When US team played it was tradition that he kept the ball in the end of the game dribbling the time out
Kobe is not LeBron. He spent most of his career in triangle. He had the ball in his hands like 25-30% of the time during most of the game.
I just don't how they figure out the final possessions. They both are used to create those clutch shots. But that's a nice problem to have.
And everything before the crunch time should be pretty smooth.
Pau Gasol is creating a lot of offense for the Lakers right now, same with Odom and to some extent Fisher / Artest. Give their job to Chris Paul, and Paul will have his hands full.
Also, Mike Brown spent years making point guards fit next to LeBron. It never was perfect but generally it was ok when those points could shoot. Kobe and CP3 would be much easier for Brown to figure out.
Anyway, hate the Lakers. Love the ambition.
