Kobe's (Massive) Minutes

by Mike Trudell

 

Lakers Reporter

Posted: Aug 28, 2015

Heading into the final year of Kobe Bryant’s contract — his 20th in the NBA — there’s one particular statistic that makes it difficult to discuss what comes next, whether it’s a discussion about the possibilities he’ll play for Team USA in the 2016 Olympics or if he’ll come back to the Lakers: minutes.

Heading into the 2015-16 campaign, which will make the 17-time all-star the longest tenured player in the history of the NBA to stay with one team (passing John Stockton’s 19 with Utah), only four players in the league’s existence have been on the floor longer than his 55,415 regular-season plus playoff minutes.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (66,297) and Karl Malone (63,493) are out of reach, but Jason Kidd (56,199) could be caught next season, and Wilt Chamberlain (55,418) will be caught in the first game.

Bryant's last three seasons have ended in injury, starting with the left Achilles tear in 2012, in addition to the knee fracture in 2013 and torn rotator cuff in 2014. This year, head athletic trainer Gary Vitti expects Bryant’s minutes to be limited,which may give him a better chance of staying healthy. 

Those minutes on the court cannot be undone, but Vitti, Byron Scott and co. are hopeful that a change in minutes played (Bryant averaged 34.5 minutes last year in his 35 games) can put Bryant in a better position to stay on the throughout the season. Scott, in fact, took some responsibility for playing Kobe too much last season, almost having too much confidence in the five-time champion’s body.

“He had minutes on his mind that he felt he could handle, and I felt he could handle a little bit more, and I felt he was right,” Scott said. "Obviously when we talk heading into (the season), I’ll ask him again what he thinks minutes wise, and I think this time I’ll take his word for it instead of going with my own gut, because he was absolutely right.”

“We don’t know,” Vitti said when asked for a minutes total. "If he plays 25 minutes, there’s less chance he gets hurt than if he plays 35 minutes. But the 35 minutes, in terms of the shoulder injury had nothing to do with it. I think Byron is going above and beyond by taking the heat.

Scott did pledge to be “really careful” with Bryant in training camp in part due to his recovery from shoulder surgery, but also just to generally protect him ahead of the season.

Of course, until Bryant gets through the season, it’s complete speculation to wonder what comes next. That won’t stop us from discussing it, but don’t expect an answer anytime soon.

My Top Ten of All Time

1. Wilt Chamberlain( He hasn't played in over 40 years and still holds the most NBA records of any player EVER.. I could go on.)

2. Michael Jordan ( Yes I did not put MJ at No: 1)

3. Magic Johnson ( Although it can't be too difficult to be a 6'9 PG he is still the best PG the game has ever seen.)

4. Kareem Abdul Jabbar ( No: 1 all time scoring ever. What more do you need?)

5. Tim Duncan ( In my opinion, best PF ever)

6. Shaq ( Not a fan, but he is the most PHYSICALLY dominant center ever, not the most dominant.)

7. Hakeem ( Had the best footwork of any center ever)

8. Kobe ( I mean, he is basically the MJ of the modern era of basketball)

9. Larry Bird ( Best SF of all time , as of now, like it or not LeBron will be someday)

10. John Stockton ( Best underrated legend of all time. All time leader in assists AND steals.)

Darryl Dawkins, who arrived in professional basketball as a gigantic teenager and became one of the game’s fiercest dunkers and most notoriously lovable characters, a backboard-smashing, referee-dissing, fun-loving manchild known to fans as Chocolate Thunder from Planet Lovetron, died on Thursday in Allentown, Pa. He was 58.
Tracey Sechler, a spokeswoman for Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, confirmed the death. Robert Tyler, a family friend, said the apparent cause was heart failure.
One of basketball’s larger-than-life figures — though at 6-foot-11 and more than 250 pounds he was pretty large to begin with — Dawkins made his mark on the sport’s history in a number of ways.
Selected as an 18-year-old from Orlando, Fla., by the Philadelphia 76ers as the fifth overall choice in the 1975 National Basketball Association draft, he became the first player to make the leap directly from high school to the N.B.A. (He was not the first high schooler to turn pro. A year earlier, Moses Malone had jumped from high school in Virginia to the Utah Stars, a franchise in the American Basketball Association, which merged with the N.B.A. in 1976.)
With a sculpted physique, inordinate strength and an unusually accurate jump shot for a man his size, Dawkins was expected to be a star in the league for years to come, drawing comparisons to Wilt Chamberlain. He was mischievous and flamboyant — he was known to wear an electric lime-green suit — and fond of rhyming and hyperbolic fantasy musings. (He invented the Planet Lovetron business when he was in high school.)
But immature, not technically adept around the basket and resistant to the entreaties of his coaches, Gene Shue and later Billy Cunningham — “I was uncoachable,” he admitted years later — he began his career in the shadows of other N.B.A. big men like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bob Lanier and Wesley Unseld.
Even so, by his fifth season he was averaging nearly 15 points and 9 rebounds a game. And his coaches loved him anyway.
“It was hard to be mad at Darryl Dawkins,” Cunningham recalled in an interview with ESPN in 2010. “I mean, he would drive you crazy, but then he was a little boy inside. A little boy.”

