u can only play facilitator for so long.
getting cold, the whole psychology behind making and missing. it's real. when shots aren't falling all game, you're confidence is down. you can see it in the player's body language. the majority of the time teammates would pass the ball as soon as they would get it. any opportunity they could give it to kobe, they would give it to kobe and then stand and watch. like i said, what is kobe supposed to do BUT shoot?
again, the 10 turnovers are really bad, but him and dwight are the only reason we were ever in this game
I get the whole getting cold thing and agree that it's 100% real because it happens all the time, but he didn't even try to get people into the game. I know I'm repeating myself but it's only because I find the facts to glaring and obvious.
If Kobe facilitates, we win. If he doesn't, we lose while Nash is out.
- Averaging 7 assists when we win and averaging 3 when we lose. How does this stat not just scream at you that it's obvious why we lose games?
Again yes, there are other factors here. Kobe is not the only reason we lost. Pau got blocked....I think 5 times? We missed our free throws and we just couldn't get much to fall in but this team/offense is designed with the basic principle that there's a facilitator and a guy who can find people for their shots.
So again, are you trying to maintain the argument that you'd prefer to see Kobe go iso every play or do you agree that he needs to be our guy while Nash is out?
