AI refused to come off the bench... he could've got a spot in a bunch of places if he peeled back his ego
still my 2nd fav player ever
Wasn't that Memphis trying to put him on the bench in 09?
At 33 I would have rejected coming of the bench too behind 2nd year Conley ...
Kobe won't take a bench position now def wouldn't have at 33 ...but I get your point
