Stay on topic. Besides, Kobe can't even get out of the first round with the GOAT coach as the best player on his team. Kobe could only win with prime Shaq, while Wade won with over the hill Shaq. Kobe had Odom and Butler with Rudy T as coach and won 34 games and missed the playoffs. When Wade had Odom and Butler he won 42 games and got to the 2nd round.
The talent Kobe has had on his team the past few years is double what KG had. KG led teams to 50 wins with Hudson as the next best player and Flip as coach. Give Kobe a coach like Flip instead of Phil and the team wins less than 20 games.
ohh yeah??? where did ricky davis go? and when did KG won 50 games?
do you watch lakers basketball or just make statements up? go and look how many games odom, butler and kobe himself missed when they were togheter under rudy T
Also whats important??? taking a team to playoffs or getting out of first round? if you cant differentiate between the 2 ...then you have have a head problem
When Shaq won in heat...they had tons of good players ...like zo,haslem and posey........
Great players have to be surrounded with the right talent to contend and thats a fact. I dont think its totally fair to say that if a star can't bring his team deep in the playoffs he is a loser. Injuries, lack of talent etc. play a huge role. Look at the Heat now 2 years ago they were champs today they are trash. Thats a team with Shaq & Wade etc. So does this mean wade sucks? Lets look at denver too Iverson & Melo and very good talent around them but this team is Mediocre at best , does that mean AI , Melo sucks? anyway i hope u guys caught my drift
