Default Kobe is the best player on this 2012-13 Lakers team

It's not Dwight, it's Kobe.

It looked like Dwight is still not close to being 100%. I expect him to play a huge role for the Lakers but for me, it will always be Kobe's team.

Imagine if Kobe was a player who historically starts off hot every season and cools down as the season progresses. Oh, wait.....

There really is no "best" as of right now. It's 1a/1b. One game it's going to be Dwight, and another game it's going to be Kobe. The last 2 games are clear examples of this.

This.

Dwight isn't even hundred percent right now.

Then he would have certainly never won a championship. Oh, wait....

Thought Dwight was their best player in last night's loss, but Kobe outplayed him tonight. Still, Dwight is nowhere near 100%. Bill Simmons said he looks like he's at about 70%, which may be a little too much, but Howard is clearly not close to 100%. I know Kobe isn't either, but he's a lot closer than Dwight in my opinion. Last night Dwight was the focal point of the offense, was getting swarmed and mugged all night, and finished with 33-15-5 and went 15/19 from the FT line. Last night he was "clearly" the best player on the team. It was more-or-less a wash in the Dallas game. Dwight's horrific 3/14 FT shooting night might give Kobe the nod, but Dwight finished with 19 and 10 on 8/12 shooting and drew a ton of attention almost every time he caught the ball inside.

I will say, though, I didn't see Kobe starting off averaging 30.7 PPG on 61% shooting in the first three games. That's VERY impressive.

But really, who gives a shit? The Lakers are 0-3. Does it really matter if Kobe is better than Dwight or the other way around?

And people say "Kobe is done." Lakers need to get their team defense going. Other wise, they're ****ed.

Or I could've just said this.

30 points per game on 60% shooting.

This is the most efficient start since 2008-09 (before he had his finger injury)
