Kobe Bryant: Reasons a Lesser Role for Kobe Could Help the Los Angles Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant, for the past decade, has been one of the best players in the NBA, if not the best in that time period.

He has put his name in the history books as being one of the best Lakers of all-time and one of the best players in the history of the game.

Kobe has shown the ability to take over any game at any time and hit any shot that is necessary to win the game, and he has been rewarded for that ability with five NBA Championships.

Now, however, the Lakers see a different, aging Kobe Bryant, and while he is easily capable of continuing to do what he has done for the majority of his career, he should take a step back and ratchet down his production for the time being.

If he does, it could benefit the Lakers in more ways than one, and could make them a more complete and even better team, if that even seems possible.
