Default kobe retirement thread

Made this thread for all the kobe fans to stop comparing kobe to the people still playing, it's unfair to compare career stats to guys still in their peak like lebron.

In this thread we should remember:
- his 2 fvmps, back to back champ.
- his sidekick play, critical for for the first three peet
- the beautiful ring he gave to his wife to celebrate thier faithfullness.
- him going out as a warrior after leading a team of dleaguers to the playoffs in 2013, losing in a highly contest series against the NBA finalists.
- the lakers honoring kobe with the greatest contract for an inactive player, d rose be damned.
- the fact that he denied scumbag k malone a ring, always a plus in my book
- his potential to become full time CoachBE and him mentoring nick young to superstardom.
- exceptional career without stacked teams like lebron and durant. If kobe had 2 all stars on his team he would of put boston's 8 in a row in danger.

Also, together with the other retired player stans we can discuss the good ole days when we was young, life was great, and advanced stats were used only by fat computer nerds and not by team paid statisticians, advanced stats that dilute the soul of the game. Errybody that played knows that kobe is the GOAT closer, these new era fat dumb nerds shouldn't talk about percentage here, here we keepin it oldskool, a true player thing.

Humor me--who was MJ a sidekick to? Stackhouse? Rip?

Damn, son, you're a clown.

I mostly agree, but post-prime Shaq was a side kick.

lol Jordan was a "sidekick" well past his prime. Kobe is the only one on that list who was a sidekick in his prime

Kobe demanded to be traded so he could go play w/ Shaq, who was projected to become a huge star in the league.

In the 2011 NBA finals he looked like a sidekick to me? You saying he would have won FMVP? I dont think so.
