

See Andre miller taking 3 3 pointers despite beig an awful shooter. He is smart just like Luke is. Your fighting a losing argument

Tough game to watch in crunch time. Kobe was just cold tonight. Should've took some mid range shot instead of jacking up 3s

Again, if Luke had a high bball IQ, he wouldn't shoot the ball; I don't give a [expletive] if a defender was 20 ft from him...that mutha[expletive]a can't shoot the ball.

Furthurmore, if he had a high bball IQ, he wouldn't make some of the terrible passes he makes. Been saying it for years: his passing is overrated as [expletive].

Centers pass up wide open shots all the time...when they're behind the 3pt line and Puke should follow suit.

Worst basketball player ever.

Pau Gasol is GONE

Look tonight is the reason Kobe is great. He's not afraid of shooting. Lebron goes 1-8 and he'll finish the game 1-8

Great players think the next one will go in. It's that gene that makes Kobe clutch.

Now realistically we win this game if we go to Bynum and pau the whole game.

But you can't tell Kobe to change himself because it's what makes him great. It's something that he has won 5 championships because of. You move on to the next game. Kobe won't have many games like this

This. +1

But I have to say though that I hate it when Kobe does this.

Points Kobe 16 Bynum and Pau 38


Kobe should have stopped at 18 like yesterday.


He is not even being doubled anymore.

Yes he was doubled some times, but we get it Kobe played horribly and cost us the game lets hope MB has the balls to call Kobe out on it and he responds better next time.

I agree I think he cost us the Chicago game and tonights game imo those losses are mostly Kobe's fault.

^ EASILY could've lost us yesterday's as well. Somewhat of a miracle Bynum did just enough to save his arse.

No you obviously know nothing about basketball. Your just a chicken little who rambles off BS that they hear everyone else saying

Luke has an incredibly high B-ball IQ. It is why Phil Jackson gave him Actual minutes on a championship level team in his rookie year


Last Stand is one of a handful of people on this board who have a clue about NBA basketball. Luke has a very high basketball IQ, unfortunately that is all that he has.

As for Kobe, you gotta take the good with the bad, he has always jacked up tons of shots ESPECIALLY when he is cold, that is just how he plays.

You guys are seriously underrating Afflalo'd defense Kobe is shooting 40.6% from the field in his career vs Aflallo he knows how to defend him. Also makes him commit 4 turnovers a game

http://www.basketbal...01&p2=afflaar01

And ^ those stats are BEFORE tonight's game

Every once in a while Kobe lays an egg. Its ok, because every once in a while he'll drop 50 or 60 (or 81).

Also, every time Kobe is breaking a record (like tonight, youngest ever to reach 28000), he seems to have decided before the game, that he will score a lot.
