D’Angelo Russell On Kobe Bryant: ‘Basketball Gods Aren’t Blessing Him Right Now’
D’angelo Russell Updates On Glute Injury: ‘i Wanted To Get Back Out There’
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

After 19 seasons of wear and tear, Kobe Bryant is struggling in what will likely be his final season with the Los Angeles Lakers. The superstar not being himself on the basketball floor has not gone unnoticed from teammates, coaches, and the fans chiming in on the subject recently.

Although seemingly healthy, Bryant can’t seem to get going on the basketball floor with the superstar guard shooting a dismal 31.4 percent.

Russell was asked about his teammate’s struggles after practice on Monday saying the following, via ESPN’s Baxter Holmes.

Russell, much like Bryant, is also struggling and has been unable to find his groove with the Lakers thus far. Los Angeles has dropped the first three games of the 2015-16 NBA season with the team coming off two straight blowouts against the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks.

Bryant has received a lot of criticism for his poor play over the course of the first week of the season, but head coach Byron Scott continues to back his star. Coach Scott doesn’t seem to have a problem with Kobe’s shot selection and believes it’ll be only a matter of time before he gets back up to speed.

Kobe and the Lakers will get back on the floor on Tuesday night against the visiting Denver Nuggets. Russell will be put to the test in this matchup going up against fellow rookie point guard Emmanuel Mudiay. The Nuggets guard was one of the few prospects the team was considering drafting with the second overall pick and seems to have already made an impression in Denver.

The entire Russel, Clarkson experiment has been a disaster. Getting whipped by washed up has been PGs like Rubio, Rondo and Dwill, giving up 40 points in the first quater against Sac, giving up 15 to the Mavs in the first couple minutes…so embarrasing.

  • Russell, Clarkson, Kobe, Randle, Hibbert = not going to win more then 10 games. Might get their first win before December, big iffy.

  • Lakers play the Knicks this Sunday… do you think they’ll have a ceremony for Kobe?? Would be cool seeing Fish and Phil giving him a nice send off.

  • Smh they’re a bunch of witches. Hopefully this ain’t true cuz if it is he’s cursed.

  • Why would they even do that, a rival team ? and besides it’s not like it’s his last game nor he announced that this would be his final season

  • Not right now. But in two or three months depending on the development and chemistry of the team they could be competitive. All depends on the development of our guys. Although there is also that famous Rookie wall haha.

  • If i were to predict in 2005 that the Lakers would be this horrendous and mediocre in 2015 and the clippers would be an elite team i would be sent to the funny farm.

  • Bring Brown’s defensive skills and three-point shooting ability in an you’ll see quite a few wins before the end of this months.

  • N ot if your a LAKERS FAN, every one is getting blown out by GS, the TW was a one point loss , and DALLAS only by 10 we were a slow start in that game got down by 15 and worked our way back to 6, and lost by 10, one good thing we will see them again, there is always revenge.

  • Sheesh, some of you fans are just too negative. Have a little faith in your team and hope the changes that need to be made are corrected. These are all mostly new players all thrown into one dirty mixing pot, give these guys some time and or games to find a ryhtm atleast.

  • Funny thing, when you take away Kobe’s 3’s, makes and misses, he’s shooting 45.45% from the field. His 3’s are what’s killing his overall FG%

    5-11 Minn
    4-4 Sac
    1-7 Dal

    10-22 overall excluding 3’s 45.45% shooting. He needs to just get away from the 3pt line and concentrate on making his 2’s. His 3’s are 6-29. Making far fewer 3’s on far more shots.

  • ON DISH they have a program called dish game finder- you can go there and find othere channels where you can see them, every game is on that finder program, its simple heck if I can do it any one can, just check it out on your PC just google it DISH GAME FINDER. Hope ithat helps you or other that did not know.

  • incendy stop posting 100 Kobe posts on every article. Limit the hate comments so I can read some actual insightful ones

  • Yeah, but we need the 3 from that position. The wing guy is the outlet pass word Randle, Russell and Roy. If he can’t make the 3 he needs to either play the 2 guard spot or watch the game with the rest of us.

