Kobe Bryant is dealing with a stomach virus, meaning things are coming out both ends, essentially. He's playing, of course, but that doesn't mean he's feeling chipper this evening. So we might as well get this all out of the way now.
The Lakers are playing pretty crappy so far.
Kobe has been unable to stop Denver's runs, and Los Angeles is frustrated.
Maybe Kobe will be able to squeeze out a strong second half performance.
Kobe really needs to step on the gas.
It's gut-check time for Kobe and the Lakers.
Andrew Bynum needs to get on the glass to wipe up Kobe's misses.
What the Lakers really need is a streak from Kobe.
Hopefully Kobe doesn't hit the skids.
If Kobe picks it up, he'll be able to wipe the Nuggets away.
Now isn't the time to cramp up.
Maybe Kobe needs to play a little more loose.
Yes, we're 12.
