Why does Kobe get to take almost twice as many shots as Bynum/Gasol combined?

Kobe 3-21FG (14% - 11 points), Bynum and Gasol 18-24FG (75% - 40 points) and they win by only 3.

I'm not poking fun or trying to be overly critical, but why should a guy shooting 41% take almost the same amount of shots as 2 big men shooting 50% and 58%? Why is that okay?

BQ: If proper utilized, could you see Bynum and Gasol being almost as effective as Robinson/Duncan were, especially since there are no real bigs in the league?

Update:

LOL, who said anything about Lebron?

Excuse the typo, Bynum/Gasol 15-24.

    Unfortunately, Laker fans will never acknowledge the fact that Kobe is a ball hog. He does no wrong in their eyes. Of course he's been the BEST in the league for many years, but his fans are the ones you can't take seriously. Kobe is known to not pass the ball when he feels that his team isn't playing the way they should. As they were trailing to NO, he felt the need to hold onto the ball. Kobe fans understand this. However, people like you and I still wonder why the more consistent shooters aren't getting more touches! If they were, they wouldn't have been trailing in the first place. But if there is a loss, its everyone else's fault. when he's shooting well, its his greatest attribute. When he's not, its better to just bench the whole team and save their time and energy.

    Also, Kobe is trying to break more records before his time in the league is up.

    It's because of Mike Brown's coaching system. He just allows Kobe Bryant to take over their offense. Mike Brown should utilize his big mans properly in order to have a nice offense. Ramon Sessions should make a better job in distributing the ball to everyone efficiently. But, when it comes down to the 4th quarter you couldn't trust anyone but Kobe Bryant.

    Are you retarded? How is taking 21 shots TWICE as many shots as Bynum/Gasol combined when they took 24? LOL.

    Because Kobe is still the face of the franchise, the superstar he will get most of the shots
