Default Re: Contrived, Preconceived Stat Padding (Kobe v.s. LeBron)

When a player is passing up quality shots in order to pad a field goal percentage, isn't that just as bad for a team as say the recent crucifixion of Kobe Bryant for ... basically being phony in recent games passing up shots to pad assist totals, at the expense of quality shots for himself.

It's the same forged agenda, just different purposes. But no one has a problem when LeBron does it.

Hmmm ... No one else takes issue with this contradiction? Or fan hypocritical behavior and reception of the performances?




No.

If Lebron ended up 8 for 9 on FG's for 16 points and 8 assists then we could talk.

But he ended up 13 for 14 for 31 points, with 8 assists and 8 rebounds. There is no way you could possibly hate on that...
