For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

lol blake griffin is not a top 3 pf. No way.
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.

Hater gonna hate right? vent came out at full force :sing:

Two lakers ? Wow


Kobe in the 1st team is a joke.


Kobe being 1st team is kinda funny


Kobe also played the worst defense in the league and won only 47 games despite a stacked team


it should also be noted that kobe played the worst defense in the NBA had a teammate that was an All-NBA third teamer and still won only 47 games


Kobe on first team is a joke.


Why is Kobe on 1st team and Harden is on 3rd team?


if the Lakers had someone like Paul George or James Harden instead of Kobe they would have had a better record


Kobe effect on his team was horrid. Didn't make his teammates better, didn't get them to gel. Often killed his team's flow in order to pursue personal stats. (Just like he did with the Olympic team, which was painful and offensive to watch.)

At this point Kobe is like a Monta Ellis: sure he puts up stats, but he does it in a way that doesn't really help the team win.

Kobe's stats don't warrant awards if the process he employs to get them causes his teammates to underperform...which it does.


Kobe has absolutely no business being on first team though (I'd put him on 3rd). What a joke.


Kobe continues to rack up accolades he doesn't deserve, but he's been doing that for a few years now.


LOL :man10:
Everyone's glad for Timmy but mad at Kobe

All those comments show is that none of those people actually watched any Lakers games. Kobe did everything humanly possible to get us to 40-some wins, I can't imagine how bad we'd have been without him. Oh wait, yes I can, I watched the playoffs.

Stacked team? When? For 45 min total all year? 3 head coaches to boot. Pressure of LA and so on. Morons, watch the games. Stop reading box scores and listening to talking morons on BSPN and LA Crimes.

That crossed my mind too no joke, I just didn't want to get any arguments started that will never end. :man10:

Our team was "stacked"... on paper. In reality they played like a handful of games healthy, Nash, Pau, Hill and Blake missed huge chunks, Dwight had a torn labrum, and on and on and on. Not saying we win a title if we were healthy, but we win more than 47 games for sure.

We now live in a world of know-it-all box score/fantasy-basketball armchair critics....propelled by the ESPN machine (the only name in sports).

Kobe won't be fully appreciated until he's retired and gone.

It is what it is.
