It’s official: This season has been the worst in franchise history for the Lakers. Tonight’s 122-99 loss to the Sacramento Kings gives the team a .256 winning percentage; before tonight, the 1957-58 Minneaspolis Lakers had the worst winning percentage in team history, at .264.

Kobe averaged 25 in the first round, 35 in the 2nd round, and drops 45 in the Conference Finals (on the road in San Antonio). 

Not winning the Finals MVP while averaging 28 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists only means that there was another amazing guy on the team, it doesn’t magically make 28-7-6 meaningless.

2001 Kobe is arguably the best non-Finals MVP on a championship team since Kareem in 1980, when he missed the last game and Magic started center.
