Again anything he says doesn't matter. You all are confusing talent with personality. Great people are usually not nice people. If Kobe had been playing SG instead of Cat and he didn't act an ass we would have gone to the Finals .Maybe won. He would have been great no matter who was the coach or who he played with. If he and Shaq didn't act like spoiled children they could have had a monster dynasty.

Ali was a jackass of the first order but he is still (wrongly) considered The Greatest. Ali called Frazier a gorilla. MJ is a jackass but he kept his mouth shut. Who cares what Kobe said about management? Does that make him less of a player. Anybody who says that they wouldn't want him on their team if there isn't another MVP player is crazy. MJ had Jackson as coach. The Celtics had Auerbach. Did that make Mr. Russell or MJ average players? Magic and Kareem had Riley. Would they have been average without him. Malone is an a***** of the first order. He refused to play with Magic but wouldn't you want him on your squad if you didn't have BG? He refused to see his own son because he was afraid the son wanted some money. All the guy wanted to do is meet his father. Dr J refused to acknowledge his own daughter in a basketball camp. This is way worse that saying your management sucks. Kobrick? Most people who know basketball (I'm not saying you don't) consider him in the top 10.

MJ, Wilt, Oscar, Russell, Magic These are generally considered the top five in no particular order then fill in the blanks for the next five. He's in the top ten. I don't care if he dropped drawers and pinched a loaf on the Clippers' floor I would still applaud his talent. Give the devil his due.

Remember when we had Baron or during the days of Keith Kloss we sucked stump water as the Lakers do now. What's the problem?

Hold up, who's on the high horse here? Fans sticking up for their team or Kobe making a underhanded joke at the expense of someone else to feel better about himself? Even at his lowest, he deflects his own shortcomings onto others to stay on that high horse.

By your rationale, anything said in a joking manner that is factually true should not make anyone feel insulted. That's exactly what you're saying here. Sorry, that's absurd.

Oh, and Kobe was an amazing player. Now he's just a player breaking down on what people would consider casual basketball movements.

Yeah... once upon a time, kobe was a great player and the Clippers sucked.

And once upon a time kobe faced criminal charges for sexual assault and had to buy his own wife and children back for a $4,000,000 piece of jewelry.

See, snake-boy? ...we've all got cliche lines we can use, so don't quit your day job. Oh... my bad... he already did quit his day job when he realized that his team still sucks with him in the lineup, so he pretends he's still injured and blames everybody else. They call that "plausible deniability'.

The thing about snakes is... they have really big f*cking mouths, but not much in the way of brains.

I was done for the night but is Durant so tall that there's no oxygen up there and he's brain dead? Kobe Bryant the GOAT? That's like saying Sarah Palin is the GOAT or is that goat? I think Glen Rice might agree. Not that she's a farm animal but that she's GREAT. She was supposed to have been a dirty girl.

But back to the subject at hand. Kevin have you been huffing glue?

Godawful- Over the hill- Aging- Turd

Yes he's the GOAT

I can't speak for all but I think the problem,in my mind,is we are tired of being the whipping boys of the league , we are a top tier team now and not the Clippers of 5 years ago, and we still get picked on by the media, we fans and team alike. Kobe could have used the Kings or the Bucks or a myriad of other teams but he choose us to use in his jabs and really, how many years do we have to keep hearing this crap. We would win the Finals 3 times in a row and I'll bet we still get pounded on.

I actually think this thread would have existed no matter who made the statement though,Kobe, ZBO, doesn't matter. Clipper Nation is just tired of the jokes at our expense. All we ask is to give us our due for once.

The point is that the truth is its own defense. Like it or not he's right. Because of DTS we sucked but that was yesterday. We can erase that all by winning. We are now getting respect

BUT

This team made some of the most boneheaded moves imaginable, Olawakandi and that Russian dude, Sterling dumped good players to keep salary low thereby making HUGE profits. He didn't give a rat's rump about winning. We were according to many the worst franchise in professional sports. We stuck in there. Finally DTS spent the bucks and we were on our way to the WCF's but Sam boneheadedly took over 8 seconds to get to front court and turned it over. Then a boneheaded move. Ewing a nobody guarding Bell. Many say Bell pushed off. The next year we were a dark horse for the WCF's but the locker room became so toxic that we didn't even make the PO's We hung in there. DTS forks out the $$$ to build a super team but our franchise player bolts (Thank goodness). We hung in there. We keep Baron but he's a cancer.

Loss after loss disappointing after disappointment but we hung in there

A disappointment much of his own making and he folds. No he doesn't know what it's like to be a Clipper fan because we hang in there. Doesn't bother me a bit

First,do you ever ponder what we would look like had EB and Corey stayed,I assume we would have sucked enough to get BG32 but maybe not enough to get CP3. It would be so different. Wonder who our PG would have been because Boom Dizzle would have cheeseburgered himself out of a job by now,although he did seem to perk up a bit when BG32 played that first year.

I remember all the time, every year we get voted as one of the worst sports franchises (ESPN would lump all sports franchises together and we were always on the bottom),but also many polls would say Clipper Nation was one of the most loyal fanbases in the US of A because we stuck with our horrific owner and his boneheaded decisions.

I've been a Clipper Fan since 1992 and a HARD CORE CLIPPER FAN since 2005 when The Lakers traded away Shaq and not Kobe. It was another reason why I think Kobe was such a punk. Dude, just wait until Shaq gets older and then it will be your team. To force the hand there when you have a championship team and more chance at rings, was ridiculous. I was SO PISSED when the Pau Gasol trade went down and gave Kobe a chance at more championships and to his credit, he won two more. No doubt, Kobe is one of the top 10 best players to ever play and possibly Top 5. But as the years go by and his character comes out... we will see his true colors. And as his skills diminish and he no longer wins... and the Lakers stay irrelevant, we will see the true colors of Laker fans... some who are decent, but others who have been some of the most arrogant fans in the history of sports.

ONE Bad season and look at how they're acting this year. They are so entitled.

This is why I don't just wish for The Clippers to win a championship but for the Lakers to toil in misery for 5 years. They really need to experience it for at least 5 years to get a taste.

To have one bad year and say "now we know what its like to be Clipper fans" is an insult and slap to our face. KOBE, STFU. We'll see you next year when the Lakers will won't have an excuse. And with Kobe + Nash + Lottery pick + free agent, they will be the 9th seed for the next two years.

Here's the thing though... and we all know it. The only way to really win, is to win it all. And with Blake's dramatic improvement this year, and his work ethic....

This is the most excited I have EVER been as a Clipper Fan, as a basketball fan.... I think we all are.

Kaman, Brand, Corey, Cat Sam. We were touted to have one to the best front courts in the league. Not nearley as good as now but not bad and DTS would have forked out the $$$. Magette was going to take a pay cut. Corey was~ 20/5 and Brand was 20/10, Cat was ~15 ppg Sam was a cold blodded closer.

Also if good players wanted to play with Kobe and he signed for minimum remember he got $24 mill in endorsements and the lottery draft being a lottery team would be good for them it wouldn't be so bad for so long. Like it or not the LAL name does draw players. With minimal cap and no good players an aging star no draft picke and Kobebeing a worse jackass that ever it will b e2016-17 till they begin to rebuild unless Kobe retires.
