Default Kobe playing like crap!

2 for 10 with 3 fouls in the first half vs Nuggets.
I do not remember seeing Kobe play as poorly as he has today at least not since 1999.
Poor defence not agressive at all on offence shoting jumpers and passing to three point shoters but not really creating anything either!

I hope is realises shuts the hell up and only geta mad at himself at the half and SHOWES up to play for the second half!

Lamar and Pau are keepin the Lakers in the game

lol...he has 3 fouls what agressiveness do you expect of him?

He is not demanding the ball which allows pau and odom to have such good game.

its not important what game does kobe have. It is important that the Lakers win!

well like now in the fourth i blame kobes shot selection and poor play on Nuggets getting the lead down to 10 from 19. Kobe is 0-4 with dumb though shots instead of gettin the ball in the hands og Pau who has been playin great or Lamar

Lakers didn't seem to be disciplined at all
playing happy ball with not so great defense
I didn't really sense the usual playoff intensity in this one
lots of open shots here and there

hopefully something change
this style won't be getting us pass the 2nd round

kobe needs to keep shooting, even 3 pointers when he's cold...
because of who he is and how fast he can go from cold to hot if he keeps shooting the nuggets still have to cover him with one player and shdow him with another....
so even whe he's cold, kobe demands 40% of the nuggets attention on many plays. that allows guys like pau and odom to run rampent in the paint...
karl put kenyon on kobe, a good defensive move but it completly took and chance denver had of controlling the paint and threw it out the window, but if kobe had decided to just pass the ball because he was cold, martin would be switchd pretty quickly to the interior and pau would have had the type of easy looks he saw today....
now the nuggets have to figure out how to stop pau, odom and fisher and luke to some extent from tearing the interior apart at will knowing that kobe won't be cold forever....
the nuggets nightmare just begun, kobe was cold and they still were manhandled by the lakers

Pau and Lamar went off because Kobe was the focal point of Denver's defensive scheme. I mean, Denver's strategy for most of the game was to sic its starting power forward on him (and have a wing player shadow him on top of that)--thus completely opening up the inside for the Lakers' bigs. Kobe didn't play perfectly, but it's silly to think everyone else did well in spite of--and not because of--the attention that he draws.

Edit: Basically what the clone above me said.

lol people we won the game. Kobe still commanded double teams and had a good amount of hockey assists to make guys like pau and lamar have really good games.

Kobe had a bad shooting game yes, it happens, he'll come out better next game.

Yes, the important thing was that the Lakers won. But Kobe definetely had poor shot selection throughout the game. If your shots not going down, take it to the rack or set up your teammates.
