Default Can't believe I'm doing this...

I enjoyed this article, and yes I do see why Kobe is fustrated with Howard, and I respect that he has asked past legends like Magic for advice. For whatever I think about his actions on the court and what he should be doing, he has made me at least appreciate a dying breed in today's basketball, someone so intense on winning that he would literally sell his mother to get another title. A guy who is willing to fight to win games, no matter how insane I think he goes about doing it, he does care and he isn't getting the support that Howard should be giving.

For maybe the one and only time I'll give credit to Kobe, here's a shout out to you Kobe for all the bashing that I do on ISH, you aint that bad

P.S. This wasn't easy

I am glad you converted and a lot of people have been praising Kobe and feeling sorry for him when they are usually haters.

I guess it's true....Kobe bless you.

I don't feel sorry for him as such, the guy has had a pretty good run of things throughout his career at the Lakers, I just think it's hard for him to accept a lack of success, when there is very capable players around him who don't seem to give the same intensity ie Howard.

I'm one of the few here who believe that Mike D and the Lakers will turn it around. Simply because I know what a Nash run team with this many weapons is capable of in this system.

I don't feel sorry for him, I simply respect a player who is intense on winning and has the old school toughness in him.

I guess I feel a little bad for him.
Their 2nd best player is a guy who would rather be in front of a camera than on a basketball court, trading away a real low post scorer to get him.
They signed a 40 year old point guard who has been kept on the court by the miracle doctors of the Pheonix Suns for years.
The usually studly Pau is developing bad knees.
MWP, well, that's one bright spot I guess.

All in all, almost every move they made to improve this past off season has come back to bit them in the a**, gotta feel at least a little for Kobe. On the plus side, most of the Kobe nut huggers are in hiding as they watch their team implode.

Think I'm just tired. Tired of talking about him, tired of disliking someone for so long, I'm getting old too and i get too carried away with trying to convince other people of my opinion, like it's gonna change anything...

Not sure if I call this a resignation, but I guess I'm just going to say good things when players do good things, if I spent my time analysing all the bad, it's just going to do my head in.

I've got a lot of respect for Kobe. It's his fans that I can't stand.

Do you think Kobe wants to win more rings than Jordan or just tie him with 6?
