This is pretty much Kobe in a nutshell these days.
He isn’t going to stop shooting. He might shoot the Lakers in a game or out of a game, but he isn’t going to change. Lakers fan should be use to it by now.
In the short term, Kobe can get away with these type of performances against the Hornets, in the long term if he ever wants to get that 6th ring he will have to dial it down.
#1 thing to remember is on the court Kobe has no fear, missing 18 shots in a row didn’t deter him at all. Kobe is a stone cold killer, just sometimes you don’t know which way the blade is pointed.
