Kobe Bryant the playmaker
Kobe Bryant said his constant film study of top point guards such as Magic Johnson, John Stockton, Oscar Robertson and Bob Cousy gave him a solid foundation on adapting to his new responsibility.
That involves playing more of a facilitating role and less of a scorer.
Bryant has averaged 11.2 assists while averaging 16.6 points on 48.4 percent shooting. Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said he hopes Bryant subtly changes his mindset.
