Maybe Kobe needs to give it to Metta World Peace more. Lol
Best case scenario going into the season for the Lakers was getting 3rd place in the western conference......where are they right now.....3rd place.
So you think that its better for him to shoot when he is double or even triple teamed at times? Because that is exactly what he is doing. It's not too hard to figure out that if there are 2 defenders on Kobe someone is left open, and that someone should get a pass for an open shot. And yes, Metta World Peace or Steve Blake can hit a wide open shot.. If lakers would move the rock more that would take a lot of pressure of Kobe and his % would go up
