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!!!!!!!

Why Kobe Bryant is OVERRATED!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you win 60 plus games 2 years in a row and are the hands down favorite to win the championship. And you don't even make it to the NBA finals either year. Then you and your team is overrated. It's funny how Jamison was the missing piece when they traded for him, but now he a bum. Gasol was a bum at Memphis for all but one year. He wasn't even considered in the top 10 but now he is with Jordan 2.0/ Kobe he is now considered the most skilled big man. It's easy to be awesome when your team mate gets triple teamed. And for all the people who say Kobe got his 3 rings because of Shaq, check the stats. Kobe owned San An every time they played in playoffs.

 Did West play against the NY Yankees or the Montreal Canadians?

The Yankees nor the Canadians have ever won 8 titles in a row. Its the most incredible feat in team sports.

The Lakers are Snoop Dogg, the Celtics are Neil Sedaka.

The Lakers are an I-phone, the Celtics are a pay phone.

The Lakers are Beyonce, the Celtics are Michelle Obama.

The Lakers have flash, the Celtics have gas.

The Lakers party until 4AM,  the Celtics pass out before midnight from too much cheap beer.

The Lakers like hip-hop, the Celtics like hop-scotch.

The Lakers have Jack, the Celtics had Kennedy.

The Lakers played in a Roman "Forum", the Celtics played in the Rose "Garden".

The Lakers wear Purple and Gold to symbolize NBA royalty, the Cetics wear green to symbolize their envy.

I agree Kobe is overrated, meaning I don't think he's Jordan. I think he and Jordan  gained alot by playing for the greatest coach I've ever seen in Sports (Phil Jackson). Kobe only won 1 MVP. And he has never shot over 50 percent in a season while Jordan did it 7 times. Don't get me wrong I think Kobe is a All time great but someone should write a post "Phil Jackson is underrated". Also before you guys call him the greatest Laker over Jerry West remember  West ( like many great players from the 60's) had to go up the greatest dynasty in the history of sports, the Boston Celtics.

Kobe is one of the greatest players of his era plain and simple why? Because he plays in the west look at the comparison in the west we had a team that had a winning record and was in the lottery the east well you had teams with a losing record in the playoffs. As for saying hes overated well i say this I award you no points and may God have mercy on your soul!

Another uneducated, ignorant, Celtic fan.  You are an idiot.  I can't even get into explaining why, I may end up throwing up while I am doing it.  Let me just leave you with this. 

Does Kobe have to dance before every game to get attention drawn to him?  NO!  He just goes out and scores.  Does Kobe have to stand at the scorers table and throw chalk into the air like a freakin idiot, just so that he can draw attention to himself?  NO!!  He goes out and plays defence and shuts down the other teams best player.  And still gets his 25 pts, 5 boards, and 5 assists, 2 steals.  Lebron is a great ball player but he needs to show boat, Kobe just does his job.  And in the end the show boater will never win a title, but the serious Kobe that let's his play draw attention to him, will continue to win, and win, and win.......  

So ignorant Celtic cry baby.  Shut your hole, and just admit it.  YOUR NOT THAT BRIGHT!!!  And the more you open your mouth, the more it just proves, that you are an idiot..........
