True greatness in basketball is the ability to make teammates better when they are struggling and give them confidence, not steal their shots.

How the hell do you steal a teammate's shot anyways?? That doesn't make any sense.
This is it.

I'm holding Kobe to a very, very high standard because all I hear about this guy is how awesome he is. Awesome players make their teammates BETTER... they don't make excuses and demand better teammates.

Nash has made people better for YEARS now.

Lin has made his Knicks teammates (the same guys who looked HORRID before) better.

Pierce, Lebron and Wade have made their teammates better.

Kobe's answer to everything is to take more shots.... whether it's over double teams or triple teams. If your big men need someone reliable to feed them down low then YOU DO IT. If your team needs someone who can run the offense then YOU DO IT.

Kobe has what? 5 rings? Did he ever have a top flight PG for ANY of those titles?
