MJ stans are so out of touch with reality. The way these dudes talk, you would expect MJ to have never lost a game and have 15 rings.

They still wouldn't be able to beat the Thunder or Heat in a 7 game series. Most likely a 2nd round exit team.

Only if he froze out his teammates by jacking up 45 foot jumpshots with 2 people on him and 12 seconds remaining on the shot clock. Yeah, he'd probably lose in the 2nd round.

Kobe fans are clamoring for a bench, a point guard (preferably an All Star, at that) and would love to upgrade from Bynum to Dwight Howard.

Well, no sh*t Kobe may win that way. But that's also why Kobe will never get the credit they want him to get.
Wow, really good post.

It's also why Jordan considered himself a "utility man" doing whatever it takes to fill in the holes to make the team a complete threat.

Jordan didn't spend his absolute PEAK from ages 27 (1990), 28 (1991), 29 (1992), 30 (1993) playing for a crappy team, attempting to score as many points as he could. Whether it was 62 in 3 quarters, or 81 points, etc. He had to be a complete player to make his team a championship threat.

Kobe always has and always will seem more content with just being that guy who scores, and attempts to put up insane PPG numbers. That's why as you said, even Lakers fans realize the limitations that's why they lust for star caliber play-making PGs, and superstar caliber Cs to help keep Kobe relevant, as opposed to the other way around.

Besides 2008, that was the one season where I felt Kobe wasn't enamored with being simply a scorer, he let the game come to him naturally, and truly was a very, very great all around player that season.

A true MVP. He created for himself, but not excessively, and took the time to create for others as well. Ashame he hasn't been able to duplicate that season.

Agreed Da Realist, but the Triangle offense is also designed to play to the strengths of players who may not be athletic as well. When a team is dedicated to it, like the 94 Bulls were, they can surprise opponents.
