Yes, LeBron is a better passer. That doesn't = Kobe is a bad passer as you suggested earlier. You're trying very hard to mix up the messages.
Kobe is capable of doing everything on a basketball court. He chooses to be a scorer, only occasionally deciding to be a facilitator.
LeBron is a better and more willing passer. Part of being a "better" passer is consistently doing just that. He makes great passes game in and game out. I'd be shocked if you found anyone in the game that wouldn't agree that LeBron is a better passer than Kobe.
