You need to stfu. You guys don't understand what kind of player we have here. Lebron James probably have better natural and gifted talent than Kobe Bryant but Kobe is by far a harder worker, a more passionate player and ten times more passionate about winning than Lebron is. I have not seen a player that is willing to play through injuries over injuries for the past 17 seasons like Kobe did. Maybe during that Jordan game when Jordan was playing with the flu. Other than that, no player comes close to how hard this guy try to put a winning team on the floor. So why the sacrafice? Sure he wants to be the greatest. But part of his sacrifice is for the fans. He is a true warrior. No player right now including Lebron prepared harder and work harder than Kobe Bryant. It does piss me off seeing an injury like this on Kobe. Not because our chances of winning it all without Kobe is really low. Heck, even with Kobe we might not win it all. But to see a legend might end his career in front your eyes is heart breaking.
Do you know why more people compared kobe to jordan than lebron to jordan? Not because Lebron played at a different position than Jordan. It is because the people who actually know kobe and see how he prepares for game says nobody comes close. Asked anybody. Nobody said Lebron wakes up at 3 am in the morning to prepare for a game or spend hours and hours every day on his game. Why? Because Lebron doesn't need to. he already have the natural gifts. Kobe on the other hand needs to and it is because of that hard work and preparation that make him by far better than Lebron. Because the natural ability is one thing but having the mental aspect is another. Kobe Bryant eat and sleep basketball. Lebron doesn't. And for all you haters bashing Kobe all this years saying he's a ball hog or he is a rapist or he suck you guys don't know anything about basketball. You guys make me sick. Amnesty Kobe Bryant? Are you fvcking kidding me?!! You call yourself a lakers fan? Kobe Bryant could be and I believe is the greatest Lakers of all time. Yes even my beloved Magic Johnson. Because Kobe played 17 plus years with this organization. Nobody plays more years. Because Kobe live and die with this organizations and for the fans. We watch him grow up with this organizations and became a lakers for all of his career. With the free agency it is rare to see players play all of his career with one team. Even the Magic man said Kobe should be the greatest lakers of all time.
Because Kobe's mindset is only playing basketball and winning while other superstars have other plans this is what makes him great. You can see the tears in his eyes in the locker room interview. You can see the anger and the sadness in his eyes when he realized this injury could be more serious than people think. Sorry for my vent but this is a day where true lakers fans need to realized we could be in a cross road here. The injury could be a career ending injury. I cannot imagine the life without Kobe as a lakers and for laker fans to dream of that happen makes me sick as a hardcore lakers fans since 1985. Kobe Bryant is the model for how to be great. Not lebron james who only uses his natural gifted talent to dominate. Sure it would be awesome born with a huge body that can run people over but the mind is how people developed as a kid. Being gifted is not all about physical ability. It is how you trained your mind and the reason why I will keep on saying this until the day i die of Kobe being better than Lebron is Kobe's mindset is by far greater than Lebron will ever have. The warrior mindset that Kobe has is unheard of and I hope true fans appeciate that and not saying stupid crap like amnesty kobe or kobe suck or kobe a ball hog. Enjoy the last moments of Kobe Bryant because you guys will regret not having him anymore. Trust me.
