Kobe 1-10 in the 4th...at some fucking point, being such a smart player that he is, he should try to work some give and go, some pick and roll for a lob to Andrew or something.
The Lakers only won in Denver because after he went 7-23, Kobe at least knew to stop and worked something inside with the big guys.
Yeah yeah I know the Lakers fucking would be like 9-16 without Kobe but fuck, when you don't have it, you gotta know when to fucking stop shooting.
A scorer’s mentality is the next shot is going in…Kobe, and great scorers like him don’t know, or better said, think he doesn’t have it “going”. He doesn’t think the next shot isn’t going in. If he had it going in the first half, why would he believe that he couldn’t get it going in the 2nd half? He can go and hit 8 straight as easy as he misses 8 straight. His job is to score. Its easy for you guys to criticize AFTER the game when you see the results, playing Monday Morning Quarterback. There is no such thing as a scorer KNOWING he is not on or that him being able to predict that he is going to go 1 for 10 in a quarter, unless they are hurt or sick. That thought should not even enter your mind.
