He was the reason we lost the last 2. No doubt. But he was also the reason we won a lot of games, not just this season, but since he's with the team.
I believe that kind of rejection towards the idea of praising a player regardless of what he does is what people call "hating".
Criticism is fine, but what you do (and have been doing) isn't. He is the franchise player of the team you say you are a fan of, he is one of the best to ever play, he gave the lakers everything he's got. Your attitude towards Kobe is inexplicable to me (since you claim to be a fan of the team).
We can critisize any player, but "hating" on a player on your own team should be unacceptable.
