Is Kobe Bryant on pace to deliver his most prolific season of all time?
Thus far in 2012-13, Bryant is averaging 30.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game. He's also shooting a career-best 47.7 percent from the floor.
Unfortunately, the Lakers are 15-19 and in danger of missing the NBA postseason for just the second time since 1994.
The Lakers have lost four in a row and five of their past six games. Most recently, they lost to the Houston Rockets.
By lose, of course, I mean to say that they were shellacked by a score of 125-112.
Their next two opponents are the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs. In other words, it will take a masterful performance for the Lakers to avoid falling six games below .500.
A performance that Bryant is more than capable of providing.
If Kobe is able to rally the troops, he will cap off his most prolific season of all time. If he is unable to, this will be remembered as just another season in which individual statistics outweigh one's true brilliance.
So what is it that makes this a potential season for the ages?
