Is Kobe coasting?

And yet I believe he's doing this purposely to conserve energy for the finales.
And the funny thing is, he's still putting up amazing numbers.
25 pts, 5 reb, 4 assists, and shooting 48% from the field.
I'm actually glad Kobe seems to be pacing himself really well this year.

But if he has slowed down at all, which I don't really think he has, I don't think he would be doing it to "conserve energy". Kobe is the kind of guy that comes out and plays with his all every night, because he loves the game and he wants to win.
He's not the kind to hold back at all for anything. Also I don't think he is taking getting to the Finals for granted, he knows that he has to work hard to get back there, and that anything can happen in this game.

It's as if he knows he has his MVP, and now he can let his teammates do the equal amount of lifting.

United we stand. Divided we fall.

Then when we need him - he has been there almost always. Even in the Indy loss he hit a big J around 50 seconds left in the 4th to put us up by 1. And games like New Orleans and Dallas... he takes over and you can see the increase in intensity. Either way, I want him to conserve as much energy as possible. The dude has played incredible amounts of hoop over the past year and a half. It's amazing.

“It’s obviously important to have homecourt advantage, so we look at it as a challenge to achieve that goal,” Bryant said. “Obviously we have a long way to go. It’s a great opportunity. We have quite a few home games here, so we look forward to trying to stretch this out a little bit. We have plenty more gears to go to. Plenty more. I haven’t even played in third gear yet.”

Haha, Kobe is coasting at 25/5/4. That's like saying I'm coasting down the highway at 110 MPH.
But it does make sense when Kobe would be compared to that Lambo I'm coasting in.
I feel bad for the teams that piss him off.
I think Boston is in for a nightmare...the city..and the team.

we don't really need him to kick it into 3rd or 4th gear til sometimes in the next month :lol:
February AND March...please kick into 3rd gear and shift to 4th when you can. Those 2 are one hell of road games to play in.

I'd be mad if this was a few weeks ago when we were playing poorly, but he's playing well right now so I have no complaints. I'll believe this "gear" thing when I see it though. But for now as long as he continues playing in whatever gear he is currently in, I can patiently wait for whatever future gear he will go into.
