Are you going to diminish LeBron's ring due to him having Wade then?
Kobe didnt blow it up. He wasnt used to being bullied. Shaq was a bully.
Was Kobe a young punk, that thought he knew it all? Of course. Thats why he was forced in the gm when he shot the airballs. The Lakers organization was furious with Del Harris over that. But, Kobe asked for it.
Shaq was mad with Kobe because Kobe hated the offense. Which was made for Shaq.
They just didnt get along, and the Lakers went with Kobe. They made the right choice obviously.
Rings a ring. But that was Shaqs team.
I Ain't got no Worries - Lebron James
his first ring though he had 14, 2, DNP, 28, 8, 26.
Was 8-27 to get those 26 pts in the close out game
while shaq did this-
game 1 43pts 19 rbs 4 ast
game 2 40- 24 rbs 4 asts
game 3 33pts 13 rbs 2 stls 2 blks
game 4 36 pts 21 rbs 2 blks
game 5 35pts 11rbs 2blks 2 stls
game 6 41 pts 12 rbs 4 blks
Could have 9 rings on his hand if he was a team player. He proved he was not one. Never has been never will. Me first type of guy.
Had the best coach and player in the world and he was upset everyone gave Shaq all the credit (which he deserved) so he blew it up.
Then threatened to leave when he couldn't do it by himself.
Those years in LA Shaq was the GOAT to play the game.
The 00-01 lakers beat any team Jordan was ever on. Believe that in all seriousness
How old was Kobe?How old was Shaq?
I love watching Lebron. But nothing compares to Shaqs lakers.
Tell the truth.What really happened was Shaq and Phil wanted Kobe to level off his game which Kobe wouldn't agree to.Shaq was jealous that Kobe was getting to much pub period.Could they both have handled the situation better sure but it's not on Kobe.Shaq demanded the Lakers pick aside and management went with the younger player which was Bryant.
Sweet list Shaq was def a beast.Now list for me all the games where Kobe saved LA's ass in the playoffs.Like against the Blazers or when Shaq fouled out against the Pacers.Don't act like Kobe just rode Shaq's coat tails.They didn't win jack until Kobe came of age at 21.
You really are talking out your ass, lol.
Shaq was the one threatening to leave. After they beat the Suns once (Kobe had 38, Shaq 18) Shaq immediately requested a trade.
Tex Winters had to actually sit Shaq down and show him videotape of Kobe running the offense through Shaq. Shaq bullied the man.
The Kobe hate is strong man LOL.I don't get it either.
What about the years when Shaq was gone and Kobe missed the playoffs. And he was all pissy wanting out of LA. Hell even Phil Jackson left his ass.
Me first player. Especially back then.
He doesn't win 1 of those rings without #34. But he could have 9 on his hand right now if he embraced the fact that he cod ride the biggest show in the history of the game.
He's a punk bitch. Always has been.
Shaq single handedly dominated that series.
But, next time you try to hamper Kobe... Make sure that you point out that he was injured that series.
He played less than 10 mins in gm 2, hence the 2 pts.
He missed the playoffs one year in his entire career so what do you mean years?I'm not understanding.
Yeah he was a me first player. Just like Shaq.
Magic has gotten a coach fired, as well as MJ. Hell, MJ was hated by his teammates when he was young. It happens, lol.
Look those were my 2 favorite players. Shaq was my #1. But, even I knew what Shaq was doing. Kobe signed with the Lakers when he was 17. He thought he was all that.
. The Lakers wanted Kobe to be the guy, and Shaq wasnt feeling that. Hell, I dont blame Shaq. But, I dont blame Kobe either.

Hahahaha. Yea you got it Kobe didnt need Shaq at all. Showed too.
My point is two top 10 players of all time where on the same time in their prime. And he blew it up. Me first player.
You mean the organization blew it right?Kobe doesn't have the power to trade anyone.I know you like those game winners in the playoffs from a 21 year old don't you LOL?
Sure he did. He requested and it happened. Or went with youth as you call it.
Kobe didn't request anything.Shaq did all the requesting because he's a hater just like you.Couldn't take the young buck stealing his shine so he wanted out like a B*TCH.Now that I think about,him and LeBron have alot in common.
Hahaha. Kobe has always hated Shaq because he was LA. Had the flair and charisma the LA feeds off of. Was the best show in the game.
Won the MVPs. Won the Finals MVPs. Was preferred by the greatest coach ever in Phil Jackson.
Kobe hated a that. Wanted to prove he didn't need Shaq. Took him several years of embarrassing loses to prove he couldn't do it by himself like he thought he could. So he went out and started raping ugly chicks in Colorado and boom LA got a few serviceable players and he won 2 more. Good for him. He's still not Shaq.
I'll catch you on the flip side with this argument. Got me up way past my bed time.
Shaq had an altercation with Jerry Buss.
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
Wade is going HAM tonight, LBJ going to do his usual all around elite play.
Some tools will do their usual Wade is carrying the team routine BS. USC will get all mad because Kobe is not in the playoffs again.
Rinse, wash, repeat.
