Default Re: Kobe gets hated for this Bird doesn't??

The main reason I think that there are more scoring outbursts is because of how guard dominated the game is now. It is nothing rare to see a player dribble and hold the ball for a good chunk of the possession, and score on his own. What I mean is that more players have a green light to shoot whever than back then. Teamplay is far below what it used to be.

I agree with you there. There are other reasons, but that's an important one too.

you would also agree that Kobe isnt one of the players that does this. He might shoot a lot but he doesnt take a lot of time with the ball in his hands to get those shots off.

Not as much as guys like Arenas or Lebron, no. But still (on average) more time than guys like Jordan or Bird. He keeps improving that aspect of his game, though, you're right. A year or two ago he was much worse in that regard.
