View Full Version : Should Kobe Play against Greece?



Hellcrooner
08-06-2008, 10:21 AM
Ok, everyone in Usa may want to avenge world cups defeat against greece i guess, and Kobe is a big part of it.

But wich is more important, to win it all even if it is with one defeat or to try to go undefeated ?.

IF waht you want is a clean sheet you will have to risk kobe against Greece, if you just want the gold you better sit him.

Im taking in consideration that this game is just a 1st round, group stage game, im aware that you could make the same argument for the match against argentina , but since that onw will be a knockout game you cant go slowing down,


Why im telling he should not play against Greece, well as a Laker Fan i wouldnt like him to miss half the next season because some Greek Thug intentionaly kicked his sore Pinkie and injured him Badly.

Greeks play hard, and Greeks Play Dirty, they have always done so , so you can BET that if Kobe is on the pitch they will constantly be trying to take advantage of his injury, so he could break and dont be able to compete the rest of the olympcis, so Is it worth to gamble on it?.


Better sit him against greece.

theres NO WAY that kobe or team usa backs down from greece... NO WAY at all. Guess what... Bruce Bowen is dirty too...Kobe doesnt sit against him. If Greece takes a cheap shot they better be scared b/c Melo will hit their smallest player and then run... :laugh2::laugh2::laugh2:

So, you sit a player becasue you are afraid he will get hurt? If that was the case Kobe wouldnt have come to the Olympics at all.. Play him.

this guy has a point.

but if they wanna fight, they better be ready to get smashed by D12. he probly could take their whole team by himself.

USA doesnt back down to anyone and if they r as dirty as u say, maybe we can give Ron Artest a call

08-06-2008, 11:19 AM
yea i think its ridiculas to sit kobe cause your afraid he's gonna get injured... what about dwade? he's coming off an injury and he plays in the paint quite alot with his cuts to the basket... if greece is as dirty as you say he's more susceptible to injury... lebron is the same... just coming off an injury and he plays physical... every player on the US team means as much to their respective clubs as kobe does to the lakers... so if your afraid kobe will get hurt and he should sit... then sit everyone... don't even play...

Not Dirty?

I still remeber Panathinaikos winning the Euroleague ny one point against barcelona by one point.

it was something like this.

20 seconds left , Barcelona has the ball, 5000 greeks start boing and pressing the Refereee ( after a whole match of throwing things at the referees)

Montero with the ball near the Side, Panathinaikos coach Bozar Malkovich goes into the Pitch and Takles Montero, Referees look the other way, Monetro is still able to pass the ball to another player, he gets a slap in the face, the Referee looks the other way, he is able to pass the ball, theres 3 seconds left, baceolona player is able to shoot the ball, its there is falling down into the basket, then a panathinaikos player pushes the ball from the downside puttin his hands INSIDE the basket.

Te referee does not award the Basket, Panathinaikos win.


This is just ONE of a thousend times the dirty game of greeks is not pusnished by fiba referees, ask any Israley , tuurkish, spanish ot italian team fan.

he didnt say anything about greeks as a whole. hellcrooner is probably one of the more knowledgable PSD users when it comes to the international scene. unless you play for the greek national team I don't see a reason for you to be offended.

08-06-2008, 02:38 PM
You are ridiculous man, why would you bench one of the best defenders. what are you smoking? Kobe is a tough player, even if he gets hit in the pinkie, he is not going to stop playing for the gold. He is serious representing his country. And all those who say different are stupid. I here writers and commentators saying its only for show, its not important to them. Well I say to them how what low-lifes they are because the only person who would think something like that is someone whose character represents that... Listen to yourself, you dont even make sense

08-06-2008, 02:40 PM
you forget that it's kobe you're talking about.

if you bench him for greece he will explode and go ******* on you... EVEN if you tell him it's to protect him!

Also, his pinky should be alright... unlike some other NBA players, Kobe is a man.

greece playing dirty????come to your senses body!!!!!!!!greece is all about defense!!!!!!!!if u call defense in usa as dirty play thats fine!!!!!!!!!!but we have won u because we had played defense.and thats why i believe that we can beat u again!!!!!!!!!!!!because we are better than we were 2 years ago(and u are more improved)but i suppose u dont know anything about european basketball and anything about defense.i admit it ur team has 13 superstars.but basketball is about teamwork and greece play is defense and teamwork!!!!!!!!!so.........u must edit ur post about the dirty play!!!!!!that sooooo imature!!!!!

I know English isn't your first language, but you beat other teams you didn't won them.

And how is it immature to say that the US team will beat Greece. The US is the superior team. I know many people think that they will be cocky and overlook people, but coach K won't let it happen and Kobe won't let it happen.

BTW the use of 15 !s to end a sentence is pretty immature.

How many times do yo watch in tv any game of euroleague or Uleb Cup?


