It's common knowledge by now that Kobe's been a career bricklayer.

The overall numbers are not bad at all. Kobe shoots a respectable (not great) percentage from the field on his volume. Almost any perimeter player in history would kill for his scoring efficiency on his volume of shots and his level of difficulty on those shots.

What these stats show is that Kobe can't carry a team to wins (generally speaking) when he's a high volume shooter. He's simply not efficient enough. Again. Its not the career fg%, it is the fg% in all of those losses. That is why I and other get so furious at him. He doesn't need to take so many bad shots when his team is struggling. There is no reason for it.

These stats are a great indication of what we have all seen throughout his career. He's simply way too inefficient a lot of times and there is no reason for it. The NBA Finals last year were great evidence of this. So were the 04 and 08 Finals. Simply no need to shoot that much.

But people claiming the overall numbers are terrible for a perimeter player that shoots 20 times a game are not accurate. There is nothing wrong with the OVERALL %. Its not legendary, but its not terrible either.

I just wish Kobe would take 3 less shots per game on average and take many less shots in games where he's ice cold. But no player is perfect and Kobe's been one of the best ever.

How's it a thread killer? The same people that would say this are the ones that will say that Kobe's first years shouldn't count towards his ppg average because he never got any minutes. If it's a bad stat, then those years count so Kobe has less of the bad stat (TOs, missed FGAs) in the same amount of years. If it's a good stat, then those years shouldn't count, so MJ doesn't destroy Kobe in that stat when seasons played are equal....make up your minds...

216 bricks this season.
Kobe has more though, at 238.

Kobe has an average of 11.9 bricks per game this season through 20 games.
Durant has an average of exactly 12 bricks per game through 18 games.

Who cares about the scoring title or MVP race, the most bricklayer race is top notch.
