My point is 3-20 and 7 turnovers is much much worse than simply put nicely a 'bad game', c'mon man.

Ugly game, should have fed Bynum earlier in the 4th. One of the worst shooting games I've ever seen from Kobe. It wasn't so much chucking as it was missing gimmes. Well, not until the end at least.

I just can't simply call it a bad game like you. That's where we'll have to agree to disagree. It was much worse than just a 'bad game' to me.

At some point during a game a player needs to recognize how his off night is hurting the team. I would love to see a stat on kobe's misses and how many times those misses are fast breaks. If you miss a shot by a big underneath there is much less chance for the team to get a fast break against you. Better floor balance when you hammer the ball inside.

This was no doubt a horrific game, not just bad. He's had a few of those this season.

Kobe just needs to work on not turning bad games into horrific games. The Lakers can still win when he has bad games, but not horrific games.

Kevin Martin may not play TUES so Kobe will be really tested vs HOU's Courtney Lee, Chandler Parsons and Chase Budinger. Those 3 dudes are above average perimeter defenders and they took turns defending Durant last week and wore him down and played excellent ball denial.

Right after this game is WEDS vs Shawn Marion & Mavs. Kobe's seriously due for a good shooting game vs these guys, its been years.

He's gonna be challenged this week, lets see how he handles it

This is how spoiled some of us are: We are fortunate enough to have the best scorer in the history of the game on our team and some of us can't live with nights that Kobe has like tonight. It happens guys get over it. He definitely took some bad shots but no one is perfect. Our weak ass defense was the main reason we lost

Kobe shot terribly and although this type of shooting is uncharacteristic, I truthfully have gotten used to him not shooting efficiently. Isn't this season his worst year pertaining to FG%? What bothers me about him, is his horrendous defense. Don't get me wrong, Drew and Pau (Milsap always destroys him) played terrible defense also so they aren't off the hook. I know Kobe roams on defense but he is lazy and he doesn't put a body on his defenders nor close out on them effectively. Alec Burks should not be having a career night against this team.

His mindset of shooting his way out of a slump hasn't worked the last 2 games. It worked during the 5 game winning streak. I think it's too late in his career to change that mindset though. The Lakers will live by Kobe shooting that many times, or die by Kobe shooting that many times.

Once again, I did not like this game by Kobe. YES, he made some clutch shots near the end or whatever, only had 1 turnover as compared to 7 last game, both good, but overall, chucked way too much, didn't have his shot going once again and thus should've moved the ball more. We were doing so well with what Sessions was giving us. Both him creating for himself as well as for everybody else (like a real point guard). God I wish Kobe would just accept to take at least a little step back. You see the box score and all of our players and that is one stat that jumps out at you BIG TIME in comparison to the rest, Kobe's horrible shooting percentage and how many attempts as well. [expletive] man. It is getting BEYOND frustrating. He can make some sort of adjustment if he truly wanted to, but that's the question, does he want to or is he willing to?

yo.

I think Kobe playing a lot of minutes is really hurting him. He's playing the 2nd most minutes in the league. Sometimes, he's not getting the same lift on his jumpshots. Maybe Ramon can help in that respect. If Mike Brown gets to a point where he can trust him as a go to guy, Ramon will grab most of the minutes at PG and Blake will grab more minutes at SG.

A point that hasn't really been brought up and I thought is worth mentioning. The addition of finally a true PG like Sessions bodes well for Kobe for many reasons, but specifically, this can help extend his career. IF he (Kobe) is disciplined enough and willing to let Ramon do his thing consistently and be the table setter, Kobe will expend much much less energy game in and game out and thus who knows, perhaps that could add a year or two more to his career.

Unfortunately Kobe tends to ignore the spot up shot and turns it into a 10 second ball stall. With 6-8 seconds left he tries to create a more difficult shot. This not only stalls the offense, it drops his shooting percentage appreciably. As the game goes on he loses stamina and I'm sure his shot percentage drops. If Kobe is the consumate professional he claims, he needs to learn to become a spot-up shooter for his sake and the teams.

Agree 100 percent. Kobe is hardheaded.
