He's doing fine.
There's a certain limit. He really blew the last play imo when he spent the entire clock trying to get Kobe the ball instead of either getting his own shot or finding a better one. Instead we got a 28 foot chuck from Kobe with 2 seconds on the shot clock. If we got something better on that play we may have had a chance to win the game. I just don't like seeing the same predictable offense being ran down the stretch when we have a guy like Nash on the team. Defeats the purpose of having him.
Yeah maybe there is a unspoken rule that in crunch time, the ball goes to Kobe. I mean, it does, and has continued to in the Post Prime Gasol/Kobe Era.
