I have been one of Kobe's biggest critics on this board but I must say, he has set aside his selfishness and decided to play with great mentality of trusting the system and more importantly his teammates. As I result, IMO, his teammates are gaining confidence and are "energized" to play better defense.
I don't know if theres a glitch in the stat line tho bec Kobe had a dubious record as the only Laker with a -6 in the +/- stat line for this game aside from registering 6 turnovers.
I heard on the radio around 2:30 pm pst from John Ireland that Kobe was there about 3 hrs before the game working on his shots.
Last but not the least, Kobe's shot selection has been really good IMO, driving hard instead of settling from beyond 22 feet.
