i'm not trying to take away from kobe scoring 81 points. that didn't make him selfish. he made over 50% of his shots and obviously was the reason his team won that game. if you are shooting that high of a percentage, keep shooting. he had the second best scoring game ever and earned it with his shooting ability. yes he took 46 shots, but hell, he made 28 of them. if i could do that i would be playing in the nba. so hats off to kobe for THAT game but not for being an overall teammate. my stand on kobe proving how selfish he is hangs on the fact that he brought his team and the entire lakers organization down by forcing shaq out. instead of being talked about as a dynasty right now, the lakers are struggling to make the playoffs.

kobe is the most selfish player ever. isn't he the reason the lakers no longer have shaq??? that is selfishness and that is the reason he doesn't have a solid team around him. kobe doesn't want a solid team around him. he wants to be the only good player on the team. with shaq, he would still be winning championships but kobe is too selfish to share the spotlight. being a team player goes beyond the assist column. kobe no longer wants to be a part of a team, he wants to be an individual. he wants to score 81 points in a game so that people will talk about HIM and not his team. this is what HE wanted and what the lakers allowed him to do by trading shaq in order to keep kobe. so kobe, the lakers organization, and the lakers fan- enjoy the show.