  • There is getting 3’s from that spot, then there is jacking up nearly 10 3’s a game and completely outshooting your 2’s. That shouldn’t be the case. Kobe should be looking to score more within 20ft and take the occasional triple. 3-5 a game is reasonable for the minutes he plays.

  • Rondo had a great shooting game, they’re rare but they happen. Most nights, Rondo could be wide open and not hit jack. Rubio it’s much the same, unless he’s been working on that shot. Rubio is also young and not washed up. The kid just turned 25. D Will had 11pts on 5-12 shooting, not very effective. He had 8 assists, but when you have Dirk shooting lights out, you’re going to get assists. Rondo and Rubio did tear the Lakers up, it was Dirk who killed the Lakers last night, not DWill.

  • Eventually there will be a change and as one commenter wrote , D’Antoni’s offense and Thibs defense !!! What a combo !!!

  • Yes, but it’s really annoying man. Like seriously every article there’s about 20+ comments about how bad he is from you. We all have eyes, and he’s not playing well. I’m just asking you to limit the hate in a lesser amount of comments

  • I only have two on this article, so I will try to keep it under 80. Well under my 100 mark you set.

  • Kobe, not real Laker fans act like he’s gonna magically get better during the season. Of course, you’ll see some vintage Kobe a few times, but that Kobe who use to carry the Lakers and win games for them night in and night out is long gone. He did not age well at all after the achilles.

  • It’s not hate, when you see he is stinking it up out there. And Kobe knows it too.

  • Nix the 3’s and you have 5-11, 4-4 and 1-7, 45.5% shooting on his 2’s. We could see him successful if he stops taking so many 3’s and starts taking more 2’s.

  • I would really like a young coach willing to experiment. Becky Hammon or Luke Walton would be really fun.

  • Just wishful thinking but NBA is changing and with enough money on the table two sharing the head position as offensive head and defensive head coaches !!!!

  • Duh. I’m just asking for limit of the bashing Kobe comments. I’d rather see comments for example on what fans prefer Randle develop, instead of Kobe sucks 20+ times from the same person.

  • Experience brings respectability and you need that with young players like Kobe had with Phil .!!!!

  • “If he” is clutch here. As we see Kobe has not been able to do “If he” for 20 years, that’s what separtes him from effective players.

  • But you need 3’s from the wing in this league or you can’t compete , KB needs sometime off to work on his legs , there is no lift !!!!

  • That’s right, most his fanboys can’t face the fact Kobe is done. I’m saying it here for 2 years, and they still can’t face it. Sad but true

  • I understand, but for a guy who has been around the game his whole life and 1 of the higher IQ’s, he should know when to try something else if his shot ain’t working. He just keeps firing 3’s up like it’s gonna improve.

  • Becky would be best but I doubt the Lakers are that progressive and I doubt she would want to coach all these ballhogs.

  • There was always talk about Fisher being a coach when he was playing with the Lakers. He was the real leader of the team, not Shaq or Kobe.

  • A good coach tries to get the best from his team on any given night by utilizing his hot players with more playing time in order to compete , Nick is shooting 50% FG and 50 % 3’s but plays 17 minutes and is taken out regardless of the score , Black is the best finishing big and he has not played nor has MWP or Nance and again we have the 3rd worse defense in the league !!

  • I think she probably would love to coach the young guys. she did a phenomenal job in Summer League. Kobe, well, that is a problem.

  • Kobe in his career averages around 4 attempts per game. Lately he’s shot roughly 10 per game. He can do “if he” by simply going back to what he’s averaged over his career on triples.

  • No, I did not bench anyone. Would like to bench Kobe though, but it seems that idea is too much for the fanboys.

  • Randle is our best player so far, Clarkson would come in at 2. I’m sure he would bench Russell and make Clarkson the PG.

  • It’s not that simple when a guy has lost most of his footspeed and can’t go by defenders like in the past. I’m more disappointed in why he can’t take 1 or 2 dribbles in and take a regular jumpshot instead of settling.

  • At this point in his career the 3’s are probably easier for him. He can’t post up and elevate for his jumpshot over defenders anymore. Still there is no reason he has to shoot so many.

