its not about making your teamates better, its about them playing with the same will and drive. for him to say lakers wont make it again is foolish.

the biggest contradiction of the quote that dismisses everything he said

"kobe doesn't make his teammates better"

uh huh

"the lakers have average talent around kobe"

wait a minute

so kobe made and average team a title contender so which is it

Great read Heir!

Face it fellow TLN members, Kobe will always be hated. No other player has garnered as much hate in league history I believe(correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just going for at best results), and with that amount of hate, it translates to the other side where there is as much love for him by us.

Love the hate. Love the love. Ok that sounds weird. Whatever. :lol:

Thank you, sir.

Outside of this statement...

The NBA was thrilled to have the Lakers back in the Finals but it will be one and done for them.


...it's like the rest of the stuff he said would've been true 2-3 years ago.

The sole goal of this type of statement is to get the attention. It has nothing to do with facts. As long as they get the attention they achieve their goal.

So this thread is exactly what this "scout" was hoping for ...

If you're not guilty then no need to respond. People calling him a 'douche' and getting 'angry' over somebody who says your favorite team won't win. Big deal. I know this is just basketball, but in general people need to learn that not everybody is going to agree with you. It doesn't make somebody a 'douche' just because they aren't your identical twin.

if the 'douche' comment was directed at me, let it be known, i actually called EVERY person that gets paid to make predictions a douche.

just some douche getting paid to sit behind a computer and write something different then all of the other 324546543 douches getting paid to sit behind a computer and write stuff.

predictions are garbage, imo. it might just be me, but I honestly don't care what some "expert" thinks is going to happens nine months from now with anything, wether it be basketball, football, baseball, politics, ect... I don't know, i've been blogging (credibility, GONE) since 2004, and I think the bane of internet sports coverage is f'ing predictions. Granted, this guy is a "professional," but the pool of predictions has become SO diluted over the past few years, it's just annoying now.

people who have enough of a finger on the pulse of sports are more than qualified to come to their own conclusions, but the problem comes in when everyone that comes to conclusions feels the need to share them with everyone for the off chance that they can rub it in the face of the world if they're right.

that's all. just something that bugs me.

Some scouts don't do their homework before they write.

Oh I only have the default 20 posts per page. But my point is, why even dignify this crap with a response? Why do we have to prove anything to some anonymous "scout"? Something like this shouldn't fire us up at all. Quotes like that shouldn't warrant more than a chuckle, and then you move on and forget about it.

Then watch how you word your posts. The way it came across was very broad and seemed like everyone who had posted up till your post was "hating" on that guy.
