Kobe Bryant: 35 confusion

Until the age of 35, kobe Bryant to real life problems.
In his 34 years and eight months, he seems to be in serious trouble: it was on April 12, 2013, the Los Angeles lakers VS golden state warriors with three minutes left, kobe Bryant took the body leaning against the opposite Barnes, break through the limits before, Michael left leg, right pedal. Movement range is big, he clearly wants to have a cleaner. Before then, left foot landing, his right foot is soft, then fell down.
No collision, limped off where is no. That way, more like his right foot to the limit, to keep the balance and fell down, left the soles of your feet to the ground, to be pulled to, so his Achilles tendon.
After that, a whole week, the world in doubt whether his great career to this end, he in the face of adverse factors as follows:
He's 35 years old, called the 17th season. In many theories, experts believe that the professional basketball player will hit forty thousand minutes, while Bryant has played fifty-three thousand minutes.
Unusual Achilles tendon recovery will take six to nine months, and, from 1998 to 2011, 18 players an Achilles tendon rupture, only eight after return, also continues to play the full a year in the NBA.
Dominique Wilkins, and Elton brand, after Achilles tendon rupture, for more than ten months.
The most important of all, in the last 15 years, the NBA players of all eighteen Achilles tendon rupture completely, did not have now a kobe Bryant - 35 - so big age.
While Bryant, active as usual. After the injury, he immediately on the personal home page talked:
"One day, the beginning of a new career will be present, but that's not today."
"' if you saw me and the bear rally, pray for the bear." I like this sentence. That is' spirit of mamba, we don't retreat, we don't retreat, we don't run away. We insist on, then conquer."
Injury after three and a half months, kobe has gloat, show their own efforts, he has to walk, to practice power. Encouraged, he shouted: take part in the training camp before the start of the season, regular season will start soon!
- but in the end, he is still waiting for a month, and then on December 9, on this day, his comeback: at the staples center in Los Angeles home, in this one night of the Los Angeles lakers VS the Toronto raptors.
Although played six games, after he was injured again, again want to rest for six weeks, but the injury, is not is heavier than the previous Achilles tendon rupture. You can believe in, to his tough, he was able to recover.
He is not in his own trouble,.
On December 9, before his return, the 2013-14 season the lakers 10-9: considering the Nash, kobe Bryant is his rehabilitation, gasol poor condition, this record is really good. But Bryant back later, what has changed?
On December 9, return to night, Bryant all five of his 28 minutes 2 for 9 nine points and eight rebounds and four assists 8 mistakes 2 steals. This evening, the defensive end, Bryant mobile actively and carefully; The opening soon in the right corner of oppression each other, causing a steals. He watch the ball, therefore missed at least two novak's bottom line without the ball, commonly known as harden type leakage, but better late than never, flapping out covering. Because attention to reinforcing side + mobile actively, so also caught pile backcourt rebound. The whole person too laboring to move, but the defensive end in addition to the two attempted to build an offensive foul and missed a three points, generally get by.
After a few games, his defense is roughly: very positive, very confident, as if know move fast enough, unable to put pressure on its own, so in the mobile terminal is very positive.
But on the offensive end, but he felt in step by step. Opening the ball, he in the left bottom line, transfer a jump ball, penetrate the defense and direct the basket, thackeray layup: this is the foundation of his offensive: organic would want the ball, not to create opportunity to also want to pass.
Since then, kobe Bryant and pau gasol around a few tries to cover cut out after passing the pick-and-roll artform. He has been trying to feed the ball to pau gasol; Really start to try to score, it is a diagonal cut out, catch hook shots - air balls.
He has been playing very tolerance very restrained. Had an opportunity to fast-break layups, to Blake, give with Wesley - Johnson dunk after; Couple singled out a fields, the breakthrough success, but the ball to pau gasol. Tried many times a wide range of transfer, there is success, there are errors, finally in the second quarter, one on the left side of the breakthrough. In a usual he should be stopped in the area, stop; Shooting feints, twice, was finally, through rapid left bank shots - after he put into the ball, the narrator rang: "kobe made his long-awaited comeback this is!"
After a few rounds, right back to the ball, stepping into the basket. First left breakthrough false action, then test step right, and then the strong pull of the sign jumper - full of joy, as he entered the finals victory over.
This is all his mobile warfare score. Also made a number of free throws in the second half, there are several turnovers. He shot two of eight nine points and eight rebounds and four assists eight turnovers.
The most important thing is: the lakers lost to the raptors. The raptors last win in Los Angeles? On December 28, 2001.
Because just back, Bryant's moving a bit slower, shooting jump is lack of power. That's subtle, this one night Bryant, from all aspects and different past Bryant. His defense is very careful, very positive; The offensive end, careful, was hesitant. He has been thinking about passing, is combined with the teams hope, but because this team has much transformed, so every time the ball, he is looking for pau gasol and roll - it was the one who is his only familiar.
Return to the first world war ii, on December 10, the lakers' home loss to the sun, Bryant 29 minutes 8 in 6 of 11 shots 20 points, three assists rebounds 2 turnovers.
That night, Bryant is not outside playing pick-and-roll. Before the game he said he would get 20 points, no sooner said than done: he moved into the inside, began to swing back body singles idiomatic after 2009. His mobile better explosive force also play in the recovery, incredibly still breakthrough to dunk a bottom line.
Compared to the first game, Bryant entered another pattern. If the first kobe Bryant ever cautious, and constantly trying to organize, that a kobe Bryant's can be called "2009 years later, Bryant:" little basket dribbles, a lot of back to a, stepping surface defect, + cic with concise test step to solve the problem. Efficient scoring model.
