Why does Kobe play so good the first few games of a season then drop off?
I remember last season Kobe had extremely efficient first few games, and for a week or so he was the second second in PER after lebron. But then he just dropped off from there and became normal kobe until he was eliminated from playoffs. This season kobe is again starting very efficient, but there's no doubt that his FG% will continue to drop until it's around 43%.
What's the cause of this? Can not kobe maintain efficiency for more than the first few games of a season?

27/6/4 on that efficiency. Damn.
But remember previous season? He scored 40+ for 4 consecutive games early in the season. At the end of the 4th 40+ game, he was a 32/6/5 guy. After that, aside from his ft% and 3p%, everything dropped remarkably.
