You guys are so over the top. All of Kobes ROUTINE Moves he does from all spots on teh floor requre/demand quick hard lateral movements. Crossover is no different in regards to amount of strain on his knees to the moves he does every single gm now. Would I say he doesnt use it as much as we would like to get the highlight reel vidz = Yes but to say he doesnt use it all is bullsheet. He does whatever is required at that specific moment on the court. Most guys can only do a couple different moves out there Kobe is a counter guy so it really depends on what the defense gives him. Only thing different from Kobe is the stamina = when he was #8 he could run all day even on 1 leg like when he gave MJ 45 in 1st half! Now Kobe gets tired and its yr 17 coming up so WTF you expect. The fact he still balling on High Level is ENOUGH for me Appreciate it b4 he is gone for good! We still get plenty of gr8 worthy highlight material after soon to be 4 different knee procedures and 2 handfuls of nagging small injuries!
Kobe is a very special player, but even Kobe cannot beat father time...the crossover is a move that puts extra pressure on the the knee, it is not a routine move. A young Kobe could crossover at will....Kobe is not 28 he is on the downside of his prime, he cannot do many of the quick lateral movement moves anymore....This thread is about Kobe and the crossover, not about the Kobe that can still dominate. Kobe has been an Iron man..several years back Kobe was being talked about as being injury prone, Kobe may be injury prone but that tough SOB has more heart and soul then the rest of the team combined! He does not miss games! Kobe is really KOBE!
a very special player...

NEARLY ALL MEN CAN STAND ADVERISTY, BUT IF YOU WANT TO TEST A MAN'S CHARACTER, GIVE HIM POWER.
