According to @ESPNStatsInfo, Kobe’s 40 points in 79-77 loss to the Pacers last night is the 8th regular season game in which he scored at least half of his team’s points.
People…the Lakers are only 14 games in. That means Kobe is very literally carrying this team.
Kobe. Is. Scoring. Half. Of. The. Lakers. Points.
Lakers should hire someone whose sole task is to rekindle the relationship between Phil Jackson and the Lakers. D’Antoni can’t run this team and certainly can’t control Kobe.
