Default Does Anyone Care About Kobe Bryant?

This is the first time for me being in this section of Steelersfever....
Now, I am a longtime L.A. Lakers fan, but as of late I am starting to just think that the NBA is just a joke in my opinion. I have started to just get the feeling that I cant absolutely stand Kobe Bryant anymore. Who does this one guy wonder think that he really is? He Is No Michael Jordan that is for sure!! I just wanted to see what everyone or anyone else really thinks about Kobe saying that he either wants Jerry West back in LA as GM or he wants to be traded...

It's not just you, Kobe Beef has rubbed even the most loyal Laker fan the wrong way with his latest outburst. I won't question his ability, he's still one of the top 5 players in the league, but he's just another example of a selfish athlete who thinks that he's bigger than the game and his team. Reminds me of a spoiled little kid. Maybe Kobe will just take his ball and go home.

Yep...pretty much sums Kobe up to me.

Kobe: a microcosm of everything that's wrong with the NBA (and professional sports in general), and gets all the pub and adoration from the public for being a ball hog.

Tim Duncan: a microcosm of everything that's right with the NBA (and professional sports in general), but is ignored because he's "boring."

I used to be a big Kobe fan, but I've lost ALOT of respect for the guy since 04-05. If you wanna know why, read the book "The Last Season" by Phil Jackson. That book sheds a huge light on Kobe & the way he acts the way he does.....

If you wanna watch the way basketball should be played, watch guys like Tim Duncan, LeBron James, or Tracy McGrady.

Umm... nope. It's safe to say that I don't give a rat's ass about Kobe.

The fact is that Kobe has such a rare talent that he has all the stroke in the world. And I don't blame him for making these demands. Simple fact is LA has a choice to make. Either get West or lose Kobe. LA's front office is a shadow of what it use to be. It's a joke. They don't get it. As far as Phil Jackson is concerned, he's making $10 mil a season for exiting the playoffs in the 1st round. I do agree that Kobe is no Jordan....that he'll never be.
