Kobe Bryant says chemistry is the issue for Team America:
"Years playing together will jell us as a unit, [but] if there is no chemistry, it's going to be tough to beat all those talented teams," he said.
Does he even realize how he comes across anymore?
Truehoop beat me to the punch with the comments about Kobe in Las Vegas with the U.S. team, and the site nailed it, so I urge you to check out what was written.
Chemistry was not the problem in Japan. Pick-and-roll defense was the problem in Japan. Also, the more I read and talk to people who have opinions on how the team can improve that problem, the solution seems to keep coming back to Lamar Odom.
Needless to say, I can't wait to see the Lakers' team chemistry and how they defend the pick-and-roll come November.
