LOS ANGELES -- Kobe Bryant has had these kinds of games before. Certainly not often and not recently, but they're always memorable when he does. Presumably, before any game, Bryant will have a point to prove once it starts and will do everything in his power to prove it the moment he steps onto the court. Maybe he heard that he shoots too much or maybe he read that someone wants the ball more, whatever the case may be.
