Kobe fans are insecure about Lebron
Jordan fans are insecure about lebron, used to be Kobe
Lebron fans are insecure about MJ and Kobe
Notice how a ton of these fans hate the other player
It's because deep down they fear them taking the attention off of their favorite player
This is basic psychology
So really when you see all the kobe, lebron or Jordan hate, it is really just them praising that player and going a different way about it..... They know deep down that player is GREAT and a threat, so they reject
My best advise is just to enjoy these players, cause the same dudes who are hating on kobe and lebron and gonna be defending them when the next generation of fans are saying "Teddy TwoShoes" would kill LBJ and the kobester
No offense dude, but this has been posted 1000x. Nobody cares (for better or for worse).
The forum is populated by stans of those three players (and to a lesser extent super-fans of Durant and Wilt). I don't think that's ever going to change. It's a players' league, fans are always going to be drawn to stars. It is what it is.
Jordan fans are not insecure about anybody really...Just more annoyed that players like Lebron or Kobe would be compared to him...Now other all time greats like Wilt, Russell, Oscar, Magic, etc....I don't see too many actual Jordan fans offended at people putting those guys over him...
Also, I like Jordan, Kobe, and Lebron...I know that's rare...Actually I don't really dislike any player, and that's probably even rarer......
Its mostly Lebron and MJ fans w/ a few hardcore Kobe stans
i made a thread about Andrei Kirilenko and his superb defense and wouldnt u guess it there was a Lebron stan that for w/e reason tried to bring him up. Theyre so insecure about his status and lack of skills, being overreliant on athleticism and his natural physical gifts. Theres nothing wrong with that players dominate in different ways. And u NEVER want to have intelligent discussions with them about his defense.............youd think Lebron was Pippen on steroids with how some of them talk about it
MJs the GOAT and somehow his stans still find a way to overrate him
I view MJ, Kobe, Wade, and Bron as the Four Horsemen in terms of combining alpha dog ability, great passing, great defense, great rebounding for perimeter guys AND freak athletic above the rim ability in one. Other guys are close but are missing an element like Drexler, Hill, T-Mac, Penny, Pippen etc. But those four are on their own level in my opinion.
Sure MJ is the GOAT. But Bron is the most versatile player of all time. What Wade has done at 6'4 is EPIC! And for as much heat as Kobe catches, U could say that he ARGUABLY has the greatest scoring skillset of all time. YES even over MJ because Kobe exploited the three ball way more than MJ. So of course we all have our opinions, but u can agree to disagree. BUT YET see the greatness of these legends. No need for insecurity!!
