So the offense dictated Kobe's shoot first mentality? Wow.
LeBron was being compared to Magic in high school for his ability to see the floor and pass the ball. He was criticized early in his career for deferring too much; everyone wanted him to score more. I'm quite certain there's never been a day in Kobe's life where someone had to prod him to shoot the ball more.
