It seems most of Kobe Bryant's Turnovers
comes when he passes to Dwight Howard.
And the other team center pokes at the ball behind him.
Dwight Howard doesn't battle the position enough.

Threads with incomplete titles that are intended to get people to open the thread suck.

Analyzing Kobe's turnovers feels like analyzing Kareem's missed shots over his career. The body of work speaks for itself.

Kobe throws some bullet passes and some impossible ones too .. Some of them come out of nowhere so the receiver isn't prepared at all. It works well in Kobe's mind, but not in real life.

I agree that Kobe's turnover came from interior passing mistakes.

Interior passing, threading the needle with bounce passes, is a lost art. Phil Ford, Magic, Kevin Johnson, Bob Cousey, John Stockton, Oscar Robinson, Issiah Thomas all had the talent.

The current crop of NBA Players are pass-challenged. Lebron and Garnett are two that come to mind that can do it.

I would certainly not put Kobe Bryant on a list of great past or current passers. And if you aren't a passer, and don't have that skill set, then don't do it, except in practice.

I think Kobe gets it that he pass to pass more to win games. He may be trying too hard.

What about nash...

It almost seems to me that none of our guys can make interior passes, but

some of Kobe's passes come b/c he wants to get the assist more than the hockey assist. Some of them come from leaving his feet. Some of them are communication issuyes and some are just dumb passes.

But back to nash,

Kobe's and Dwight's turnovers all hirt us as much as anyone, but Nash's and pau'sjust seem soft.


I hate when Nash just gets stripped and he falls and it's a lay-up or when Nash throws in traffic and it's such a small window, that it seems like a DUMB mistake.

Or when Gasol makes the most obvious passes in the world or jamison, and they just hop the passing lane and get two or three easy points.
