I was never a Kobe fan but I did not like Lebron either (esp after the decision) nor guys like Los Angeles Lakers Rip Kobe Bryant NBA signature shirt and separate the emotion from reason. If you can’t do that you’re not a true basketball fan. What made me write this is that Kobe is being completely overrated today much to the disrespect of other greats and imo he is nowhere near the GOAT, he is about at the end of top 10 and even that was due to his being fortunate to spend his entire career with a franchise as great as the Lakers: has always had marvelous help and possibly the greatest coach of all time. If guys like T-mac or AI had the same luck, they would’ve accomplished a ton too and would be much higher in rankings than they are today. Add to that Kobe’s exposure to a huge market of fans, he’s sort of created a little cult of personality based on his tough persona which has given him mythical stature, contrary to reality.

And without the right ball distribution, and father time catching up to him, its only natural that having to absorb contact and find the right ‘looks’ for his shots would get more and more difficult over time. With the right cast around him now, and I wouldn’t even call it a supporting cast anymore, he will have his chance to shine again. He was still amazing in the last few seasons- but statistically, he will be right back up there again. You cannot take away the scoring instincts of someone as talented as Kobe Bryant.
