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!!!!!!!

Nobody said you had to win titles all by yourself. Jordan needed a HOF'er in Pippen. Shaq had Hardaway in Orlando, Kobe in LA, Wade in Miami, and Nash and Amar'e in Phoenix, and LeBron in Cleveland and he won 3 with Kobe, and 1 with Wade. Magic Johnson had Kareem and Worthy. Bird had McHale and Parish. Garnett, Allen, and Pierce needed each other. Billups had Hamilton, Wallace, and Prince. Duncan had Parker, Ginobili, Bowen, and Robinson, Kobe has 2 titles without Shaq. Shaq has 1 title without Kobe. The only way that I think you can be overrated is if you don't do well with help.

Boston SMD. Jordan needed Pippen to win. Everybody needs a good team mate to win in this league. Lebron can't win because he doesn't have a good player beside him. Was Pau an elite player before he got traded to the Lakers? NO. He wasn't an All Star. Kobe made him an All Star! About Shaq winning Kobe 3 championships. Shaq was in his prime and Kobe was barely getting started. He was barely 23 years old. KOBE 5 Rings, Boston Big Three 1 ring, Lebron 0 ring. Thank you. PZ

In response to jeremiahw941. He couldn't be more wrong. For one, no one can win a championship by themselves

I never said that. I said that if LeBron is overrated because he can't win, then Kobe should be too.

I'm not one enter all the outragous internet debate. I just wanted to say as a Boston fan, I disagree.  There are hundreds of reasons I've come up with to hate Kobe, but the number one reason is he's that good.  The man can will shots in, shots that I couldn't even imagine going in.  Watch a buzzer beater real from this year.  I hate him because he is the most skilled offensive player of this generation and because he was one of the fiercest competetiors in the league.  There are a lot of players in the NBA that I would call overrated.  I was surprised to not see Kobe explode in Game 7.  But I grimmiced every time he touched the ball.  I hate Kobe because he's anything but overrated.

this moron says lebron has nobody? lmao! they got everybody but his momma to help so fuck yourself. Kobe had smush who is out of the league because he sucked so bad. and Kwame Brown worst draft pick of all times. Mo williams, jamison, varajao, shaq, parker, west, big z. What else do you want. Kobe got one guy and went straight to the finals GASOL. Lebron has plenty of help he just ran into a great team. Celtics destroyed the east. heat (wade) cavs (lebron) and last years east champs magic (howard)
