ICYMI: Byron Scott says he would love for Kevin Durant to play with Kobe Bryant after Durant’s recent comments. lakersnation.com/byron-scott-on…

Sean Highkin

Obviously Rondo misses a point-blank layup. Got the Kobe assist tho

John Ireland

finish with either no Spurs or no Mavs. Klay/Conley don't get in. Here's my guess: Kobe, Curry, Blake, Durant, M. Gasol(voted in) (2/3)

Gary Lee

Kobe Bryant talked about fatigue, loss to the Thunder without Kevin Durant and Rajon Rondo being traded to the Mavs. lakersnation.com/video-kobe-tal…

Bernie Lee

Strangest dleague thing to me is the LA team using the Lakers girls, equal to Kobe playing Defender games just to spruce things up no?

Bill Simmons

I've enjoyed watching Kobe in ESPN Classic mode. It's certainly more compelling than your typical lottery team. But he's not playing well.

Erik Gundersen

LA and Dame are out here Shaq and Kobe-ing these guys the last two games. Blazers up 29.

Bill Simmons

Kobe is one of 3 players to average 22 FGA while shooting less than 38%. The others: Joe Fulks & Max Zaslofsky. basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl…

Bill Simmons

Right now, Kobe is the 2nd player to average 24.5 PPG while shooting less than 38%. The other: Joe Fulks... in 1947. basketball-reference.com/play-index/psl…

Erik Gundersen

Kobe Kaman going to work tonight.

Kobe on Rajon Rondo deal (via @Baxter Holmes): "It obviously makes them a much, much better team." es.pn/1AGa7Ld

Kurt Helin

I'm surprised now when teams double Kobe at the elbow or along the baseline like the Thunder did. That opens up LA's spacing, offense.

Ryan Ward

Kobe Bryant on fatigue: “I did not have my legs tonight. It’s frustrating & I have to figure it out.”

Ryan Ward

Kobe Bryant: “It was the shot I wanted to get. I was trying to figure out if I had time to draw contact. It just threw me off a little bit.”

Royce Young

Great stat via a DT commenter: This was the first time in Kobe's career he was held under 10 points when taking 15 or more shots.

Mark Medina

Byron Scott on going to Kobe Bryant over Jeremy Lin on last shot :"32,000 plus points."

Arash Markazi

Interesting numbers on Kobe Bryant from Friday night's game via @ESPNStatsInfo. http://t.co/xCUPvvGHPM

Baxter Holmes

Are @Dallas Mavericks title contenders w/ @Rajon Rondo? Kobe: “Yeah, probably...I’ll refrain from saying something nice because of @Mark Cuban."

Mark Medina

Byron Scott sensed that Kobe may have done too much work in Wednesday's practice. Kobe's take: "Maybe. It's a balancing act."

Mark Medina

Kobe Bryant: "I didn't have my legs. It's pretty frustrating. I have to figure it out." He said he still liked his look on last shot

Baxter Holmes

Andre Roberson contested every one of Kobe's jumpers, including the 17-footer that Kobe missed with the Lakers down by one as time expired.

Paul Garcia

Yes. RT @Baxter Holmes: Jeremy Lin on Kobe's final shot: "I like game-winners too. I would like to shoot some. But I get it."

Royce Young

I just totally realized that on top of playing some fantastic individual defense, Andre Roberson outscored Kobe 10-9 tonight.

Mark Medina

Jeremy said he respects/understands Kobe taking last shot:"That's coach's call. [Kobe's] going to hit many of those shots"

Royce Young

Westbrook and Reggie Jackson combined for 56 points and 15 assists as OKC survived a Kobe miss -- recap and notes: dailythunder.com/2014/12/down-k…

Sean Highkin

He's the king of taking them, yes. RT @SerenaWinters: Jeremy Lin ... said Kobe is" king of game winners."

Mike Trudell

Kobe's understandably frustrated having to pace and figure out his body like this in Year 19. Tough to know how much/little to practice.
