Kevin Durant scored 32 points Wednesday in the Thunder’s season finale, putting his season scoring average at 28.03. This means that for Kobe to win his 3rd scoring title in this, his 16th season, he’d need to score 38 points against the Kings.
The Lakers may rest all of their starters except Kobe, using this game as a way to see how the younger players perform going into the playoffs.
Of course Kobe has downplayed the talk of a scoring title saying that it “was not very important,” but I kind of think he’d like to have it.
Do you think Kobe should go for the scoring title in tonight’s game, especially if he starts alongside a possible lineup of Darius Morris, Devin Ebanks, Jordan Hill, and Josh McRoberts?
