I know he is leading the league in scoring, problem is he takes way too many shots. On a team with Pau Gasol, Steve Nash and Dwight Howard there is no excuse to jack up 40 shots. He has to break his mentality that he is the "be all-end all" player and become a part of the team. Meeks would probably do pretty well in his spot with Nash at the helm.

LOL...

Huge cojones on this one...I commend you sir for being brave enough to come on this board and make that statement. I think you have a screw loose but I can't help but applaud your bravery.


As far as this team being better without Kobe, no...I think this team would be better if Kobe bought into the offense but that's not likely going to happen.

Oh well.

I'd be pretty confident to guess that if Kobe had to miss 15 games due to injury, you would see Nash and D'antoni right the ship. With Nash they are 3-2, pretty competetive in all the games and wins over Golden State and New York. Yet after a loss Kobe will complain and say it's because they are old, slow, stuck in the mud, etc. which translates to "It's never my fault, no matter what." I think jacking up 40 shots a game when you have 3 other all stars on your team is not the best game plan, especially not night after night.

Someone said the team would be better if Kobe bought into the offense, that is definitely true.

Since when is Kobe averaging 40 shots a game?

Ask, and you shall receive. After my last post, this poster came out from under his bridge to underscore my point. I guess the law of averages shows that with a large fan base the Lakers are destined for some less than stellar followers.

I will be honest with you. I am here because Steve Nash got traded to the Lakers and I became a fan by default because he is my favorite player. I didn't like the Lakers beforehand. I was pretty excited because of the "super-team" they assembled though. I still think they can make it work, Kobe just has to check the ego.

you cant buy into a system that hasnt been established yet! = Nash has missed far too many gms along with Pau. Pau making $20 mill per yr & giving the Lakers a reserve role player production = is the #1 thing plaguing this team. Next is NAsh being injured; then Coach D waiting for 20 gms before finally making drastic changes to the rotations, next D12 is not 100%; ; next no spot up shooters; lastly the teams overall effort on defense

He doesn't average 40 shots a night so I don't understand your point

Lakers need to run the offense and pass the ball more.
The whole team is playing badly right now.
This isn't squarely a Kobe thing.

3 other all stars?

lol, pau is done, nash is good, but hes no longer an all star, and dwight is playing hurt right now which is resulting in his play looking off on any given night

without kobe, we would probably be the worst team in the league right now
