Following the game, Kobe was asked about his opinion on holding the title for the most missed shots in the NBA, and he brushed off any of the negative criticisms that might come with it.
“Well, I’m a shooting guard that’s played 19 years,” Kobe said. He later added, “Like I said, ‘shooting’ guard, 19th year. I don’t care about it, to be honest with you. It is what it is. I remember when I was a kid and I watched Michael shoot 49 times in an NBA Finals game. Can you imagine if I did that and lost? Puts things in perspective.
“You’ve got to step up and play, man. You can’t worry about criticism. You can’t worry about failure. You really can’t worry about that stuff. You’ve got to go out and figure that out and play and do the best you can, and whatever happens, happens. You can’t be held captive by the fear of failure or the fear of what people may say.”
