The problem with people like you is that you dont' believe Kobe has any flaws, such as shot selection, ability to understand the flow of a game, leadership, efficiency, etc.
Not to say Kobe doesn't have flaws, because he obviously does, but he's imroved tremendously this year in the areas I've highlighted. He's finally maturing into a team leader, and it's definately showing in his game.
I also remember people (believe it was Loki) skoffing (spelled that right?) at the idea of Kobe shooting 48% and still scoring 25-30 point per game. Take a look at his stats.
