The fact that Kobe puts himself in the same breath as MJ is absolutely priceless.

I give Kobe huge props for still motivating Dwight instead of just giving up on him and mentally crushing him for being such a *****. Mature Kobe is the best.

Shaq did the same thing to Kobe, they hated each other. What did Kobe do? He ran to Jim Gray and talked sh*t about Shaq on television/media.

Now the shoe is on the other foot, Kobe wants to push Dwight's buttons and make him more fierce. Imagine if Dwight ran to the cameras and talked sh*t about Kobe chucking 20+ shots a game? Laker stans would be livid. Hypocrisy at it's finest.

I can't think of a single champion who plays the game as light-hearted as Dwight seems to play. Maybe Magic, but he was cold-blooded as well.

Kobe is a terrible leader though. He has never motivated anyone. Kobe has been like the talented problem child his whole career.

Caron achieved more individually and team wise WITHOUT Kobe.

Caron became an allstar due to training early mornings with Kobe, 1v1s with Kobe and following a training program Kobe gave him.

Vujacic started practicing with Gawdbe and became decent one season.
