Its just when being a fan goes into hero worship.  Maybe Im just too old for that.  In HS maybe this way of thinking was cool but as a 28 year old man with a kid I can't see myself worshipping some guy thats 8 years my senior like he's the greatest human to walk the planet.  At his root Kobe is a ball player to me.  A gladiator an entertainer and some things he does is inspiring but some of these guys will go to war and exaggerate any and everything to make sure he's worshipped like gdamn MLK or something.

 

 

I think it's obvious that just because he had a "shoulder injury" it does not mean it was something that bothered him every single game and that the poor guy was playing with pain for 14 years because of it. Cmon Majesty.

 

Athletes encounter a lot of small nagging injuries throughout their career, Majesty. Should we kudos every single player who plays with minor muscle aches, or a cut toe nail, or rash on their balls? These guys get paid millions to entertain, and they should be doing everything they can to go out there and perform.

 

Kobe's played with many small injuries throughout his career. Remember his pinkie? His broken nose? It's fine to say you're proud of Kobe, but to glorify him for doing this is way too much. Especially when he's compared to Jordan. To be compared to Jordan, you better be worthy.

Yeah Jody.

Wait until you wake up one day and realize all the ballers you like watching are YOUNGER than you.

That is a tough nut.

 

Then a few years later a bunch of COACHES are also younger than you.

Yikes. Its weird.

 

Always been about 20-25 guys in the league that makes anticipating games and reading stats fun.

Kobe has been one of them for so long its hard to remember the league before he arrived though


Praying for 1. Kobe's Health (Nope, another season ending injury), 2. High Draft Pick (Randle...season ending injury game #1.*sigh*) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet, but Black looks nice), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of, Davis, nice upside!), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron coaching to tank and injure)

 

Obviously, the praying thing didnt work.

Lamest [expletive] in the world going to a Lakers fan site to convince fans to be totally objective.
Don't be fanatical about Kobe. Like LeBron and Dwight and everyone else.


It's [expletive]ing dumb.


If you are grown then recognize why people worship the Lakers and move on.

BB IQ is a cornball and a terrible rapper and everyone knows it.  The only thing funny is the fact that his name is something he has no knowledge of.
