Center Court wrote:after all that Kobe has been though in his illustrious NBA, the peaks the valleys, and everything in between, he;s always been the most dominant scorer. All the rings, stats, records, etc back his legacy up. His scoring prowess is what got him his rings.
At the lowest point in his career, Kobe dug deep into his basketball soul and found himself in a place he;s never been. His answer was to do something he has never done... playmaker before scorer. Wouldn't it be something to see a crazy run into the finals led by this Kobe? Doing all the things everybody said he couldn't or wouldn't?
I ahve to believe that Kobe is trying to reinvent himself to do something that people said and say was impossible.
Hater will still have something to say. Kobe the scorer made them upset because it showcased how great of a player he was so they found something wrong with it when in reality most NBA players love to score even pg's or they wouldn't be playing basketball because you have to score regardless. Kobe Magic Johnson in his 17th season really makes them upset because they felt they can say "I told you so" about his play, but they still can't admit that whether he's scoring or passing he's still a huge part of the success of his team when the ball goes through him. Anti-Kobe peeps are torn on their hatred now.
