Friday Fire: If the Los Angeles Lakers Win the Title, Where Does this Put Kobe Bryant Among the NBA Pantheon?Posted in Blogroll on June 5th, 2009 by Michael Tillery
Yeah this is just one game so don’t get crazy, but dude came out and put a 40 spot on the Magic. Amazingly, he’s never put up 40 in a NBA Finals game. The wins mean more to Kobe. He has at least six to get right? 4 rings mean nothing to him. Mere obstacle in the path to greatness. Usually the Lakers win more games when he shoots 20 shots or less, but throw that all out the window after last night.
He’s coming for you Mike.
Whose your NBA top ten? Kobe wins this and he enters the discussion of the greatest of all time. Somebody bad like Doc and Elgin have to step aside right? Would you take him over Magic and Bird right now?
He ain’t Mike, but he’s definitely Mike’s son. Oh yeah, squash all that LeBron James talk for a couple of years OK? Thank you.
