When the guy in charge of running the team and distributing is hoisting them up and missing, it puts the team in a funk. No one else gets a feel for the game by getting a lot of touches an people start just standing around. To his credit, he averages a good amount of assists but I think he needs to become a more efficient offensive player and cut down on the shots for the team to realize its full potential.
westbrook is still a peon when it comes to mind games. russell obviously wanted to "out kobe" kobe and kobe ironically turned into what russell westbrook should be
and eeked out a win.
its fun seeing kobe become a distributer, but then again its also fucking
when you realize that kobe's doing this just now.
i hope it lasts and kobe finally adds this wrinkle to his game to extend his career even further, but like wife beaters and heroin addicts people will usually eventually go back to their nature regardless.
