Ruben Patterson coined the phrase...
With Posey to the hornets and Ron-Ron to the rockets the phrase kobe stopper has once again popped up in Nba circles. My question is too Lkare fans, who from your standpoint, is the individual(s0 that gives Kobe a hard time?

IMO
Battier is the only one i can see right now...john Salmons did a good job in the preseason... T prince and the pistons also give Kob a hard time

LOL no one can stop kobe

NO ONE

I guess you forgot he lit up Battier to 2 50 point games only a season ago and dropped 56 on him in 3 quarters when Kobe was only 23.

Salmons did his job...in preseason when Kobe was not even looking for his own shot

Prince is surrounded with good help defenders and thats one of the reasons why they contained Kobe in the finals

Individually no one can stop Kobe, im serious

Prince did an excellent job and forced him into spaces where there was help.

Battier forced Kobe into that horrible shooting night in Houston...with the help of his teammates. if you're talking about individual defenders in this league, there is no such thing as a Kobe stopper.

of course no one can STOP him, but f you force him into help you have done a good job on him, kobe's the greatest in the game, but there are nights when he is effectively defended...eric snow used to do a great job...thats why lebron beats the lakers so often

exactly its a testament to how good the help defense is when you're complimenting that defender

Poor help defense is the biggest reason why we lose to teams like the Cavs

Cavs arent horrible, they are a perrineal playoff team with a top 2 player..plus they have a great defense, but yeah team defenses stop Kobe more so than individuals

The only person that can stop Kobe is only Kobe himself, +5.

Matt Carroll and Steve Blake give Kobe problems.

Any team with a shotblocking threat can throw a PG that is quicker than Kobe at him on D and dare Kobe to try to post him up.


Kobe picks up offensive fouls at record rates against quicker players.

Calling it right now:

Andrew Wiggins will be better than LeBron James.
