With 2015 2016 NBA season starting in less than two months, the Kobe show has already started. Critics are predicting another bad season for the Lakers. Some are even predicting that Kobe won’t average twenty points per game.
In my humble opinion the Lakers will make the playoffs and Kobe will average about 23 per game and 7 assists. At age 37 the greatest player of our era is hardly over. If Kobe can stay healthy this could be his finest season since 2012.
Kobe now has a decent back court of Russell, Clarkson and Lou two girls Williams coming off the bench. You got to believe with Lin gone, Nick Young will have a better season.
Kobe will not retire this year as this cat will play until 40 breaking more scoring records and leaving haters talking about LeBron.
Kobe ain’t gonna back down from another challenge. The addition of Hibbert and Bass should solidify a very bad front court. 2015 is gonna be different for the Lakers and another great year for Mamba. So the West is strong the Lakers will be too. Russell and Clarkson will have to speedup the rookie and Soph learning curve.
