Does it even matter what Nelly thinks? lol


Cuban is a billionaire = I would follow him all the way to bank as well!

First Take is a joke of a sports program. Having an irrelevant Nelly bring his "knowledge" onto the show furthers my point.

What I find hilarious is nelly said he should be a coach out there just because he won 5x. Personally I don't want my best player worrying about rotations etc

Nelly was paid to look like that and say that stuff.  I'm pretty sure.  Sometimes I think when people go on First Take they're asked not to say certain things so that they can sell whatever story ESPN wants at the time.  
Look at the dude's twitter whenever the Lakers would play

"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."

I have been saying this all along. I even started a post called is it something he said (Kobe).  You have to be very strong minded to play with Kobe. But if you can you'll win

Nelly was on first take and I feel that he knew the real reason why Dwight left. He kept asking why nobody is sayin Dwight left because he didn't wanna play with Kobe. Nelly n d12 are friends and I think he said what Dwight (can't) won't say. Skip n Stephen kept sayin Dwight left because of a lot of the reason people say such as the pressure,not gettin Phil ect. So nelly said "how coke it can't b because he didn't wanna play with Kobe" n he said how Kobe has had 3 of the best centers the past 15yrs and how none of them have anything good to say about Kobe. Then he goes on to say that l.a. has made Kobe a spoiled child (or brat,can't remember). He also said Kobe won't win #6,how Kobe unfollowing Dwight was lame...so they Stephen says how Kobe said he unfollowed him because he is not on his team anymore,at that time nelly said somethin that made me raise my eyebrows....kobe follows over 800 people,those 800 people are not on his team or laker fans n he chose 2 unfolllw Dwight,he is following mark Cuban n he wants 2 beat Kobe so why do that to Dwight....so I go and check it out myself and Kobe really does follow over 800 people and just recently followed cuban. So at the end of the debate the rest of the panel said they get what nelly is saying (about Dwight not wanting to play with Kobe) did anybody else catch that?

Of course Dwight didn't want to play with Kobe.


Dwight wanted to be "the man" without having to prove on the court that he was worthy of being "the man". This, of course, is the reason why he'll never be "the man".


If Dwight had a mentality like Kobe, LBJ, Durant, Westbrook - hell, even like Nate Robinson, I think Kobe would have been fine passing him the torch, but he hasn't.

 Shaq got fat, Andrew said a lot of dumb things and was injury prone, and Dwight whined a lot. 


 Of course Kobe had problems with these centers.

Who cares?

Dwight left, because he's lacking the heart and drive of a Champion.

He's not going to be any happier in Houston, because all those guys want to run. Dwight doesn't want to run.

I watched the preseason game against the Spurs. Dwight's back is still not healthy, which leads me to believe, it never is going to be.

Good riddance, chump. I'll take a healthy, off-season rested Pau, over Dwight any day of the week.
