I was shooting 45 times a game. What was I supposed to do? Pass it into Chris Mihm & Kwame Brown?

Kobe Bryant (via nbaquotes)

Many people give Kobe a pass for being abusive towards his teammates during those years, both on the court and in the media. I get why. His best years were wasted. But was it really a situation he couldn’t control?

After all, LeBron took Cleveland to the NBA Finals in 2007 by passing to Larry Hughes and Drew Gooden…

Kobe’s approached helps highlight just how bad his teammates were. Don’t let them touch the ball until you need them to bail you out, putting already incapable players in nearly impossible scoring positions. 

LeBron took the different and instead of shutting off his teammates, he shared with them not just when it was convenient for him but when it was best for his teammates. And that approach got his team into the Finals. 

It’s easy to give Kobe a pass for those years, especially when he tried his best to make his own teammates look terrible.
