What We’ve Learned Without Kobe

Be honest, when the Lakers were inbounding the ball down 86-87 with 2.2 seconds left, this thought absolutely crossed your mind: “Man, I wish Kobe was here right now” (unless you were rooting for Boston, then it went something like this: “Thank you God that Kobe Bryant is not in the building”). That is no knock on D Fish, it would be no surprise to see him hit the game winner. Most of his big shots, however, are catch and shoot. He’s not usually one to create something on his own, as evidenced by the no-way-this-is-going-in-uncomfortable-leaning-air-ball he tossed up to end the game against Boston.

Next: You think Kobe would have got a better look? Me too.
