Default players don't wanna play with kobe cause players don't like hard work

real talk. that's all that is. Kobe is the truth serum and he screens out all the bullshitters from the competitors, the lemons from the cherries. This new generation of players have grown up with the entitled attitude and the sense that everything should just be handed to them and love be showered on them unconditionally. They are not use to the demands and expectations of a Kobe Bryant. Someone who will ask of them what he asks of himself, greatness. Most of these young kids grew up without any discipline so of course they would be averse to true leader like Kobe. Instead they just wanna join superfriend teams and orchestrate Harlem Shake videos or pregame routines.

like medicine, Kobe isn't for everyone.

I think a lot of it also has to do with the fact they don't want to get all the blame if they don't win it all. Dwight got left holding the bag and I think other free agents see that and get scared away. and there is also the fact he is like 34.

everybody wants to be the man these days. except wade and bosh. they like being b*tches


howard needs to learn from them and accept his b*tch role like gasol and odom did back in 09 and 10


kobes way is the winning way. others need to buy in though

The main thing is the guy is 34 and is coming back from a serious injury. How would a team like Houston not be a much better situation? Its always going to be Kobe's team. Why does he want to play on Kobe's team while dealing with a losing situation? No mater what the Lakers do next season, they're going to be mediocre at best until they get some cap space and Kobe takes a paycut.

you forgot that part. they don't like to work hard and still get hated. Pau Gasol is the perfect example of the ppl of LA being ungrateful shits.

Exactly. Gasol was the fall guy for everything in LA. What other stars would be willing to be the whipping boy? Especially for a team that is in decline?

kobe averaged 27.3ppg on 20 FGA's with 6.0 apg last year

michael jordan averaged 30.1ppg on 23 FGA's with 5.3 apg for his career

and michael jordan is an even bigger egotistical a**hole ball hog



difference is back in the day role players and 2nd fiddles were tougher and more oldschool. didn't mind fallowing orders and doing hard work to win games without getting much credit. they did it cause they wanted to win. today its all about having fun and joking around. being friends instead of having leaders. everyone wants the spotlight


players are b*tches these days...

Never mentioned anything about Jordan.

Basketball is a TEAM sport. Gotta move the ball and play defense to win. Two things Kobe knows nothing about.
