Ill give mad respect to Kobe if he takes a backseat and Ill be the first one to congradulate him, if not make a thread in his honour. This is where I think you will see if Kobe cares more about his own legacy more than the success of the team, time will tell.

"Taking a back seat" as in putting in less hard work and letting others like 40 year old Nash take the wheel?

I mean, guys. Kobe hasn't lost a leg or anything that I know of. He's still the top 5-7 player he's been since he led his team to two champs. Why would he possibly take a back seat to guys who've never made it to where he's been? He's always gonna be the leader of this team. He's been aging very well and is still the 2nd best scorer in the league, putting up the same old numbers.

If you understood the D'Antoni system you would understand why Kobe takes a backseat. The offense will be run through the best decision maker which is Nash, it's for the success of the team, don't look at it as if Kobe is no longer imprtant because he is.

The best offensive player is debateable now, Kobe takes more shots to score the same amount of points as Howard does and you could argue gasol is too. When I mean backseat, Im talking about the way the offense will be run. Kobe will be more utilised as a jumpshooter/slasher, more so than the go to guy for posting up and dominating the ball.

One sure could say that but why would he? It doesn't really make sense, plus it is incorrect.
