Of course the headline on the NBA page on ESPN is that, and I'm paraphrasing, "Kobe's supporting cast propels him past the Cavs". Sheez.... Typical ESPN.
And dumbass Adande, when comparing Kobe and Lebron, mentions how Kobe went 3-12 in the 4th against Orlando (justifying why he can't put Kobe as better than Lebron) and conveniently forgets the 4 previous games where Kobe hit huge clutch shots down the stretch.
No matter what Kobe does, they will find a way to emphasize Lebron. Just like TNT tonight where every aside was about James this and James that. James is great. He is amazing, but the media is constantly massaging his nuts and figuring a way to de-emphasize Kobe.
Example... everytime on TNT tonight where they mentioned Lebron's shooting tonight... everytime they emphasized that Kobe got a lot of help. Last year when Lebron shut down Kobe at the end of the game (when they were box and oneing Kobe) it was "Lebron shuts down Kobe" everywhere. If Lebron had dislocated his finger and the Cavs had won, it would have been "Lebron fights through dislocated finger to beat Kobe and the Lakers".
The bias is so damn terrible. I'm sick of it.
