However, I do think this is a homer pick.
All that stuff about what KG did for that franchise is irrelevant because all of the top-4 do those things for their franchise, sans Kobe. That's to say, without Kobe, the Lakers are still popular. But without Lebron? NO ONE ON EARTH cares about the Cavs. Without Paul? Do the Hornets even stay in New Orleans?
He acts like KG is the only one who changes the entire complexion of his franchise. It's just not true.
