How do the Lakers lose focus so often?

It was brought up in an article (I'm sure many of them), that the Lakers can be swimming along, do well, and then completely go away from what works. It's maddening.

Kobe was electric in game four, sinking everything, and the game was even after the third quarter. Yet, in the fourth, he hardly touched the ball and the threes began being launched again.

Why?

Why do they seem to lose their path so often?

Why do the Lakers stop doing what is obviously working?

Why does Phil just sit there and let it happen?

After watching this happen all year, and part of last year, I'm at a loss to explain it. I know it's the true Lakers identity and that's bothersome. I also know it's unlikely to change with the roster as it sits now That's worse.

What adds to this gurgling in my stomach is that the Lakers's finances are such that they're unlikely to pick up anybody who can come in and change the culture, the locker room. We need a fast and nasty PG who can play D and hit a shot or two. We need 2-3 decent reserves, decent (great isn't necessary) shooters who move the ball and defend.

Think we're going to get them?

Think we're going to be able to trade any of our bench players for who I've described?

Like all Lakers' fans, I hope they'll snap out of it, enough so that they'll grab another ring, but it's increasingly frustrating.
