Kobe Bryant… The Best Ever?
Hate him or loathe him all you want, but you better recognize that he has skills coming out of his ears. Do remember the outcry a couple years ago regarding the Lakers decision to keep KB over Shaq? Where are those haters today? They are on their way to the local sporting goods store to buy his top selling jersey after his 4th straight 50+ point scoring game. Only Wilt “The Big Dipper” Chamberlain has ever put up fifty in 4 consecutive games. He did it 7 games in a row and also averaged 50 points a game… no doubt that Wilt was a baller in his day (ask the ladies).KB is so ill that people cannot believe what this guy is doing… is he the second coming of MJ? Of course not, he’s better. We are all a witness to this and please forget about LeBron “No Big Shot” James. He needs to take it to the basket a lot more before I should mention his name with the games elite. KB brings it every night so just forget about all the other frauds that SportsCenter and Stu Scott hype up.
Of course the haters are going to say that the rule changes are the reason why Kobe is scoring like you’re playing NBA Live against your grandmother. I say that Steve Nash is the one who has benefited the most from the rule changes. Can you really tell me that he should be the two-time NBA MVP? Let me keep it moving…
Back to KB, some out there (maybe you) will say that he’d never do work against Riley’s Knicks or Heat teams from the early to late ’90’s. Who on those teams would have checked him? John Starks? Eddie Jones? All those ex-Jordan stoppers… we saw what he did to them on his way to 6 titles.
The only team that may have slowed Kobe would have been the Bad Boys from Motown. Now Detroit had the athletes, length, and crazy dudes like Rodman running around the court that played nothing but “D”. And yes, Joe Dumars would have been in Kobe’s pockets like the stick up kids in the Bronx.
He would have set them cats on fire like he’s doing to the Association’s best two guards today. So again, is he the best ever? Nah, he comes in second place on my list because he doesn’t have a big fro like my man Doctor J. That’s my #1 baller of all time and that’s my word!
