One, a decent chunk of Kobe's shots are ones he normally makes. If he were, in another game, to take these same shots and make them, most of his biggest critics here would be sucking his ballsac.
Second, the Laker offense if getting Kobe bad shots. If Mike Brown keeps running iso's, the defense has the opportunity to stack up on Kobe, making him take difficult, contested shots. If you notice, our offense has been pretty terrible the entire season, and it's no surprise that's been associated with a lower offensive output on Kobe's part.
