Mfs don’t know around 2002 that boa Paul pierce was a serious problem! I remember being 11 or 12 looking at boxscores and seeing truth dropping those 40 point games

@J C and MJ has two hall of famers and better all around teams and pretty much matched up against slow non athletic white dudes in the finals. Pippen and Rodman would always guard the toughest matchups allowing Jordan to rest on D. Kobe stole a lot of hall of famers moves. Magic’s, Reggie’s, Hakeem’s among others. Jordan stole his moves from other’s as well.
Ramon Reyes

@Daniel Harris Jr. totally agree. Far more skilled than MJ and LeBron.
Ramon Reyes

Realized it long ago. He played in an era where scoring was down and guarded the toughest player if it helped his team win.

Still baffles me that the media don't have Kob in the top 5. For me, as Kevin durant said MJ is 1A and Kob is 1B. Me being from the UK, no one since MJ transcended basketball more than Kobe. He was as big as some of our top football (soccer) players here. And is always mentioned in the goat conversations in our goat conversations. Seems like some of the US media personalities (such as Nick Wright) have pushed their agendas against kobe to such an extent that in some debates he might not even be mentioned in the top 10 debate. Completely delusional. Rest in paradise Kobe ❤️ There will never be another

Paul Pierce had 33pts that game, not 42pts. Kobe had 27pts that game. Pierce career high against kobe is 39pts. Kobe's career high vs Pierce is 43pts

I'm sorry but I'm taking pp over dwade during their prime. Pp had that midrange post up game, can hit the 3, pull ups, step backs. Dwade relied heavily on his athleticsm, he was a slasher, never really had a consistent jumper, but wade played great defense, pp never had much defense... And then wade joined lbj to create a legit superteam. When kg, pp, ray got together, they were clearly on the downhill of their career.

Think about it, if any other player beat a team with 4 All-Stars who have been All-Stars for awhile in the finals to win the chip, media would be calling them GOAT, but man, the disrespect Kobe got was crazy. Players respected him, now since players are into media, this truth is coming out. You are always with us Kobe.

We say Lebron has high basketball IQ because of his passing and general ability as a floor general. Kobe’s IQ has to be the highest for scoring Which is why when they joined up in 08 for the Olympics, it was no surprise they redeemed that
Ralph Tank
Ralph Tank پیش 4 ماه
Kobe's IQ was going way behond just scoring... he studied the WHOLE aspect of the game. His IQ was victory oriented ! Listen Rajon Rondo talking about hit. Just for a reminder, Rondo is known to has one of the highest IQ in the League.
Ralph Tank
Ralph Tank پیش 4 ماه
@S Wavey you spot something bro, I think the same bro. I'd add that I can't believe that with all his IQ he stills lacks fundamentals (especially at the begining if his career), you can see him travelling going to the rim or just after catching up the ball, or bad hand selection for examples... Another point is the fact that he always need the ball and can't really adapt to different coach's system. Since we talk about Kobe, his IQ was on another level according to Lakers staff. One of them tell a story about how Rajon Rondo were the only player in their squad after collective training who'll spend tons of hours reviewing videos and systems about the game and he added that the last one he saw doing the same was....Kobe. (Sorry for my bas english, just a french nba fan passing by)
