win hog (win' hawg) noun. A player who will do anything and everything it takes to win a game, even if it means hogging the ball, disregarding the coaching staff, and alienating teammates, and especially if it means scoring lots and lots of points.

Usage example: Kobe didn't take 64 shots last night because he's a ball hog. It's because he's a win hog.

Word History: The term "win hog"
was coined by Kobe Bryant in response to the criticism leveled against his iron-fisted domination of the Lakers offense. Said Kobe: "I [won't] sacrifice wins by holding myself back to give teammates chances that they are not taking advantage of."
