I know you guys all read what Pau Gasol, MWP, and Dwight Howard had to say about Kobe going for 47.

 

They were irked out that he went for 47 points instead of playing team ball. The sad truth is that none of our bench players can hit their god damn threes. It's god damn obvious by now what our problems are that we live and die by the 3. Dwight wants to play in and out. I'm sure opposing teams strip Howard 5 times a game in the post when he makes a move... But anyway, how the hell do you play in and out if none of our players are hitting the 3 consistently?

 

Gasol wanted the ball to be moved around. How the hell do you move the ball around if only until recently you decide to be aggressive and find your spots? If only recently you decide to run P&R with Kobe? Kobe backed this guy from the beginning of the season till now. Gasol and Howard both had 20+ point games, what more would they want?

 

MWP... I have nothing to say. Sucked all year and complaining about Kobe.  Just shut up Ron.

 

Friday is yet another MUST WIN GAME. Anyone remember the 06-07 playoffs where Kobe quit on the team during game 7? I'm sure Kobe doesn't give a [expletive] what his teammates have to say, but without him we wouldn't even be here. So if he decides to send a message to the team on Friday and not score, it WILL cost us.

I dont know how you get that. I listen to the interviews and I doesn't seem like they are calling out Kobe that much.  And I am always defending Kobe. They do know that they need to step up. Kobe is always been the guy who always steps up and the know that Kobe will go off for big numbers ONLY if he realized his team not making shots. I dont think there is any "irked" about Kobe shooting too much and "not pass the ball." because they know how important it is to stick together and not add more drama to an already filled drama season.

 

You are just over reacting


MDA is an offensive genius. I hope he sticks to his guns and keeps doing what he does best: Run and Gun. That's the only way to coach.

I don't think they were calling him out. They were asked about it, and they said its amazing but they'd like more ball movement. So would I, so should you.

Let's be real, 34 year old Kobe ain't carrying this team on his back against the likes of OKC. He NEEDS Dwight to be dominant and Pau to be more aggressive.

That being said Dwight needs to demand the ball. I can't remember who it was, but I remember a former center saying if he wasn't getting the ball and playing inside out, he would post up in the paint and get a 3 seconds called on him to get the message across. Kinda like goaltending a shot just to make your presence known. I'm not saying I approve of those tactics, but you gotta do what you gotta do, it could help in the big picture.

Kobe isn't just going to give you the ball, you have to be aggressive and show him that you want it as much as he does, then he'll be a willing passer. He had no problem passing to Shaq, and even Bynum when he was healthy, because those guys demanded the ball and went to work on the low block every time, either aggressively looking for their own shot or setting up a teammate by sucking in the defense.

Remember when Bynum was posting up and they weren't giving it to him, so he yelled "Give me the [expletive]ing ball!" So loud that it was audible on tv? And that was a 20-year old Andrew Bynum who had not proven anything yet.

So I agree with Pau and Dwight and Metta, but they need to take it upon themselves to be aggressive and force this team to play inside out, because if they do, Kobe will happily give it up. Otherwise, he's gonna be on his own.

All he said was Kobe had a great ball game but he likes to see more ball movement which is right. We can't expect Kobe to do this all the time for us to get a win.You see how much more the whole team is into the game when we are moving the ball. Sometime this Kobe ISO looks terrible.

Pau was the only one who had something to say and it wasn't THAt bad. 

 

Dwight never says nothing about Kobe, he doesn't have to.

 

 

Metta said something like "who said that" in regards to Pau's comments

I heard Pau said a lot of bad things about Kobe in spanish for the spanish radio station.  He was like puto this and juevos that and pandejo all over the place.  It was crazy!!

You should be a reporter for espn. You are pretty good at blowing things out of proportion.
