No, Kobe was the reason da sh*t was close and not a blowout. U give Pau and Bynum 20 shots against Jefferson and Milsap, they'll BOTH drop 40. Kobe chuckin up 31 shots and only makin 14 of em aint gon consistently win u games. Like dude said, Bynum BAILED dat n*gga out. Did u see dat awful a.ss shot over 3 n*ggas??? If Bynum doesn't tip dat in, then Kobe is gettin blamed for da loss instead of praised for da win. Yall Kobe stans k!ll me witchall dumbass logic, yall n*ggas remind of women........no sense at all

Did you watch the game at all?!?!

ive seen so much ignorance in this thread...its fu*king insane.

Relationships between NBA players and referees were generally all over the board — love, hate, and everything in-between. Some players, even very good ones, were targeted by referees and the league because they were too talented for their own good. Raja Bell, formerly of the Phoenix Suns and now a member of the Charlotte Bobcats, was one of those players. A defensive specialist throughout his career, Bell had a reputation for being a "star stopper." His defensive skills were so razor sharp that he could shut down a superstar, or at least make him work for his points. Kobe Bryant was often frustrated by Bell's tenacity on defense. Let's face it, no one completely shuts down a player of Kobe's caliber, but Bell could frustrate Kobe, take him out of his game, and interrupt his rhythm.

You would think that the NBA would love a guy who plays such great defense. Think again! Star stoppers hurt the promotion of marquee players. Fans don't pay high prices to see players like Raja Bell — they pay to see superstars like Kobe Bryant score 40 points. Basketball purists like to see good defense, but the NBA wants the big names to score big points.

If a player of Kobe's stature collides with the likes of Raja Bell, the call will almost always go for Kobe and against Bell. As part of our ongoing training and game preparation, NBA referees regularly receive game-action video tape from the league office. Over the years, I have reviewed many recorded hours of video involving Raja Bell. The footage I analyzed usually illustrated fouls being called against Bell, rarely for him. The message was subtle but clear — call fouls against the star stopper because he's hurting the game.

If Kobe Bryant had two fouls in the first or second quarter and went to the bench, one referee would tell the other two, "Kobe's got two fouls. Let's make sure that if we call a foul on him, it's an obvious foul, because otherwise he's gonna go back to the bench. If he is involved in a play where a foul is called, give the foul to another player."

Similarly, when games got physically rough, we would huddle up and agree to tighten the game up. So we started calling fouls on guys who didn't really matter — "ticky-tack" or "touch" fouls where one player just touched another but didn't really impede his progress. Under regular circumstances these wouldn't be fouls, but after a skirmish we wanted to regain control. We would never call these types of fouls on superstars, just on the average players who didn't have star status. It was important to keep the stars on the floor.

Kobe got gassed out(as well as the rest of the Lakers) for one. Started 11 for 19 with 31 points. Giving Raja the fu*king works. he ended 14 for 31 that's actually pretty good field goal percentage at the end of the day though. Acting like it's easy to go 14 for 31 from the field smh

Lets be real here

Kobe kept us in the game cause the two towers werent doing sh*t! How do you erase everything before that. How about the 3 or the fadeway. The fu*k you talking about B. Yeah, kobe forced a few shots but he is the reason we are winning so chill out dunny.
People will continue to overrate every around Kobe to knock what he's doing. Kobe shot a better percentage than both Gasol and Bynum. Gasol had two turnovers in OT and gave up 27 points to Millsap but nobody sees that. Bynum gets completely exhausted and can't help really fast, but nobody sees that either. Kobe's shooting got us a lead in the 1st and the bench unit(led by Bynum) gave up the lead and the momentum, same happened at the end of the 4th. And then this n*gga gon say Kobe went one on one at the end of regulation..is that not his job People just don't get it though.

wtf did u just say?

you look at the math dumbass.

it's AMAZING for a guard to shoot 50%, most guards shoot around 45

so 16/31 is higher than 50% and let's say he hits 2 3's, although that's a reach now a days, that's 34 points. u need at least 6 ft's to hit 40. and that's having an amazing game
I don't give a fu*k if he had an amazing game or not. The point is, what I have been saying is when you take that many shots you SHOULD score 40 points if you are a professional basketball player. You d!ckriders cheer for Kobe when he take that many shots but IF you're going to take that many shots you should be dropping 40 every game, I mean sh*t.

yea taking 31 shots is hard...

You Kobetards always come up with the dumbest sh*t in the world...

Iverson, Melo, Durant, Westbrook, D.Rose, D.Wade lets ask them how hard it is to put up 31 shots.. I bet you the answer 100% of the times will be, its EASY to put up 31 shots, but its hard to make 50% of them shots..

Idiots
I usually dont comment but thats about the dumbest post I have ever read on this site. You obviously have never played ball in your life, you are probably a fat lazy fu*k. You try running up and down the court, play defense and put up 30 shots, I bet you you will be throwing up airballs and bricks. f!ghting through screens, double teams, and putting up 30 pretty good shots is fu*kin hard. Play some ball in the Y or a league and come back and post you fu*kin retard

The truest quote... Its not easy to put up 31 shots playing against 5 world class athletes(Yes, i just called a starting five on any PRO team world class)

anyone shooting 31 shots should score 40? really?

that's shooting 20 out of 31, way higher than 50%, i know that's no 3's or ft's. so even 16 out of 31, is still higher than 50% and you may not get 40 shooting that
