Why would Dwight Howard want to help Kobe Bryant try and out do Jordan, so Kobe could try and be called the greatest player ever? Why would anyone want to help Bryant do something like that? That is all this is about. Kobe is hell bent on trying to out do Jordan, and will do anything to try and be in the conversation of best ever. No player worth his merit, should even want to try and help Bryant reach this goal. The only thing that would happen is that Kobe would get all of the accolades, no matter how horribly he plays.
During this championship run by the Heat, we've seen how the league is so much better off without Kobe Bryant, and how he wont be missed.
Good riddance, and I hope he never comes back.
Lol, well it appears we have to deal with him for at least another two seasons, smh!
I have no clue why other players want to go help him try (operative word) to out do Mike. It's super obvious what his ulterior motives are.

I think harden filled that passion this season and playoffs. Kobe overdue ?? but he still putting up better stat lines than 85% of the players in the league.
The game was def not fine when Mike left. Entertainment wise nor financially speaking.
Point is the game was fine when Shaq left la and retired just like it will be fine when bryant leaves (if he ever hurries up).

Doesn't make him great in my mind. Makes him look foolish and immature especially when he is hurting his team in the process. If he ever had to pick between his kids or passing Mike up in his accomplishments I guarantee he would have to consider which speaks volumes about this guy.

Basically but that's not true in Bryant's mind and that's all that matters to him.
I honestly feel (and hope) bryant ends his career something similar to how Mike started his career. Buckets after buckets L's after L's and barely making playoffs...
