Trust In The Kobe System
Look, we know Kobe is now one of the NBA’s elder statesmen but keep it 100: If he’s healthy, is there ever any certainty that he can’t win? How many times has he pulled of the impossible? How many players points per game average actually increases after age 32? Not even His Airness can make that claim. No matter how rocky a season the Lakers have, if Bryant is on the floor, opponents are never comfortable and fans don’t stop believing. No Journey though.
A few more season’s with the Mamba in control, means a few more opportunities to do what many deem impossible for the Lakers at this point: win a title.
