Talk about sending mixed messages. Yesterday he said he was fine with coming off the bench because the team was playing well without him, and he wanted to ease his way back in. So it was no problem coming off the bench yesterday. He actually does ok for limited minutes, and now all of a sudden he is upset?
Um, you think Kobe would respond any different? Dwight? Anybody who is accustomed to starting, and who believes their team can be better with them in the starting lineup?
Add to it the fact that many people are suggesting him being in exclusively a backup center role, which means probably 10-12 mpg. "The team needs you to play less. Would you like that?"
heres the problem, kobe and dwight have been performing like starters, Pau not so much. Go out and dominate, then be upset. you cant have both, you cant go out and not perform and then be upset when youre the one being tinkered with in the lineup.
the guy lets lebron make layup after layup on him last night and then comes out and hes upset. how about this, try a hard foul on him, make him think twice before he attacks the rim. you know, what people do to kobe, youve seen it over the years. smh
