Your two sentences contradict. No way he could wrap #1 by the end of next season.

Even he realizes he will not be able to score 8000 points in a season and a half.

Seeing what he's done the past 2 years it's kinda hard to not consider Kobe the worst "good" player ever.  Just no desire to win, and so scared to win because of somebody other than him.  We're so lucky to be Boston fans, KG would trade all of his 20,000, 10,000, 5000, 1500, 1500 honors and his MVP for another ring.

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale

Kobe will never quit , he is addicted to BB , and while more rings are possible for a few years , padding ones stats isn't out of the question.

and Gasol should punch him in the face for criticizing him in public.

That's the problem.  He's not even the best player on his team, why's he still acting like he's the best in the league?  If he TRULY wanted to win he would've adjusted like KG and Pierce did.  If he was still on the 06 Lakers his play might be excusable, but now he's got 2 players capable of bringing the team to the top of the conference and doesn't care.

Even before this year I would cringe when I looked at the Lakers boxscores and Bynum and Gasol would have single digit shot attempts and Kobe took 28 shots.  And it's fairly predictable to guess the outcome of a Lakers game just by looking at the shot distribution.

He could let Nash make it so much easier for him, but I'm sure he won't let that happen.

I was gonna say this guy's about to drive away his second best-in-the-league big man.

Completely forgot about Gasol.

So three bigs who at some point have been the best in the league. He's about to drive away all of them.

I agree that kobe needs to stop shot jacking. I doubt he will tho. Maybe when nash comes back.

Wow, that is a crazy stat. My buddy and I were talking last night about how many shots he is taking this year. When Nash comes back I think things will change. They should anyway.
