The are MEDIA.

Not Kobe's personal propagandist. laugh.gif


If ANYTHING, Kobe is getting off light, he's mostly just getting made fun of but no ones really calling it what it is. One of the worst players in the league is using up 29% of his teams possession.

If any other player did this, they would drag him off the court kicking and screaming. laugh.gif

yeah but show me the one he hit right before that.



The wild thing for me is his aim is off. I mean he airballs like he was back in Utah...

but, he still gets decent lift most on shots, but his aim is off. Like, the muscle memory of depth and distance is gone. Like, Tiger Woods. These guys had the upmost elite aiming and accuracy, but then, injuries and accumulated time spent away from the court/fairway...you lose that talent. I see Kobe miss bunnies these days. He elevates, but the aiming is off. That's one of the things that hurts me the most to see as a fan.


People judge how hard it is for him to let go of who and what he was. Very few can ever say they were the best of their era, in the world. To be recognized by their peers as the current best. Or to know everytime you went out to do whatever it is that you do, that there is no one better. That is hard to let go of. I keep hearing all the, well I wish he could be like a paul pierce and Tim Duncan/Dirk. That's damn near blasphemous. As good as they are, with as many accolades as Tim has, They have never once felt that light that kobe had. They climbed high, but they never stood at the very top and looked down on everyone. Kobe had a lot of things he took from Mikes game, but dude was another one of those once in a lifetime talents. He, maybe more than anyone, showed the importance of hard work and honing your craft.

Lakers tho...

KD has become annoying when it comes to this stuff. I guess the media is only supposed to mention when he finally connects on one of those prayers.

I'm not here to argue about Kobe as a player but...

Don't let Kobe's retirment goad you into saying things that are contested opinions as if they are obvious facts.

it is not "blasphemous, you can very easily mount a logical argument against everything you just said, agree with it or disagree but to act like it isn't a point that is constatnly being disputed is just wrong.

I said this in the Lakers thread last night, but Randle is the key to what happens moving forward.

Your thoughts?
The PF position is the most important position in the league because it determines if your team runs the traditional 2 in-3 out or a 1 in-4 out offense. Clarkson is already showing increased range and Russell looks like a good shooter after adjusting to the longer line. So it's really up to Randle to improve his shooting to help out the team. More range means more space for the other players to operate and for himself. He won't even attempt to finish with his right hand, so hopefully the increased range helps. And his post moves are generally a struggle.

Defensively, he has good lateral quickness and challenges more shots than I expected, but his awareness like I expected is low. And that's fine for now since he just turned 21 yesterday. I wish he would look to make plays for others more, because he has the vision and skills necessary. Just a bit selfish to me. Or maybe it's because of Byron's offense is allowing him to iso any time he wants. Don't think he needs to bring up the ball as much as he does, better off just giving it to a guard and sprinting to the basket. Not enough shakes like Griffin to me to make it a regular part of his offense.

Wow, just stop man. Kobe has never "stood at the very top and looked down on everyone." That's just YOU stans thinking that. Hell, you guys put him RIGHT up there with MJ after his second ring.

One thing about this Kobe situation is that it's making it real easy to distinguish the Kobe fans from the actual Lakers fans.

They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can't be killed.

Okafor gotta chill lol

post #23480 of 93193
laugh.gif @ KD . I mean the guy was and is still playing terrible. Maybe the media wouldn't talk so bad about him if he decided to reduce his role as a player and take a reduction in pay. Now, he's being laughed at after every game because he's taking up the majority of the Lakers payroll on a lottery bound team, while having one of the worst seasons EVER for a NBA starter.

I didn't come here after hearing about Kobe's retirement. It looks like I missed a bunch of nonsense, though.

Nah man. No way does the 6-11 one and done guy on video games, basketball cards and Wikipedia goes and gets a fake ID.

That's gotta be from a satire site. He's not that dumb.

Man, he's an idiot.

Not for the ID...but for the fact that he's Jahlil Okafor IN Philadelphia and he's trying to use one. laugh.gif

Okafor doesn't feel like he got enough weight in Philly to get into clubs underage? laugh.gif

With the status of those Philly squads in every sport, he should be able to get in without an ID PERIOD laugh.gif

Not to mention, there's not too many bouncers who can't be persuaded by a little extra cash. Okafor's got the money for that.

the fact kobe got hit with the rape case in the prime of his career, hit rock bottom, stuck with it, won 2 more titles, repaired his image and made everyone forget is truly a testament to him as a player/person, this gets overlooked alot.

I couldn't imagine [ insert current NBA superstar here ] getting hit with a scandal of that same scale, coming back, winning titles, MVP's, public favor and wiping the slate clean.
