“Here’s the thing: Some people are just very, very dumb. I keep hearing it from some people that I just want to score and that other stuff. Nobody has won more championships than me in my entire generation. I’ve got five of them. You can’t be selfish and win one championship, let alone five. That argument should be in the coffin by now. I don’t like having the ball.”                   – Kobe Bryant

In a previous post we had discussed whether or not Kobe would be able to adapt to the Princeton offense, which would put the ball in Steve Nash’s hands most of the time.

This quote for Kobe is more directed at those accusing Kobe of hogging the ball. If there was a ever a time that Kobe “hogged” the ball, I assure you it was out of necessity. He’s gone stretches of time where he had ZERO offensive help.

Kobe is not selfish, far from it. He knows what it takes to win a championship and now that he has more offensive tools at his disposal, best believe he will use them.
