How could you pass up having the best basketball player in the world playing along side LeBron James?

Next Shaquille O'Neal will want to come back.

foo monkey: How could you pass up having the best basketball player in the world playing along side LeBron James?


My favorite Kobe Bryant story is that direct-to-television movie where the stars of Gilligan's Island recruit a team of superstars in order to defeat a mad scientist's basketball-playing robots.

You can tell there was some serious disagreement to the creative direction of the movie, there are several instances where Bob Denver rolls his eyes as he calls Kobe the best player in the National Basketball Association, there's even a sequence where Denver just storms off the set and screams that Kobe is "uncoachable even in real-life".

But the game remains pretty close up until the fourth quarter, when Kobe just starts taking all of these ridiculous shots, and you have to understand, these are not ordinary robots, these things can stretch their arms out and block shots 20 feet in the air, so it's critical that you move the ball around and cut to the basket.

Kobe obviously does not care though, he keeps clanking terrible shots, keeps screaming at his teammates, tells them to get in position for the rebound, but hell if they're going to box out a half-ton piece of metal.  The superstars lose the game and Gilligan realizes that the world is lost.

The robots proceed to crush, kill, and destroy every human on the island, and then the camera cuts to the mad scientist looking through a "binocuscope" (a binocular telescope) focused on New York City.  He now realizes that he has won and it is only a matter of time before civilization falls.

But to be fair, Kobe couldn't really do much more than he did, the man scored 62 points on 74 shots, why the hell were his teammates standing around looking for the ball?  And then everyone wonders why Kobe only won five championships.  It's a joke.

Yes. It would be hilarious watching him jack up 40 shots a game.

Isn't his knee ruined?

Also, why?

They made a remake of '12 Angry Men'?

I loved that the Lakers had Kobe on the team when they played the Pistons.  He should have won MVP.  Imagine if he wasn't a ballhog hell bent on not letting Shaq win yet another Finals MVP?  Lakers in 5 if that happened.  Shaq was completely unstoppable.

Sure. I want Kareem to suit up again too.

kdawg7736: Next Shaquille O'Neal will want to come back.


Shaq, Lebron and Kobe on the same team sounds like good times. Heck, MJ might even want in. I might actually watch that circus. The end result would be the same, though: Golden State will continue to pile up hardware.

Do you want LeBron never to have the ball?
 
2018-07-11 11:31:30 AM  
The Lakers should really sign Melo. I know the Rockets seem to want to saddle themselves with him, but the Lakers would be a better fit.

this the best work you've done in a while, Mike.

The ol' article headline rule, 101....   If the headline of an article poses a question, the answer is invariably 'no'.

Kareem is not walking through that door, fans. Magic Johnson is not walking through that door, and Kobe Bryant is not walking through that door. And if you expect them to walk through that door, they're going to be gray and old.

No. No. No.

A Fark Handle: No. No. No.


No? What do you mean a ball dominant, shot-happy guard wouldn't mesh with a ball dominant, efficiency-minded power forward?

Hey, I got an idea!  Let's bring back the nWo!  The marks loved that back in the day!

Kobe should sign with the Warriors for the league minimum for two years for rings #6&7 just so we can all enjoy watching MJ freaking the fark out and unretiring for a third time.
 
2018-07-11 08:26:39 PM  
Hell, I'm still waiting on Barkley and Malone to un-retire and join the Warriors so they can finally get their rings.
