All about Kobe "Kobrone" Bryant: the Master of Arrogance, the King of the Ballhoggers, the Lord of the Liars.

Kobe: "I'll take 60 shots if I have to."

"When the game is on the line, they put the ball in my hands," Bryant said. "I've gotta do what I've gotta do, I don't care if it's 50 shots, 60 shots, five shots."

- Kobe Bryant, after the Lakers defeated a weak Boston team on Sunday.

They put the ball in your hands, Kobe, because you would throw a temper tantrum if they didn't. And, only Kobe would think that one needs 50 or 60 shots to win a game. Five shots? I don't think so. The only time Kobe came close to taking five shots is during a different type of temper tantrum - when he took only 2 shots in an entire half after hearing criticism that he was a ball hog.

Kobe played a decent against the Celtics, 18-for-39 (46%) from the field. But 39 shots? Is that really necessary? The only time you should take that many shots, two conditions have to be true: 1) You're shooting around 70%, and 2) The rest of your team is struggling. Neither was true in this game. Kobe shot well, but not amazingly. In fact, he missed all his 5 three point attempts. And the rest of the team shot well. Lamar was 6-f0r-10. Kwame was 5-for-7. Smush was 6-for-11. But, the rest of the team only took 51 shots, while Kobe took 39. Anyone see something wrong with that picture?

Sure the Lakers beat the Celtics, a team that has lost 4 of their last 5. But the more Kobe takes shots (and confidence) away from his teammates, the less chances the Lakers have of ever getting past the 1st round of the playoffs (if they're lucky enough to make it in).

And don't forget, this game wouldn't have been won without the Lakers' strong defense. The Lakers had 45 rebounds and kept Paul Pierce to 2 points in the 4th quarter.

huh, huh, it seems like this blog is getting inside the empy heads of all those Kobe brownosers. Every time you guys post, it brings a smile to my face. I love it.

By the way, the point of this blog is not to bust on the Lakers, the point of the blog is to highlight how Kobe causes the Lakers to lose by taking stupid shots.

wow, everytime these boggers post something about kobe, im very happy! Not becos im a kobe hater, in fact IM A KOBE FAN.

But whenever someone takes so much time to twist kobe's words and brainstorm such humorous headlines and storylines to blog about, it shows this person notices alot about kobe. N oso u guys take alot of effort to photoshop kobe's photos, huh??

Thanks to these guys, kobe draws the largest crowd on road, highest ratings when there are interviews.
Keep up the "good" work and continue supporting kobe!!!!!

PS: U guys = simply pure kobe haters, pure jealousy for a talented player

For the last guy, we are not jealous of kobe. Also there are more people who hate kobe that like kobe. My friends and I look at kobe fans as being derranged. Some say he is the greatest, yet there are not credintials. Oh, so he won three championships, but guess who was his teammate, shaq. And guess what, kobe just fades away in the playoffs, he shoots a terrible percentage. shaq carried the whole team on his back. the lakers didn't need kobe, they just needed a shooting that wasn't so full of himself and shot the ball everytime he touched it. And need i remind you kobe lovers the lakers pistons finals, kobe was god awful. he had like 11 points in one game and shot something like 8 for 26. he was a big reason why the lakers lost. did jordan every choke in the playoffs, never! he pissed on every team he played, and he played in an era where players actually played defense. Case Closed! Kobe is poser, Lebron is the second coming of christ and jordan is God!

You guys are so imature and wrong! Kobe can taken AND make any shot he wants. If you have a problem, dont be gay and type it, buy some tickets and talk to him about. And if your not SMART enough to do that challenge him and when you beat him (which you never will) then you should have the authority to write hater mail on a site.
