Wasn't this exact argument made by Kobetards that if LeBron couldn't win with Wade & Bosh it would diminish his legacy? Oh, these rules don't apply now?

Hypocrisy much?

Losing in the Finals doesnt tarnish your legacy unless you dont have one. look at Magic, Bird, Shaq they all lost it happens.

Kobes legacy is already a lock. He's stock will only go up at his age.


Kobe Bryant.

Kobe's already a top 10 player at this point; he won't cease to be one because of anything he hypothetically fails to do from here on out.

plus... the heat are almost just as stacked as LA.

so itel be kobe/nash/howard/artest/jamison vs lebron/wade/bosh/lewis/allen

i say the lakers are better. but its not like the lakers have as big an advantage as the heat had over dallas in 2011 AND STILL LOST


so by the OP's logit. theres no way lebron should ever be top 10


Bosh might not be a HOFer. And maybe no 17th season players have been FMVP, but 34 year olds have...
