FAST FACTS: Players could not vote for a teammate.... No center received more than one vote.... According to 82games.com Bryant has hit 14 game-winning shots since the start of the 2003–04 season, fourth highest in the league -- but he also leads the NBA with 42 potential game-winners missed in that time.... James is first in game-winners made in that period with 17.
