That second gif was more about Magic Johnson laughing, you have to remember that Johnson's really the only reason there is an NBA today. It was a dying/dead enterprise until Magic Johnson brought a new era of flashy play as a 6'9 point guard to the league. He earned a massive amount of accolades and had he not been forced to retire early, he probably would've won more than five rings. You have to remember guys like Jordan, Kobe and LeBron get heavy heavy favoring from the refs, guys like Malone, Barkley, Olajuwon, Johnson, Bird and now Carmelo, Durant, and Harden are reffed the same as regular players.

Michael Jordan is the best player ever because of his ability to drive, dunk, shoot, and play clutch. He wanted to be good at anything he put his mind to (not always b-ball, though).

LeBron is the most gifted player ever because of his natural talent and physical figure. He is an agile tank who can crush or slip by anyone he wants. Same thing with Magic and his ability to move the ball.

Kobe? There's nothing spectacular about Kobe. He's even scrawnier than MJ and can't be expected to drive to the net as often as LeBron does. To me, he is one of the greatest because he's one of the most determined athletes I've ever seen. He is like Ryan Kesler times ten. His desire to win turned him into the point-spamming, clutch-playing, championship-winning machine that he is now. I noticed it this year especially, when he basically took over d'Antoni's job as the coach and basically led his team into a playoff spot. His desire to win is so intense that he'll create friction against anyone who doesn't show the same level of tenacity (Shaq, Howard, Mike Brown, etc).

Long story short? MJ was a better team player than Kobe (same for Magic). Kobe's selfishness though, is because of his level of determination. That's something special. I've always imagined what type of monster LeBron could've been if he had the same mentality as a guy like Kobe.

Kobe will come back from this. There's no way he would end his career for this.

You can tell by his tweets the Mamba is looking forward to getting back and proving people wrong. Don't think I have ever seen an athlete as dedicated and hard working at Kobe. Just the stories you hear about how much of his life he's committed to ball is insane.

Sad day for the NBA to not have him in the lineup but the Black Mamba will be back and be just as good as he is now. (Don't actually think it's possible for him to get better.. this is coming from a LBJ fan).

And for anyone remotely interested in professional sports, Kobe Bryant is one of the best twitter accounts out there.

i dont follow kobe... or anyone, really... i don't even watch basketball much but i heard when he tore his achilles, he continued the game and people were calling out for guys spraining their ankles and having to be carried off on stretchers and ****

i won't deny kobe is one tough SOB. the guy's been beaten up in the playoffs thoughout the years. comes with being one of the most prolific guys in basketball history

He shot two free throws, and he's also another guy that left a game with a hurt ankle earlier this season. Don't know who he's trying to "prove wrong", everyone knows what he's capable of and what his game will be like. I'd go as far as to say that if he isn't as good when he comes back, that'd be a huge disappointment.

exactly. i don't follow basketball. i don't really respect the sport, and when i did, michael jordan still played, but i was only in grade 3 at the time, and that was near the twilight of his career-- but even someone who doesn't care about the sport knows who kobe bryant is. the guy's a legend. the times i did watch though, he's taken poundings cause he was always the guy carrying the lakers, so naturally you go after the biggest threat and he just keeps coming back.

normally people i talk to call kobe a "ball hog" and all that **** but, like, maybe get someone who can score and not rely on kobe to carry the team for god knows how many years. i even know the deal with shaq saying if it weren't for him, kobe and the lakers wouldn't have won all those titles, but after shaq left, kobe was still, the guy. i'm just saying, as a guy who's viewed from what i know. all i'm saying that the guy is tough. i'll still view as MJ as the greatest of all time of that sport cause i grew up idolizing jordan at one point

he's out to prove everyone, because people view basketball as a real "ballet" sport where, if you get touched, you fall down like you've been shot, take some free throws and delay the game. kobe takes his bumps, gets up and plays. the guy cares

Sad that Kobe was out but I'm so glad that Laker fans are done now, I can't stand their fanbase.
