Kobe refused to play for Charlotte and went to the Lakers and won his first three in Shaq's shadow.


Please explain where you come up with that story?

Charlotte and LA agreed to trade draft picks the day before the draft and the Lakers didn't tell Charlotte who to draft until 5 minutes before their pick was up.

Alright, after looking into it a little more I might have been a little off on that one... that's just the way I remembered it at the time based on the way the whole thing happened.

Even though they made a deal to trade Kobe for Divac this is an excerpt from an article about the Hornet's former owner, Bob Bass, looking back at his decision on trading Kobe:

Bryant canceled a workout with the Sacramento Kings, who had the No. 14 pick in the first round in 1996 and declined to work out for the Hornets. His agent, Arn Tellem, also told the Hornets, according to Bass, that Bryant did not want to play in a small market such as Charlotte.
Divac initially did not want to play for the Hornets, preferring to stay in L.A. where his wife was pursuing an acting career.

Even though it happened the way it did, regardless, it seems like Kobe had very little interest in playing for Charlotte.

So even still, the Kobe trade aside, my point still stands about arguing who has the most rings makes them the superior player is ridiculous. Kobe and Lebron came into two completely different situations. Not to mention it's entirely (and very) possible for the Miami Heat to win a few NBA championships in the coming years.

Kobe was actually a more impressive player in his prime but it was wasted while he was surrounded by Smush Parker and Kwame Brown.

KT nobody take you seriously. The MVP just goes to the best player on the best team, not the best player. I think everyone would agree Kobe should have 3-4 if it were best player. The years he averaged 35 PPG, 9 straight 40 point games, 4 straight 50 point games, 62 in 3 quarters. 81 point game... Y'all forget to quickly. Kobe is the rawest scorer we've probably ever seen.

LeBron joined 2 superstars for the Championship when he couldn't do it in Cleveland. There are 3 superstars in there prime on that team... Kobe's championship teams only had him and either Shaq or Gasol.

The Miami Heat continue to shred the rest of the NBA, having now won 19 in a row (and just one win shy of becoming only the 5th team in League history to rip off 20 straight W’s). LeBron James knows that what they’re doing is pretty damn special. Per Fox Sports and ESPN: “He was asked if he will at least be able to appreciate the streak when he retires. Suddenly, James’ tone changed. Suddenly, he was willing to say his Heat are indeed experiencing one of the greatest runs in NBA history. "No, I’ll probably look back on it before then," James said.

"Let’s be honest, guys, we’re not sitting here and saying this is not something special. This is an unbelievable streak that we’re on. We’re playing great basketball. We win in different phases of the game. We’re playing different syles. We’ve won every game, on the road, at home. Double overtime games. End-of-regulation games. Whatever the case may be, we’ve been able to pull games out. So I’m not going to sit here and say that it’s not special what we’re doing.’"[...]

The streak has jarred the Heat into truly caring about every game — something that’s a challenge for any NBA team during this marathon season and especially the defending champs, who have the long haul at the front of their minds — and it has finally brought them to their potential. ‘You know you’re a part of history right now, but you just want to keep winning and keep it up,’ said Dwyane Wade. ‘This team is put together to win championships, that’s what we’re measured by and that’s what we measure ourselves by … but this is a special time.’”

27 points, 8 assists, 7 rebounds, 2 steals for the MVP tonight. 20 straight wins is an ELITE club. Only T-Mac's 2008 Rockets, Lew Alcindor's 71 Bucks, and Wilt Chamberlain's 72 Lakers are in it. The dominance continues.

Behind LeBron's 22 points, 12 rebounds, 8 assists, the Heat extend their winning streak to 22 games, tying the 08 Rockets for 2nd place all time. They face Boston in Boston tomorrow night.

That was a nasty jam on Terry. Lebron was clutch in the 4th, made a huge shot to give Miami the lead. He's got a monster stat line tonight with 37pts 12asts 7rbs. He is just playing lights out...there is nobody on his level.

Man, Lebron is playing better than Kobe has at any stretch in his career. It's amazing watching him out there. Micheal's my favorite player ever, and the greatest player ever, but he was crazy to say he'd take Kobe over Lebron.

Nice game winner by LeBron to keep the streak going. Only Wilt led his team to more consecutive wins than King.

Not too shabby.
Maybe they'll get close to 33 reg season wins before it's all through and catch The Logo and Wilt
.
Here's a better goal.
Match the 2000-2001 Los Angeles Lakers Playoff record.
An astounding 15-1 record on the way to the Championship againt the NBA's finest.

shaq was a beast and underappreciated by kobe fluffers

if this team had a center like that it might challenge the bulls 72-10 record

a healthy dwight howard on the heat. lebron would feed him for 12 assists a night. and still drop a 28 ppg.
