We heard this when Blake was drafted and was a rookie. We heard this last year and we are hearing it this year. I don't really recall the media asking Jordan his opinion on Iverson, Stackhouse etc. or other up and coming teams. Maybe I just didn't pay attention.

Kobe calls us legit contenders to win the title this year. WHY is this news? Why does his opinion matter? Kobe doesn't seem like much of a coach or a judge of talent,or else his team wouldn't have to pull out a miracle to make the playoffs this year.

Kobe isn't the end all in Los Angeles or the NBA world. And why ask Kobe these questions before or after his games? Why not ask him on a day off? Or does the media give two craps about the fact that the Lakers have a reasonable shot at falling in the lottery this year, with a sub .500 record which is UNHEARD OF in Laker Land?

If anything this is forcing Kobe to consider retirement even more when his contract is up. But, I just can't handle this crap anymore. Kobe isn't and hasn't been the best player in the NBA since his arrival in the NBA.

If Kobe says we are legit contenders, then we should take that as a big compliment. This guy is a 5 time champ so he knows what it takes. Stephen A Smith picked us to win the championship too. Does his opinion matter? They are well known public figures so we should be glad they are complimenting the clippers.

its not that kobe's opinion MATTERS or means much, its that he's the face of the franchise with an ego the size of los angeles. therefore, its just interesting to hear what he has to say (and then criticize it or applaud it...but mostly just criticize it)

Should we be happier with Kobe making fun of the Clippers and calling us a doormat team like decades past?

He's one of the best players to grace the game and the fact that hes a laker doesnt change my opinion of him as a player. His opinion does matter in the basketball world and the fact he says we are contenders is a massive compliment to negro and his clippers.

Because when Kobe talks,,the entire known universe listens. When Blake talks,,he gets accused of flopping. Even when he is just talking.

it's a huge improvement over last years comments of "it isn't a rivalry because they have never won a series against us" . Glad to hear something positive from his mouth

Kobe's mouth has more activity than the Lakers W column these days. Plus, the press will publish every stupid comment or excuse he makes.

Wow surprising thing to hear from Kobe especially after the things he has said over the years. I think he realizes he sounds bitter by not acknowledging we are a great team and I mean it should give the guys that much more confidence in my opinion. I heard most of the soundbites and Kobe did not say one bad thing... he summed up what we already know... that they suck and we are a great team.

Now depending how tonight goes who knows what he can say post game

This. He's constantly running his mouth these days on a variety of topics. I liked the quote I saw from him the other day when he said he's "playing the best ball he has in years." Yet, his team is struggling to stay .500. Shows where his priorities are (and, really, have always been).

Maybe he is trying to figure out a way to come onto our team and knows if he keeps up his hater crap it won't happen,,but if he sucks our $%^&@ we will accept him. Me personally,,never.

Kobrick's definitely setting the stage for him to cry for a trade to the Clippers. No thanks, Kobrick... you had your chance in '04 and blew it!
