Everyone thinks their way of helping someone is the right way, but that’s def. not the case. The Lakers problems continue as they took another L yesterday. Kobe’s frustration with the Lakers is growing and when asked about Dwight Howard, Kobe explained his methods of helping him.
Check it out after the jump & let us know what you think….
According to Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo Sports:
On the issue of Howard’s belief that the ball simply doesn’t go through him enough on offense, Bryant rejected the premise.
“I’ve tried to go out of my way to get him the ball,” Bryant told Y! Sports. “Sometimes I end up looking like an idiot, because I get up in the air, I’ve got a shot, but I try to find him. But he thinks I’m going to shoot, so his back is turned. I’m trying to think about getting him the ball a lot – take care of him as much as I possibly can. It takes me out of rhythm a little bit, but I’m fine with that. If that’s going to help our team, I’m more than willing to do that.”
When Howard did get the ball on Monday, he missed four of eight free throws. He let the Bulls strip him. He missed three of his five shots. His aggression seems to come and go, on offense and defense. Perhaps it’s the back; perhaps it’s something else.
“I’ve constantly tried to help him out, tried to talk to him,” Bryant said. “Two o’clock in the morning, three o’clock in the morning. Texting him. Sharing reading materials. Anything to try and help him.
“He’s coming off a major surgery in a market where it’s just merciless; where there’s demands and responsibilities of athletes. It’s been tough on him.”
