Already said I'm not going to get into a fruitless argument when we obviously disagree. You've taken the opportunity twice to throw a bunch of stat/game [expletive] at me when you know that you can't compare a SG and a PG by numbers and style alone just to prove a point or read your own analysis - greatness isn't about skillset or numbers or even perception to me man...
Kobe as great as he is will never mean to hoops in LA and hoops to the NBA what Magic meant in his time no matter how many titles he wins, not to mention it's taken him 4 extra years just to match titles to Magic and (hopefully more as a Laker fan) to surpass him. Kobe retired at 31 is less dynamic than Magic at 31 even with the extra 3 years that Kobe got going from HS to the NBA.
We disagree, let it lie there instead of the passive aggressive "ok we disagree, fair enough after I've had my say" [expletive] you're spewing right now.
Fundamentally, we disagree and I'll let it lie when you do - just don't think I'm going to kiss your ass like so many of the LN posters do because you own this forum. Let it rest or don't, but don't lie about it.
The most polarizing player possibly in NBA history doesnt mean anything to Lakers nor NBA??? HMMMM lets think a minute who has replaced MJ as the clear cut top dog = Kobe the best player of his era & he played & still plays with soon to be ATGs. Kobe has shattered the NBA record books along with almost all the LAKER record books. The Lakers = Kobe BRyant = 17 yrs & still counting. Magic has a statue you really think Kobe is not getting a statue after he is completely done with the game?
You are blinded by ur hate for Kobe it seems cuz there will never be another Kobe nor any Laker player that remains with 1 team only as long as Kobe has & records the stats he has done & will continue to do. Stop the hate & appreciate!
