It’s Kobe’s World, so Welcome to It
Mark Heisler, get over it [Nov. 7]. We already knew Kobe didn’t live up to the media hype you got suckered into and then helped build and amplify since the day he signed with the team. But apparently it’s all still news to you.

We’re sorry Kobe won’t engage in frank, probing conversations with you and that he doesn’t take your sportswriter status any more seriously than we do.
Against the Grizzlies, Kobe Bryant displayed the dreaded Allan Iverson syndrome by shooting jumpers even when they were not falling.
This is the type of poor shot selection that has driven fans and teammates crazy ... and you can’t blame Shaquille O’Neal for this one.

Now all the Lakers need to complement Kobe Bryant is a big, dominating center to ... er, uh. Never mind.
