The thing is - there is no apparent team leader.
No, Kobe is not a leader. A leading scorer does not make one the natural leader.
Well... instead of handling his business like man - Kobe attempted to deflect attention away from himself and towards a teammate. (VERY unleader and bitch-like.)
Like many New York Yankee teams - Jerry Buss imagined that a group of individual stars could come together to form a dynasty.
Didn't they learn anything from Coach K and his success in choosing members of his Olympic teams?
Coach K passed on bigger names in favor of a greater whole.
While still a Laker fan (Yet, I cannot stand Kobe.), it looks as though they will continue to build teams around Kobe and become only the second best team in their own city.
