Oh man, that was cold.


It wasn't a diss, I said you aren't LIKELY, meaning its not a likely feat. Kobe is THE guy of his era. The NBA has 95% of the most elite basketball players in the world. It's a tough job to get. Kobe is still dominant. 17th year, and he'll play through pain, flu, court cases.

So it wasn't a shot, just perspective.

Pretty sure he believed every word he said.

It's clear as day that Kobe is done waiting for this team to click.

Even though OKC or San Antonio probably dont want to face us I dont think the Clippers feel that way about us, we'ved played them 3 times, all 3 times we've been down 20 vs them at some point in 2nd half and we've held a lead for a grand total of 2 minutes in those 3 games, 2 minutes!!! Freaking pathetic. We just dont match up well with them at all, they have better 3 point shooting, bench and PG play (starter and backup), all 3 we're super shaky on. They hold up better vs our strengths than we do vs their strengths

Have we ever been 100% when facing them?


Clippers don't scare me, they have played GREAt against us, but they have a "regular season" vibe to them. Keep them out of transition, and make Jamal and Chauncey defend

He didn't "guarantee" they'd make the playoffs. Those words were never spoken.

Love seeing everyone take a quote out of context and put the spin on it they want to read.

Also, what was he supposed to say? Come on guys.

Thats beyond amazing numbers... And he's in his 17th year? :)

"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
