Poor shooting.
Poor shot selection.
Poor to mediocre defense.

Not much facilitating.


Too much one-on-one.


Just had to put that out there...

He was being guarded very tough.

He redeemed himself though - a HUGE clutch 3 when it counted.

That's why he is out there.

For clutch yeah. Unfortunately I missed the first half, so not sure what totally he did wrong...but still, he has to be out there. It's the presence that counts.

And again, attributing to tiredness.

Just being out there causes the defense to fluctuate.

I think it had to do with stats. We're playing so well that we don't need him to get 25 just to stay competitive, so he glances up at the scoreboard and sees he has like 12 or 13 points and he tries to get it to at least 20 or something.

I could care less if he does that if it's a blowout and he isn't hurting us.

Kobe had 20 points, led the team with 6 assists, had only 2 turnovers. Yes he shot 5-15, but he knocked down the big shot when it counted.

As for the end of your thread title:

I don't even know why he was out there for the most part

I don't know why you would think he shouldnt be out there.

It's amazing how the Lakers can play such a great game except for the 4th quarter for the most part, and Kobe will still get criticism.

How about poor Lakers teammate?
They never pass to Kobe throughout the first three quarter.
4th quarter comes, they just feed Kobe the ball in a bad position 40 feet away and expects him to bail them out.

Agreed with this being the worst game from Kobe in a while. Surprised only 2 TO. Some of his shots should be considered TO because of the awful shot selection. Good to see we can still beat the 2nd (or 3rd, or 4th, depending on who you ask) best team in the west when our superstar is having a bad day.

Posey guarding Kobe, isn't a good matchup for him

No player can be perfect all season...just one of those games, and it has to come with the 2nd of back to back, I'd take it with salt.

But he did what he's known to do, and we can be fortunate to have him there. If he didn't make that 3, we might not even be the least contented with a W now.

GC:

“I just wanted to shoot it in his face,” Bryant said of the late 3-pointer. “I knew I was due.”

The dramatic and deflating shot stemmed a frantic 17-4 Hornets run and put the Lakers ahead 86-80 with 1:08 to go.

“I knew Posey was going to sit on my arm, so I just had to back him up and try to shoot it,” Bryant explained. “I knew it was going to be a tough shot because I had Posey draped all over me, so I just needed to focus on the basket and try to put it in.”

No player is going to come out with their best game every game. He's entitled to his off nights, but like others have said, his biggest play was that 3 at the end. CP3's face after he hit that pretty much said it all, "damn..that's the MVP."

I wish I did it was as he was walking toward the bench, it was like he had given up.

CP gave up? We gave up consecutive baskets to him until he missed the above 2pt line jumpshot...:lol:
