Kobe complaining about having to shoot too much cracks me up

Kobe Bryant had the following to say last night after his 44 point performance in yet another Lakers loss:

“If you think I want to shoot this many times and be as aggressive at 36 years old, you’re freaking crazy.”

I never thought I'd see the day when Kobe complained about getting to take too many shots. I don't buy that the all-time NBA leader in missed shots finds hoisting a few more shots a game that tasking. It's not like your lifting heavy weights. Just take 5 less jumpers before the game or in the morning shootaround. What I do see is a player who's going to be frustrated though out this losing season for the Lakers and we're going to get some good soundbites from him. Though this doesn't compare to his festively jovial line.
