As Howard nears 100% recovery from the back injury, and regains his explosiveness in the paint, he becomes that much more capable of helping to carry the offense. This, in turn, allows Kobe to re-prioritize his game...not so mind-boggling really."No turnip, I think the Lakers have started to gel because Dwight Howard is finally rounding into form and is almost 100% coming back from his back surgery, and Kobe is making an adjustment in his defensive philosophy playing more on-ball defense while making a concerted effort to sacrifice some of his energy on offense so that he can shut down his man"Perhaps, but time will tell. It was still homes games againt 2 EC non playoff teams.
I do agree that Kobe needs to use more energy on defense and more rely on others for offense. Why it took 1/2 the season to figure it out boggles the mind.
Hey laker fans... you guys pouring any drinks in here tonight after this Heat game?
time to make up another imaginary start to the season.
