Default Kobe's Legacy If The Heat Embarrass Him

Would Kobe be better off not wanting a piece of the Heat in the Finals?

It was embarrassing enough seeing the Heat beat up on the Lakers in the regular season as is, the sight of LeBron and Wade walking all over Kobe in the Finals ... would really damage his legacy I think.

Perhaps that's why the Lakers went down so easily to the Mavs.

Kobe can't be embarassed by losing to the top 2 players in the league, but if Kobe were to beat them then it would do wonders for his legacy.

It's too bad the Heat seem to own the Lakers.

Here is how Wade did vs Kobe last year

18 points on 6/17 (35.3 FG%), 6-6 FT
20 points on 9/23 (39.1 FG%), 1-1 FT

I doubt Kobe will be embarrassed, he plays Wade good

Wade didn't really need to do much though, the Heat didn't have much trouble with the Lakers at all.

Also goes to show, that eventually Wade is going to have light the Lakers up, and then it's going to be real ugly.

Lakers have nobody who can stay in front of Wade on D, it's almost a little sad.

I guess the bandwagon Heat fans are back after disappearing for the entire off-season because the Heat got their asses handed to them in the Finals

Yes his legacy would be crushed that the two remaining wing rivals who haven't suddenly turned up washed up yet had to team up together AND add an all star big man to their team to win anything.

At least the Heat beat the Mavs a couple of times. Kobe seems to get a pass for getting swept like a total chump, lol.

Heat had a good first year together and will now be accustomed to playing together.

Yeah I was about to say...If the heat got their asses handed to them then what do you call what happened to the Lakers? lol

Cant wait for the season to start so people can stop hating on everything... Clean slates at least. Doesn't mean they wont get dirty and will get hated on later lol.

Funny how so many Heat bandwagon fans say that now. Before the finals, you guys were saying that the Mavs had no chance and were gonna get destroyed by the Heat. Didn't work out so well, did it?

At least Kobe made it to The Finals 3 times in a role prior to that.

I don't understand how it could affect his legacy. LeBron and Wade are in their prime and Kobe is aging. Stop fishing for BS to talk about.

And didn't you naysayers say for sure the Heat wouldn't beat Boston their first year together? And even if they did, for sure they'd lose to Chicago?

They came up 2 games short from winning it all in their first season together. Not the end of the world.

The Mavs did the Lakers a favor by sparing them the humiliation of being owned in the Finals.

I'm not even a Lakers fan so I have absolutely no trouble admitting that the they got their asses kicked too. It was just funnier watching the Heat collapse
