Kobe's numbers over the last three games are pretty much what I'd expect during the regular season.
If Kobe does play tonight, I'm interested to see how much lift he has on his jumpers on the second night of a back-to-back.
BTW: the Top 25 in my Respect Rating will be published later this week. (Kobe doesn't qualify; not enough mins last season)
Who would you want taking last shot in a game? Kevin Durant was first with 76.9%. Kobe Bryant and LeBron James were second with 7.7% each.
When asked who is the toughest player in the NBA, GMs went with Tony Allen (25.9%). Kobe Bryant was the runner up (11.1%).
FYI: Kobe received lots of votes for best two-guard & toughest player. Moral of story: anonymous GM's like Kobe better than anonymous agents
Nobody asked, but I'll play with Kobe.
Like I said last year, if the rest of humanity approached every task with Kobe's fervor, we'd have condos on the moon by now.
The Lakers will have their struggles, but I'm eager to see how Kobe handles the challenge at the end of a great career. Any compromises?
ESPN actually did Kobe a huge favor by puncturing that pus-filled boil before the regular season got started. Now maybe he can just play.
In regards to the Kobe talk today, ESPN and Sportscenter had a slow news day. Decided to go with a non-story. You can tell when they reach.
Lin would look to create for himself, others - Lakers had Kobe as a later in shot-clock option
Interesting watching Kobe/Lin play together - haven't looked closedly at it - but saw Kobe on left wing while Jeremy worked to create