On December 13, return the third war, the lakers lost to the thunder road games, kobe 6 throw in 2 to 4 points in 23 minutes, send out 13 assists, 2 steals, 7 turnovers. Farmar and Blake are missing, so kobe Bryant as a point guard, as a result, he entered the kidd mode: didn't find scoring opportunities, blindly pass, three 13 assists.
The game is his the years, the most rare a, even demons against the raptors: is not the way in all his injuries or other reasons to leave game, shooting less than 6 times, it was the last century; 13 assists from his career-high single-game 15 assists to creep, and in fact, 15 assists the night he was 11 years ago, against the wizards when Jordan, took 43 minutes to play. More rare than data is his performance: he passes to share, as selfless as Jason kidd and rubio. Three games since his comeback, he changed three different mentality.
On December 14, the lakers beat the bobcats, Bryant 8 of 32 minutes 15 three points 3 of 5 2 of 3 21 points, seven rebounds 8 assists 7 turnovers - since this was his comeback, win for the first time.
Before the game, kobe Bryant as the mode of three games, all switch again.
The opening, as usual, he and gasol errenzhuan: getting the chance to shoot into the cic, cut inside also assists the gasol's pick-and-roll. In the second quarter, he still tireless search for gasol, middle also take care of the Wesley - Johnson; Wonderful in his in addition to play with gasol errenzhuan, can also be integrated into other teammates passing lanes, for example, he ran with Johnson has several beautiful fit.
The third quarter, Bryant again into passing, hence the bobcats also understand it. Henderson and Taylor to predict accurately, continuous breaking Bryant's passing, and Bryant and gasol not play a cut inside, to play and roll cut, you also don't often get inside to back a heads-up. The last half of the fourth quarter, Bryant saved game: although lack of ShaQi, but he's a cic, assists young 3-pointers, a layup and a fake action made free throws after successful, solved the game - especially the right driving layup and the two free throws, is a battle to secure for the lakers.
Four games, Bryant in four different forms: first, rusting, and tried to pass the ball to a teammate, but often hesitate, just like an old driver just drive a new car in a new city, the traffic rules, car condition is not sure, just trample accelerator and brake immediately, stop-go, glance left and right.
Second, he entered the back body I mode, all are in moderate speed.
Third, he played point guard, so uncharacteristically, crazy passing, opportunity, no chance manufacturing will pass, as the driver started racing, regardless of the appearance of the traffic lights.
In game 4, as well as the eagle after games 5 and 6 against Memphis, his basic is routine before packaging: trying to organize, try to move the ball, often into the waist position back body singles. In the sixth game against Memphis 18 shots 9 21 points 5 rebounds, 4 assists, he is injured again.
His problem is simple: kobe Bryant, a bit hesitant.
He is the black mamba, never sharp biting, even a bit arbitrary, from technology to momentum and to overwhelm the opponent; Even in the face of the pressure of the shark, the world, still palpable, I never hesitated. But over the past four games, until the fourth field at the end of that a moment, we just saw the "I really know how I play, and never add hesitation" black mamba. Many years ago, coach phil Jackson said Bryant fully know, how to play the so-called "right basketball", but he is not always as it goes, and will always just stubbornly, turned the game into his paranoia aggressive stage. Can say, this a few, kobe Bryant is a bit too rational. Of course you can explain this:
He played hesitate, be afraid of making mistakes, trying to beat selflessness, perhaps just because: he was uncertain about her body. And up to 100% before your confirmation, he did not confirm whether his usual style of existing the lakers.
But as mentioned: he is not the problem.
In the absence of kobe Bryant, the lakers' winning percentage is 50%; Kobe Bryant back six wars, the lakers only 2-4. Of course, you can say, this is because kobe just back, still looking for feeling; Bryant did for the team, to sacrifice some of their habits.
Question is: the lakers now, not his sacrifice oneself, can solve.
Kobe Bryant on the lakers team, the most familiar and only pau gasol, but gasol in the lakers' time, will not be too long.
Bryant has renewed two nearly 50 million years of the contract, and in his career, obviously can't accept the lakers long reconstruction, but the fact is that with the lakers, at the moment the whistle centaur is unable to be favourites.
Kobe Bryant can try to adapt to, and in his art, must be able to adapt to the lakers' system - but you have to admit, the team, not set up to play his specialty.
And in order not to annoy kobe Bryant, the lakers also absolutely can't bad reconstruction, they must maintain, as by meeks, Wesley - Johnson, Nick Yang, thackeray these players, trying to form a team to win the championship.
For a long time, the fate of the kobe Bryant, actually has not completely dominated by itself. The 2005-07 season, the peak age of his personal ability, but because the side around the smush parker and kwame brown, so can only be wandering in the first round; 2007-10 season he kill into the finals and win the champion for three consecutive years, not because of his personal, but because he had a good teammate. The current situation is that:
He is still the league skills the most pure and most stubborn personality players, but the time was long in his career, has caught up with the lakers as the background of the setting sun. Kobe Bryant can rely on our own efforts, overcome injuries and age, but form a good team, need to sign up, trading and draft, this is not he can control. Though his personal ability can reply, but has been difficult to alone and carried the lakers to the zenith.
"I like this sentence. That is" mamba spirit ", we don't retreat, we don't retreat, we don't run away. We insist on, then conquer."
In April 2013 when he injured the words, sounds, now still heroism dry cloud; We never doubt that he can insist on and conquer the injuries, but there are many things, is, indeed, even the most stubborn warriors, will be scratching his head.
