Yeah, cause Bryant settles for jumpers. So putting a smaller player on him would be pointless. Out of all those players, Payton would be able to play him well. But thats the point. Kobe struggles with longer players because they create havoc for Kobe's jumper minded mentality.

Jordan DESTROYED smaller, and/or longer defenders. Jordan as described before is like a super guard combonation of Wade and Bryant.

Talking Kobe Bryant chokes in the NBA Finals again

Kobe Bryant missed 13 of his last 17 shots in the game, which means Kobe made 4 of his last 17 shots. If I had a nickel for every time this guy disappeared in key games during his career I would donate that 100,000 dollars to charity. Kobe was a stellar 5-10 from the free throw line!

Build a statue for this guy who's still trying to win his first championship as the leader of a team at the age of 30 years old....

cha cha cha choke

Like Mike, if he could be like Mike....

Default Honestly, Kobe isn't playing at a top-30 alltime level right now in these Finals

Outside his first game, blah, dude has been just solid. Right there with the likes of Drexler. Harper in his prime. T-Mac when he's less than his best. I see him as being a very good complimentary player right now.

Worse than Wade.

Worse than LeBron against this very same Magic team.

And even Kobe's first game it took him 34 shots to get 40 points.

Are you impressed by his play relative to his hype as being a possible top-10 player with a win in these Finals?

A loss is a loss....Kobe played bad and made crucial mistakes.

Bottom line is he and the Lakers will have another ring in a weeks time.

That's a true statement and can't be denied but the thread is not appropriate.
