Yeah thats what preseason games are for. Its an experimental phase for him now to see where he stands. Personally I'm expecting him to be more efficient and selective with his shots. He missed a very makable shots in the paint which might be explained by the heavy legs he had.

preseason.. lets wait till midseason too see

LeBron said he talked to Kobe just before training camp: "Just to say, ‘It’s great to have him back.’"

I have always dislike LeBron because the media hyped him ... Labeling him the chosen one and that kings ish.... Then the decision. I just never liked him. I will say this, he respects the game. That's the only compliment I'm giving him. Now where was I? F em!!!!

Kobes jumper looks better than ever.

I wonder if he can still dribble drive or attack off the dribble.

His jumper is too different than what we used to see from him. The whole release in new.

I will say this, he respects the game.

 

With all the flopping he does, I don't see how.

An article on Kobe "destroying" the franchise smh. http://espn.go.com/e...lakers-downfall

 

 

I can't help but roll my eyes at this.

 

 

I don't think Kobe Bryant is the cause fo the Lakers' "downfall," but it's just a cycle. Crazy to pin everything on him.

Really, if I were to blame one person it'd be David Stern, but lets ignore that detail entirely through a "blockbuster" piece.

 

I mean, sometimes teams just stop being good. Players age. Contracts eat up cap on the back end. Players sign elsewhere. Tendons tear.

 

Also, hilariously, the note that Kobe also nixed the Steve Nash trade? That would've been a good thing, ultimately.

 

Did Kobe alienate Dwight? Maybe. From everything we know they were oil and water from the get-go. None of that is Dwight's fault?

 

Anyway, the article will accomplish everything it sets out to do. Start a convo, gain traction and traffic, grab attention. Cool.

 

No mention of Dwight walking around with the stat sheet and demanding low-post touches, not MDA's P&R system.

 

@DrewGarrisonSBN people forget that even Nash called out Dwight in a a tactful way during the season.

 

I'm not blaming Dwight or Kobe, but this whole thing is tired and the re-hash is pointless. Didn't work, and it wasn't surprising.

 

Article presents itself as "Is Kobe the reason for the Lakers downfall?" and is written without intention of finding an answer or exploring

 

Article is written with clear self-answered question and message in hand, no intention of considering alternatives. No objectivity.

 

Pile on, it really doesn't matter. Lack of cap space and talent, poor coaching, trades not working, broken chemistry, injuries. Kobe's fault

 

I guess it is Kobe's fault David Stern vetod the trade, ultimately. Couldn't let CP3 play with him, no super teams.

 

In lighter news, I expect Kobe to go into a full Hit Em Up rant next time ESPN is brought up.

Henry Abbot is another piece of [expletive] Kobe-hater that works for ESPN. Not the first time he's spoken or written negatively about Kobe.

Care less about what Henry Abbot has to say, there's more important things.  

Like Kareem writing an article grading the new mystery and crime mini-series  :P

Much more worth checking out.

I'm not going to lie, the end of the PHO game had me way more excited than a normal preseason game. To see Kobe just hit ridiculous shot after shot in regulation really gave me a little chill through my back. The confidence Laker fans have in Kobe at the end of the game might not be comparable to any other great and fanbase.
