If you were A TRUE LA LAKERS fan you would be understanding that Koby has been in the NBA since the the age of 18 & with his height comes many health issues. Also take note it takes more than 1 more player to win a game! I would also hope you take his age as a factor. Shaq left on his own not b/c of Koby!
