Luker, you can call Kobe a POS teammate but he tries to make sure he gets the W every night unless its a blowout. Other then that he plays hard every night and he expects the same from his teammates.
My thing is... yall see how he acted last time yall involved him in trade talks.... why do it again???
I tried to defend Pau for his poor post-season in 2011 which I did. I tried to defend him in the 2011-2012 season even after trade deadline past.
But nowadays its getting hard to defend Pau. We have one of the best front courts on paper, there should be no reason why your 7ft and standing at the 3pt line or midrange if you prefer to play in the post. Steve Nash was supposed to make it easier for Pau, but since he's injured, Kobe has tried to get Pau easy looks at the basket, but Pau rather play like a bi*ch.
There's only so much more I can defend of dude... not to mention others but specifically Akademiks said it best.
Pau plays harder for Spain which they ain't paying him sh*t, then he does making $19 Mill a year for us.
It doesn't make sense.
