I don't think ppl are blaming Kobe for everything. If anything, I think too much blame was placed on Dwight last year. Kobe has to share the load on offense and at times accept a lesser role if required, IMHO.
I'm talking about people who don't like the lakers blaming Kobe for anything they can, such as Dwight leaving when it appears it was about the coach.
Kobe will have to take a lesser role on offense as he gets older, I'm just not sure Dwight was the person to surrender the role too. I live Dwight on defense, but on offense, he's sort of a mess. He holds the ball too low and gets stripped often, he he doesn't have much of an ability to score unless he's fed dunks/layups. This is all after 8 years in the league. I'm not sure any of that improves at this point.
