Shaq knows it too, Kobe's a punk bitch!

    When Shaq was with Orlando, I actually liked him and rooted for him. When he went to LA, I began to hate him. Even though I rooted against him and for the Pistons, I have some respect for him now that he's calling out Kobe for being a little bitch.

    Kobe will be playing BB in the prison league soon. :wink2:

    What a joke. This is what's wrong with the NBA these days. Letting a player run the team is not going to win you championships. Kobe is very overrated in my book. I hate it when people compare him to Jordan.... once he can learn to play defense then the two can be compared.

    Kobe has Jordanesque ability around the basket and the clutch, last-second shot ability...but that is where the comparison ends IMO

    Apparently, he wasn't raised under "grammar" though.
  7. Kobe gets better as the pressure gets greater. I think he should go to San Antonio, that team would be sick.

    I am glad to see them break up, I will be curious to see what happens to each of them for the rest of their careers.

    Kobe is only 25, if I had to build a franchise around him or shaq, I would choose Kobe, btw, no way does he get found guilty. There are so many wholes in that case it is not funny, I will bet the farm on it.

    Does anyone know how the Lakers performed when Kobe plays and Shaq does not as opposed to Shaq playing and Kobe not ? I'd like to see if the team plays better one way or another.

    Kobe is a great player, but he's a damn ball hog. Sure, he can pass it around when he puts his mind to it, but you can see he's built to be a gunner. He may lead the league in scoring when Shaq leaves, but he won't win a thing when he's the whole show.

    Outside of MJ, even in today's NBA, I don't think you build the franchise around a guard. Kobe may be 26, but he's looking at 3 to 5.

    You can build around a guard who makes his teammates better, like a Jordan or an LBJ. Not so with guards like Kobe and Iverson who just dribbble and chuck the ball all the time.

    You're right, I should've included LeBron as an exception, along with Kidd, although he's getting a little long in the tooth. They say the kid possibly coming out, Livingston, may be another. Not Kobe, however.

    Kobe has 2 choices (supposing he stays out of the slammer). One, go to a good team, where he'll have to "share" the load like he does now, or two, go to a bad team and be a great player on a team going nowhere. I don't think he likes either option, and he certainly doesn't want to be out of the Laker limelight.

    Yeah, I forgot about Kidd, that's another. The point is though, these guys rebound and pass the ball. Kobe just fires away.

    Has (how many) triple doubles has Kobe had? To me, that stat would be one of the primary indicators as to whether to build around a guard.
