So the fuss today is that scoring splurge that National Basketball Association players have been doing as the playoffs are nearing. Practically all players have beendishing out exemplaryperformances to make the last 8 who will make the playoffs.
But if there is one thing to be remembered, basketball is a team game of 5 players. Sure Kobe Bryant has been turning in 50 point performances to help the Los Angeles Lakers win. Question is, until when? Allowance for possible injuries is a given, something that most teams are suffering from.
But the fact remains, teams win championships and not one player. Kobe can score even 100 points if he wants to. But without a championship to boast of, the last of which he tasted when Shaquille O’Neal was around, will only be for personal glory. Perhaps the Los Angeles Lakers should start evaluating, are they after a championship or just content on placing a controversial player like Kobe Bryant in the record books.
