It's even more rare to see him in games such as last game against Utah where he completely lets the flow of the game sway him into a more balanced role. Threepeat and 2008 Kobe could do that just a little better.
We will see if he can sustain this approach as the season gets closer to the end.
This is pretty much how I feel, Kobe is talented in all of the skills of basketball, but he's never been a natural playmaker. He always appears to make his mind beforehand if he wants to pass or score, and he doesn't often make the decisions instinctively how someone like Lebron does for example.
