Sure. I'll get right on that.

I would mention that Kobe's "mentorship" helped drive Dwight out of LA, but you'll just tell me that doesn't count because Dwight is a weak-minded ***** with no heart. (Which I probably wouldn't argue with).

Its a pretty fun shot to shoot. Not that I'm posting anyone up at 5'8", but I spent some time practicing it one day and something about it just feels good to shoot.
I'm not proud to say I've pulled the Dirk fadeaway in pick up games. On girls. laugh.gif

Also while we are on this subject, i have always found it funny that Kobe is the selfish one, and Lebron is the quintessential "make everyone better" player

If you look at boths track record with All star caliber players, Lebrons game has actually been more detrimental to his super talented teammates, while Kobe has elevated the games of the super talented guys he's played with. Lebron is head and shoulders better at creating opportunity for mediocre players, but as far as actual all star caliber players i'm not sure his game has ever proven beneficial to one outside of Boozer maybe ?

dwight never saw kobe as a mentor, he was delusional enough to think that it would be "his team" and spent the whole season upset at everyone respecting kobe more than him.

 

he had issues with steve nash

 

he had issues with dantoni

 

all the other guys saw kobe as the leader

 

 

his walnut sized heart could not take all that stress

Agree with the sentiment that Kobe played better with All-Stars. Lebron ruins PF's man laugh.gif

And when did Westbrook start having this reputation as a poor decision maker? Whenever I watch him play, he seems to usually make the right plays.

Kobe Tour: 12EST

Lebron makes spot up shooters better. But marginalizes anyone who can create for themselves ej. Chris Bosh, Kyrie, etc.

maybe since he's entered the league? i don't think it ever changed.

back when bynum was in his prime and just starting to get his confidence mike brown drew up a play for kobe for a GW but kobe told him that they were going to give it to bynum for the win :hat

How exactly are you a poor decision maker, when you are second in the L in assist, meanwhile you play with another superstar who is also Iso'd a lot. Russ has dramatically improved on his decision making over the past two seasons. However at times he does what all other superstars do and takes some tough contested shots.

Overall tho he's far from being a guy who should be known for making the wrong decision.

yeah lol RW makes bonehead decisions all the time but his talent and athleticism covers up for them. dude's the king of making the most boneheaded plays when there are 6 mins or less left in the game.

idt it's hard to avg as many assists as he does with the thunder talent level and him having the ball in his hand 90% of the time.

kobe was hella immature back in the day, but he's grown up and learned how to be a great leader

 

cant keep sticking to 10 year old narratives, just like last month I think we were playing OKC when dlo and clarkson were keeping us in the game so kobe told byron to not sub him in so the kids could build confidence

He was shooting that Dirk one-legged fadeaway a couple seasons ago, but I haven't really seen him do it this year.

way too talented to be floating on the outside
back down and flip it over the shorter guys. doesnt have to be fancy or flashy in the post, look at kawhi.
