In response to KG-LB-KM's comment:
Lets see, He scores lots of points even when his shooting % is terrible. I guess he is a real team player.
The Lakers could have had KG in 2007 but Kobe was being such a tool at the time, that KG refused to play with him and went to the Celtics.
He is allowed to frlagantly foul others and the foul is called on the person that was fouled. One of his favorite tricks is punch other players in the groin. - a real stand up guy.
He berates other players on his own team. A real leader
He wants to win championships but only on his own terms. He has to be THE star. Shaq loves the guy. It is lucky that he went to the Lakers. If he had been on any other team, He would have never won a championship. Only the Lakers could surround him with enough talent to make his horror show work. How is it possible to not win a championship with Shaq, Kobe, and the supporting cast that they had?
Kobe has great talent but Kobe represents everything that is wrong with the NBA .
I have nothing but disdain for Kobe, and you're absolutely right about him berating his own players -- and in the media, which I particularly hate. But as much as I hate to, I have to give credit where it's due. He's phenomenal. And he's not shooting a terrible percentage. He's at 47.5%, which considering how often he shoots and the different angles, is pretty impressive. He's a complete tool, no question, but a ridiculous talent.
