Too soon for Kobe hate?

slobberbone: Too soon for Kobe hate?


He was a (likely) rapist, so no.  It's never too soon for Kobe hate.

Grant Hill, at no point, should have been considered the next Michael Jordan.  Their games weren't even close to similar.  Grant was more Magic, and definitely more Dr. J.  Same with LeBron.  His game was always much more Magic than ballhog. Same with Penny.  Kobe was the only one on that list who had the requisite hatred for his teammates that Jordan had.  Harold was ballhoggy enough, but didn't have the work ethic.  And you have to play some defense to stay on the court.

Also, Vince was always more Nique than Jordan.

This list is as much a commentary on how stupid people are when making comparisons than it is anything else.

Ringer ran out of live sports / new TV roughly at the same time their staff started getting weird looks for hanging out with college girls. This has been a very, very hard year on them.

Vince Carter is no Jordan but he did elevate in-game dunking to the next level. First there was Dr J followed by Jordan/Wilkins, Shawn Kemp and then Carter