    Kobe always has and always will be hard headed. He is heII bent on proving ESPN wrong while making himself look worse in the process. He could get easy buckets and average 18 points on 45% shooting but is obsessed with scoring like 25 a night.

  • Kobe needs time to fix his game and heal his body with a visit to Germany for a procedure again and some of those good vitamins “wink ” and be back just in time to make a season out of this !!!!

  • Hope so, can’t even imagine Kobe keep shooting 10 3PT per game for the season on amazing 20%. It would be at least the second biggest circus in this team history (the first was Kobe’s previous season).
    Problem is when Kobe stops shooting so many 3s, he will get much more shots from middle and keep his 35% from the game. Kobe is Kobe

  • It wasn’t vitamins, it was Orthokine. Blood removed, spun in a centrifuge, whatever science stuff about separating good healing stuff from the blood, mixed with some stuff and re-injected into the affected area.

  • Maybe when Kobe retires they can fire Scott and hire her cause lets be honest, Scott was only hired cause he is a familiar face to fans and would never challenge Kobe.

  • Heal from what? He hasn’t played a lot of basketball in the last 2 yrs, so his body should be fresh. The guy has 20 yrs in the NBA with over 50,000 miles on his body. He’s just old, and it happens to the best of them.

  • That’s the point, Kobe is completely obsessed with having his 25 points per game, no matter cost, because he knows most people would still consider him top NBA player. Unbelieveable

  • Whatever it was it was good and worked well and if hasn’t used the vitamins it might be time to try them , every athlete they have talked to that has gone through injuries recommend some sort of PED to make them recover faster and the NBA should STFU and let the man finish his career on a high note fully healthy .

  • That’s what I’d like to see, or him take the short corner 3 instead.

  • Not in a nice way- how do you get involved is he your brother and you have to speak up for him.

  • This doesnt have anything to do with this article . But can someone explain to me why clarkson is not playing 35 mins a game. I have read alot of ppl criticize his defense but he is consistently guarding the other teams best player. This would be fine if he was drafted for his defense but hes a scoring guard. He also can’t make up for russel and kobe. Huertas may move the ball a little better but teams arent chasing him off the 3pt line and are sagging back.

  • It’s not against the league rules for him to use. It pretty much just uses what the body has naturally on it’s own. I don’t know what the other stuff in there does exactly, probably more of an agent to allowing it to properly distribute through the affected area of the body and some other things to make sure there isn’t a risk of infection or otherwise.

  • Kobe said he would retire if he couldn’t avg 20 a game. And the only way he can get to that is by a taking a high number of shots, which does no good for the Lakers. There are 25 million reason why he’s still playing.

  • Good question. I’d like to see him averaging closer to 35 a game and Randle averaging closer to 32 a game. Randle’s average though has more to do with his 5 foul Sacto game than anything.

  • So apparently Kobe left practise early because he was mad. Accepting that your career is over has to be a hard pill to swallow.

  • this team is built to compete not to tank look at the good mix of youth and vets

  • Clarkson, Sacre, Young, Kelly, Old KB24 will be rememberd as the darkest hour in Lakers franchise history. Let’s hope they arent rememberd and these seasons are forgotten when we eventually start being dangerous again.

  • he got there, get mad and excused himself to Scott maybe he is having a bad shooting

  • Bro he is a longterm troll. He is always been here trolling. Its not even about Kobe. He is just a flat out troll.

  • I’m not in denial of that. I’ve made that clear, I’d rather he take smarter shots in the post, paint, not many 3s. I’d also like to see him pass like last season. Not sticking up for Kobe btw, he’s been playing bad. Just rather see less of the same ol comments.

  • Bro he is a longterm troll. He is always been here trolling. Its not even about Kobe. He is just a flat out troll.

  • Above here you asked a question on how to see blacked out games, and to my knowledge I tried to help , you did not interfere, but your telling me to CALM DOWN, even if it is truth what he is posting who’s business is it anyway, is that why he came to Lakers Nation.

  • Oh no !!!!! Just heard Russell is dating Kendal Jenner !! No wonder he is more focused on hairstyles than basketball , definitely a move to the D-league is due to wake the kid up and a visit to see Lamar might help too !!!!!!!!!

