"Taking a back seat" as in putting in less hard work and letting others like 40 year old Nash take the wheel?
I mean, guys. Kobe hasn't lost a leg or anything that I know of. He's still the top 5-7 player he's been since he led his team to two champs. Why would he possibly take a back seat to guys who've never made it to where he's been? He's always gonna be the leader of this team. He's been aging very well and is still the 2nd best scorer in the league, putting up the same old numbers.
