Nice video, but its evidence used is not sufficient to complete the argument.

Part of the reasoning against Kobe shooting a high number of shots is that it doesn't allow the other teammates to get involved enough. If you don't feed the bigs, they get less engaged, and you will see this effect not only on offense but also on defense. Therefore, in order to address this reasoning, one would theoretically have to also present data on the relationship between Kobe's shooting frequency and both the shooting efficiency of other players and also the the defensive statistics of the Laker team. I'm not surprised that Kobe's shooting efficiency goes up as he shoots more. He is a bit of a volume shooter and sometime gets more in rhythm when he shoots more. But what happens to the overall team? We need other stats in order to complete the argument.

5 rings in 7 tries... not too bad for such a crappy and selfish player. Just Imaging how many championships guys like Fisher, Pau, Odom, Fox, Horry and Slava would have won if that self absorbed jerk hadn't been traded for....

The reality here is that there is no reason to critique a 35 year coming off a major injury if he's not successful..... do we care or does anyone create a video on whether Iverson shot too much?
