"The first time I ever saw my uniform hanging in the locker I put it on right away, and it just felt like I was putting on golden armour. From that day forward, I just called it 'the golden armour', it just felt like there was something mystical and magical about it" - Kobe Bryant.
This is why Dwight Howard is not the best player on the Lakers. Dude is a horrendous FT shooter. Now, if he had Shaq's offensive game, then of course I'd crown him the best player and #1 option on the team immediately, but that's not the case. I know scoring isn't everything, and he is a beast defender, but that's not enough to crown him the best.
