“I love Kobe so much, I don’t want to watch him play”

I love Kobe so much, I don’t want to watch him play.” That’s what Shane always said last year when we got to watch Kobe and the gang rest. This year, it’s even more beautiful to watch our entire starting lineup wrap their legs in ice and conserve energy for the stretch run. But I came across some interesting statistics on just how much rest Kobe is actually getting:

  • Kobe has not played in 11 4th quarters this season!!!
  • That equals out to be 132 minutes, or 2.75 games.

Ironically, he is scoring at a great clip than both LeBron or Wade as well:

—–minutes/gamePPG———-PPM————–PP48
Kobe ——-36.3———-28.1—–0.774104683—–37.15702479
Lebron—–37.4———-28.5—–0.762032086—–36.57754011
Wade——-38.3———-29.3—–0.765013055—–36.72062663

Great stuff! This will pay off come playoff time!

    I hope all the Lebron dyckriders can see this.

    Kobe is more efficient, in less minutes.

    Right. Because it’s not like the amount of minutes Peirce and Allen are playing aren’t a concern for Boston.

    It will that much more sweet knowing people like you are around when we mop the floor with your blood.

    You want to know how I know you’re gay, you like the Boston Suckdics

    I love it, non-Laker fans call the Lakers the Fakers, (such a lame name), Nothing is a better nickname for a team than the Suckdics. HA HA HA

    Hey joseph, how would you like my nice, long dick in your mouth?

    And Joeseph, look what Boston fans are saying about your loss today:

    “Orlando should have blow the Celtics out. In fact, I wish they would have… this way Ray and Paul wouldn’t have played 45 minutes apiece.”

    So again, make sure to beat the Cavs come playoffs time. I wouldn’t want your C’s to be gassed out by then.
