How would that be being desperate? The starters obviously don't need him. Noone is denying is greatness. Manu is willing to accept that role even though he could average more. But he knows it is for the good of the team. I thought Kobe was willing to do what it takes to win? He did say that right? I wouldn't think any less of him if he lifted the bench into greatness. In fact it would make me feel much better about this season.
