Recap of Kobe’s 1-14 shooting night https://t.co/ezGFXHk85v

The Golden State Warriors are 16-0 and appear to have no immediate plans of losing a basketball game. So beating up on the Lakers 111-77 — a rather enormous gap of 34 points — was not a surprise, and neither was a miserable Kobe Bryant following the smackdown.
The dude shot just 1-for-14 from the field, scoring just FOUR points, including several embarrassing airballs and one lifeless heave that got lodged between the rim and the backboard. Even worse, no Laker scored more than 10 points for the FIRST TIME IN FRANCHISE HISTORY. That covers 5,301 fucking games.
Congrats? Kevin Negandhi’s face here says it all.
Let’s go ahead and break down Mamba’s delusional comments after the game:
“I’m not really worried about it, honestly.”
But you should be, Kobe. You should be very worried. And soon, very retired.
“My shooting will be better.”
Listen, man. You had a great run. But it’s going to get uglier, you’re going to freak out, snd it’s definitely going to be awesome.
I could’ve scored 80 tonight. It wouldn’t have made a damn difference.
This is actually incorrect. Had Kobe scored 80 points, the Lakers would’ve prevailed 153-111. Facts are facts, and I’m here for facts.
“Frustration kind of got to me. The fact that the way I played, the way I shot, blowing coverages defensively, coming down offensively and not having the concept of what we’re trying to do.”
Wow. Kobe sounding so defeated and realistic about his awfulness, and lacking any sort of wit or injecting a little sarcasm with reporters is a telltale sign that this is officially Game Over.
Peyton Manning and Kobe Bryant badly need to go bowling.
