It's not like Kobe played in the NBA, my bad we watch sports for the analysts.... I remember watching ESPN for the highlights, now it's about interpreting a player's words. What happened?

SAS is looking for ratings. Max gets what Kobe was saying.
So Kobe didn't take care of his body??? Kobe style of conditioning was too difficult for other nba players to handle from what I read smh.... Kobe conditioning was even harder than Jordan style.

Y'all just like to talk, talk, talk, talk, talk...lol blah blah blah...Y'all just like to talk too much. Shut y'all mouth and listen for a min. Kobe was Jordan copycat and Jordan wannabe. I don't like Jordan and Jordan is not the GOAT. Go back to 1991 Finals you babies. What do you know?? If James Worthy was healthy, Lakers would've beaten those Bulls, period. When Pippen was guarding Magic, Bulls put Jordan on Vlade. Jordan couldn't guard Vlade and 100% healthy Worthy would've dominated low post. Game 2 got stolen by pathetic refs who got paid by someone. Now let me get to King James. It's just too early to be talking...but Lakers will definitely make the playoffs & I'll see how far James can carry this team in the playoffs. I want and hope James can win 2 or 3 rings with the Lakers. We'll continue this conversation in April or June of 2019.

Think of it.. LEBRON is the only player made a history comeback 1st time in NBA history 0-3 againts GSw and bring the miami to a champion. Lebron is the only player who can carry a team into the champion. Lebron is the only player who give a championship ring in cleveland 1st time.. my idol LBJ..

LeBron is a great basketball player and he's in a great position to develop into an even greater player, better than the greatest, with direction from Kobe Bryant. If Kobe decided to coach the Lakers, who are the poster team, franchise face of the NBA, by way of Magic, losing will be a think of the past, Kobe is Winner, and LeBron is too.

This is coming from a lakers fan since the 90’s when Del Harris was coaching the team from the roach infested arena called the Great Western Forum in Inglewood. Kobe needs to just stop with the critiquing of Lebron James. Just let the team develop and let Lebron do his thing. It makes him look a little petty. We sucked ass when Kobe was taking all of the money. I appreciate what he did for the lakers but come on bro, enjoy retirement. He was all about not talking about the lakers last year but all of the sudden he wants to speak on the lakers now that Lebron is here. Just stop it already and enjoy that fine ass wife of yours Kobe.
Christian Henson
Stephen A is a fuckin moron!!! Kobe is actually stating truth because eventually doing everything for the Lakers can even wear LeBron down at some point

Gabriel Esuola
I actually believe Kobe wants LA to win. Don't think he necessarily wants to sabotage Lebron. Lebron isn't winning 5 rings or even 3 with LA. Lebron is known for Clevel and MIA work. Right now, this is just resume builder years.

Stephen A. has to be one of the dumbest mofos in captivity. Does he even believe what he's saying? Kobe has more credibility than anybody that can speak....Why? Because LeBron is walking in Kobe's shoes.....Kobe has been there done that, he's traveled the road LeBron is now on. He carried the load and dragged the Lakers into the playoffs.....He achieved that. The precedure was successful....but the patient died. Stephen A has a problem with Kobe personally and it manifest with all of these nonsensical opinions
MDJ Oy oldin
SA just made Kobes point. Kobe had veteran players in nash who was hurt and Dwight who was obviously butt hurt, thus wasn't getting production out of his established team mates, therefore was back to playing with a insufficient squad during the regular season and needed to try and get to the playoffs where he hoped they would be physically and mentally healthy. For the first time bron has teammates bot established, but young healthy with talent and if he and the coaches don't force them to sink or swim then in the playoffs bron is gonna be a one man band and will be crushed. They are good enough to get to the playoff and experiement during the season. Bron is appearing to be a stat suffer and simply as kobe stated it's all about winnin the chips. Kobe had to take control through out his carrer with out allstars, bron hasn't. Kobe certainly knew how to pick the moments hid go off.
