Thank you Steve (call me Alex ) Blake.
Blake has now replaced Walton as my least favorite player on the team. Im also not very fond of Sessions, I still think we need to upgrade the PG position.
I think the team just plays less aggressive when Kobe is on the court as if they don't want to eff up. That's where a guy like Fisher is missed. It just seems like they play looser without Kobe on the court.
Take Artest. His career stats don't show he's a top level player but he's a guy who needs to be the focus on offense and only then he can give you top offensive player type numbers. Make him 2nd or 3rd and he really declines.
Barnes: dude is all about freestyle and letting loose but it seems that he values shots more when Kobe plays.
I think Kobe needs to find a common ground and get his teammates involved more not so much to the point where he just sits back and doesn't get involved in the scoring but somewhere where the offensive play is a little looser. That's the personality of guys like Barnes, Artest, and Bynum. They like that freestyle kind of play but somewhat organized but not so much thinking.
Meh, who knows.
