Kobe: “I’d Go 0-30 in a Game Before Going 0-9”

NBA GM says Kobe has no trade value

The Kobe documentary is shaping up to be must-see TV, especially if we are going to get more quotes like this.

Gotham Chopra, the director of “Kobe Bryant’s Muse”, an upcoming documentary on Bryant, told a story about being with Kobe and watching the Nets and the Heat play. Recounts Chopra, “Deron Williams went like 0-9. I was like, ‘Can you believe Deron Williams went 0-9?’ Kobe was like, ‘I would go 0-30 before I would go 0-9. 0-9 means you beat yourself, you psyched yourself out of the game, because Deron Williams can get more shots in the game. The only reason is because you’ve just now lost confidence in yourself.'”

Did you expect Kobe to say anything differently? Even if you disagree with the point, you can understand the thinking.  Kobe has always been a going doing swinging type of player (except when he gets pissed and stops shooting to prove a point in playoff games).  Even if he goes 0-30, he thinks shot 31 going to be nothing be net.

Off topic, remember when there was a debate who was better Deron Williams or CP3?

Me neither….

  • Tell Kobe that he would go 0-9 then 0-10 0-11 etc. So he would go 0-9 on his way to 0-30.Pretty simple math. Then again your talking about mr ego.

  • ^^You completely missed the point, Mike. Of course you hit 0-9 on the way to 0-30. 0-9, yes you’re having a rough start but to STOP at 0-9 means that you have benched yourself. Keep shooting. Keep playing.

  • Tell me something I didn’t already know. The role of a PG is a little different than Kobe’s role, so we’re really talking apples & oranges here. The PG’s role is not primarily scoring. He can do a lot to help his team by putting his teammates in a position to score if he’s having a bad shooting night. No one doubts Kobe is going to keep shooting whether he’s hitting or missing shots. That’s his game.
