You have to be joking. If there wasn't an internet would people complain as much about nonsense?
I think that Kobe actually thinks he IS Jordan at times.
Pau is one of the most skilled 7 footer. Typical 7 footer can only dominate inside the paint, but Pau can dominate in/outside of the paint (passing skills, moving skills without the ball etc). I dont see anything to NOT to like about Pau. Kobe is better than Jordan is some ways. Its hard to compare Jordan and Kobe.
Go Pau! Dunk Away!
Congrats Derek Fisher for hangin' in there and comin' up huge...
If I remember correctly, Kobe wanted out of LA when he couldn't win when he was the main guy. Jordan played and WON with the players he had and NEVER complained. Everyone thinks Kobe is so great but he's one of the most overrated players in the game ever. Next to TMac.
Jordan made players better like Pippen, Kukoc and Grant. They all sucked when they went to different teams.
Kobe needed others to make him better IMO. Shaq was the best thing to ever happen to Kobe because he wasn't the main target. When Shaq left and Kobe couldn't be "the man" he wanted out of LA. They Lakers as a team has better talent than the Bulls team ever had.
We'll wait and see if Kobe takes two years off then come back. See how he does before I answer how MJ did in Washington.
The argument that Jordan had such a great supporting cast is one of the most overrated things ever. Nobody would even know the names of those guys if Jordan did not make them look good. Scottie Pippen is certainly NOT a hall of famer without MJ.
Nevermind I will answer how MJ did in Washington.
01-02: 22 points/game 5 rebounds/game 5 assists/game (played in 60 games)
02-03: 20 points/game 6 rebounds/game 4 assists/game (played in all 82 games)
I would say that isn't bad at all.
Did he complain about how bad the team is? NO
Did he ever want out of Washington when they weren't winning? NO
Did he blocked and pinned the ball on the backboard with two hands? YES
