The pressure on Kobe ...

LOS ANGELES - Kobe Bryant is starting to sound like he anticipates an avalanche of critcism if, as expected, the Lakers lost this series. And while Celtics coach Doc Rivers defended Bryant as the the most "unfairly" criticized player in the league, the old debate - when to involve teammates, when to take over a game - is becoming a recurring theme.
Longtime Lakers assistant Jim Cleamons repeatedly referred to a need for "balance" in the offense, and specifically noted his club's 18-point first-half lead in Game Four. "Kobe didn't score a point in that half," said Clemons, "but we moved the ball and got everybody involved."
As one humorous aside a few minutes later, Bryant said he recovered from Thursday's bruising defeat by reading Harry Potter to his daughters.
"They just wanted me to read to them," he said, "and I swear it was awesome. He (Potter) had more problems dealing with the media and the Celtics."
