The Kobe Bryant pendulum sometimes swings too far, and Coach Phil Jackson always hopes it swings back.
Jackson criticizes Bryant from time to time for distorting the Lakers' offense by taking shots that are too quick or too many in number. Wednesday night was one of those times.
Bryant hit a crucial three-point shot with 1:08 to play to help the Lakers escape with a 93-86 victory over New Orleans, but Jackson didn't like Bryant's fourth quarter.
"He was doing too much at the end of the ball game," Jackson said. "We should have had him off ball a few times so it wasn't always him on ball. But he came though with the big shot that kind of clinched it."
Bryant finished with 20 points on five-for-15 shooting.

I agree with Phil. But Kobe may also have seen one posey too much.
