Neutral on the kobe situation --> NO, If you mean the situation kobe has put himself and the lakers in.LakerLunatic said:So we all know there are essentially 2 camps, the Kobe Haters (sheep) and the Kobe fans (gods) but this is just my opinion, and im obviously pretty bias. But honestly, is anyone out there just neutral on the Kobe situation? LET YOURSELVES BE KNOWN!
LakerLunatic said:So you respect and acknowledge that he is one the best players in the league, but do not respect who he is as a person?
This is pretty much how i feel. He's amongst only a few other players in the league right now who are as athletic, talented and skilled but i dont respect him very much as a person. i feel that he can be pretty selfish, take bad shots and when you hear players who have played with him talk about him you dont hear the nicest things or they avoid saying anything incriminating. So in conclusion kobe as a player is amazing but i cant idolize someone i dont respect.
I can agree with this, except I don't hate the Lakers.Pay Ton said:I'm kind of neutral on Kobe. I mean I like his game, but I hate his team and most of his fans. (Most, not all)
I guess that makes me neutral on everything involving Kobe. But it wouldn't actually make me neutral on Kobe the player himself, cause I like him.
How can you say he is "most likely" a horrible human being then go on to state that you have limited information?SeaNet said:I am a Kobe hater, but I acknowledge that Kobe is the most talented wing player in the NBA (until Lebron puts it together on D, that is). He possesses an unholy combination of speed, strength, coordination, touch, and will. However, I think he's an awful team player, and most likely a horrible human being (from the limitted information I have to go on). And being a team first player is the number one thing for me. I can't stand guys who put themselves before the team.
The 'I think' from earlier in the sentence is supposed to carry over to the 'most likely a horrible human being' part. Its just my opinion. I think he's most likely a horrible human being based on the information I have from what is available in the public domain. I do now however, know him personally, so you never know. I was trying to be judicious. Perhaps it didn't come through.Spriggan said:How can you say he is "most likely" a horrible human being then go on to state that you have limited information?
Don't worry. There are a LOT of players that were better at the same age than Jordan till Jordan turned 30... :biggrin:tone wone said:I Like to think that I am neutral..but im probally a little bias in favor of Kobe
I couldn't stand the Lakers and especially Kobe a couple years ago...I, like a lot of people, felt it was a disrect to my religion when people made the Jordan comparisons...u know "kobe is better than Jordan at age 23" Kobe is better than Jordan at 24" Kobe is better than Jordan at 25"( that was very, very, very annoying).....
