LeBron James: Kobe Bryant Is Still A Scorer Despite Big Assist Numbers

By Jose Martinez, Complex Sports

Kobe Bryant the distributor here to stay? LeBron James doesn't think so. Following Miami's 111-89 win over the Los Angeles Clippers, James discussed his team's upcoming match-up with the Los Angeles Lakers and the new pass-happy Bryant. When asked whether his newfound love for dishing the rock is a sign of things to come for the Black Mamba, Bron Bron expressed his doubts.

“Do I buy that? No. He told you all before, he’s a scorer, he’s said it everyday – I’m a scorer, this is what I do. So I don’t buy the distr- no. You guys buy it though. I see how you are all Kobe 49 assists in 4 games, whatever, you guys go crazy about that. I don’t buy it though, he’s a scorer. He told you all that.”

If Kobe finds out about this quote, we would not be at all surprised to see him dish out like 20 assists on Sunday. KB loves a challenge.
