  • Paul Pierce just told y'all they had 4 allstars and Kobe and Pau was the Lakers only 2 allstars and he told y'all that Kobe toughened Pau up because he was soft but even through all of that Boston had 4 allstars and the Lakers only had 2 allstars... Now if that was Bron the media would be glorifying him to know end and Paul Pierce was speaking facts but he gets called a hater 4 telling the truth now that's FACTS 💯!!!!!

    • @J C and MJ has two hall of famers and better all around teams and pretty much matched up against slow non athletic white dudes in the finals. Pippen and Rodman would always guard the toughest matchups allowing Jordan to rest on D. Kobe stole a lot of hall of famers moves. Magic’s, Reggie’s, Hakeem’s among others. Jordan stole his moves from other’s as well.

  • Still baffles me that the media don't have Kob in the top 5. For me, as Kevin durant said MJ is 1A and Kob is 1B. Me being from the UK, no one since MJ transcended basketball more than Kobe. He was as big as some of our top football (soccer) players here. And is always mentioned in the goat conversations in our goat conversations. Seems like some of the US media personalities (such as Nick Wright) have pushed their agendas against kobe to such an extent that in some debates he might not even be mentioned in the top 10 debate. Completely delusional. Rest in paradise Kobe ❤️ There will never be another

Dwade relied heavily on his athleticsm, he was a slasher, never really had a consistent jumper, but wade played great defense, pp never had much defense... And then wade joined lbj to create a legit superteam. When kg, pp, ray got together, they were clearly on the downhill of their career.

Players respected him, now since players are into media, this truth is coming out. You are always with us Kobe.

The least charismatic and least "team player" who is overrated because of his stats. He's usually the 1st option on any team, so of course, he will score the most. But, when it counts in the playoffs, he is inconsistent

  • We say Lebron has high basketball IQ because of his passing and general ability as a floor general. Kobe’s IQ has to be the highest for scoring Which is why when they joined up in 08 for the Olympics, it was no surprise they redeemed that

    Jon PoonJon PoonАй мурун
    • Kobe's IQ was going way behond just scoring... he studied the WHOLE aspect of the game. His IQ was victory oriented ! Listen Rajon Rondo talking about hit. Just for a reminder, Rondo is known to has one of the highest IQ in the League.

      Ralph TankRalph TankАй мурун
    • @S Wavey you spot something bro, I think the same bro. I'd add that I can't believe that with all his IQ he stills lacks fundamentals (especially at the begining if his career), you can see him travelling going to the rim or just after catching up the ball, or bad hand selection for examples... Another point is the fact that he always need the ball and can't really adapt to different coach's system. Since we talk about Kobe, his IQ was on another level according to Lakers staff. One of them tell a story about how Rajon Rondo were the only player in their squad after collective training who'll spend tons of hours reviewing videos and systems about the game and he added that the last one he saw doing the same was....Kobe. (Sorry for my bas english, just a french nba fan passing by)

      Ralph TankRalph TankАй мурун
    • I think Lebrons IQ is overrated, I’m not a hater I just think he’s always passing when he needs to be more aggressive. Everyone hates George hill for missing that layup but Lebrons the best scorer on the team, he should know when it’s time to take over
