Well mostly vice versa on that one. There is definitely that trend though, typically fans who hate on Kobe hate on Rose overrate CP and Lebron more. Also you'll find that fans that point out faults in CP and Lebron's games tend to be fans of Kobe AND Rose. Even those who don't. I guess it's because most people find the way CP and Lebron left their first teams dishonorable and reprehensible, and competitors like Rose and Kobe are kind of the obvious goodguys in that regard. They are similar player types, killers in the clutch in contrast to the CP/Lebron/(I think Rondo is in the same category, but it might just be because Celtics fans hate the Lakers and Rose is a competitior to what they perceive as their best player) so they attract the same fans.
