Dear, Kobe.

I understand what you have accomplished for yourself and for the laker fans, and I am wholeheartedly thankful for that.

Now, do you want another championship ring? Are you just about your personal achievements?

Well, we do want you to have one more ring if not more prior to your retirement. So hope you are on the same page...

Kobe, you need to stop hogging onto balls every single play on a half court set. We don't need Kobe of old who scored 81 points in a game; it is a disastrous recipe for losing.

The stats show, as we have another topic regarding to this, that if you score 30+ points, we are 1-9. Conversely, when you score 29 or less, we are 8-5. What does that tell you?

We need you to distribute! We, I mean the entire world, know that you are the best player in the universe and that you can score at will over any adversaries. 1vs2, 1vs3 does not matter because you are too good.

However, you will become greater than Michael Jordan if you start distributing and get everyone better and involved. And I know as a fact that you are more than capable of doing that.

We need a stat line of 20p-5r-7a-2s 15-19 shot attempts. This is our winning recipe. Believe me on this.
Go back to simple basketball instead of over dribbling. Quick and easy pick and pop with jamison or MWP as one example as you did with Josh Powell when we won recent championship.

I am utterly afraid if you will continue doing what you having been doing when Nash comes back.
If you ever read this, let me lay it plain and simple.


This is our new winning recipe.

Thanks, Kobe.

Tonight he scored 42 at over 50% shooting and you're complaining? How about you tell Jamison and Meeks whom he fed for threes to make their shots. No Laker had 5 assists tonight. That's called guys not hitting shots.

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

All I can say if Kobe didn't play selfish we would be losing by 15+ pts. He had to be selfish because none of em couldnt make squat when he facilitates.

I also think D'Antoni has to have the balls to letMeeks play more minutes to become comfortable. These guys have to learn to play without Kobe for stretches. KB can't EFF around playing 38 or 40 minutes per night no matter what the record

Kobe is scoring more when we find ourselves down in a game. It's not uncommon to see. Dwight isn't going to drop 30 against most teams, because those teams will foul him before he gets there (like they did Shaq, who never averaged 30 in his career, oddly enough), and we don't have another player on this team who can score 15 whenever he wants.

Bryant dropped 35 points, and seven assists, against the Thunder...and we still lost. Why did we lose? Kobe and Dwight did most of the work, but Durant and Westbrook dropped a combined 69 points...and Collison and Ibaka (the other two up front) had a combined 27 points, 13 rebounds, on 12-21 FG (57.1%) with very good defense on Jamison (who played poorly) and Jordan Hill (who was essentially irrelevant).

It's so difficult to post here right now.

Laker fans really pick the wrong games to complain about Kobe. There are plenty of games when you can criticize Kobe, but this isn't one of them.

What we need and what we are getting are different things. You don't make up for missing the best play maker on the team by taking on other teams by yourself. If Kobe couldn't facilitate, this wouldn't be a problem. He can...and he should.

Is that the reason we lose these games? There isn't one reason and it's not any one person's fault.

Greatness should be measured by ability to find a way to win. All I'm seeing is a person doing what he wants and and expecting everyone else to do the rest. Simmons may have been right...Kobe approaches the game and his teammate like they are there to serve him. That's not good.

This all coming from someone who has defended Kobe for most of his career, even through the rape charges. Having this much talent and not winning is inexcusable...great players find a way to win.

I'm seeing a player who expects everyone else to do their jobs...that includes the coaches.

Even MJ had players like BJ Armstrong, John Paxson, and Steve Kerr doing their part.

This team is the Kobe/Howard show with no coach

Laker fans are beginning to challenge Cowboy fans as the dumbest in sports.
