give us more of that!

Check out Kobe Bryant's stat lines over the last three games:

Against Utah, 7-10 FGs, 14 assists, 9 rebounds, 14 points.

Against Oklahoma City, 8-12 FGs, 5-6 FTs, 14 assists, 9 rebounds, 21 points.

Against New Orleans, 5-12 FGs, 4-4 FTs, 11 assists, 8 rebounds, 14 points.

All victories for the Lakers.

39 assists in three games. Over his 17-year career in the NBA, Bryant has never had a three-game stretch like that.

Will Kobe's transformation into Magic Johnson mean anything for the Lakers over the long run? Not so sure about that, but it sure does seem a lot better than when he's firing up between 20 and 30 shots each game and the Lakers are losing.

Ball movement and unselfish play make for beautiful basketball. For Lakers fans, this has to be encouraging. I'm actually a Suns fan, but before that, I'm a hoop fan. I'm hoping that Bryant keeps it up.
