Lakers’ Byron Scott credits Kobe Bryant’s recent efficiency to decreased workload

first_imgSAN ANTONIO >> In previous years, Kobe Bryant’s absence would spark concerns about his health or rustiness. But in his 20th and final NBA season, things have changed for Bryant beyond becoming more reflective and nostalgic. Instead, Bryant’s absence during practices and morning shootarounds this season have become normal. Bryant skipped Friday’s session to ensure he will play when the Lakers (11-41) visit the San Antonio Spurs (41-8) today at AT&T Center in his final game here. Lakers coach Byron Scott also believes that approach has largely contributed toward Bryant averaging 29.3 points on 44.4 percent shooting, 8.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists in the past three games.“Less work has been better because his legs are fresh, especially the last couple of weeks,” Scott said. “He has a different pep in his step.”After nursing soreness this season in his left leg, right shoulder and right Achilles, Bryant argued he had had successfully offered a counter punch to Father Time by staying consistent with his around-the-clock treatment. But while that stayed the same, Scott revealed that Bryant changed his workload. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Scott reported for the past three or four weeks Bryant listened to his suggestion to take 200 shots per day instead of 500.“He tends to work harder when things aren’t going right for him,” Scott said of Bryant. “That’s a detriment to him, too. If his shot is not falling, he gets 500 more shots up that day and next day’s legs are gone.”Extended bucket list The Lakers have fallen in love with Jordan Clarkson, partly because he has often expressed hunger to continuously improve. But even if the Lakers’ second-year guard has downplayed individual accolades, Clarkson admitted he has become hungry for something else when he participates in the NBA’s Skill Challenge during All-Star weekend. “My main goal is to try to get free tacos,” Clarkson joked, mindful that Taco Bell has sponsored the event. center_img Clarkson will have what he called “a busy weekend,” considering he will also play in the NBA’s rookie-sophomore game and judge the NBA Development League’s dunk contest. With Clarkson averaging 15.2 points on 44.6 percent shooting, Scott envisioned Clarkson eventually playing in the main event of All-Star weekend. “Hopefully in the next couple of years, he keeps progressing,” Scott said. “When it’s his fourth or fifth year in this league, hopefully he’s one of those guys that you can look at as possibly being an All-Star.”Scott reiterated his want for Clarkson to improve his perimeter defense, outside shooting (34 percent), assist-to-turnover ratio (2.4:1.9) and free-throw attempts (2.8), all goals Clarkson plans to attack. With Clarkson facing restricted free agency this summer, he offered a strong signal he would like to grow with the team that drafted him.“I definitely want to be here in LA and be a part of this young group and grow,” Clarkson said. “Hopefully we can grow into something great. I love L.A.”As for making future All-Star appearances?“You definitely want to reach the top pinnacle of what you do. That definitely would be cool,” Clarkson said. “But I’m trying to be the best I can and help our team win games. I want to be great one day. But all that stuff will come so long as I come to work and win games.”last_img read more
