Say what you want about Kobe being self-centered.....bottom line..........HE GOT GAME!!
Yeah, I noticed all of the "Got Game" banners hanging up in the rafters in LA. Luckily getting dropped like a Mike Tyson chump-opponent in the first round this season won't tarnish the Lakers' legacy a bit.
Shaq has averaged more points than any of the "Sac" Queens! (and I mean that literally!)
I forgot, how do they calculate game winners? The player with the post points, or the TEAM with the most points?
Shaq's free throw percentage is better than Weeebbers and since when does a player average the most points and most turnovers?
Don't try to compare him to another stiff. Compare either of them to any of 90% of the NBA players in the league and get back to me.
shaq makes his free thorwos when they count
How do you feel about people around you that half-[Swearing is not permitted at Clublakers. You must edit this post prior to submitting.] everything they do and only really try when it really matters?
If Kobe is so "self-centered," then how come he is among the top 15 in assists per game
If you or I ball-hogged all game long, we would accidentally get a decent amount of assists as well. Shaq gets a ton of boards, but that isn't because he's a good rebounder. He's just there taking up space when the rock comes off the rim. I myself don't really believe Kobe is self centered. He's a freakin' warrior, but has a lot of growing to do in order to help his team win on a regular basis. His games are too schitzophrinic to provide stability to a team that requires a leader game in and game out. Kobe's Shaqless teams (when Shaq isn't in the mood to play) have a losing record. By month, year, and career. Period.
In short my bandwagonning friends, the Lakers are a two man team. One man is fading fast, and the other isn't quite ready to take over the responsibility. You need to retool this off-season (starting next week), dump the bums (Fisher, Fox, Horry, Madsen), and get young. Get motivated. It'sm to another stiff. Compare either of them to any of 90% of the NBA players in the league and get back to me.
