The greatest of all time chimed in about Kobe’s frusteration displayed last week throughout the media.

L.A. Times: “Frustration is a part of the game, especially with a competitor. You want to win so bad, and you’ve been there, and you want to get back there-and you feel it hasn’t really happened that way, and you look for reasons why. I think the unfortunate thing is, we judge him in a very emotional state. He’s watching these young kids continue to play, and he’s not. It gets at him. And he starts looking for reasons.

“That’s understandable, but I think he’s got a good scenario over there, a good GM, a good coach. I understand the frustration. I never got to that point, but I can’t say that I can’t identify with it. The worst time for that to happen is now. You want to play. Who wants to be home watching basketball? You want to be out there at the most important time of the season. Then you sit down and you get frustrated and you start pointing fingers or looking for reasons why. He’ll get out of that, as basketball gets away, and summer comes. I think he’ll mellow back and understand the organization is still trying to make the right moves.”

    Great feedback from one of the G.O.A.T!

  • bigbadjames

    such wise words. dont let the media get you down kobe!!!!!!

  • CJ

    yeah, if you got the G.O.A.T backing Kobe up and feeling for him, that means a lot for Kobe. The G.O.A.T understands his pain!!

  • no hater

    dont disrespect the GOAT by saying that Jordan is him…
    GOAT is GOAT and Jordan is Jordan
    no disrespect to Michael either… but he’s always had a good staff around him, which Kobe, unfortunateley, doesn’t.

  • LakerFan4Life

    Everyone hangs on Jordan’s words, one of the greatest basketball minds ever. Food for thought Kobe.

  • Jimmy

    Here’s the problem:

    Kwame has the quality hands of a 6th grader

    Smush makes 2 bad plays for every 1 okay play; 5 bad plays for every good play

    Lamar has smoked too much w33d to try hard for the entire game.

  • Kim

    YOU KNOW WHAT? we should resign Jordan…. And then he could have sex with Kwarme damn, we would be a good team

  • Cindi

    Y’all spelled frustration wrong…

    …anyways, keep your head up Kobe!!! Change is coming.

  • Kobe

    “That’s understandable, but I think he’s got a good scenario over there — a good GM,” ???????!!!!

    ???!!!

    mike i thought you were smart?

  • Berger

    Magic Johnson is the G.O.A.T

  • Mike

    I think you guys added an extra ‘E’ to your article: Jordan talks about Kobe’s frusteration

  • kb2481

    no jordan not greatest player of all time it is kobe it will stay kobe and it will be kobe

    one question to all the jordan fans that think he was the greatestplayer of all time

    did jordan score mor then 80 pionts??? hummm lets think for a secound shall we NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
    DID KOBE YES JANUARY 21, 2006 81 PIONTS AGAINST THE RAPTORS WEARING HIS NUMBER 8 JERSY

  • bigbadjames

    thats pretty biased to say kobe is the GOAT. scoring 81 is a dumb reason for being GOAT cuz you can say wilt was even better for scoring 100. # of rings doesnt determine that either cuz jordan wont win that either. Russell would have clearly won that since he won 11 rings and had 8 of those consecutively. KNOW THE GAME OF BASKETBALL AND DO YOUR RESEARCH..PLAESE!!!!!!!!

    KB2481 = BIASED/BLIND KOBE FAN

  • http://WWW.GETGARNET.COM KOBE_FAN#24

    KOBE IS THE GOAT because he has caried his team in the time of need even wen micheal j played he had more help then kobe. and go to youyube and check out kobes top ten plays and compare them with mikles . and u will see kobe is a more spectacular, amazing and incredible than jordens.

  • Mark

    Kobe is Better than michael. Jordan is just more sucessful. And jordan didnt have any competion with is position like kobe does. And they both can pretty much score automatic when they get pissed at the refs. Top two players-Kobe,Jordan.

  • WATZGOOD

    ALL DIS IS, IS ONE GREAT PLAYER FEELIN DA PAIN OF ANOTHER, U CAN’T COMPARE DA TWO,BECAUSE THEY BOTH PLAYED IN DIFFERENT ERAS, SO LET JORDAN BE JORDAN AND KOBE BE KOBE, M.J. AND THE BULLS WEREN’T ALWAYZ A GREAT TEAM, THEY ALSO HAD THEIR DOWN YEARS, IT HAPPENS, THE LAKER FANS AND KOBE JUST NEED TO KEEP OUR HEADS UP….

    OH AND JORDAN WAS TRIPPIN WHEN HE SAID DAT KOBE HAS A GOOD GM.

