Sorry I don't really know how to use quotes, but the author basically says that Kobe isn't top 10 in the world anymore, because his team doesn't have a winning record and then states that Dirk, Lebron, Dwayne Wade, TMac, Steve Nash, and Jermaine O' Neal are all better than Kobe. I guess he forgot last year when TMac's team was 21-61 and Lebron's was 35-42? He also says that Ricky Davis could be second in scoring if he got to handle the ball and shoot as much as Kobe does. This guy must really hate Kobe.

Behind Amare and Steve Nash???

LMFAO

That article is pure ****.

Safe to say that wouldn't happen with any other player considered one of the 10 best in the world.
the dumb ****er just named Tmac as one of hte top 10 players, and Amare and the Suns sure weren't at the top of the standings last season.

That is hands downt he worst article I've ever read.

Hey now, you should have seen some of the stuff coming out earlier in the years from those guys; LeBron was hailed as the MVP and DPOY, Wade was the 2nd coming of Jordan, and KG was a top 10 player who can't win because of his talent. The press has always been fickle.

Well Dan LeBatard does write for the Miami Herald, what do you expect him to say? Dan's also Ricky Williams' personal ***** too...

Exactly. The press is extremely fickle and will be riding the jock of the next young player to achieve success. They'll prematurely put him on a pedestal and then back off a year or two later when he's struggling. Watch how they treat Lebron if he misses the playoffs next year. He was considered the next Magic a year ago and he'll be the next Marbury if his team misses the playoffs again next season. Right now, Kobe's team is struggling so they're going to jump all over him, even though his team has been in the Finals four out of the last five seasons. It's all good, though. This hatred of Kobe makes me like him even more.

Wow...that's one of the worst articles I've read in recent memory...the Kobe hating will never end with these guys. I know it'd never happen, but imagine if Shaq was the one that drove Kobe out and somehow the Lakers still had this record...I bet the blame would go on Kobe for letting Shaq get to him, and Shaq would still be the #1 player ever, blah blah blah.

Kobe haters amuse me.

He's absolutely wrong, he ranked Kobe between the top 11-20. He should have ranked Kobe between the top 20-30. He's a star of the team but cant take his team to the playoffs. Then look at the Clippers, no superstar but have a better record than the Lakers.

As Ron Burgundy once said- with modification-

" I'm smart and I discovered the wheel and built the Eiffel Tower out of metal and brawn. You're just an idiot with a small brain. With a brain a third the size of us. It's science."


And to answer your ignorant ideas, using you logic Garnett is in the 20-30 range because the Grizzlies have no stars but they have a better record.

Hmmm... could this be a well-known, previously banned, Kobe-hating poster?
