It is no news that the Lakers, composed with one of the most lethal rosters in the history of the NBA, is struggling. Yet their leader, 5 time champion Kobe Bryant, is having one of the best years of his career. Averaging 27,5, and 4 with 1 steal a game, his team is still losing. The answer might be Kobe’s abillity to dominate, or perhaps the nagging injuries with their big men, or even their sideline maestro Mike D’antoni. But the Lakers might not make the playoffs in nearly 60 years.
