Aldridge asked Kobe if he anticipated having to guard point guards in the postseason, citing Deron Williams and Chris Paul in particular, and I found Bryant’s answer pretty interesting (as well as the question): “It all depends, really. I’m up for it if that’s what works best for us … But we mostly use myself and Trevor (Ariza) as roamers - like free safeties. For example, if there’s a non shooter in the game, or even if it is a shooter and a guy’s really hurting us, I can roam around and be disruptive to what he’s doing, and then get back to my guy. That’s what we do a lot of times, because if you’re guarding a main guy, they’re going to set picks for him anyway. They’re going to get you off him, and he’s going to be attacking a big, so if you’re on the weak side, you might as well just come and help out.”
