Agreed. He does have his lapse but for the most part, he doesn't gamble much and he usually stay in front or always putting his arm or body on the player.

Kobe is just not deserving of a roster spot. Point blank. 16 ppg on 30 percent shooting.

Pretty sure the amount of players playing better than that exceeds 12.

you can look up that roster and see if a C team is acceptable

Alright, so you'll bet me then?

 

I have no clue what is going to happen between now and the Olympic games.. a lot can happen

yea lets stretch this out forever to make that SIMPLE POINT incorrect foh fam

I know the argument is that Kobe should get that 12th man spot because of his name. The problem is he's not going to want 12th man minutes. That's just not his nature.

He's not down to take a backseat to anyone. He'll fight his mortality till he dies.

Just look at how he's playing during his last year. He is literally going down shooting. laugh.gif

I don't doubt that's exactly what he thinks will happen when if he plays for team usa

The reality might be something different. This is exactly the problem.

Anyone know what's the record for worst shooting percentage in one Olympics?

Hopefully D Rose can keep up his defensive play. Lord knows he 's not exactly doing it on the offensive end. Lol.

Never underestimate though. A bronze medal in the past should prohibit arrogance. I can understand if we won nothing but gold, but we didn‘t.

I think the respect for international players are there, but the whole, this is automatic is what cost us.

Preparation, competition, and the desire to collectively win trumps all, including individual pride.

Drose double vision and some icey XI darkwing mask looks stupid though

So are you for or against Kobe going? I couldn't tell lol

It's not even about role, it's about giving him the chance to go because he's earned it. With his NBA accomplishments as well as what he did in 2008 to pretty much win the Gold medal game for them at the end

He earned whatever he has already received.. If anyone should get the spot it's Duncan, who can still justify a role on any team

Role players have specific roles, what exactly is kobe's?

I think a young up and coming guy should be given the spot.. Like harden on the 2012 team
bronze metal Duncan should be deported

Lol, here goes the name calling

You really calling me a Kobe stan? Of all players, Kobe. Don't know why you're getting so emotional over this 

Im not gonna blast this post or anything but you must be a rich kid from the burbs to call him emotional.

All this Kobe talk ...

LoL

I wonder how many of you after sitting almost two years (none active) would come back just as strong at that age?


Is like you stop running for a while, you can't just go back to running the same without getting your lungs back.

Or turning in a fastball just as quick ...

Etc etc ...

I will judge Kobe after the year is done.

Just like all the LeBron haters that get super exited when they lose on regular season to be heart broken when thY see him in the finals. Long race fellas ..

sigh, this kobe talk is getting boring

post #26006 of 93193
let's chill on the Kobe topic & talk about how washed Paul Pierce is

NY Knicks | NY Jets | NY Yankees

 

"When I die I want the Knicks/Jets to carry my casket so they can let me down one last time"

Kobe already took a back seat on offence in 2008 and 2012, not sure why people think he's going to play the same way he plays NBA basketball

Everyone is an emotional hater right now