Besides, no one, not even Chamberlain, could dunk like Dawkins, and on a November night in 1979, with the Sixers playing in Kansas City against the Kings, Dawkins rose over Kings power forward Bill Robinzine and his powerful dunk literally brought down the basket, shattering the Plexiglas backboard and raining clear pellets onto the floor, and delaying the game by 90 minutes. He gave the dunk a name: “The If-You-Ain’t-Groovin’, Best-Get-Movin’, Chocolate-Thunder-Flyin’, Robinzine-Cryin’, Teeth-Shakin’, Glass-Breakin’, Rump-Roastin’, Bun-Toastin’, Glass-Still Flyin’, Wham-Bam-I-Am-Jam.”

When Dawkins repeated the feat a few games later — “The-Chocolate-Thunder-Ain’t-Playin’, Get-Out-Of-the-Wayin,’ Backboard-Swayin’, Game-Delayin’ Super Spike,” he called that one — the N.B.A. responded by warning him that he’d be fined if he did it again, and later making it illegal to hang on the basket after a dunk, a dictum that became known as the Dawkins rule.

“Everybody says a dunk is only two points, but it gets your team hyped, gets the crowd all excited and takes the starch out of other teams, especially when you dunk on somebody,” Dawkins said in an interview with The New York Times in 2004. “And I always dunked on somebody.”
Dawkins played a total of 15 years in the N.B.A. The first seven were with the Sixers, with whom he went to the league championship finals three times and lost each time. (In 1982-83, the season after he departed, Moses Malone replaced him at center and the Sixers won the title, which they have not done since.)

He also played for the New Jersey Nets (now the Brooklyn Nets), the Utah Jazz and the Detroit Pistons. For his career, he averaged 12 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.
More notably, he led the league three times in personal fouls, testimony to his ferocious inside play (and possibly because the refs were never crazy about him), and because he dunked so often and shot well from midrange, his career shooting percentage, .572, is the seventh highest in league history.
Darryl Dawkins was born in Orlando on Jan. 11, 1957. He was raised mostly by his mother, the former Harriet James, though Mr. Tyler, his friend, said he remained close to his father, Frank Dawkins. He led Maynard Evans High School in Orlando to the Florida state championship in 1975.

After his N.B.A. career ended, Dawkins played professionally in Italy and spent a year with the Harlem Globetrotters. In recent years he coached professional teams in Winnipeg and in Allentown, where he met Janice Hoderman, who became his fourth wife in 2001.
A gentle giant in his later years, Dawkins also coached the basketball team at Lehigh Carbon Community College in Schnecksville, Pa., not far from Allentown, where he lived.
In addition to his wife, his survivors include their son, Nicholas, and daughter, Alexis; a stepdaughter, Tabitha; a daughter from a previous marriage, Dara; his mother; and several siblings.

A number of players, including Kobe Bryant, Kevin Garnett and LeBron James, followed Dawkins’s lead and entered the N.B.A. straight from high school.
Not long after Dawkins’s backboard-shattering spree, the league introduced the so-called breakaway rim, which yields to downward pressure and then snaps back to the horizontal, minimizing the potential for destruction.
“The first one was an accident, but I wanted to see if I could do it again when I got back to Philadelphia,” Dawkins recalled in the 2004 Times interview, referring to his most smashingly spectacular dunks. “All the fans were hollering, ‘You’ve got to do one for the home crowd,’ so I went ahead and brought it down.
“Everybody was in awe. Fans were running out grabbing the glass. People’s hands were bleeding. I felt like I was doing something no other human could do.”
