Look at Kobe's reaction when he scored 81. He exhibited more disbelief than Michael Jordan would've shown if he had won the Best Actor Oscar for Space Jam. If Kobe cared about championships, he wouldn't have pushed Shaq and Phil Jackson away. He is thrilled to have a team that lets him shoot 46 times a game. Some people like being the best, and some people like being big fish in little ponds. Kobe is the latter.
And he rapes people.