  • kb2481

    bigbadjames i already know my research ur going into bill russuel know clearly kobe is way better then jordan and russel and wilt kobe is just to good for them go to youtube and watch some kobe vidoes and compare it to them kobe is way better then all of them

    and trust me i know my research and dont tell me am a blind kobe fan cause am not u r

  • kb2481

    also russel had a team back then kobe those not have a team he carried them into the playoffs

  • kb2481

    also bigbadjames so know ur saying russel wilt and jordan are better then kobe???? ur a blind kobe fan

  • bigbadjames

    puahhahahahaha. you think kobe is THE best. youre an idiot. if you know anything about basketball, there is no ONE greatest player ever. keep dreaming

  • kb2481

    dude admit it ur not a kobe fan and u think jordan is the best

    so that make u a kobe hater and ppl wanna kick pplls ass if there kobe haterz

  • kb2481

    dude do u know what basketball is????????? i dont think so u a dumass ur the biggest kobe hater and the worst basketball infomationer or whatever u dont kno shit about basketball and ur coming to this site and ur talking shit about the best basketball playa ever

  • Justin M.

    All i have to say is twenty years from know when our kids are wachin espn classic and see Kobe’s game and Jordan’s they will say kobe was the greast scorer of all time, maybe not the all around best player but definatly the best scorer the game has see, a guard shootin over doubles tripples and against a devensive gameplan that’s sole purpose is to stop him. 81 in 1 game (in regualtion), 62 in three quarters, 4 consecutive 50 games in a row(all wins) 12 three’s in a game. Thats Kobe’s legacy and the scarey thing is he still has more up his sleeve.

  • speller

    its frustration not frusteration!!

  • bigbadjames

    Justin M. is absolutely right!!! but kb2481 really sounds biased. haha i really dont think youre a laker fan to say kobe is better than all the rest ALREADY. thats mocking jordan kareem magic wilt russell bird and much much more. if you know anything about basketball and you ask KOBE the man yourself he will tell you the same. what is the basis of your argument for saying that kobe is the GOAT already?!?! youre not old enough to see the legends and so werent we. you just dont show any respect to all who came before our time. fans like you are obnoxious and dont know what theyre talkin about. what are you going to tell me to do…type “kobe” into youtube?!?! you noob i probably have more classic tapes of kobe’s highlights and achievements than you. don’t talk like you know kobe, kobe would tell you the same: you HAVE no respect

  • kb2481

    dude bigbadjames do u kno what the hell u sayin.. ur just jealous for kobe being better then ur frakin favorite b-ball plyay

    i bet u dont know the freakin game after all u just kno jordan and wilt and ur syain like everyone that dont know how to play basketball oh jordan is the best kobe is just a ballhog dude if u think ur all that about basketabll and kno more then me well guess what jordan had a team back then not like kobe right know when he carried the team to the playoffs by him self lets see jordan do it he didnt and now ur going to say oh how abt wilt and russel well in the freaking 50′s there was only 6 teams in the nba and they all sucked

  • bigbadjames

    haha. you sound more like those ignorant fans than i do. if you can tell me how kobe is better than all the rest, than good for you. but you can’t. jordan, when he didnt have a legit team led his team to the eastern conference with his famous shot over craig ehlo. kobe, where’s he?!?! first round. kareem won one with Milwaukee before he came here. his supporting cast?!?! you dont even know them. i can defend all these players and say why each of them are the best player ever, even kobe. what does that mean. there isn’t just ONE. but you keep believing that kobe is the only, single player that is the best. because im pretty sure you dont know what the hell youre talking about. youre only argument is that kobe has no supporting cast…but if he was as good as you say he is, shouldnt he go farther than the first round?!?! think about what youre saying. thats why theres all this news about him in frustration. he knows he needs help, so that argument is out the window.

    “and now ur going to say oh how abt wilt and russel well in the freaking 50’s there was only 6 teams in the nba AND THEY ALL SUCKED” – kb2481
    no respect. haha go tell that to bill russel himself.

  • Jimmy

    You are an idiot. Jordan played the Cavs in the first round when he hit that shot. The Bulls still had Pippen then also.

  • @-_-@

    Jordan had a good crew and even good luck on his side
    Jordan was great dont get wrong but he also has way too much hype

    some dummies these days never saw MJ play and still grab his nuts
    (“Blind fans”)

    kobe, cant say he is perfect… but you got to feel for the man…playing with a lottery team

  • laker81

    kobe stay in L.A
