Also read this you all quoted me but didnt read this part

Edit after further research into every game, in all 9 games Kobe Bryant only had ONE game of the NINE (except the GS one) where he had another all-star which was Shaq in one of the games, which was in 2003 when Shaq had just recently came back from injury etc etc etc. The most recent one in 2008 was when Kobe was tryign to keep the Lakers afloat after Bynum had just gone down befor Pau Gasol arrived.

Point is: it was bad

funny thing is you are critizising the future hall of famer and leagues most scored points player ever. he will surely pass kareem and michael jordan someday and no one will care about the warriors game anymore!

Are you serious?.... This is by far the dumbest post I have read on the LN forums. No offence. But WTH does Kobe being one of the greatest of all time have to do with him shooting 41 attempts NOW and in the PRESENT time?

I don't care what Lakers Fans say about Kobe taking 41 and that it was to many.
The commentators for both the Lakers and Warriors didn't even criticize Kobe's shot attempts.

1) The Lakers won
2) I haven't see that much emotion by the players/bench in any game all year
3) Kobe is a scorer. How do you score without shooting?
4) He shot like 40% which isn't even bad.
5) The Lakers won

Another player taking 41 shots yea but its Kobe taking those shots maybe you don't know nothing about Kobe Bryant.

You can't even put together a comprehensive sentence. So be quiet. Oh its only okay for Kobe to take 41 shots......oh well thats homerism right there..

funny thing is you are critizising the future hall of famer and leagues most scored points player ever. he will surely pass kareem and michael jordan someday and no one will care about the warriors game anymore!

Be quiet. First you don't know if he will pass Kareem. Second it doesn't excuse him from criticism. Stop riding him jeez....you got a crush on him or something?

HE IS MY ******* IDOL!

So its basicly normal that i talk like that and support him whenever, whever I can! Im really laughing about the support of several lakers fans and still critizising a players attitude in a game and dont underline the result that WE WON and that no one cares days after what he did with his shots or what he didnt.

this guy is kobe bryant. we all are used to kobe being this major shot taking so its nothing new... its just stupid to underline that as a negative outpointing instead of cheering the effort of the team and the win!

So your saying all of them he was hacked on and we should blame the refs. Okay.


When 70% of your shots are point blank range and only 4 are long range shots throughout the entire first quarters. (yes just 4!) and you are beating everyone off the dribble getting to the basket to take shots you HAVE to get fouled on in order to hit and he gets fouled on them but never gets a foul called.

And before you say "well adjust to how the refs are calling it and don't take the ball inside"

If Jodie Meeks had done that we wouldn't have gotten both layups(he was fouled on but also got no call) which ultimately helped us along our run.

And Kobe did adjust his game to just getting himself open iso jump shots from the 4th quarter onwards, and he shot 50% at that point and tied the game and hit a lot of big shots.

The thing is players no matter who you are shouldn't have to adjust to not getting hit under the basket when they drive, it's not their fault the guy can't defend them and it's not their fault that the other team has to foul them to stop the shot from going in, THAT lays on the refs.

You may as well tell Dwight to stop calling for the ball under the basket because he's gonna get fouled.

Kobe who averages almost 10 free throws a game had 70% of his shots directly at the basket or inside the key at ranges he had to be fouled at to miss. Yet he only shot ONE free throw, and that was a technical.


There's acting like you don't notice and then there's just obliviousness. It was a factor in his shooting percentage and unjust the way that game was reffed whether you like it or not.

And I could have sworn you were one of the guys begging for Kobe not to come back into the fourth quarter and then were screaming for him to take over the game when it got late and he started hitting shots.

subtle.

My problem with Kobe is him making the game harder than it has to be. I don't mind him taking clutch shots...I have a problem with the other 30 shots he didn't have to take in traffic with great teammates around him.

If you gave me 41 shots, I could score 30+ ppg too!!


NO.... YOU COULDN'T......... Complain about the # of shots, but please don't suggest that "great teammates" would make those same shots

Im not even making a big deal out of it. All I am saying is that in any context 41 shots is too much for a game. No one can comprehend this? Yet we have Kobe Bryant fans here coming to his defence like I am personally attacking the man.

kobe took 41 shots.. he deserves criticism..


Why does the # of shots Kobe takes cause people to create a thread? After 17 years ...... as if its something new...as if there is some catysclismic enlightenment to be bestowed upon us by doing so?? Or is this just another ploy to start an argrument?
Do you get extra credit for starting posts?.......Is there a prize?
It would serve a higher purpose if you went through his shot selection shot by shot so we could decide in what situation if it was a good or bad shot. If we were behind....at what time did another teammate defer to Kobe ....... and which teammates did he take the ball from to shoot

Actually this thread is about a cool shot he hit, but it was overrun by people who like to argue.

Everyone was happy we won.....but I criticize, like many others, players that did bad things in the game no matter win or lose. Kobe is my idol too but I'm not going to bow down to him like a god and view him as perfect that doesn't do anything wrong.

No, you can blame him for that.

A refs calls shouldn't dictate you not moving the ball around.

Kobe being Kobe! if you want to blame some1 for him taking all them shots 1st = refs; 2nd D12 foolish foul trouble; Pau not looking to score; Nash should have shot more himself. kobe just tried to win as usual at any costs.

lol but 41 is far to many. that crowd was going cr8z for 2nd half of momentum swings.

No but your teammates not making themselves available options to pass to does.

When does it become Pau's fault that he was camping the three point line or his teammates fault for standing on the strong side past two defenders which would have resulted in turnovers if he passed it to them rather than taking the open layup?

You only bring up Pau. Kobe has more teammates than Pau. He had Metta, Nash, Hill, and Meeks.
