Yet another reason why athletes are getting too much special treatment.

Imagine having a co worker like Kobe in your office, never talking to you because he thinks he is too good to talk to you. Or throwing another co worker under the bus for whatever politics going on between them two.

Seriously, if he wasn't a basketball player, Kobe would be perpetually unemployed with his attitude.

He now has a teammate ranked higher than him league wide, and another one with more MVPs than him, one of which Kobe implied should have been won by him, had he had better teammates. N!gga, you wasn't winning them with great teammates, so why whine about not winning some with Smush?

And if anyone knows about bitterness its this guy. So much butthurt in this thread over Smush frickin Parker. Its obvious there's a beef between him and Kobe cuz Kobe singled him out despite having many terrible teammates those years. Besides Kobe isn't saying anything that every media outlet and fan aside from irrational haters wasn't saying. The man needed more help and was playing with a roster of hot garbage.

So Smush is mad at Kobe for telling the truth? Kobe was trying to elevate his teammates to play better, try harder, think and play beyond just being average, and Smush is mad? If Kobe is wrong about Smush, why is Smush playing overseas? Why couldn't he get any time anywhere else in the league?

Maybe he just realized overseas players aren't selfish shot jacking jagg-offs who only seek personal glory, at the expense of their teammates?

It's not smush Parker fault Kobe didn't win MVP as the star player on the team it was Kobe's job to make his teammates better but instead he choose to shot jack and put them down

Kobe isn't some co-worker at the office. The better comparison is to a rock star.

Didn't live up to the hype? He's a consensus top 10 player of all time. Give me a ****ing break

Your hatred for Kobe is laughable.

Yeah, it must really suck being Kobe's teammate and winning all of those championships.

The reality is that Smush wasn't good enough to play in the NBA. lol at you acting like there's any other reason. You're pathetic dude

Kobe is arguably on the verge of being kicked out, very shortly

1) MJ
2) Kareem
3) Wilt
4) Russell
5) Magic
6) Bird
7) Shaq
8) Hakeem
9) Duncan
10) Kobe

If LeBron gets another MVP (4 total) and another ring (2 total) as the best player for the Heat again this season. Kobe's possibly on the verge to be on the outside looking in at the top ten of all-time.

I disagree. He's number 7 on my list.

It's absurd to say he didn't live up to the hype. Yeah, he won 5 rings and has countless accolades, what a disappointing career.

You have him ranked ahead of who exactly? And where would you rank LeBron if the guy gets another MVP and ring this season?

He's pretty clearly the second best SG to ever play the game.

1. Jordan
2. Kareem
3. Russell
4. Magic
5. Shaq
6. Wilt
7. Bird/Kobe
8. Kobe/Bird
9. Duncan
10. Hakeem

I'd probably put Lebron at the 10 spot if he won a ring this season, knocking Hakeem out. MVP's don't really mean anything to me. Steve Nash has just as many MVP's as Shaq and Kobe combined, so yeah...pretty much irrelevant to me.