Believe i watch every season spanish teams Like Madrid, estudiantes, Jouventut, Barcelona, Unicaja Malaga or Tau Vitoria face greeks like Olympiakos, Panathinaikos, Paniliakos, Paok , Aris etc.

I usuallly get to ssee 15 or 16 of such games a hyear and believe me, going to play to greece is like going to hell.

You are lucky if you just get a little punch in the teeth.

usually i doubt some things hellcrooner has to say.
but i very much inderstand his point this time.

the opening round is really not going to matter all that much.
US will easily advance past it.
basically what he is saying is they could sit kobe in a game that wont really matter, to keep him healthy.

i dont think there is any way he sits though.
they want to go undefeated, and win the gold.
also kobes injury isnt that big of a problem IMO. he isnt the only guy w/ injury problems.

When have we ever injured any player in the history of world competitions to the point of him missing half the season? The answer is NEVER you propagandistic liar. We did however have one of our main guys miss a whole season a couple of years ago when an NBA player (Varejao) elbowed Zisis in the face breaking his facial bone. How is that for turning and twisting things in your favor? You're just mad cause our team play hard nossed defense and give everyone a hard time the past 4-5 years?

What is less than +10? So again explain to me how people saying that the Us will win, but you saying the game will be close is different?

Oh and Greece just lost to Spain by 15, so...

Yes, it is a certainty. The US is going to win the gold medal, but that wasn't even the point that I was making. You said people saying that the US is going to win are immature. Do you care to explain yourself? How is it immature to say that the most talented team(by far) is going to win?

a poster said that you will win us by far...i said that we wont win you but we also wont lose for more than 10 or 15 points.ok?

How can you honestly make that claim after losing by 15 to Spain? I hope Greece somehow gets out of their group just so the US can embarass them.

Hahahaha, how am I being racist?

I just want to US to beat Greece just so I prove you wrong. I didn't make any disparaging remarks about Greece. You are just stubborn. Tell me how Greece is good when they just lost to Spain by 15? They have no shot against the US, did you see the China vs US game?

Well I'm glad that you can admit that, but honestly I think they would win by more than 20. Hopefully they make it out of their pool.

i dont know.more than 20 points?we are supposed to be a defense first team

LAcowBOMBER

A defense first team means that they will score less. You can be defensively oriented, but its not gonna matter against the likes of the US team. Again they lost to Spain by 15 and the US is clearly better than Spain.

Oh and how was I being a racist?

If Greece hopes to win, they need kobe playing.

USA Starters Stats for both Olympic games:

Minutes fg/fga 3ptfg's rbds Assists To's BS Scoring

Wade 36 13/15 2/3 5 2 2 1 19

Lebron 44 13/19 1/3 8 8 1 4 15

Howard 35 11/16 - 5 1 2 2 13.5

Bryant 45 10/27 1/15 6 4 4 0 10.5

Kidd (not taken a shot it 2 games)


Seems to me Greece would want kobe on the floor shooting 37% and just
1/15 from 3pt. range(3' closer than NBA 3pt) while leading team in turnovers.

Ok, everyone in Usa may want to avenge world cups defeat against greece i guess, and Kobe is a big part of it.

But wich is more important, to win it all even if it is with one defeat or to try to go undefeated ?.

IF waht you want is a clean sheet you will have to risk kobe against Greece, if you just want the gold you better sit him.

Im taking in consideration that this game is just a 1st round, group stage game, im aware that you could make the same argument for the match against argentina , but since that onw will be a knockout game you cant go slowing down,


Why im telling he should not play against Greece, well as a Laker Fan i wouldnt like him to miss half the next season because some Greek Thug intentionaly kicked his sore Pinkie and injured him Badly.

Greeks play hard, and Greeks Play Dirty, they have always done so , so you can BET that if Kobe is on the pitch they will constantly be trying to take advantage of his injury, so he could break and dont be able to compete the rest of the olympcis, so Is it worth to gamble on it?.


Better sit him against greece.
You're Greek smear campaign is baseless and tasteless.

Kobe has had a not so good two games on the offensive end, I will give you that, but Kobe's defense on the best perimeter player on the opposing team sets the tempo for the whole team. Kobe is on this team to be a defensive stopper and leader.

And I guarantee he gets it going at some point in these Olympics.

I for one hope Greece gets really physical because I would love to see what this team does if Kobe, Lebron, Wade and Dwight were angry.

It's not really baseless. The Greeks play a very physical style of basketball that many people would classify as "dirty." I'm not saying its right, but its not a baseless claim.

Oh I see... so being tough and physical and playing good defense is playing dirty.

Tell that to the 08 Celtics.

Ok...Tell it to Lambeer's and Isiah's Pistons. They were physical, they were dirty, they were good.

I didn't say that I have a problem with Greece's play, I just said that their style of play is considered dirty by many. Dennis Rodman was a good player(and a headcase), but he was considered dirty by many. Same with Malone, and anyone else that you want to include.

Bottomline, when you play very physically you are gonna be labeled dirty, like it or not
