Kobe had more assists, because he was a guard and had the ball in his hands a lot more. You know that. Pick any great SG... Kobe will average less assists. Pick any great PF... There are maybe two all time (KG and Webber) who got more assists than Barkley.

EDIT: In actual fact, Barkley could just have taken 11.2 more 3 pointers a game, made 25% of them, and he'd have had 37 points a game. Would that have made him a better scorer than Kobe? He'd have more points on better efficiency. Keen to hear your answer.
