he had fisher and odom during the championship years to do the whole 'leadership' thing. he really doesn't have anybody on the team to do that right now. nash sure isn't going to step to kobe.

i hate to say it, but if the season keeps going this way, its going to be a huge stain on his legacy, despite the ridiculous numbers he is still putting up in his 17th year.
