Kobe, the only player in NBA history that gets shitted on for either shooting or passing.

That would be good, no doubt. He won't able to play the same level of defense obviously, but the all-around game is definitely reasonable.

So he actively tried to rack up assists, and he gets the ball more than anyone in the league besides Durant and Lebron, and yet he could only get 8 assists against the T-Wolves.

Not sure if that's an accomplishment or proof that his passing vision is average at best.

How could you watch the last 5 games and think he has average passing vision? Dude has thrown so many sick interior passes for easy layups and dunks. No, the problem is that he's not a freaking PG. It doesn't come naturally to him (Duh). It's pathetic that the best player on the team can't even take play to his greatest strength BY FAR, which is scoring the ball. Dude is a top 5 scorer in history. And he has to go out there and completely change his game just so his teammates can feel more "involved" so that they can play defense.

Those were good.

These last two games were bad for him.

So like I said, he's average.

Exactly.

The guy who should be adjusting is Howard. It is a pity Jim Buss screwed up by hiring Pringles instead of Phil,because he is the only one I think who could have gotten Dwight to play like Bynum did near the end of the 2010-11 season.(focus on defense and put-backs).

When you get your number called on as much as he does, and are actively turning down shots to prove people wrong or whatever he is doing, I would sure hope you would be able to find some cutters and slashers for open lay-ups a few times.

For him to not reach double digit assists in this strange "I'm not shooting anymore and I'm getting assists" situation twice is pretty telling.

Oh yeah. That's exactly what he's doing. It can't be him simply trying to get his teammates more engaged. No, it's all him trying to prove people wrong.

LOL. It's hilarious how you people think you know what's going on inside the dude's head. When it he was scoring 30+ a night it was him going for the scoring title. Now it's him trying to prove people wrong. SMH.

Who gives a shit if he doesn't hit double-digits or not? He had 9 in his previous game and 8 tonight with his teammates missing a TON of easy baskets he created for them. In the previous three games he had 14,14, and 11. That's an average of 11.2 APG. lol @ average passing ability. Seriously, watch the games.
