"He had 14 assists tonight and he's only had 12 assists in the last 20 games," exaggerated Al Jefferson (Bryant had 13 over the three previous games). "When he's moving the ball like that, the way they he did tonight, it just gives everybody a chance to get in a great groove. They became a difficult team to stop."

That's nice of Al to be keeping track of Kobe's stats.

I think he was just saying how the Lakers moved the ball great that game.

Regarding Kobe's assists, he average more if players can knock down their shot at a consistent basis.

KOBE. #VINO. BRYANT.

I don't think that's a diss. Al isn't that kinda dude to be giving out disses. I think he was criticizing his own team for allowing Kobe to carve them up like that

He said in an interview a few years ago that Kobe's the best player in the NBA.

I don't think it was anything disrespectful. Kobe is not known for dishing, and then he gets 14 dimes against Al's team. I think all he meant was that Kobe's facilitating and the team play of the Lakers caught them off guard. The first two games were pretty much a cake walk for the Jazz, and the team they saw last night was totally different. Actually played like a team.

Duh, Kobe has a reputation of not passing the ball.

It is kind of a shot, but so many people have said it that you can't really single Al Jefferson out. It's been a running thing for a long time.

Extremely subtle shot, almost nothing at all.

Some truth to it though, although the team as a whole was hotter than usual offensively, when Kobe distributes all around, we usually have good success.

I'll admit I love Kobe gunning all game long and going off for 40 or 50, it's really fun to watch, but we almost always lose when that happens. Seems like every blowout Kobe scores less than 20 and makes more of an effort to keep the ball moving.

Everyone knows that when Kobe passes, the Lakers win. It's only a few Kobe Zealots who don't seem to understand anything that justifies the criticism that has long followed Kobe's career.

They would rather the Lakers lose than see Kobe's detractors given any credit for their statements on Kobe's shot attempts or lack of leadership.

When Kobe passes, the Lakers are a VERY good team...one of the best in the NBA (offensively).


Great players find a way to win...doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? Insanity.


Thanks for the slice of sanity, Kob.

I hope Kobe's high assist numbers is a sign of things to come.

One thing that doesn't work is Kobe driving, jumping and waiting for an open Howard, who is looking at the rim, waiting for the rebound. Perhaps, Kobe averaging 10 apg is a stretch, but if he could get 7-8 i think we'd be fine.

No shot here. Just the truth for all these years. If kobe passes and plays decoy, automatically an open teammate and an easier shot.

Back=handed BS is sour grapes, Kobe is not the point guard Al.
