It's amazing how much Kobe elevated his teammates.

This same guy was seen as the "MDE" just 2 years before
I guess there's a reason Kobe was the leading playmaker for 5 championship teams and is the 2nd best non-PG playmaker in history. Elevating everyone around him to greatness while playing within the flow of one of the most stat-restricting systems in basketball.
As opposed to forcing yourself to be the entire offense by holding the offense hostage in order to fraudulently force stats at the detriment of the strengths of your teammates and the detriment of the overall ball movement and flow of the team.
