Default So it's Kobe's team now.. just like Heat were Wade's team right?

So you guys say it is Kobe's team because he is the man who spend years of his career in LA, he is the leader even if it he isn't the best player in the team anymore..

well remember what people said about the Miami Heat when Lebron and Bosh joined?

It was Wade's team
-he was the face of the franchise
-been there since rookie season
-won Miami's first championship there, almost single handedly
-true leader of the team, even if Lebron's a better player
-it will always be Wade's team

so guess what happened?

Lebron took over. Moreso in the playoffs than the regular season. And then in 2012, the trend continued and Lebron took over even more.

And yes, Dwight may take over in a similar fashion.





But also, Wade allowed Lebron to do it. Kobe may not.

someone like shaq would respond.

Shaq: Wade, I served with Kobe Bryant, I knew Kobe Bryant, Kobe Bryant was a friend of mine. Wade, you're no Kobe Bryant.

To be fair, if Lebron had joined the Lakers it would be Lebron's team without a doubt.

Not even close to the same thing. Kobe isn't a b***h like Wade, who's a totally different player now, than he was 7 years ago. What happened to Dwayne "Fall Down 6 Times, Get Up 7" Wade? Kobe is the same guy he always was. There goes yet another ridiculous theory

When Lebron joined the heat, the general consensus here was that it was still wades team, unless of course you asked any lebron nut hugger. Eventually, through his performance in both the reg season and play offs, lebron took over this team and made it his own.

The situation in LA will be no different. This IS kobe's team. Can Dwight drastically out play him this season and make this team his? Possibly, but until that does happen, it still is Kobe's team.

that's right.
this will be the exact same situation.

Kobe is in self denial right now and soon Dwight will have to take over. Kobe will not take that well, so he tries to shoot more and end up costing the Lakers 2013 season. In 2014, Dwight will start dominating the team n tell kobe to shut up or retire

Heat:
Wade's franchise
LeBron's best player / leader

Lakers:
Kobe's franchise
D12 best player
Steve Nash leader

That's how I see it breaking down, honestly.

Kobe won't let it happen. He'll keep the ball in his hands and away from Nash's and Dwight's and be a determent to his team

i like how everyones ignoring one key difference



wade is happy being #2


kobe - "i eat first. its my team"




even if kobe was somehow lesser than dwight ( which he isnt ). kobe will still average near 30ppg and take home finals mvps just out of the fact that he has waaay more pull with the lakers

another key factor is popularity.. lebron was twice as popular as wade and more worth making the face of the franchise


kobe on the other hand is 10 times as well known, popular than dwight


so keep dreaming guys

With the team Lakers have right now, your wishes regarding Kobe averaging near 30ppg and taking home Finals mvp just for the sake of him never backing down, will bite you in the ass so hard at the end.
