He’s still taking 29 percent of his team’s shots, well ahead of second-place Carmelo Anthony (24 percent). But the Lakers guard can turn a phrase on an old topic. Baxter Holmes of ESPN: I asked Kobe a/b his many shots. Kobe: "I’d rather not have to do that, but you can’t just sit back and watch crime happen in front of you." — Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) November 17, 2014 This is the Kobe I know and love.
