suns vs. lakers?

Well the series is pretty much over unless the lakers can win 3 games in a row. well its not impossible if Kobe takes control.. who thinks Kobe needs to start taking more shots and leading the lakers more than just trusting his team mates. well he has to play with them but who thinks he should take more shots and if the lakers are losing he should start taking over and forget about being a team player and he should just be the NBA star that he is???

    Kobe does need to take more shots. If the Lakers shoot 60 shots in a game, 25-30 of those need to be Kobe's shots. He can make a jump shot even when closely guarded.

    That being said, the Lakers will not win the next game. They will lose in Phoenix because the Suns are a complete team, and that will always beat a single player acting alone.

    Game 4 was a perfect example of how Kobe can't depend on his teammates much. Even though Kobe almost quietly reached the triple double mark (31 pts, 9 assists, 7 reb), the Lakers lose.

    He needs to just take over and shoot. The Lakers are an overachieving team thanks to Kobe but it's going to come to an end Game 5.

    To all the wishfuls, KG won't be coming to the Lakers no matter how much the media shoves it in your face. Jermaine O'Neal has a better chance than KG but even that is a far cry because Lakers management wants to keep Bynum and any trade happening will have to include Lamar Odom because of the salary cap. You can count on Odom and Bynum being back and the Lakers making NO moves during the offseason. Expect another round 1 exit next year.

    What do you mean, "who thinks Kobe needs to start taking more shots and leading the lakers more than just trusting his team mates."? Kobe DOES take practically all the shots! Besides, being a leader isn't about taking all the shots, it's about bringing the best out of your teammates. If Kobe takes anymore shots than he already does then he'd literally be the ONLY Laker shooting the ball! Give it a rest, Kobe fans- he isn't the "great one" you all thought he was...

  • Kobe can't win no matter what. If he shoots too much he's a ball hog. If he doesn't shoot enough then he's a cry baby. He just doesn't seem to know when to shoot and when to pass. He can't make his teammates better because they aren't that good to begin with. Everyone has potential but you must have a weapon in the middle and Kobe ran him off. Kobe needs to shoot more because that's what he has to do. He wanted this situation when he ran Shaq off. He made his bed, got paid, so lie in it. Let's see: since Shaq left he's missed the playoffs, lost a 3-1 series lead in the 1st round and got eliminated, about to get eliminated again in the 1st round this year, and Shaq won a ring without him. Also, he lost Robert Horry and Derrick Fisher because they'd rather play with Shaq. Well at least he has the All-Star MVP to fall back on.

    Kobe will have to score 80 point for the lakers to win that does not say much about his teammates but that's the only way the lakers will win this game.But next year we might get KG.

    Well, if Kobe leads the game, then they will still get NAILED hard and BIG time by the Phoenix Suns. Then, Kobe will get a new job as a soccor player.

    i thought everyone wanted kobe to be a team player, now that he is being one people are asking him to take over games, people should stop criticizing

    but yeah kobe just needs to be the NBA SUPERSTAR that he is.....

  • 1 decade ago

    kobe's teammates suck, they can't do anything. they can't shoot, rebound, or pass, hell they can't even catch. as sad as it is for me to say this as i am a lakers' fan they will lose badly the next game. by 20 or 30 points. kobe has to take control but can he handle the pressure? the reason kobe has to ball hog is because well his teammates suck. the lakers need to keep kobe, dump their roster and rebuild. this season for them is over.
