Kobe doent have to change, everyone else has to change. kobe is THE MAN and the team revolves around him. he's the most explosive offensive guard in history, and the best of his generation. he has greatly reduced his FGA in efforts to get his teamates involved. Appreciate it, dont hate it. there are too many instances where Kobe doesnt even touch the ball during a series and a volume shooter like him, needs touches and shots to be most effective. bynum needs to be a decoy, fisher and vlad rad need to be a decoy. Kobe is the same player now as when shaq was here, he's a human though and he hasnt put his full energy out there. wait till mid-season, I bet he will be in midseason form. And also kobe goes to 4 to 5 game slumps, where his shooting % drops, but he is still doing things, plus we only LOST 1 game at this point, and defense is the biggest reason we lost, and the BIG MAN battle, and D-fish was OFF as well.
Again - this team, as currently constructed won't make it out of the second round of the playoffs, let alone the West or win the Finals.---fido on 2011 Lakers
