Kobe needs to stop playing selfish basketball

I understand what you have accomplished for yourself and for the laker fans, and I am wholeheartedly thankful for that.
Now, do you want another championship ring? Are you just about your personal achievements?
Well, we do want you to have one more ring if not more prior to your retirement. So hope you are on the same page...
Kobe, you need to stop hogging onto balls every single play on a half court set. We don't need Kobe of old who scored 81 points in a game; it is a disastrous recipe for losing.
The stats show, as we have another topic regarding to this, that if you score 30+ points, we are 1-9. Conversely, when you score 29 or less, we are 8-5. What does that tell you?
We need you to distribute! We, I mean the entire world, know that you are the best player in the universe and that you can score at will over any adversaries. 1vs2, 1vs3 does not matter because you are too good.
However, you will become greater than Michael Jordan if you start distributing and get everyone better and involved. And I know as a fact that you are more than capable of doing that.
We need a stat line of 20p-5r-7a-2s 15-19 shot attempts. This is our winning recipe. Believe me on this.
Go back to simple basketball instead of over dribbling. Quick and easy pick and pop with jamison or MWP as one example as you did with Josh Powell when we won recent championship.
I am utterly afraid if you will continue doing what you having been doing when Nash comes back.
If you ever read this, let me lay it plain and simple.
"LET NASH CREATE PLAYS AND YOU JUST TAKE OPEN SHOTS."
This is our new winning recipe.

If we somehow land Dwight Howard AND Nash (which is one of the biggest reaches I've posted, don't think that will happen), then yeah...I have no problem with it, because Howard won't allow anyone to take Nash off the dribble 30+ minutes a game.
You should reach more often

Bryant dropped 35 points, and seven assists, against the Thunder...and we still lost. Why did we lose? Kobe and Dwight did most of the work, but Durant and Westbrook dropped a combined 69 points...and Collison and Ibaka (the other two up front) had a combined 27 points, 13 rebounds, on 12-21 FG (57.1%) with very good defense on Jamison (who played poorly) and Jordan Hill (who was essentially irrelevant).
It's so difficult to post here right now.

Is that the reason we lose these games? There isn't one reason and it's not any one person's fault.
Greatness should be measured by ability to find a way to win. All I'm seeing is a person doing what he wants and and expecting everyone else to do the rest. Simmons may have been right...Kobe approaches the game and his teammate like they are there to serve him. That's not good.
This all coming from someone who has defended Kobe for most of his career, even through the rape charges. Having this much talent and not winning is inexcusable...great players find a way to win.

I'm seeing a player who expects everyone else to do their jobs...that includes the coaches.
Even MJ had players like BJ Armstrong, John Paxson, and Steve Kerr doing their part.
This team is the Kobe/Howard show with no coach
