Yes, I am here to explain why Kobe Bryant is overrated. By the end of this, you just might be convinced. To explain this, I will have to use a era based explanation.
The Shaq Years With Shaq on the team, The Lakers enjoyed much success. In all, it totaled up to three championships. They dominated the league from 2000-2002 and at this point, Kobe was on the rise with his sidekick helping as well.
The Loner Years Then one day, Shaq was traded to the Miami Heat in a deal that would pay off later on. But for right now, the Lakers were in trouble. Kobe Bryant could not win a championship by himself(Gasp.) He tried to do it all on his own, but failed. He was so angry that he demanded a trade unless the Lakers could get another big name player because he can't win by himself(will get to this later.)
Then one day in the 2008 season when the Celtics were already aquainted with their team......
The Lakers were part of the best trade (for them) in Lakers history. Basically, the Lakers got Pau Gasol while the Grizzlies got scrubs. This worked out and the Lakers seemed like a banner was already being put up. But the Celtics were waiting in a dark alley. They shut down Pau Gasol leaving only Kobe to score and he just couldn't do it. But then the next year, Kg gets hurt and the Celtics are knocked out(the Lakers breathed a sigh of relief) and they faced the Magic. With Pau Gasol actually performing, the Lakers won. And this year, again they faced the Celtics and it seemed like the Celtics were going to win, but then Kendrick Perkins gets injured and the Lakers dominate the offensive boards and noone can cover Pau Gasol, so the Lakers win.
So, um, what's your point? My point is that if LeBron is trashed for not winning a championship and is called overrated, then the same be true for Kobe. Yes, I am saying that Kobe Bryant,yes the Kobe Bryant is OVERRATED(clap,clap,clap,clap,clap)
EVERYONE, I AM NOT SAYING HE IS BAD. I AM SAYING THAT LEBRON GETS TRASHED FOR NOT WINNING, BUT HE HAS NO SUPPORTING CAST. WHEN KOBE HAD NONE, HE DIDN'T WIN EITHER. SO THEREFORE THEY ARE EQUAL. KOBE IS NOT GREATER!!!!!!!
