Default Head to Head Ray Allen holds Kobe to 23.6 PPG and 43% Shooting.

Why is this considered such a huge mismatch? Ray Allen, for whatever reason, is capable of containing Kobe .

This isn't the same Kobe Bryant and Ray Allen, you were accustomed of seeing back in the Sonics/Lakers days.

Did you see what Kobe did to Bowen last series? And I think Bowen is a better defender than Allen and we're talking MJ performances from the MVP lately..

I actually agree. Not just Allen but Pierce as well. Both have usually played Kobe very well throughout all of their matchups in the past.
Both have always also came off as very anti Kobe to me and I believe that might've been the reason they played him so well. They'd put a lot into those games and they'd really want it. I believe both would get into his head in the past.
Now obviously, they"ll want it again.

But yeah, Kobe's different now. I fully expect him to dominate. His mindset will be different and honestly, I really expect him to bring it. And I mean that, bring it.

If Ray wears that magical sleeve of his, he might have a chance at it lol.

Ray actually plays good against Kobe, he looks for that challenge. Hell, I don't even think he likes Kobe!

Ya think?

There was a huge fuss about Ray predicting Kobe would demand a trade in a few years following the Shaq trade, which he did.

Ray and Kobe have bad blood between them thats certain.

I don't know why this is brought up because this is more due to chance than Ray Allen's defense. Ray Allen was never remembered as a tenacious or even solid defender. From the start of his career he has been considered soft. Former coach of Ray Allen's George Karl once called Ray Allen a "Doll" because of how soft he played.

It is true Kobe Bryant and Ray Allen don't like each other. If I can recall correctly, they had a little dispute during a pre-season game while Ray Allen was still in the Sonics. Ray Allen also has had some exceptional games against Kobe Bryant throughout his career.

I have a question. When Kobe destroys Ray Allen during the times he is actually allowed to guard him will you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when you decided to make this dumb thread? Kobe is a man on a mission, his confidence is at an all time high, Ray Allen still hasn't climbed all the way out of the gutter yet.
