I kind of agree. His shot selection is a.ss anymore. Two seven footers and he doesn't want to dump the ball inside but says guys like Pau need to be more aggressive, missed me with that one Mamba. The problem is when he does go into the Matrix (which he still happens fairly often) and bails us out everything gets forgotten. Me and my brother were talking about how we'd rather have a shooting guard that at least attempts to get the bigs involved as opposed to this aging Kobe.

Add that ridiculous contract into the mix combined with Jim Buss wanting to keep salary down and you have a bunch of first and second round exits for the remainder of the Kobe era.

Its the point gaurd's job to distribute the ball. Sessions needed to run the offense and stop differing to Kobe. Pau Gasol is way to passive. If he had heart like Kobe then he would be a great player. The only player Kobe could trust is Bynum but its easy to double-team a big when there are no shooting threats on the floor.

I agree that Kobe gets carried away shooting sometimes but if he had players he trusted then Im sure he'd pass more. and according to Soda pop's stats Kobe averaged 1.1 more a.ssists a game than Jordan the basketball god.

That's why I said that I only partially agree. Kobe is who he is and he's not going to change. You need an exceptional set up guy who is going to get everyone their shots which Sessions was not. With the way this team is currently built we need an elite PG.

What exactly does that mean? I've seen ppl say that for at least a year, maybe a couple of years and never understood it.

Does he mean that he made the first page of the thread or does he mean the thread is being promoted on the home page?

for the next 2 years, kobe is the biggest impediment to the lakers winning a title. and it's not just 'kobe haters' thinking this.

from a lakers' blog:



lakers won't win a title between now and 2014 ... but not b/c of kobe's ability. in fact he can probably play out the string as one of the three best players in the league.

no, the lakers will not contend for title b/c he makes $30 MILLION A YEAR. LA can't trade him nor would any team with prospects for winning actually trade for him. the lakers cannot realistically field a title winning product based solely on the fact that their best player's salary prevents it.

the lakers will go on w/ kobe, sell tickets and jerseys the whole goddamn way. just stop believing the next two years are anything more than a farewell sideshow.

We not trading Kobe, It's called business sense. Lakers fans who go to the game are fickle. And no Kobe= Lots of money lost in the seats.. Not to mention we damn near made it our first year with a new coach and completely new system.

My Lakers not stupid to trade Kobe. and the only team that would make the trade if it came down to it is the Knicks. but we know they're known for losing So that's not going to happen

The Lakers can't trade Kobe without his consent anyway.

Lotta intresting points in this article.... I'm a Lakers fan, always have respected and watched kobe since his arrival in LA... Here's my opinion, one he makes too much is a fact... We could attract better future players to the Lakers with a marginal paycut. Two, ask me at 34 if i would take a paycut knowing damn well im worth triple that to a business, my answer is never... With Gasols Minimal worth and the free agent market they can bring in the talent, pay the luxury tax on kobe jerseys sales alone.... Truth is as a business do u ride him into the sunset and maybe pay too much for other aging parts to make a run these next few years or do u wait? tough choice when Kobe has the Lakers by the balls 30mil next two years and a no trade clause is hitler-like. Respect his game and what he's done on the court. Respect whatever way the lakers go, its going to be an intresting two years... 5 championships for my favorite player durning my teens and early 20's?! I'll take it and wait a few years if i have to. I'm a Bucs fan sooo waiting is all ive done....
