Default Lebron winning in 2012 will end up helping the Lakers somehow

it seems as though whatever upsets me as a fan. ends up helping me in some way



2004

the colorado incident/losing to detroit because of it. somehow losing with the big 4 helped the lakers and kobe. if they won then shaq would have stayed. kobe would have left or continued getting no respect for rings with shaq, he would have been forced to rebuild later on and changed the history path that already happend. meaning no gasol. no bynum. maybe no mvp or finals mvps? so in a way the worst thing possible happend for a reason. to help my team and favorite player

2006

the worst thing possible would be to play with kwame and smush. but it helped kobe showcase his skills. we would have never saw 81 or 62 in 3 Q's or all his other scoring streaks if the lakers were built to contend... and its losing that lights a fire under mitch/buss to pull the trigger on trades to improve the team.. in a way losing helps. instead of being really good and just missing out. the lakers can rebuild to win a title right away.


but finally ....2013

lebron winning a ring. god knows the refs influence games based on popularity or bias. i'm a laker fan. i can admit it. but lebron winning a ring gives kobe a chance next year. the lakers will face the heat. and if miami lost to durant. everyone knows what happend to durant would happen to kobe in 2013. a great team would seemingly have the world/stern/refs against them. lebron would be super motivated and the miami heat would more than likely beat my team. but since the worst happend and lebron won a ring. it means my lakers will have a major advantage next year if they meet in the finals. so the worst thing possible happend. and it may help my team AGAIN

its all about who the favorite is. they get all the calls in the finals

heat just won

lakers the new show in town


tallent wise theyre pretty even... i have no idea who would win in a fair battle

but this is the nba brah.... this is entertainment... wwe

i'm a laker fan. i know what its like when my team is the favorites

jordan knew all about it too... i can deal with it. its part of the game..

in 2008 the celtics were extremely popular.. they beat LA

2 years later they were old news...

it only took 1 year for the media to forgive lebron... and guess what. everyone loves the heat.. boom... they make OKC look like the raptors in the finals

now that lebrons got his ring. its kobes turn yet again... once again kobe and the lakers are the hot topic around the world. miami's yesterdays news

lakers 2013 champs....tallent can only take you so far

I don't think you realize LeBron is quite easily the best player in the league...

the best player in the nba doesnt always win the title

1999 - malone/shaq ( duncan wins )

2004 - kobe/duncan/garnett ( billups wins )

2006 - kobe/duncan ( wade wins )

2007 - kobe/dirk ( parker wins )

2008 - kobe/paul ( pierce wins )

2011 - lebron/howard ( dirk wins )



and besides... kobe and dwight are both like what? top 3-4 players in the entire league.. that = the best player by far if you combine them as a contribution to a team

Sorry buddy but you will have to put your blinded Lebron hatred aside or quit watching NBA basketball because this decade will be all Lebron (with maybe a hint of Durant maybe winning a championship aswell)

Lebron has legendary impact upon his teams, he makes miracles out of even zero supporting cast help, an addition of Bosh/Wade is an overkill abundance of help for him (if they are healthy & playing that is), if he was mentally there and didnt play so god damn passive last year in the Finals this would have been his 2nd championship...

He got that monkey of his back and now he can just relax and dominate, he tasted the blood, he knows exactly what he has to do and how easy it is... he will spam championships... and is only improving (including his team)... be afraaaiiiddd *in a very scary voice* :P

kobe will destroy lebrons legacy by taking away his only chance at multiple titles

kobe will retire at the same time wade is finished and just hanging around in the league 3-4 years from now


in that time span lebron will lose atleast 2 more times in the finals...


i truly believe kobe can either make or break lebrons career over the next 3-4 seasons..
