Lakers beat Golden State today, no Kobe and 7 players in double figures. I think maybe the Lakers should give Kobe some breaks. I think it re-energized the team and gave Kobe some much needed rest. Don't get it twisted, the Lakers are far better with #24, but sometimes everyone just needs some time apart.

No need to get it twisted, Kobe is worried about his points and nothing else.

Kobe Shits On American AAU, Praises European Basketball System


LOS ANGELES -- Kobe Bryant believes European basketball players are more skillful than American basketball players, and says it's a growing trend that can be blamed on the greed and coaching at the AAU level.

"I just think European players are just way more skillful," Bryant said Friday night after the Los Angeles Lakers' 109-106 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. "They are just taught the game the right way at an early age. ... They're more skillful. It's something we really have to fix. We really have to address that. We have to teach our kids to play the right way."


I just think European players are just way more skillful," Kobe Bryant said Friday. "They are just taught the game the right way at an early age."


Bryant was quick to point the finger for the decline of skilled players in the United States.

"AAU basketball," Bryant said. "Horrible, terrible AAU basketball. It's stupid. It doesn't teach our kids how to play the game at all so you wind up having players that are big and they bring it up and they do all this fancy crap and they don't know how to post. They don't know the fundamentals of the game. It's stupid."

Bryant was born in Philadelphia, but when he was 6, his father, former NBA player Joe Bryant, moved the family to Italy to continue his playing career. Kobe spent his childhood in Europe until Joe retired in 1991 and moved the family back to the United States.

"When you have limitations and you understand your limitations and you stay within yourself, you can be great," Kobe Bryant said. "You know what you can do and what you can't do. In America, it's a big problem for us because we're not teaching players how to play all-around basketball. That's why you have Pau and Marc [Gasol], and that's the reason why 90 percent of the Spurs' roster is European players, because they have more skill."

Bryant smiled when asked what type of player he would have become if his family had never moved to Italy and he hadn't learned how to play the game in Europe.



"I probably wouldn't be able to dribble with my left and shoot with my left and have good footwork," Bryant said. "I was kind of fortunate because when I was growing up in Italy, the Red Auerbachs and the Tex Winters and all those great coaches were doing clinics and camps in Europe. They were teaching all the club coaches, and the club coaches were following their advice and their fundamentals like the bible, and they were teaching all of us kids that type of stuff. Me, Manu [Ginobili]and all these guys that grew up around that same time, we're a product of that. It's a big difference."

Bryant had a simple solution to the problem.

"Teach players the game at an early age and stop treating them like cash cows for everyone to profit off of," he said. "That's how you do that. You have to teach them the game. Give them instruction."

But Bryant, who holds an annual summer basketball camp, also was quick to point out that any solution involving changing the current culture of AAU basketball won't happen overnight.

"That's a deep well because then you start cutting into people's pockets," Bryant said. "People get really upset when you start cutting into their pockets because all they do is try to profit off these poor kids. There's no quick answer."

Bryant is complete trash at this point... his high usage rate combined with his low efficiency is really hurting the team. If I was a Laker fan, I'd beg him to retire. Now since I am not, I hope he plays 5 more seasons.
Cause I don't care where I belong no more
What we share or not I will ignore
And I won't waste my time fitting in
Cause I don't think contrast is a sin
No, it's not a sin

They have NO chance of making the playoffs regardless - so yes, if the plan is to keep Kobe on the team to tank and get better picks, it's the right move to keep him. Just not for 5 times of his real athlete value.

lets be real, the team is terrible...and you're only as good as your team. if kobe was playing wit a cast of all-stars ala lebron, then he would be having a stellar season. it's pretty obvious.

Kobe has had terrible teams before, only then he averaged 35+ppg with much better percentages.

I think your missing the point Nik - the problem with Kobe is and always has been his shot selection. Yeah, when he was in his prime he could pull up those ridiculous almost half-court 3-pointers - even tho it were bad shots, he had nights when they go in.

Now at this stage in his career he should be smarter than this and focus on picking up better spots and being more careful with it. Your old and past your best days - play closer to the rim for fuck sake! Use that post play your picked up from Jordan and run with it shooting fadeaway's and turnaround j's from 17 feet - not 5 steps behind 3-point line.

And I don't wanna hear that "he's on a bad team" excuse - yes, he is. But that dosen't mean he should to jack shots like these:



It ain't 2006 muthafucka - use your fuckin' basketball IQ. With 6 second left, he should shoot that ball atleast one step inside 3-point line - it always irritates the fuck out of me when I see him doing some stupid shit like this...

doesnt sound like u know how basketball works...when u play on a bad team with a stagnant offense, it's impossible to generate good shots on your own. it's almost like playing 1-on-5.. if there's no movement off the ball, ull basically be forced to take a terrible shot with the clock winding down...thats where teammates come into play. unfortunately for kobe, he didnt have the luxury of playin with a facilitator like pippen for the duration of his prime. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS ON BAD TEAMS....look at the shot clock in the gif u posted. when u fed up with people depending on u all the time, thats what happens.....it's all circumstantial. and thats why i bring up teammates...if kobe had the resources, he'd still be doin what he been doin throughout his career. but he dont, and thats where the bullshit comes from....ur only as good as your team.
