Not my words, those bad boys are straight from the mouth of Alvin Gentry. Frankly I agree with him.
Ive never been one to agree with the Kobe G.O.A.T. theories but god is he making a damn good case. It seems like he takes the most contact out of any Gaurd in the league, he plays injured every game, he crushes spirits every single year (Nash, Stoudemire, Hill, Kidd, Nowitzki, Terry, Williams, Boozer, Iverson, Anthony etc.) have all been completly demolished by Kobe. He is the most competitive athlete in the world and hits contested shot after contested shot after contested shot. He does what Lebron cant do, everyone knows what hes gonna do, they know how to gaurd it, they play perfect textbook d, and he drills his shot...
Also he's not slowing down for anyone LA still has an amazing nucleus for a while. Gasol is very well conditioned and seems to be a player whos decline wont appear until his mid 30's.Bynum is still a very young Center and when Artest reaches the end of his career they will undoubtedly find another wing to replace him like they always do.
Im not gonna dare say Kobe Bryant is better than Michael Jordan but...
kobe's shot was absurd...alvin gentry was smiling because at that point there was nothing else he could have done
Has anyone ever seen anyone make that shot in that kind of situation that way that many times other than MJ?
I been saying all year if anybody game is comparble to jordan its kobe he's the best player in the league i dont care what u lebron fans say he's the best he add moves to his game every summer he wont to be the best and he want stop to he is he is 31 and he still plays like he 25 and i hope he gets his revenge on the celtics
everybody forget he airballed the game winning shot the game before. not michael.
he has one finals mvp. he finally doing something without riding shaqs back
shot 40% against the celtics last time he played them in the finals pathetic not michael
THANK YOU LEPPY...
Everyone is on his di-ck today because of a shot he sit with 50 seconds left yesterday...But he airballed a gamewinner in game 5 and NOBODY mentioned it...AT ALL
Heres the thing with Kobe, people only remember the clutch shots he makes but we erase the misses out of our mind...For every gamewinner he has made he has missed two times that....He is not some clutch Jesus that doesn't miss ANY clutch shots...
No One i mean no one can in the league right now can do what kobe does.
HE AVERAGED 33PPG 7.4 RPG And 9. 6 APG That is not a Hog, but the best player in the game.
Who else would take those shots? Kobe.
I think I remember Phil saying how similar kobe & jordan were but Jordan always tried to take the easiest shot as possible. This gets kobe in trouble sometimes (bc we all know he likes to dance with the ball), but there is not another guy in the league who would attempt/hit these shots.
Only person I could see close to hitting these shots is melo.
kobe is the best in the game right now but its hard to say because lebron doesnt have kobe's team.
lets hope he doesnt shoot 40% against the celtics again huh laker fans
Kobe doin work, what's new?????? "Best player by far, I don't even think it's close" Alvin Gentry.
Lehype can have those regular season MVP's. We all know who the best is, even Lehype knows it.
if you're going to compare lebron to anyone it has to be magic, in my opinion
Lehype kids are always hating as usual LMAO, YOU KIDS DON'T UNDERSTAND BALL. You Kids are brainwashed by the media to think that Lehype is the best. What players say Lehype is the best????? Paul Pierce? Coincedence? I will be at the parade in June on Figueroa. 7 NBA Finals apparences!!!!!! Soak that in Lehype kids, and the 2 Finals that we lost think about it, in 08 no Ariza or Bynum we had Radmonovich on Pierce enough said, in 04 against the Pistons Malone and Horace Grant were injured we had Slava Medvendenko playing big minutes against a hungry Raseed Wallace think about that. That's the only way Kobe doesn't win championships period. We have all the horses this time around and we are going to smash the Celtics. Lehype kids watch and learn how to score on Tony Allen and Ray Allen LMAO(Lehype 6'9 260 and was locked down by the 6'4 Tony Allen Wow!!!!).
I often disagree with what you say DNYCE, but I will agree with you that Kobe is the best player in the league. LBJ shouldn't be mentioned as the BP in the league until he proves himself in the playoffs. Kobe has more desire IMO, and even though he has more talent surrounding him, he still carries his team and especially in clutch moments throughout the game. Sure LBJ puts together great highlights and numbers, but he doesn't know when or how to pick and choose when to take over games like Kobe does. Its amazing that Kobe is still this good with all those years playing pro ball and is the best player in the league, better than these 20 some year old guys with fresh legs.
Not to mention Kobe is much more mature than LBJ. Personally, I think LBJ's maturity has declined since he entered the league, at least it comes off as that. Its embarrassing when he could he head and shoulders above any player in this league given his physical attributes.
1 finals mvp jordan 6
how many times has kobe led his team to the finals and won it all ..................... just once
I'm not a lehype kid. i'm a michael fan and all lehype needs is to win one championship to have as many finals mvps as kobe.
He's not that far away. Duncan, Shaq's careers are far more impressive than kobe's
DNYCE you can't talk about people not knowing ball if you honestly believe that Tony Allen shut down Lebron. It was their team defense which was absolutely ridiculous. He got by both Allens at will but they collapsed on him and took away his angles to the hoop as well as passing lanes inside. He was forced to kick the ball out and unfortunately his teammates could not hit shots. With that said he did settle too much for the shots they were giving him and he didn't do a good job of forcing contact. Boston plays amazing team defense when KG is healthy. They made Vince Carter look like a d-league scrub the last series. They also made Kobe look very average too couple years back but the Kobe dick riders want to forget about that. Theres no doubt Kobe is one of the 3 best SG's of all time along with the Logo and Jordan but to say that he is by far superior to Lebron is absurd. Kobe is playing with the most versatile forward and a big with the best all around offensive repertoire in the league. His team is vastly superior to the average players that surround LeBron. Lebron doesn't have all the moves that Kobe has but he is bigger and stronger and more athletic (even though Kobe's a freak, he's older now and a lot of miles). They are very close but I give the slight edge to Lebron, he just does more on the court than Kobe at this point.
DNYCE, WHy do you hate LeBron so much?
We all know LeBron and kobe is good, why cant they BOTH be Good?
Why do you have to hate one of them to be a fan of either one of them
Every time there is a post saying kobe is good blah blah blah somebody says LeBron is better,
and the other way round
You dont have to hate LeBron to like Kobe
DNYCE, if you actually got rid of your biases you could actually write something good.
Boston in 7... I cant wait for the Finals to start, its gonna be one of the best ever...
