    I find it funny, Lakers haven’t made the playoffs since 2013 and recorded their worst time under Kobe. You guys should be a little more humble.

    Lakers fans aint about saying "Oh he tired"... "oh he dont have 3 Superstars to carry him" or "Oh he played the Finals w/ a broken hand" like those Lavs fans, Lakers fans expect to win, no excuses!!

    Kobe speaks three languages fluently, and has Luke's back. Translation, either support Luke or their will be a civil war in the Laker house. Ms. Buss, if she were like her late father would trade Lebron, and fire Magic for destroying the team. And I 'm from LA, East side!

    I’m a Lakers fan and I honestly hope they fail with LeBron. I was so pumped last year to see these young kids mature and play last year. Now we take a step back with LeBron and don’t know who we are losing. I think D-Russ had to go he obviously is talented. But Zubac, Randall and most likely Kuz and Ball will all be gone. For what? LeBrons 3 years in LA. Everyone talks his injury. They stink. You could argue that they might, might have 42 wins right now.

    Did Kobe win a ring without help no. When Magic won championships it was showtime lakers. When Shaq won he had Kobe. When Kobe won he had gasol etc. LeBron has young players with no experience and injuries? Come on and yall expect him to win in a stacked Western conference. Come on now Biased

    Lol, his days of getting a ring are over, and so is the Lakers. They are several years at least, away from a playoff sport, forget about a ring. There will be no celebrations in L. A. for a long time. The worst part is they pissed away all that money on a has been, instead of investing it into some good young players.

    Boxing analyst brushes off Kobe as if he knows anything basketball. Gtfo here Kellerman. You and your espn propaganda can’t fool real true NBA fans. Whenever old school hall of fame players are asked to pick between the two, they always pick Kobe. I’ll take their word over these fucking bums at ESPN who never played a game.

  • ExilixE

    Jalen is right. Kobe and Lakers fans are outraged because Kobe turned down movies and hollywood or drinking wine?? or sitting out or conplaining, etc. Kobe always woke up at 4am everyday, sacrificed time with his family, hollywood deals, etc. and gave his life to basketball. And with a talent like Lebron, Kobe feels he could give more to the game practice wise instead of relying on his talent. he is losing athleticism and still doesnt have a go to move, doesnt seem to be improving on his game (defensive principle-wise, post-game, scoring arsenal, etc), worsening on his free-throws, and seems a bit heavier

    Tired....tired....tired..... can I get paid for my own personal thoughts. Stephen A., get rid of the arrogance please. All of you need to stop trying to compare players to past greats. You can’t compare Kareem to Wilt. You can’t compare Dr. J to MJ or MJ to Kobe or LeBron. Times are different. Players are different. Teams are different. Stop trying to speak for people. And if the Lakers are so true to achieving rings and championships, where have they been the last few years. It will take time. LeBron is the best hands down. I’m truly amazed that commentators who are NOT ballers and who has never played a professional game get to sprew so much bs when they are trying to convince others to take their side or opinion. Everyone in their respectful error is the g.o.t. You can’t measure someone’s success by comparing them bc each individual persons effect on their team is different. You’re doing fans a great disservice with this rhetoric. Let them play. If you don’t hear it from the players mouths, just shut it up. Deuces.

    Also make lebron even more overrated MJ did more then he did in lesser year js. FACTS. He isn't in the goat conversations period. Then he lost 6 finals please Kobe won two championships without another superstar Pau gasol wasnt a superstar or Ron Artest they was old n Kobe still lead them to a rings. Lebron won his rings with dwade n cbosh. Also kyrie save him in one of his rings bc he need a closer bc he isnt a closer or a good free throw shooter or shooter

    This is fabricated propaganda that people that support Kobe want to push. True or not, they'll eat it up, so SAS will twist his statements out of context so they can sell it to the anti LeBron masses.

  • If you don't believe me Google it!!!

    I'm still not respecting him because he ain't you Kobe. That's what I'd tell the Mamba. I would love to hear what Kobe would say and respect it.Max right though ,Kobe not Mike but thier more a like than Bron. 1Kobe (Yes I'm biased and contradicting myself) like Max said because I'm a Lakers fan. 2 Jordan (Really number 1 but this is my comment). I know y'all gone let me live even if it's in delusion🤣🤣🤣🤣😂🤣😂

    Lebron aint gonna like all this pressure coming from Kobe. Since I think the NBA is trying hard to cement Lebron's legacy, they'll probably give him a few allstars and/or rearrange the conferences (like putting one of the Texas teams in the East and switching around other borderline markets) by next season.
