man I hate and him and skip bayless
The reason the Lakers lost to the thunder last year was because they were inferior but I agree that Kobe (mr. never really been clutch but I just shoot the ball a lot so i'll make em every once in a while) did mess with their chemistry late in the games. Still, that's been his MO and sometimes, because of how good he is, they are fine for it. I don't think I would have ever been a Kobe fan anyway but if his fans weren't so deluded, I think I might like him a little more. He's an incredibly skilled offensive player, he's just got the decision making of a straight tard.
