Wtf is this guy doing in practice? Air air air air air. Never seen ANY professional play this bad. It's like he's trolling with this ****

He's not taking any good shots or open shots. If he did, and he easily could, he'd be decent. Right now, everything is off the dribble, with a hand in his face, heavily contested since he can't get by anyone and no one is biting for his pump fakes.

This has to be some sort of social experiment. I refuse to believe someone could keep chucking like this after playing ball their whole lives. Taking volume into account, this is easily the worst year I've ever seen from a professional atblete. It's hilarious though.

kobe is the last link to the height of the jordan era. no one else left

 

last three years have been uneasy to watch kobe's career come to an end. it doesn't seem right to end it this way, but he's done

 

kobe the GOAT to me though. at his peak, i always preferred his style of play & pure basketball ability over any other player ever

This. I actually thought with him announcing his retirement that he'd scale back some, but he went out there and shot 4-20.

And I do think those does put somewhat of a dent in his legacy. All of the others were washed and took a backseat or they had their minutes reduced. This dude still trots himself out there to play 35 minutes and shoots his teams out of games.

Yeah he's still the 2nd best SG of all time but still

There's another dude still in the league who goes even further back, to Magic Johnson's comeback season:

 

 

He even guards Magic in a 1-on-1 iso at the 3:12 mark. I wish KG could play just another season so that he alone would have the record for most seasons played in the NBA. :(

There's one other relic from the Jordan era still hanging around...

I think he still has one 35-40 shot game left in him laugh.gif

I think the better question is will kobe ever shoot over 40 percent for a game this year?

Dirk is the only dude left from that era that is still putting up numbers on nightly bases. Dude could easily play another 3-4 years at this level.

I guess you didnt see the game where he got no rebounds lol

His time will come. You will probably start to see a heavy decline next year.

His young stallions are keeping him going right now

I always thought that Allen Iverson was going to play longer then he did. I wanted to see a 40 year old Iverson vs a 37 year old Kobe smh.

If Kobe could be like Duncan and accept a diminished role, become more of a mentor type and become more of an opportunist scorer he could still be valuable for any team and last more seasons in the NBA.

His mind still wanna be the alpha but his body won't let him though lol
post #23303 of 93193
I think it's more giving the reigns over to one of the more dominant players in the league combined with accepting what Kawhi is in his career and where he (Duncan) is in his career more than anything.
post #23304 of 93193
I'm sure he wouldn't mind that role but like you said it's the body. Kobe not even able to get out of bed a lot of times and barely walking the next day. Ice bath after ice bath. The body recovery time in your late 30s is not as easy as it use to be. 20 years of professional ball is a major toll for anybody. #respect

This. He has no chill. He has more ego than smarts unfortunately.

It some ways I respect that Kobe won't go out like Duncan.

Duncan is older than Kobe and is way more productive than him even in a "diminished" role

The end of Duncan's career>>Kobe's

Just off of Kobe getting hurt repeatedly

Free agents refusing to come and play with him

And then this sorry season. It's just sad.

Seriously laugh.gif

Duncan's going out gracefully while Kobe's out here embarrassing himself on a nightly basis laugh.gif. Where's the honor in that?
