I would actually look at Kobe's assists as more impressive, simply because his teammates have had such horrendous shooting percentages (Kobe and Dwight are the only ones sporting TS%'s above .550, Blake bearly squeaking by the 500 mark, and Jordan Hill at .531, meanwhile, 5 of Miami's top 8 players based on minutes have a ts% above .550, with Wade and Battier being at .542). To simply brush kobe off because LeBron is getting better assists (6.1 to 4.7), and rebounding better (We have Gasol, Dwight, and Hill all gobbling more than 9 rbs per 36, Hill and Dwight are getting over 10. The Heat's center, to contrast is getting 8.3 per 36.) would be foolish.

Dammit, ESPN, the season's not even over! LeBron's scoring 2.5 points less a game, so there's the assist difference right there, even if their teammates were shooting at the same clip. So to say that LeBron is the clear cut favorite would be idiotic

Thanks for proving my point ESPNI'm actually a terrible stat reader, so don't really take this as an honest attempt to compare the two players. I have not watched any Heat games, so I don't really know how important LeBron is to the team, all I know is Kobe is so far OUR MVP
