    In response to "Re: Kobe is no MJ": [QUOTE]Kobe never calls himself the 2nd coming of MJ. And historically, he would get angry with reporters always making those comparisons. This is a different era, different players, different syles. The league has changed the rules to make the NBA more balanced. It introduced the 3-point shot, the killer luxury tax, allowed for zone defense to counteract the dominance of Shaq O'Neal, allows for more hand-checking & flexbility for the refs to influence games by calling even phantom flagrant fouls, & on & on....That's why you have professional flopping, something Kobe detests. Yes Kobe is no MJ. Bryant stands out on his own for his own accomplishments and he is a competitor with serious flaws. He plays injured, hogs the ball too much that dusrupts the team & makes the game harder than it should be. But without him, the Lakers would not have 5 titles. And if he played for any other franchise, he would get the same accolades & criticism. So quit comparing apples & oranges. Some of the greatest players in the NBA never won a title or won far fewer titles than Kobe. When he retires and people look back at his career, people will remember his achievements, his exceptional talent. Posted by LakerFan67[/QUOTE] Fair and objective analysis 67. The corollary to your point about his 5 rings though, is that if he didn't play for the lakers and had the likes of Shaq and Gasol, he may have zero rings also.

    He may have said that he's not the 2nd coming, but he also said that his only rivals are MJ and Magic, which is delusional.
