The fact is that Kobe can't even make it to the second round of the playoffs without Shaq and his old teammates, and it just goes to show that he's not a good team player. So stop it with the "Oh, if he had the Mavs supporting cast...." bull****. The fact is, it's about knowing how to cope with your teammates and succeeding with them, instead of trying to break scoring records and taking 70% of the team's shots.
Can you read? The 2 more rings post was clearly a response to the poster '-primetime-' and his "if Dirk had Shaq.." game, I played along. As for your "Kobe can't get out of the second round", hence he aint a good team player bullcrap, look child, the Mavs didn't even make it out of the first round with a great team, so what makes you think Kobe with a much worse team can?
Heck, forget comparing the Lakers to the Mavs, just look at the Lakers roster and watch them play, and tell me on what basis do you say Kobe can do better with that team around him?
You're just posting for the hell of it, and are a waste of time.
