Kobe Bryant likes to prove his points in the playoffs, and he does not care if it means that the team goes home for the summer. He is the most vindictive bastard in the NBA and will make his team suffer because he feels slighted by the press. Tonight Kobe took only 3 shots in the entire second half and only scored 1 point off a technical shot. What an ass. I am only mad because I was forced to pick him in my playoff fantasy game and I thought he would fire away because with the Suns finally reaching their normal tempo, the Lakers pretty much had little chance playing an uptempo game.
We have seen it before. The Lakers take a loss when Shaq and Kobe are on the same team, a loss where Kobe takes a bunch of shots, and the media criticizes him. The next game Kobe comes in and takes not only less shots, but so few it leaves everyone scratching their head. There are only a couple explanations for this.
Point taken Kobe. Thank you. Go home.
