Thats the catch 22 with Kobe...seems like no one ever plays bad defense on him. Its always he is making tough shots.
These are the shots Kobe is picking...Pietrus is putting him off his spots, his contests are too slow and his disicipline is horrid. This is a great player making a mediocre player make mistakes
