The breakthrough doesn’t change everything, as warned by Bryant. ‘One championship doesn’t get it, you know what I’m saying?’ Bryant said. ‘So for me, when we won one, it was a little different because it was, like you know, Michael (Jordan) had six, Magic (Johnson) had five. So me and Shaq (O’Neal) both were like, man, we got to get some more. One ain’t going to cut it.’ Surely James has been thinking the same way. ‘Yeah, I mean, since the last time we were here I got two,’ said Bryant, extending the vowel the way Jordan extended his fingertips after making his last championship shot in Utah. He let the ‘two’ hang out there without rushing onto the next sentence. ‘Dirk got one. He (James) got one.’ Has Bryant reminded James of the championship score? ‘Not yet,’ he said. ‘I will. I will.’”

It goes without saying Lebron has more work to do.

Please don't start. People say that crap all of the time around here... and it never ends well. Ever.

Russell has 11.

Jordan has 6.

Magic has 5.

Kobe has 5.

Shaq has 4.

Bird has 3.

In the interest of a peaceful thread, let's leave it at that. For now.

I like the quote. Not that LeBron needs the motivation, but it's always good to have your "big brother" remind you that you haven't done sh** yet. lol

That's a dumb statement. Kobe wasn't just a guy at the end of the bench. He was the 2nd best player on the team. Remember, Shaquille didn't win before he played with Kobe.

People who say Kobe only has 2 as the "main guy" are just looking to for something to knock him. It makes no sense. Shaq dominated in Orlando and still didn't win a ring. Let's not forget he had penny. They didn't win.

Shaq came to la and continued to dominate. No one could guard him so why not feed him the ball consistently. When shaq was out or was in foul trouble kobe took over. He actually showed up in 4th quarters and showed he can do what shaq does, which was take over.

But haters gone hate. I'm waiting for haweye to come in here in hate. Lol

nope, but they are simply a factor that holds no extra weight over statistics, accolades, awards, and some other factors.

I don't think he's taking a stab at Lebron out of envy. Pretty sure Kobe's always defended Lebron throughout his tough situations. He's just reminding him to not lose that "fire" going into next season.

valid point but ever since the comment he made about "not bad for the 7th best player in the league" at the start of last year i think kobe has become angry over people disrespecting his game and with lebron getting coronated it might have just added to it

honestly, I think you are right. I really haven't seen Kobe ever go after LeBron, he has always seemed to have his back. And yeah, I think you are right on, he is simply saying, "So? Do it again if you are the best". I have zip issue with that.

07-10-2012, 04:44 PM
Kobe isnt better than everyone with less than 5 rings just because his TEAMS won them, and he shouldnt only get credit for 2 because he only has 2 finals mvps. You have to look at the context of every situation and go from there. This is why I think its ridiculous when people say x player needs x more rings to better than a different p;ayer. You have to take everything into account when judging players. Not just stats and not just rings.

Lebrons really got no rings because he had to team up with wade and bosh.

See how lame that sounds?

I'm sure Lebron can FLOP his way to another ring. D Wade has taught him well.
