Pete, do you think there is any chance the Lakers could actually make the playoffs with Kobe. I find that almost impossible to believe unless the top 9 teams have injuries. Wouldnt it be smart to let Kobe sit out as long as possible and clearly be 100% and set the team up for a potential Lottery pick?
imo, some of this teams loses were in the 4th quarter, and the games were close. we lack somebody like kobe who can take over in the 4th. the games that we have won in the 4th quarter, me moved the ball well around and hit 3s like crazy, and that just aint gonna happen every game.
if this team can keep up this kind of chemistry while kobe is on the court, i dont see why we cant make the playoffs.
The Lakers would need to pass 2 of those teams. I just dont see it even with Kobe.
