Kobe Bryant’s Minutes Continue to Climb along with Shooting Woes

After Kobe Bryant shot a fairly atrocious 3-21 on Saturday afternoon against the New Orleans Hornets, a lot of questions began to arise concerning his increased minutes this season and how that may be affecting his shooting lately. Even though Bryant was able to come through with the game-winner, his increased workload does seem to be taking its toll on him.

Here’s a look at the minutes Bryant has been logging this season, and how it compares to his field goal percentage. As the season has progressed, as well as his minutes, his shooting percentage has gone down. Take a look at the graph below to see the trending lines for both minutes and FG%. As you can see, both seem to be headed the wrong way.

This creates quite a dilemma for coach Mike Brown. Since every win is important for the standings, one would think the team needs Bryant on the floor as much as possible. But if it’s clearly having a negative impact on his game – which it appears to be – is it worth keeping him out there?
