Default Lakers are now 1-9 when Kobe scores 30 or more

I'm not saying Kobe should do the extreme opposite and just attempt 5 shots a game. All I'm saying is he should try to involve his teammates more on offense so they don't get disinterested offensively and defensively.

I watched some of those losses and I dunno why Kobe can't seem to grasp sometimes. You can be agressive but you can't play like you gonna jack it everytime. At some point you have to move the ball around. He should not be leading the league in scoring at this point. Hopefully he does not do this when Nash gets back. He should let Nash just run the team and him picking his spots.

Right now the biggest problem is the defense. Everybody seem to be late on rotating, a lot of miscommunication. They are getting drilled on dribble penetration. Also Kobe need to stay off playing the passing lanes and stay with his man.

please watch the games.

Lakers shoot 15-28 last night from 3 point, CD had 11 assists at the PG.

@OKC Kobe had 35 points on 50% and 7 assists, still lost.

NO defense.

Kobe's player scored 7 points last night, Utah scored 54 in the paint.

He shouldn't be leading the league in scoring at this point?



The only argument for this argument is if you think fewer shots equates to him playing harder defense. Offensively, he has been terrific. He's moving the ball, helping play point when Morris is on the floor. He's been great. The defense has been bad and his defense hasn't been bad, but it's been subpar.


Dwight Howard has been disappointing...as a defender. His rebounding isn't yet up to his standard (must be because of Gasol) but it's strong and getting stronger. His defense in the paint hasn't happened yet. Even when he turns that on and gets into Dwight mode on defense (he will) he just can't win DPOTY this year...that's how off he's been so far.

Everything is just for show. They just want the media to see them as the underdogs.

They aint going nowhere in the playoffs though. Thunder or Grizzys >

Lakers are also 1-9 when I watch the game on my iphone as opposed to the 360. Both stats have about the same amount of relevance..

Well then the better question would be, why are they only 1-9 when he scores 30+?

Lakers are 70% wining team for his career when he score 30+ or 40+, so the problem is somewhere else.
