I watch almost every single Laker game.
Its the local games and all my boys and family members are Laker fans. You wanna know why?
BECAUSE I LIVE IN LOS ANGELES
Since I really don't give a *** who is better, since I don't like either. I can honestly say that Tmac WAS better for a good span.
YOU must not have watched many Orlando games during that era. He used to KILL people on a nightly basis, and he DID attract more attention than Kobe has.
Was it because he was so much better? No
The system that he's played in, and the teammates that he's had caused that.
Even when Kobe had bad teammates and didn't play under the triangle, he still didn't draw as much attention. Keywords being "as much" attention.
Either way, so what if Tmac WAS better?
Kobe is easily better than he is, and will have the better career by miles when they both retire.
