“We have some key pieces that are out; when they come back, we’ll get this thing locked and loaded,” Kobe Bryant
Bryant: “I’ll take control of the ball a little bit more. I’m going to play more of a striker position.”
Bryant is now talking about doing more, but how can he? He’s averaging 29 points, his most in six seasons, and shooting 48 percent, which would be his best ever. He wants to act like a striker in soccer, to have the ball more to set up teammates. But is that a good thing?
