97-98: Kobe starts one game and averages 15/3/3 on 54.8% TS

13-14: Kobe plays only six games and averages 14/4/6 on 50.5% TS (vomit)

14-15: Kobe plays only 35 games, misses the last 9 leading up to the ASB, and averages 22/6/6 on 47.7% TS(!!!!!!!) aka 37.3% FG. Simply atrocious.

15-16: Kobe puts up 18/4/3 on now 46.9% TS aka 35.8% FG (you thought it couldn’t get worse). There’s an argument that he’s one of the worst players in the league that year by taking up 17 shots per game.
