“This is a good team that just for whatever reason can’t collectively mentally get stimulated to [play hard] every time. I told them today, we put our hands in [the huddle], and you guys have probably seen it, we say, ‘Championship,’ and go out [on the floor]. That’s laughable. Championship? You got to be kidding me. Nobody understands the importance of every possession offensively and defensively. Every time they got to come out with some kind of determination to be a good basketball team, and [until] then, we’re just, we’re fooling ourselves. Right now, that’s what we’re doing. We’re just making a ‘sham-mockery’ out of it.”
“I can’t explain it, but every time we get up 16 [points], it’s like, ‘Well, we’re really good and we don’t have to play hard,’ and we start messing with the game. You start messing with not moving the ball. You start messing with, ‘I’m just going to go one-on-one every time.’ You start messing with the basketball gods, and they get you.
To me that sounds like a passive aggressive attack on Kobe. He’s the only player on that team that ever gets any isolation looks on offense.
This also sounds like a coach that doesn’t have the respect of his players. And it also sounds like he’s not taking responsibility for his lack of coaching acumen choosing instead to blame this on some kind of bogus retribution from the basketball gods. The scary part about this is that I think he’ll be back to coach the team next season.
That Lakers loss to the Suns was all on Kobe.
Poor clock management on the play were he missed the left-handed layup.
He knew the clock, he knew they weren’t gonna play any D on the next possession. You have to go 2 for 1 right there.
