Let's recap. I jumped in and highlighted the comment about Kobe taking 24 shots when he's got two of the best bigs in the game. The implication is that he should be giving them the ball more.

The truth is, the bigs are touching the ball more than the past. Kobe's taking 24 shots instead of 20 because he's taking them from perimeter players.

That's my stance. It's not about him Kobe neglecting the bigs. He's taking shots away from perimeter players.
I'll play your games HAVERCHUCK!!!!

So, by Mr. Haverchuck's irrefutable logic.

Kobe Bryant only steals/absorbs/takes shots from the perimeter players


IF Kobe Bryant was not on the Los Angeles Lakers


Pau Gasol AND Andrew Bynum would be taking exactly the same number of shots with Kobe as they do without Kobe


It's a weak stance based solely on numbers (now proven to be flawed)...you need to compliment the numbers with something qualitative, perhaps not your forte?

I know both basketball and numbers very well, which is why I try to stay away from numbers when talking basketball.
