Ok Kobe, You Got this? What most of the whole Lakers roster, even coach Mike Brown is asking Kobe. It seems Kobe's load is heavier than ever to start the playoffs. Sure, he has Ramon Sessions, who he even says, relieves him alot, but he's a new comer to the Lakers, he can't be the number 2 guy that's going to step up, especially since the intensity level of the playoffs is 5 times higher than the regular season. Before, Kobe didn't always had to be the go to guy, he had Derek Fisher on his team, who made the big shot when needed. He had Gasol at Center, and Odom at forward. No Odom, no Fisher, two of the main people who knew how Kobe ran offense when he was on the court. Crazy. Gasol was at Center, now Bynum is back. Some one who was out for two championship seasons due to injury. Someone who forgot how Kobe and the Lakers offense now, someone who is going to take even longer with the New coach's system. Sure, he's been a Laker his whole career. Sure, he's been in the league 7 seasons, but due to injury he has only played an estimate of 4 and a half seasons under Phil Jackson, someone who's system he was semi-used to. Now, a whole new coach brings a whole new style, is it because of Jackson, or Bynum's desire to want to win the reason he has excelled because of late. 5 30+ games this season, when before coming in only had 1 of his career. Also, the trade/upgrade from Ariza to the then Artest earned the Lakers another championship, but what does Artest have to show for it now. They got Ron Metta World Peace Artest, so they can be contenders down the stretch, but he wanted to relapse and go back to the stupidness he was on before, which got him suspended. Bynum, Artest, you guys need to be consistent in order to win. You can't do good and be proud of that. In order for the Lakers to be a consistent championship team, they have to have consistent players. Sure they have Kobe right now, but the guy's 33, he can't do it forever. Think about it, do you want to rely on Kobe for more rings, or can you do it without him. You have to be good down the stretch. Bynum, you can't be yelling at the other teams bench and at the ref, getting kicked out games when the team needs you. and Artest, you can't be elbowing people getting suspended from games when the team needs you. If you guys want to have rings. You need to stop taking the immaturity pills you guys are taken, and play smart.
