What should be asking is why when kobe not shooting well does he lose intensity... he only plays hard when he scores... If he is missing then he starts walking up and down the court doesnt bother trying to run the offense no longer gets on his teammates...
Laker fans will NEVER acknowledge this. Kobe quits on his team often. It's exactly like you said, if his shot isn't falling and his teammates are struggling, he just quits. At least Lebron will rebound, be a playmaker and play defense if his team is down
