You have to take the good with the bad......I think things have worked out perfectly all things considered. The energy that guys spend complaining about him would be much better spent on the guys who aren't doing a damn thing on our team.....and we have a ton of them!!!!!
If Kobe had better teammates or teammates who were playing up to their ability and were giving an all out effort, Kobe would trust them....who the hell can he trust on this team right now??? Mini-Mamba aka G-Lock???
Finally! We've met at the common ground. *sigh of relief*
Well, I personally felt that guys like Kapono, McRoberts, and Murphy were proven players. Kobe just has to trust his tools. He can't make the excuse that he doesn't have help anymore IMO.
