All Kobe Fans and Haters ?
Question:Sorry for bringing up this subject again for all of you that are sick of it like i am.
Lets start out saying i do not hate Kobe as a person, basketball player or what not. Kobe is a very talented person probably the most SKILLED basketball player in the league today. I think so many people hate Kobe because of all the Kobe fans, talkin about hes better then MJ. Kobe fans, i know yall like him but stop trying to convince us he is the best player ever. I am the Biggest Iverson fan you will ever meet but you don't see me on here everyday saying Iverson the best dribbler, best passer, best scorer. If he is people will see, and dont need you to tell everyone. Stop taking away what Jordan has done, he is probably the most famous person in the world, because of what he did. You cant go to any country and say Jordan and people like who is he, it just doesnt happen. In conclusion if you have a fav. player good for you stick with them, but stop trying to convince us that thr the best!
minus Jordan being the most famous person in the world
-try saying Pele
other than that though...well done
i like him,he's my best player
Oh, and to the guy above me... wtf are you answering?
thanks yahoo...this is Fun!..I'm ignorant?..why because I believe Kobe is a better allaround player then MJ...I guess phil Jackson is Ignorant to!...because he even says Kobe is better...why would you want to call one of(if not)the greatest coaches ignorant!,,that's messed up!..oh well!..call Phil what you want...just make sure to Kiss the Ring's...
was again..I..I..mean once again ..
you prove you don't know sh!t about basketball.yawwwn...to easy!
Go Bulls, White Sox, Bears.
Now, being objective and without overt biases.(everyone has some bias)
Michael Jordan is a far superior player to Kobe Bryant without question. It's silly to argue that. If one likes Bryant more, that's fine. I like Craig Hodges more than both of them, but he was fortunate to play as many years in the league as he did. Saying Hodges is better than either of the two is like saying Brad Miller is better than Shaquille O'Neal. It's ridiculous. Miller is decent for sure, but he's no Shaq. True, I like Jordan more than Bryant, but that's no basis for my statement of Jordan being better. Magic Johnson was better than both Jordan & Bryant and I don't believe in Magic. Michael Jordan is absolutely one of the 10 best players of all-time along with Magic, Larry Bird, Tim Duncan and Oscar Robertson, but he's not the best. Bryant is more like top 50 to 100 players, but not top 10.
I'm sure some of you will question Duncan, but if know the history of the NBA, you have to bare witness to the truth.(your favorite and mine's are what they are, but history is best qualified to reward our research)
Duncan is boring, plain, doesn't jump particularly high and shoots poorly at times from the free throw line,(so did Wilt Chamberlain & Bill Russell) but you can't argue with the credentials. Every team that has won 3 or more titles (Mpls Lakers, LA Lakers, Bulls, Celtics, Spurs)during their run in the history of the league has had a minimun of 2 surefire hall of famers playing in their prime during that title season, except the Spurs, with Duncan leading the way all 3 times. (You could say David Robinson was in his prime in '99 [he wasn't, but you can say it] but he certainly wasn't in '03 and didn't even play on the team in '05.) How many really believe Manu Ginobili or Tony Parker are certain hall of famers? They very well may one day, but they aren't certain hall of famers as of 2007.
Duncan is certainly the best player in the league today.(sorry Dirk, LeBron, Kobe, Nash and D-Wade[though, you may be real soon] but when either gets 3 Finals MVP awards along with a couple of regular season awards like Duncan, Magic or Jordan, I'll take that into consideration. The only current player one can say is better than Duncan is "SHAQ'. He does have one more ring than Duncan, along with 3 Finals MVPs like Duncan. However, Shaq(no longer in his prime, while Duncan still is) needs another regular season MVP to equal Duncan and we're talking individual accolades. Duncan will win anothr playoff MVP before Shaq wins a regular season award. Dirk will get a regular season MVP this year, so he along with Nash(2 regular season MVPs) and D-Wade(All-NBA and a playoff MVP) get some credit, though Wade gets a little more because he did it in the playoffs.(more important) However, please spare me the Kobe and LeBron talk. They don't have any REAL MVP's of any kind.(all-star games don't count. Hell, Glen Rice, Randy Smith & Ralph Sampson have all-star MVP's)
Truthfully, I don't care about the Spurs, Mavericks or Suns too much. If my team doesn't win, I'd prefer to see teams that haven't won before win. I'll enjoy seeing Phoenix or Dallas win this year, but neither will. Why? For the same two reasons no team other than the Heat, Lakers or Spurs(..save Detroit '04) have won a title since Jordan left the Bulls in '98.
NO SHAQ, NO DUNCAN, NO RING!
Seven out of eight years, this has been the case. This year won't be much different. I'll even put it out here now...
The 2007 NBA Finals will be....
The Miami Heat vs. The San Antonio Spurs.
NO SHAQ, NO DUNCAN, NO RING!
I really hope the Bulls shock everyone(me included) and win the title. I would enjoy saying..
The 2007 NBA WORLD CHAMPION CHICAGO BULLS!!
