You have pointed out a fact. If you are playing a team game, everyone should have his role. Like PG should lead in assist in the team. Durant averages less assists than Kobe, it's not because he is an awful passer. I think you should realize that Kobe holding the ball is far more longer than any player in the league. Kobe is our true PG since Shaq left the team. Fans are just blaming Chucks, parker, Fisher...every Lakers PG. They never know Kobe has taken over their jobs. If Magic Johnson is not holding the ball and making plays, will he be the Magic ?
Ridiculous argument based on a lack of knowledge about the Triangle offense and the ineptitude of the point guards that Kobe has played with. Durant is a SF and Kobe is a SG. Neither is a PG, so if I expect them to average similar assist numbers how is that unreasonable? And if I therefore compare those numbers that should be similar and show that one player is assisting more than another how is that unreasonable?
Heck, for that matter why is it okay for you to compare Durant's scoring but not his assists? Probably because you have an obvious anti-Kobe agenda.
