Now that he’s the all-time miss king, look for Kobe Bryan to offer up reasons as to why he’s been missing so much. A quick, easy answer is because if you shoot a lot, you’re probably going to miss a lot as well.
But perhaps there’s another reason for Kobe. The 36 year-old blames tired legs for his increasing misses.
“The second half of games for me have been a struggle lately with my legs,” Bryant said. “My shot’s just been really short even though my legs feel good.”
At the same time, he said there was a need to be “working on my legs a little bit, getting them stronger. […] It’s a fine balance at 36, trying to find the rhythm of strengthening your legs as the season goes on without wearing them out. We’re in uncharted territory in terms of trying to figure this out, but we will.”
