It is not about pure numbers. It is about timing of those shots and situations. He can take 15 shots/game and not deserve selfish label as long as these shots are within offense. Now he does lots of one on one drives and step back jumpers instead of passing to open teammate - maybe it is not selfish, maybe he just does not have pass first mentality or court vision. Example from Houston game is perfect - instead of passing the ball and getting team easy two he decided to take step back three on a fast break - that play alone shows how poor his basketball IQ is. Loss vs Detroit - another example, we lost because of his inability to make right decisions down the stretch.
True winning PG should always make best decision possible for the team - be it a pass, or a shot, or call a timeout.
