Yes because any of those player open under the basket is a worse shot than a Kobe 360 fade away airball.

Re: Who's fault?: Kobe, D'Antoni, or entire team?

Some of you tell me to "watch the game." Well I'm watching the start of the second quarter of the OKC vs Lakers game with the Lakers up, and Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy are having a long discussion about how it is great that Kobe is PASSING, and getting players involved.

MIKE BREEN: Kobe has more assists than field goals. Perhaps this is the route to go.

JEFF VAN GUNDY: Yes Mike, instead of Kobe holding and holding the ball only to shoot unmakeable shots, it is better for Kobe to get other players involved.

Not saying I'm right or wrong, but I'm clearly not the only one who thinks Kobe should pass more.

@IRVING. The source you mentioned that Kobe loves to shoot is something I already knew. I never brought it up because I wholeheartedly know that the topic of Kobe being a ballhogger is not new. : ) So Irving, is Jeff Van Gundy wrong about saying "Kobe holds and holds the ball to shoot unmakeable shots." ?

End of 2nd quarter...

MIKE BREEN:Kobe has 5 assists!

JEFF VAN GUNDY: And he could of had five more on the unmakeable shots that didn't go down.

From my understanding if this, Jeff isn't claiming that Kobe does that. He's saying it's better to do that than to do something such as do unmakeable shots. Unless there's more to what he's been saying and you just simply haven't shown me it yet, this is just simply Jeff being Jeff.

Re: Who's fault?: Kobe, D'Antoni, or entire team?

@IRVING, or anyone else who thinks Kobe passes enough.

It's funny how the topic of discussion from NBA media is about how much Kobe has been "passing!" I swear I've heard KOBE and PASSING in the same sentence a dozen times on Sunday.

Mike D'antoni was asked, "Is Kobe sacrificing offense because of his passing?" Mike replies "No, not really, it's team basketball."

Also, gametime analysts on NBA TV repeatedly talked about Kobe's passing, and even phrased it as "Kobe is in a passing mood."

If Kobe normally passes the ball, why in the world is it such a hot topic and surprise to NBA analysts that Kobe is "passing?" lol

Re: Who's fault?: Kobe, D'Antoni, or entire team?

I assume everyone is aware of the fact that Kobe has been the primary distributor on 5 championship teams (not to mention every other team he's played on)

Re: Who's fault?: Kobe, D'Antoni, or entire team?

Why is it in our nature to try and find 1 specific root cause to place blame on? It isn't the last shot of the game that decides it, it's the 32/40/48 minutes that leads to an outcome. Additionally, it isn't one player/coach's fault when there's failure. What's the saying... "Success has many fathers, while failure is an orphan."

Bad defense, bad free throwing shooting, and an unhealthy team has led to the Lakers starting the season the way they have. However, last night's game is a prime example of the potential any team has with Kobe Bryant on the court. You simply cannot count them out. Not yet, at least.

Because Kobe's mainly known for his scoring. His scoring is usually how he helps his team win the most. Here that wasn't the case. That doesn't mean he doesn't pass enough. No shooting guard in the history of the NBA is mainly known for their passing, they're known for their scoring abilities. Again, if you knew anything at all about basketball you would know this.
