Here's hoping that Kobe is the last of the "hypesters". Nothing against him personally, but I could do without the star-diven league BS.

Yeah, I agree. But it wont happen. I doubt anyone actually is into the nba because they hate kobe. there are many people only into it because they love kobe (or bron or....). But most "haters" seem to be reasonable fans sick of the ****. THere are, of course, exceptions. most of the hardcore haters of one player tend to be huge fanboys of another player. In other words, they only hate to prop their own idol up.

after kobe retires, nba teams will play 82 games. 41 home and 41 away. the teams with the best records at the end of the season will play in this tournament called the "playoffs." Then teams will play a best of 7 series and whatever team wins that series goes onto the next round. After 3 rounds of the playoffs, the final 2 teams remaining will play in the NBA FINALS :eek:

Whoever wins the NBA Finals, that is your new nba champs. Then the offseason begins :D

The media wont be able to use him as a polarizing persona anymore, but they wont allow Lebron to go without the rival narrative for long. They need it to create the drama to get people to watch. The only question is who they are going to pick? I think they will have snubbed Wade too long by the time Kobe retires for it to be him. Kevin Durant perhaps?

????? Well if you get your wish, say goodbye to the NBA. That would devastate the bottom line of the NBA. The league would collapse because no revenue is coming in, and we would all be stuck watching the WNBA.

No thanks.

Try as they might, LeBron has no charisma. He has gotten possibly the largest marketing push of any athlete ever; despite that, even casual fans are getting board with him. His public personality has been choreographed; mostly everything he says and does sounds like it came off a public relations desk. Hence, the fuss when he "broke character" and "snubbed" the Magic by walking off the court. If it was, say, Mo Williams who did that, would anyone have even noticed? No way.

'Bron needs to be careful because he is dangerously close to becoming the ARod of basketball; a bloodless cadboard cut-out with no personality and who is operated like an industrial machine; a cash cow for the league, Nike, and himself.
