That was the weakest display of dribbling I've ever seen from Kobe. That video's an insult to his work ethic.

17 years with 1MVP award. You want to argue that he's better than James or Durant? Because that's a short, easy argument.
Didn't know mods could say stupid shit like this.

Well done, sir.

Kobe isn't playing well because it's his 17th season and 34 years of age.

Kobe is the best player right now this season regardless of age and season.

How many players in their prime would die to have Kobe's stat line so far.


What else is new when you are the best player this season? Kobe's been compared to everyone and those he was compared to, have all declined. First it was Wade, then it was Lebron and now he's being compared to Melo.

Best players this season:

1. Kobe
2. Melo
3. Lebron

4. Durant

Under .500 record despite having the most stacked team in the league. Lebron, Melo, and Durant have all been playing equally as good if not better and their teams all have better records despite having less talent.(with Wade's injury otherwise Miami is on par w/talent)

What is he saying that's not true? Kobe does have a great work ethic but to insinuate that there are other guys in the league who don't have a similar one is stupid and false.

He does only have 1 MVP award.

Lebron James and Kevin Durant are both better players RIGHT NOW. Only a moron thinks otherwise.

Of course. And Lebron James isn't polarizing?

Yet he is able to win. You know why? Because hes actually as good as hyped up.

You can go through Kobe's whole career, and you realize, the MVP he got, is the only one he actually deserves. So I don't know why there is all this complaining and new excuses coming up. One guy used "MVP is subjective"...
Really? That's what they're coming up with these days? Any award given in the NBA is subjective, doesn't take away the fact that the regular season MVP, just like in 99% of sports is the most prestigious award you can receive.

Well, Hakeem, Kobe, and Shaq are all sitting comfortably in the top ten with just one MVP each, meanwhile some guys with 2 or 3 are still on the outside looking in, so that tells you about the credibility of the MVP award.

DAMMIT Kobe!!! Why did you have to be so polarizing?

Just think guys, if Kobe wasn't so polarizing he'd have....ALL the MVP awards since 2005ish. Instead, he's left with a single and disputable MVP award.

And since there's so many of you Kobe fanboys...

Do you guys get together like once or twice a week to discuss the stupid shit you're going to come up with in order to prop your boy up?

Good one.

People on ISH are always bitching about Kobe's all defensive team awards, but how are those awards any less credible than the MVP? It's voted on by the media, isn't it?

MVP just doesn't mean that much to me. It doesn't determine who the best player in the league is. If it did, Kobe and Shaq would have more than 1 each. Sure, they get it right sometimes, but they've also gotten wrong more than a few times.

Its debatable at times, but in Kobe's case, he doesn't have a debatable case outside of the one he actually won.

The criteria has always stayed the same for MVP. You not valuing MVP's much? Sure. Its because you're a Kobe fan. MVP tells you a guy was dominating in his era. You're lying anyway. Like any fan, everyone comes in with champion and MVP predictions. You know why? Its what the fans care about. People don't come in with DPOY predictions, or Finals MVP, its the MVP everyone cares about. It places you above your peers. You were the most impactful and valuable piece in the NBA over a whole season.

Actually, all defensive teams are voted on by coaches. MVP's are voted on by guys like Bill Simmons.....

Yep, and Kobe being so polarizing has essentially turned into a big media conspiracy, and it's the only explanation as to why he only has one MVP.

If people can't see that, then they're f***ing stupid.
