I love this.
The most outrageous statement I’ve seen all year.
Before reading this, remember, I’m a Denver fan, so my opinion on these 3 is completely unaffected by who I support.
Firstly, Rose is earning more than LeBron did in the first year of his Heat contract. Basically, his contract is bigger than LeBron’s, and he is NOT as good as LeBron. Or Kobe, for that matter. I’m sorry, that’s just a fact.
Also, people say Rose is “clutch.” Here’s a nice fact for them.
During the 2011 playoffs, Rose averaged 27.1 points per game, but only shot 39% from the field and 24% for three pointers.
THAT’S NOT CLUTCH AT ALL. CLUTCH IS COMING UP BIG WHEN IT MATTERS MOST AND THE PLAYOFFS ARE ALL THAT MATTER. CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR REGULAR SEASON MVP FOR BEING SO BIG ON THE BIG STAGE.
But, obviously we overlook the fact that he was garbage because he’s “doing it for the city.” The same city that he’s currently STEALING like $16M from. Imagine if you could get paid $16M without actually creating a single product. I mean, Luke Walton has been more productive than Rose this season.
And, LeBron does it for the money? After Rose signed the second biggest sneaker deal in history ($280M from Adidas as they try desperately to be trendy and hip and continuously come up short because they didn’t sign LeBron, KD or Kobe). Obviously he’s earning that money “for the city,” and not to fulfill whatever wants he has in life.
Kobe does it for the fame? I remember when he stubbornly demanded a trade OUT of LA, aka the biggest market in the NBA. Obviously his want to play for a team where he is wanted and can play the game his way is just another cry for more fame, though, despite already being in one of the most famous cities in the world.
People say LeBron fans are dumb, that Heat fans are dumb, and sure, some of them are, but come on, this is taking it to another level.
Look, I’m a huge Derrick Rose fan, but this is fucking stupid. Yes, Derrick Rose is raw and he works ridiculously hard. He’s one of my favorite athletes. But that doesn’t mean you have to downplay other athletes just to explain how great he is. LeBron works every bit as hard as D. Rose does. And Kobe? He’s probably the hardest working athlete of all-time. Seriously Bulls fans, calm the fuck down.
These joints are wet as fuck!
Definitely want one.
Chris Palmer: Who would you most like to play one-on-one, either active or retired?
Kobe: Jordan. No question.
Chris Palmer: What would happen?
Kobe: I’m not sure, but he would win some and I would win some in a seven-game series. It would probably come down to the last few shots.
Chris Palmer: You versus LeBron? Who wins?
Kobe: Me. No question. As far as one-on-one, I’m the best to ever do it.
Chris Palmer: Damn. That's pretty confident.
Kobe: LeBron is a terrific all-around, five-on-five basketball player who’s an all-time great. But I’d get him.
Chris Palmer: Who could get you?
Kobe: Kevin Durant is the guy that would give me the most trouble. With his length and ability to use the dribble, he’d be tough.
Chris Palmer: I always wanted to see you play Tracy McGrady
Kobe: I played T-Mac. I cooked him. Roasted him. Wasn’t even close. Ask him, he’ll tell you. When I was about 20, we were in Germany doing some promotional stuff for that other sneaker company and we played basketball every day. We were in the gym all the time. We played three games of one-on-one to 11. I won all three games. One game I won 11-2. After the third game he said he had back spasms and couldn’t play anymore.
Chris Palmer: His back bothered him for most of his career.
Kobe: Well, now you know.

2 of the Greatest.
Reporter: Kobe, a college kid scored 138 points tonight and took over 100 shots.
Kobe: "Wow ... No kidding? Where?"
Reporter: Grinnell college in Iowa.
Kobe: "Really? Wow. That's impressive. That's crazy. I don't care what level you're at. Scoring 138 points is pretty insane. How many 3s did he shoot?"
Kobe: "Holy shit. How many points did they score as a team?"
Reporter: No other starter had double figures.
Kobe: "That's incredible."
Reporter: Dude on the other team scored 71 points and lost.
Kobe: "That's amazing. He must have been wearing the Mambas, man. Only Mambas have no conscious to shoot the ball like that."
Reporter: If you did that, would people be celebrating you?
Kobe: "Would people be celebrating me if I scored 138 points? You know how it is, some people would, some people wouldn't. They can all kiss my ass. I'm sure he feels the same way. If you score 138 points, you kind of have a license to tell people to fuck off."
Kobe Bryant > Michael Jordan. #FASHION
After Kobe’s horrible shooting night in New Orleans, let’s take a loot at his field goal percentage.
GS: 16-28, 57%
NJ: 10-16, 62.5%
LAC: 13-19, 68%
And that last shot he made tonight? Unguardable.
