There you go chubby.

Why do you think he fell to 16th? Nobody wanted a spoiled brat on their roster.



LOL, yeah and after tomorrow night he'll have 5 NBA Championships.
People, what you are dealing with here is a Frisco Bay area Norcaler. They hate and envy everything Socal.
Hey, how'd those Golden State Warriors do this year? Maybe next year they'll even bring NBA caliber basketball to the Bay area. :rofl:

Kobe wasn't the "best at what he does" when he was first drafted, if so, he would have started over Eddie Jones his rookie year. The funny part is that the national media lambasted Eli Manning for refusing to sign with San Diego if drafted by them #1 overall and forcing a trade to NY but no one outside of Charlotte seems to remember Kobe coming straight out of high school and his agent saying he wouldn't play anywhere other than LA. Imagine the backlash if Lebron James (who actually WAS the #1 pick and one of the most hyped prospects in NBA history) had taken the same hard stance about who he would and wouldn't play for.



Kobe was an 18 year old with potential. Same as Andrew Bynum was when the Lakers got him with the 10th pick. You have to be able to wait for them to develop. Expecting them to push aside an established NBA starter is both ignorant as well as damaging to their future in the NBA.
Now Eli was a 3 year starter in College with great blood lines ready to excel in the NFL. The Chargers took him anyway despite his demands and proceeded to buttfug the Giants in a draft day trade. The fact Charlotte wasn't able to do the same to Los Angeles is on your team at the time. Tough poo.

So basically you're agreeing with me, in that Kobe was not established and was acting pretty damned uppity for an 18 year old by demanding to only play for certain team(s).

No, I'm saying the potential was there, but expecting him to perform at an NBA level for 82 games at 18 would have been stupid. An outstanding GM like Jerry West knew this and knew Kobe would be great, then proceeded to fug Charlotte who was incapable of getting proper compensation for Kobe and the rest is history. That's a you issue.

You're saying that our ownership was made up of idiots. I agree with that. Does it change the fact that Kobe is no different that Eli Manning for being a baby and saying that he only wants to play for one team even though he hadn't even played a minute of a professional sport? No.
