Yes. Kobe doesn't fit, AT ALL, with Steve Nash.
Why did Michael NEVER have a point guard? B.J. Armstrong, Steve Kerr...both small shooting guards. Pippen brought up the ball (or Jordan).
The Lakers would be a 50 win team, at least, with Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, and a shooter like Ray Allen and a dime a dozen slash guy. Kobe is a direct conflict to the entire flow of that offense...and renders what they should be doing (pick and roll with Nash and Howard) completely moot. Kobe has to get his, so the offense will never have a flow...and we know they aren't ever going to play defense.
I said when this all happened they'd be a total bust this year based on the premise that Nash and Kobe don't make any damn sense. They still don't...and now they...they suck.
The suck with Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, and someone who likes like a shitty version of Ron Artest.
Why? Because this shit never works. A Kobe can't play with certain players like a LeBron...LeBron would fit with everyone because he doesn't need the ball to be the best player on the planet like Kobe...Kobe will never work with a PG.
