I was making the post too but as soon as I got to the players tribune the site was down. Probably because all the traffic.

Best combination of talent and hard work of his generation.

Definitely marks an era in my life s I started watching Kobe as a high schooler in LA.

Glad he's realizing his mortality. That being said, I was 10 when he was drafted and now about to turn 30...he's been a part of so many moments in my life and I'm forever grateful to what he's done for the franchise.

One of the few players I literally had to stop hating because I just couldn't...played too well to hate on.

One of the best heroes (for LA) and villains (for everyone else) the sport has seen. The 2nd best SG ever.

I think that's it's probably Anthony bennett or some one else
but kobe has a chance to legitimately get that title
it would be crazy if one of the worst players in the league got an AS spot
iirc AI didn't play, kobe better do the same if he gets voted in

For him to have had the run he's had, from a rookie until the Achilles injury a couple of years ago, is amazing and if nothing else, he's definitely on the Mt. Rushmore of Laker greats.

My favorite moment of his is probably the Game 7 of the '09 Finals. It wasn't his best game statistically, but the way he played within his abilities at the time and shifted his attention from gunning to rebounding and facilitating really was a special moment.

Salut

In response to Reply # 91


  

          

Doc and Thibs doubled him from the start because they knew he had to shoot. Almost stole them a game 7.

Kobe had a lot of great games. His most hurtful, however, was when he almost willie winguyed his team out of title, rivaled only when he did willie winguy the lakers out of a game 4 win in the second half during the last great Shaq game in 2004.

97. "LOL, the narratives you make up are just sad"
In response to Reply # 94


  

          

He wasn't being doubled, he was taking and missing a lot of contested shots....as was the rest of the team (except Ron who saved our ass in the first half...bc I still think he had no idea he was even playing in a playoff game, let alone a game 7 of the Finals, and DFish because he was doing what he does, getting great looks off rotations). With his poor shooting night, he still got to the line 15 times....and o btw, 15 boards (3 less than Pau, 8 more than the 3rd leader in boards in LO) in a series in which the winner of every single game had the edge in rebounds.

I know you wouldn't understand winning context because you're a Sixers fan but you should you just let this nonsense go bc it's making you look more and more foolish (even more so than making Kobe your avi after 81).

Also, thank you for getting Ron Artest The God a ring. No one deserved it more than the Palace God

lmao but it's been a pleasure watching Bean play. He was Jordan-lite for all intents and purposes. Would have loved him like a son if he played for the Bulls.

but i think a lot of Lakers fans would like the chance to see him play one last time. my notoriously cheap grandfather, a long-time fan who always refused to spend money on a ticket, asked me to take him to his first Lakers game after hearing about the announcement

it'll be obnoxious and lame in its execution, and this article is probably correct for all practical purposes, but i still think there's an important sentimental value of him playing out the season *shrug*

In 30 years, these old mofos gonna be like "I saw the greats like AI, T-Mac, Lebron, Steve Francis, and....wait grandson, why you asking about that bitch ass mothafucka Kobe??? He was garbage!!!! I did see him, he airballed a three when I saw him! Sorry mothafucka! He couldn't hold a candle to JR Smith."

80. "I'm honestly thankful for the amount of MAD he made me"
In response to Reply # 68


  

          

Cause he's probably the last athlete that'll ever make me that MAD. Look man, I'm 30, I honestly don't care about watching sports with the same passion I once I did, I have other things to do and worry about. I've lived in the epicenter of Kobe-dom all my life and hated him for most of it. He came up when I was a kid, was at his prime when I was at my angriest as a young adult, and faded as I've gotten older. Lebron is a few months older than me and I basically see anything he does good or bad through the same lens as I'd see things, and I see younger athletes as kids.

I've hated the way Kobe plays ball, hated his persona, really hated his nuthugging fans, and he's both won so much and proven himself so much it's made me really MAD, and also flamed out so spectacularly that it's made all the hating worth it. But in the end life turned out mostly OK despite anything that happens in the sports world, and I sort of felt I grew up from hating him? I honestly could not bring myself to hate some random athlete I've never met to that level again, but I'm glad I cared that much at some point, so thanks, Bean.

And I hope you shoot 20% for the rest of this season.

When Kobe is gone, there will be a huge void in the NBA.

When the Heat Death Star went down, so went with it a chance to follow in Kobe's footsteps

when it comes to hate, Kobe is the undisputed GOAT

I legit don't see who is going to step up and fill that void.


Curry has a bit of that asshole side to him but he looks too cute and fuzzy for people. Maybe if we win another championship or two people will start to see it


He was basically hushing the Utah crowd after that game winning three last night lol

This was the post title: "Um, Kobe has 44 with 5 minutes left in the 3rd quarter"

Nick got mad because I, a Knicks fan, posted it...and I wasn't posting to hate...I just had a feeling Kobe was about to do something special. But the post title says it all....cuz folks were casually following the scoreboard but no one was really paying attention to what he was doing.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

http://time.com/4133199/kareem-abdul-jabbar-kobe-bryant/


love this part:
Most important, you let me relearn

the glorious joys of basketball as a fan. In the stands

or on the couch, I am a cheering enthusiast,

rooting my team to victory.

You returned me to my childhood awe of just watching and loving the game.



"Retirement, embrace him like you did me"


MORE
Kobe Bryant Opens Up About His Decision to Retire
Expect Big Things Out Of Kobe’s Bryant’s Retirement
Dear Retirement from Basketball,

(for Kobe Bryant)



You don’t suck, retirement. I thought

You would. With no crowds to cheer.

No competitors to pump addicting adrenalin every day.

No satisfying sound of the ball swooshing through the net

Like a melon through silk.

No frown of frustration on your opponents’ faces.

No salty smell of victory as exhausted bodies

rush to the locker room.

No purpose.



I was wrong.



You gave me other gifts I wasn’t expecting. That final year

when each city I visited showered me with glory and gifts

and pure love. The fans cheered, stomped feet, battered hands,

not because I was scoring points in one last game,

but because they wished me well on whatever I did next.



They wanted to say thanks for the memories:

the games where the father waved the foam finger with his giggling young son,

the games where the family talked about thrilling plays on the car ride home,

the games where kids saw players make moves that seemed physically impossible,

that they would try to duplicate the next day on the playground.

The humility I felt that year made me strive to be worthy of their appreciation.

If no longer as a player, then as a man.



You were generous, retirement. You let me discover who I was

without a ball in my hand and a number on my back.

I found a man with many other passions.

As a player, I had dabbled in writing like a would-be singer

who only sings in the shower. But you gave me

precious time to find my more mature voice,

and the courage to share my words with the world.

Even when they didn’t cheer.



Most important, you let me relearn

the glorious joys of basketball as a fan. In the stands

or on the couch, I am a cheering enthusiast,

rooting my team to victory.

You returned me to my childhood awe of just watching and loving the game.



You also let me appreciate the magnificent young athletes who replaced me.

Knowing I wouldn’t have to face them on the court,

I didn’t have to worry about strategies,

I could just marvel.



Like I marveled at Kobe Bryant.

Lord, that man could soar, could score, could leap from shore to shore.

He brought poetry back to the game

and to the hearts of the fans.

The poetry of form and function, motion and mindfulness.

He saw the court the way a sculptor looks at a block of marble

and imagines the great art waiting to be revealed.

And he revealed it game after game.



Retirement, embrace him like you did me. Teach him

all that you taught me about finding who I was off the court.

My place in the community.

My purpose.

Most of all, help him realize that there is no such thing as retirement,

merely passing from one room into another.