  • Technically Kendall isn’t a Kardashian, she’s a Jenner. She’s also the hot one.

  • Clarkson has to make his money when KOBE is off the court other wise he does not get many touches and KOBE played 32 minutes last night. So I still feel he is the best player on the court. Randle is coming and is going to be great, wanted by many teams..

  • Russell should come off the bench for now, he can gain his confidence and just play his game with the 2nd unit. He doesn’t have to compete right away with the top pg’s, get his rythm and confidence against back up pg’s where he might have some advantages compared to starters. FO knew he wasn’t ready yet, he was taken because of his potential. Also replacing Russell with Brown or MWP slides Kobe back to his usual SG position where he still has size and height advantage to take his opponent in the post. Also Brown or MWP plays better perimetrr defense than Russell as of now. But Russell will get better, look at Curry now. Not saying he will be as good as Curry but nobody knew he would be MVP and be this good. So there is always room for Russell to improve and at the same time give the team a chance to win by letting him come off the bench.

  • While it is still early in the season , loosing games can change things quickly. I’m interested to see where this new Laker team goes, do they pull together and play smart and hard basketball or do they get used to loosing and tumble in the wind. Yes coaching hasn’t been doing a good job (since preseason on deciding and preparing for regular season ), players not hitting shots, planets not aligning for Laker Nation, in the end we will know and this time No amount of excuses can save them. It’s just 4 games, lets give this team time to grow.

  • No way, let russell play, the one who needs to be benched is Kobe.

  • This is caused by Scott’s non-existent offensive system. Yes, Kobe missed “makeable” shots, but the offense is confused. No chemistry, all iso, and everyone is scared. Since Russell is still learning, they’re playing without a PG. Without an adequate PG “off the ball Kobe” doesn’t work.

    Scott needs to establish Kobe around the elbow, and have him work his way out or create plays from the high post.

    Until Russell develops, move Kobe back to the 2, bring Brown to the 3. Let Kobe or Clarkson or randle dictate the offense. Brown would provide better D on the wings. Should cover a greater area. I’m tired of watching the Lakers play perfect D for 20 secs, then give up a 3, let the player waltz in for a lay up, or hand them a second chance.

  • Tell me about it…jc sat forever. Kelly/bass experiment needs to stop. The Lakers were coming back in the 3rd and he removes our biggest threats (Kobe, russell who hit two threes back to back, and randle). He replaces them with cold dudes off the bench…they can’t warm up in a sec. A 7 pt deficit went to 17 in 3 mins. How can you end a quarter strong with those moves?

    Let’s not forget, he chooses to play 3 SGs at the same time. If Nick and young are in…please put huertas in and remove Clarkson.

    Now, alongside those 3 SGs…he puts 2 PFs (Kelly and bass)…he is setting up these guys to fail

  • step it up ??? so your one of those dumb bandwagon fans that thought he would come in on game 1 and drop CP3 numbers??? here let me give you a hint Mudiay is being talked about because he’s aggressive and attacks while putting up 13ppg and 5apg yet is a turnover machine, as well as not having to differ to the likes of Bryant, Randle, Clarkson, Williams and even Young. This kid needs to be playing 30-32 min per game but isn’t, as a whole team is shooting 40% which is effen bad since you don’t know BBall…
    But to answer your questions yes if you wants more assists out of the kid then wait until the team as a whole can convert his passes to points….. and since your probably still confused about what i mean well here you go; Kobe misses 14 per game 6 of which DLO has had the primary assist but haven’t gone in….. If you need anymore help just let me know…

  • “your one of those dumb bandwagon fan” Brilliant.

    Nice try with the fake superiority complex con but Face the facts. Randle has 7 assts, Hibbert has 5. Huertas leads the team with 9 in almost half the minutes. If you want to make the bad shooting team excuse for russell, then it should also be for guys who has more assists than him. Should Hibbert/Randle/Huertas have more assists cuz the team sucks. If anything, the Lakers big men should complain that Russell is hitting only .267% of his 3s (4/15) and costing them assists.

    The Kobe excuse doesn’t just apply to Russell. But if you want to use it. How about him not trying to get cheap assists by passing it to Kobe on the arc if he shoots so badly. getting an assist of a hero shot works both ways.

