Kobe Bryant Says He Isn't a Ball Hog, He's a Scorer | Robert Littal Presents BlackSportsOnline

Kobe Bryant: “I Rather Shoot Than Pass, That’s Just How I Am”

Next time someone says “Kobe shoots too much” just refer them to the following quotes from Bean himself.

“I like shooting,” Bryant said. “I don’t care how it comes. I like putting them up. It doesn’t matter how it comes. I’m being honest.”

“I wouldn’t say I’m a ball hog. I’m a shooter,” Bryant said, continuing with his 20-minute postgame media session when he described his love for scoring points the way a millionaire describes every one of the dollars he has made. “I don’t necessarily hog the ball, but I put them up though.”

“I definitely much rather shoot it than pass it. That’s just how I am.”

“I’m a scorer, man. You don’t get 30,000 points without knowing how to put yourself in positions to shoot it. The ball just finds scorers and I can always, no matter what system you’re in, you can always find a way. Getting up 30 shots ain’t easy. A lot of people don’t know how to do that.”

“That’s what I do. It’s like superheroes. Superman can fly. Spider-Man has webs. Steve [Nash] can pass. I shoot. … I get ‘em up! I make no bones about it. That’s what I do. That’s what I do. Some nights they fall, some nights they don’t. But, [Dennis] Rodman was a rebounder, Coop [Michael Cooper] was a defender, I’m a shooter.” With that, he added a laugh.

Love Honest Kobe.
