Default James Worthy Ripping David Stern and Stu Jackson

He was on the Lakers post game show on KCAL 9 he basically said that the NBA has changed and that they're handing out suspensions too easily
- The players can't talk to refs anymore
- Kobe is being singled out
- Conspiracy theory against Kobe
- Doesn't care if Stu Jackson is watching
- He's seen that shooting motion various times
- Reiterated Jaric's sentiments about the situation (that he didn't feel Kobe deserves to be suspended and that it was unintentional
- If the player himself is saying it, then there's absolutely no need for suspension
- No way to investigate this.. hard for the players to say anything about it because of fines.. they have too much power and there's nothing to do about it
- He's glad he's not playing the game anymore

Doesn't matter if that play was is unintentional. What's done is done. And who cares of what his has been has to say. Why would Worthy back Kobe up for? Nobody likes Kobe. Worthy has no right to say things like that to Stern and Jackson.

I think we have all see Kobe do that quick swipe after a shot. Even when its open he does it sometimes and comes down hands behind his back.

Hwo does Worthy have no right to say that?

He did play in the league and participated in the NBA so i think he does have a right to say it. Once you are involved in something for awhile you still want it to be great so im sure Worthy is concerned.

Worthy is and was a great. So respect the greats first of all. And second of all If your a true fan of basketball in general you would know that. And third of all, He can say whatever the hell he wants. He aint playing in the league and its freedom of speech. I aint taking sides or anything I am just saying.

I have no problem with the Kobe suspensions and I'm glad he got suspended. No I'm not a Kobe h@ter, I just don't like players that flare their limbs around trying to draw fouls (which is what Kobe was doing on both occasions). I didn't like the Miller kick either. Kobe can't have it both ways.

What needs to happen is this league needs to get back to where it used to be in the old days. Where a foul was a foul and none of this "Superstar" treatment crap. Why do you think America now gets its butt kicked in Intl. play, because they don't care who you are, a travel is a travel and they don't allow that drive into to someone flop around draw the foul BS, that Wade got in last years playoffs. I'm getting off topic here.

Kobe shouldn't swing his arms around trying to draw fouls, he made his bed and lied in it tonight.

The league also didn't have much of a choice either, they were painted into a corner after the first suspension. What did you want them to say.......Ginobili is more special, it was the same exact play.

Exactly, if they did he wouldn't be working the post game show on KCAL, he'd be at a real station, like KTLA.

I like Kobe and for that what u said is not true. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion and can say anything to anyone. U need to meditate dont think that youre god that everything you say is sacred.... dont get carried :