    BTW. Prefer to keep it civil but If you want to continue to use personal attacks to support your point, then I’ll return fire. No holds bar next time. No problem.

  • Randle, Clarkson, and even Huertas have all had more ball possession than the rook, if you really want to dive into stats heres some for you, Russell plays 25min per game and as the PG is responsible for “running” the offense yet he averages less than 16 touches a game ???? meaning on that first pass to get the O flowing and to move the ball around it often doesn’t and it also almost never returns to his hands to create.

    their is no Kobe excuse its a fact that DLO is getting him the ball far to often and bricks follow, the times he has created for guys like JC/JR they’ve slashed to the basket and gotten fouled which again adds to no assists and for those passes to Bass and Kelly well lets just say those guys are just playing bad. Those are facts….

    If you want development of these kids they can’t be playing 8 mins in the 1st quarter then sitting for the next, I find it funny that yourself and others think you have Russell figured out after 3 damn games! be sure to revisit this topic around games 25-30…as for all those breakout games other rookies are having well how many are the 6th option?? how many play with two other young studs that can create their own shots???

  • Seriously? Oh, wow, that sucks. I’d hate to be stuck between Dish or Direct.

  • Well, that’s a much better response. Stick to the facts. Not sure where you’re getting 16 touches a game but he takes 10 FGA in 25 minutes. 30 FGA in 76 minutes. That’s already 10 touches a game. I’m sure he brings the ball up more than 6 times a game. His USG% is 19.3 about the same as Clarkson. D’angelo isn’t underutilized. Huertas has a usage rate of 11.7%, so no, he doesn’t actually have more possession time in his 11.5 minutes.

    You can’t use the foul no assist argument cuz everyone plays by that same rule. Can’t single out DLO. Huertas makes great passes that leads to fouls, too.

    I don’t need for Russell to figure it out after three games.. (although he’s had plenty of time already) What I need from him or any starter is to step it up. And you should agree with this, cuz you said it. he needs to be more aggressive and go to the rim. Get assists from that aggression. He’s parked in the perimeter to find team mates, that’s not creating. The cutter is.

    Without the threat of penetrating, he’s not gonna develop. BS’ other prodigy Paul/Irving had that in game 1. Irving and Paul had 15 assts in their first 3 games.

  • Starting lineup: Clarkson, Young, Kobe, Randle,….Black.
    Second unit: Russell, Williams, Brown, Metta/Bass, Hibbert.
    My reasoning is that both units now get more of what they’re lacking. The first team needs more offensive punch and more physical post play as Hibbert is not providing much in the way of post defense. I believe Tarik will be a much more scrappy defender than Hibbert. Nick young will work well with Clarkson or Kobe handling the ball. Hibbert will play much better against second tier centers and provide the second unit with a much needed upgrade over Bass. Russell will be in the D-league of sorts, learning against presumably lesser players while sweet Lou can provide much of the scoring, with Randle and Clarkson being young and at the ready if needed.

  • thats another thing I forgot to mention, the Princeton has Russell bringing up the ball then cutting to the basket and away from his shooting strengths.
    the 16 touches came from espn analytics, that showed Russell isn’t being allowed to run the O, jus bring the ball up…look at the T’Wolves game, he’s drafted as a PG yet BS moves him to the SG spot??? so he changes his mind and vs Sac he has him start at PG then after his first rest he’s back at SG??? yes he needs to show improvement but BS needs to put him in a position to succeed as well..

    agree with the lack of penetration, he’s had wide open lanes and refuses to drive for whatever reason????

  • Then he is a horrible and arrogant coach who needs to humble himself. I suppose he figures these guys can just morph into whatever he wants them to be just because they are pros.

    It’s frustrating watching this team. When your PF has the most assists on a nightly basis then you know something is wrong. A rookie PG who isn’t performing, a 46th pick second year combo guard playing SG (to be fair he is performing up to par), an aged injury ridden SG playing SF with a rookie PF. Then off the bench he has an undersized SG playing PG alongside two PFs with one playing C. No wonder they suck. Huertas needs more minutes. The assists and ball movement is awful right now. Someone needs to smack him upside the head.
