Don't listen shit to what Espn and these so called "Analysts" say about Kobe! What matters is what his peers and all these great players talk about him. They literally have their own stories to tell about Kobe and that is just awesome. The greats and his fellow players say he's top 5 all time I say he's 1B in my book next to MJ! #Mamba

So Kobe was the basketball version of 2Pac. Bro never slept. That shows you how much it takes to be the best, not just what it takes to make it.

It's reassuring when actual NBA players who played the game of basketball and has shared the passion Kobe has for the game talk about him as one of the all time best. Unlike media people who tells a differnt narrative. I'd take the words of former NBA player over these suit-wearing fat people who never even once scored a bucket on a JV game.

Yo Matt & Stephen, great show brothers, much appreciated. Yall former professional NBA players break it down in layman's terms for guys who may have played ball but just not at yall's level, however I can relate and I assume several bothers do the same. Listening to yall stories, I'm cracking up because I'm thinking man I remember guys exactly like yall speaking of. I subscribed, all in, God Bless.

I remember Rip. Played against him all 4 years in highschool as I went to Upper Merion. Freshman year he came out didn't say a word but just killed it. Then came varsity and dude was on another level. Remember that game against Kobe too. It was at the Palestra in Philly. Rip had a real nice game but Kobe came out on top. Lower Merion definitely was more like a privot school but they had some real nice players. Coatsville was always nasty but it was out in the country for sure. Good memories.

Dam bro it all looks like surreal I hear the story and I can feel Kobe in the background laughing sitting next to this guys having a good time. Brings back memories of just how great Kobe was and his mentality. Good fucking job entertaining story boys.

Crazy how I grew up watching these guys in their primes. I remember Jordan and the bulls, but I was a kid then. Crazy seeing guys like Kobe, D Wade, Duncan, Dirk, KG, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Iverson, Shaq, T Mac, etc all retired. Everybody talks about the 90s, but the 00s and most of the 2010s were a great time to be alive watching the NBA. After LeBron, I'm not sure whether the NBA will ever be as exciting.

Facts I’ve said the same thing, I grew up watching the early early 00’s, & 2010’s always said it wasn’t as interesting as now & the defense was more intense just everything! (Coming from someone who grew Up playing ball & played AAU) shit changed

What's crazy is as just a fan watching NBA games without knowing alot of these stories back in the days, it's a trip to have seen these dudes play each other and not realize how deep their bonds were from early on. I would've never known how much alot of these guys knew each other and how well they knew each other. Esp Rip Hamilton. I was a huge Laker and Kobe hater due to being a Kings fan, and remember Rip getting his buckets on Kobe. It never seemed as if they knew each other outside of professionally on the court. I love hearing these stories of future stars in the making.

@LG3 Yeah, guess supersticion just took over with the mask. That Detroit team most definitely deserved that ring the old fashioned way. It was just the end of the line for that Laker team. Kobe got his time again tho. Rest in piece.

@jef cergos it was funny to me how after his nose was good he just kept wearing it for the rest of his career. Wizards should have never traded him but I'm glad he and Ben Wallace got that chip just wish it wasn't against my Lakers
