Not hating on Dwight, but Kobe was more efficient tonight and did a good job setting up the offense. Hell, I'd say Pau had a better game than Dwight too.

Yes, Howard's FT shooting nearly cost them the game. Still doesn't mean he wasn't the more impactful player tonight, especially on defense. He had four blocks and altered a number of other shots at the rim.

Not saying Dwight was better by a mile or anything, but in my opinion he was their best player tonight. Kobe and Pau also had really solid games.

Default Re: Kobe is the best player on the Lakers, not Dwight.

Dwight is our anchor defensively, but Kobe is our best offensive weapon; this is clear as day. So far this season, Kobe has played like our best player regardless if Dwight is at 100% or not because Kobe is a far better & more consistent offensive threat.

Heck, Kobe has played like the best player on the planet so far this season.
Leading the league in scoring, shooting 50%+, 40%+ and 90%+...averaging 5 assists and 5 boards...he's been as good as anyone at the very least, in my opinion.

Dwight and Kobe are two of the five best players on the planet, only team in this league to have that PLUS Nash & Gasol? Insane.
Heck, MWP has looked pretty damn good this season as well.

97-04: Shaq

08-11: Pau, the real Finals MVP and league MVP
12: Bynum, Dwight

Am I right?

So I'm a "Kobe kid" just because I think Kobe had a better game tonight? Get real man.

Kobe also played great D on D-Will down the stretch and was the most impactful player by far on the offensive end. I'm sorry, but I just can't overlook Dwight's FT shooting.

No, you're a "Kobe kid" because you are obsessed with Kobe and always come to his rescue anytime someone tries to say he's not the best at something.

Tonight, though, that's fine. The gap between he and Howard wasn't that big, so I can see the case for Kobe.

Dwight's +/- was -4

Bryant's +/- was +20

Pretty sure there were stretches of the game where Dwight was the only starter on the floor with the shitty Lakers bench.

Kobe was pretty mediocre after the 1st quarter, IMO.
Why some people would pick Kobe tonight is because he hit some big free throws to seal the deal; Dwight was a big liability at the line.

Dwight had a great game though; 20 points, 15 boards & 4 blocks?
His poor free throws really hurt us from putting this team away earlier. I mean we shot below 40% I believe from the line and took 25+ free throws? If we shot 70%, we would have won by double digits tonight.
