    He is such a selfish player. They play better without him. He should realize that he is no longer 25 and is no longer dominating. The only thing he cares now is beating MJ’s scoring record. What is he shooting now? 5-10 and 7 turnovers which resulted in a 20 point swing? Man’s got to know his limitations.
