That's not true.
That's what I was getting at -- in the last 9 games, they were averaging 20-25+ touches a game. You were saying that doesn't happen when Kobe was around. I was trying to show you it does, even when Kobe explodes like he did against Portland for 47.
But I generally agree with your post. We should go into the bigs.
That being said, I wish Dwight was a skilled enough player to get 30/15.
Maybe not "untrue" but certainly "skewed" when you consider the times, especially for Dwight, where they are fouled while shooting or first to keep them (him especially) from shooting, or outright stripped of the ball once in their possession, don't count toward potential shot attempts. So "shot attempts" can often be very misleading. Just again pointing out what many others have said here numerous times. So what is your real "magic number"?
