Thank you, Steve Nash. It's too late for Kobe but at least he finally learned from you.

" If not treated quickly with help defense, 4 to 5 assists can be fatal to most teams. However, the black mamba can deliver as much as 10 to 14 assists in a single game"

What did he learn? How to stand around on the perimeter and contribute nothing?

And the sad-sack Lakers have won 3 straight. Hmmmm........

Say what you want about Kobe but he is in it to win. If winning means he stands around with his thumb up his butt then that is what he will do. I always thought Kobe was the bad guy in the Kobe - Shaq feud but Im not so sure anymore.

Maybe he's hurt. Looking at his game logs, I'd guess a shoulder problem. He's 0-for-11 from beyond the arc in his last five games.

Well, DUH.

Kobe Bryant isn't a football player, so why would he be attempting field goals anyway?

/DOES NOT COMPUTE

They've won 3.65% of their games IN A ROW?

Two of which were against those juggernauts known as the Jazz (24-21) and Hornets (15-30)?

Go ahead and use a Sharpie to put them on your blank playoff bracket.

If Kobe misses a shot, and another Laker rebounds it, is that being called a pass now?

The problem with the assist category is if you pass it to the wide open guy, and he sucks it up with a mega-brick you get no credit for it.

In Aussie Football there's a stat category for that, called "disposals".  I imagine it would be ridiculously high in the NBA

It was both of them, but Shaq always got a pass from the media because he was a good interview. Kobe's problem was that he was stubborn to a fault, distrusting of others, and anti-social...but you never had to question his work ethic or will to win.

Shaq's problem was that he was hugely insecure, petty and vindictive, and quick to anger...but he was such a physical force that he was worth whatever headaches he caused.

They both had alpha male personalities, but unlike Magic and Kareem before them...they didn't have the maturity to realize how much they needed each other, or the good sense to keep their gripes behind closed doors.

The problem with assist is that if a superstar pass to a guy, and he takes 5 dribbles before getting the bucket, he'll still be rewarded with an assist.

This.  Kobe played with one of the most dominant centers of all time, yet never fed him the ball enough (IMO).  Shaq should touch the ball every possession.  Let the big guy generate fouls and draw two-three extra defenders and then you will get open looks to shoot or drive.  Remember Penny Hardaway?  He was able to be an effective offensive weapon because he fed the big man.  Once Shaq left, Penny faded away.

Early in the Kobe/Shaq years there was a fair amount of working together/passing between them (maybe credit to Phil Jackson is warranted here).  Later on when the dynasty started fading, it seemed like Kobe just wanted all the glory and started shooting a lot instead of feeding Shaq.  Had Kobe had this passers mentality his whole career, he could have easily averaged 10 assists a night.
