Ok you need to stop saying kobe is one of the greatest post players.
Cant put him in the same breath in post moves with Wilt, kareem, shaq, hakeem, duncan, just to name a few. Who said anything about him being barnes. Kobe does not have the stamina to keep running aroung. Ala reggie miller, allen, hamilton. What im saying the ball cant stop with kobe. Ball needs to be moving around, its what steve does best. If you run what you indicate it will be the same crap as the last 2 years. 2nd round exit. Have to use pau and specially dwights pick n roll experties. Also nash ability to get into the paint, but to what you suggest is, post kobe up and get out his way. Or kobe play pg and find guys open. Thats nash's job and he does it better than kobe

kobe is one of the greatest post players hands down, this is not even up for debate. most guards are lost trying to defend the paint as well. he actually has far more post move than all of those guys with maybe the exception of hakeem.

just because kobe is posting up doesnt mean the ball has to stop with him, someone will be open. more often than not id rather have pau or dwight down low because kobe can stretch but you let success be your guide

kobes one of the best high-post players of all time.... and shaq IS one of the best post players ever,duh.

back to the topic at hand, tho. i saw kobe pass the ball back to steve nash ALOT during the practice vid, hell i saw kobe pass the ball back to Ramon Sessions alot during Ramons good REGULAR season stint with us. if Kobe let ramon bring the ball up and facilitate the Offense, im guessing he'll let Steve Nash do the same..
