the lakers only made the move to get pau cause they had the opportunity to drop an over paid stiff, some other stiffs & 2 late first rounders and a future question mark.....for one of the top 10 players in the nba. This assured they would be in title contention for years.... If they failed to make the deal, they would have been considered the biggest idiots in the entire world of sport and possibly then hire eric to be gm.
How about this stat? Kobe, 5 championships. Lebron, 0 championships.
Like Jordan, Kobe has that killer instinct. Lebron does not have the same mentality, which is why he'll never be the best. Actually, he might be the best Scottie Pippen ever, no killer instinct and no desire to take the big shot.
Read what i wrote. Lebron IS the best player in the game. You cant deny it, stats prove it. Kobe plays on the best team in the game.
And I believe your mistaken about your statistic.
Volume shooter - 2 rings.
Kobe and Lebron both have the tools to be the best player in the league. One thing I think Kobe has that Lebron needs to work on is that ice water in your veins killer instinct. Have you ever heard Kobe say he no longer has the pressure to score 30 points a game? Have you ever seen Kobe just give up in a playoff game like Lebron did vs Boston? I used to be a huge Lebron fan, but his antics and how he went about "The Decision" have really changed my opinion about him. I'm not really a huge NBA fan to begin with, I'd rather watch NCAA ball first.
"Have you ever seen Kobe just give up in a playoff game like Lebron did vs Boston?"
um, game 6 vs. the celtics in 2008.
i don't think he gave up in that game. i think the celtics just played damn good defense on him. if anything, it was against the suns a few years back when he gave up in game 7. after that series is when he had his tantrum demanding to be traded.
true Joe. I think the entire lakers gave up in that game six. I could not remember the year he gave up against the suns, so I did not mention that. that was horrible. I believe that was the same year the suns got screwed by a couple of stupid suspensions for leaving the bench after Nash got clotheslined by someone.
Looks like the Jazz are close to getting Al Jefferson... That would be VERY good news.... Still a lack of interior D, but some size and scoring....
Would be surprised if the match the Portland offer for Wes Matthews.... In fact, I am not sure why Portland offered him that type of money and he is a player I really like..... I'll take Ronnie Brewer back(UFA) and see if they can get Portland to send Rudy Fernandez over....who apparently is not happy.
and once again, the racist Jesse Jackson creates forces the fine or punishment of someone that he has ZERO connected to. what a d-bag. the only person who made it a race issue, is the "good" reverend himself. Stern is a big PU**Y for fining Dan Gilbert.
