Player who takes all the shots himself. One man team. Shoot first - pass second
A lot of people think Kobe Bryant is a ball hog. Look at his team. What can he do? He unfortunately is sometimes a ball hog, but it's for the greater good.

Usually in basketball. A player who keeps the ball for themselves, never passes to a team mate, always takes the shot themselves or always calls plays for self to shoot. Never rebounds, never picks, never draws the defense away from a play.
