I would say Kobe has a 3-7 bad defensive games and at least 3 of them was when his health was compromised.
Dwight was actually posted up against by Nene in the main stages of that game. But whatever.
I know one thing, we are a better defensive team when Kobe is out there. Other than Dwight, ne one person makes more of a difference on that end. Our backcourt gets picked on without kobe. Meeks is a hustle defender, undersized like Sasha. More of a irritant than anything else.
