    Kobe envies Spurs' stability

    http://prosportsdaily.com/Headlines/...ticleId=329633


    Read this and rolled my eyes. Given that Kobe is largely the reason for the 'up-and-down' stuff in LAL, I find it odd that he is jealous of Tim Duncan's situation.

    Anybody who has watched Duncan play knows that dude could have been averaging 30/15 a game, but that he played into the team and put team first. Even Kobephiles have to concede that he is a glory hound who wants to play hero-ball all the time. Duncan has sacrificed personal stats since he got into the league to keep the Spurs in a winning situation.

    Thoughts
    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    "he's got the same competitive fire as I do. It's been a joy to compete against him for all these years."

    He created his own luck with his professional mentality, work ethic, and dedication.

    This coming from a guy who wouldn't take a pay cut. This coming from a guy who ran both Shaq and Dwight Howard out of town.

    Watch and Learn Kobe...

    I agree somewhat, but still he was lucky. Getting drafted by the spurs, Robinson came back, getting pop, great team management...

    He won a championship '99 alongside top 10 player during that time and top 20 player in history. The Admiral anchored Spurs' defense in '99. Duncan had the best back court in the NBA in 05-07. Duncan also had the MOST STACKED team in the league '13 season and '14 season. Don't bring up '03 season. They beat bunch of weak teams. Shaq -Kobe were fueding. Shaq was also playing hurt

    There's not a player in history who is more lucky .

    Lol this.

    You helped drive Shaq out of there. Then you decided you wanted $24 mil and screw the Lakers' cap situation.

    Duncan is lucky but Kobe could've had continuity if it wasn't for his ego.

    Kobe taking less money means the Lakers would have had the same continuity that Duncan and Pop have spent two decade building? Chandler Parsons and Eric Bledsoe would have been nice additions but the Lakers wouldn't have gotten out of the second round, or been on the same planet as the Spurs in terms of continuity and consistency.

    Shaq demanded 30 million dollars a year as a 32 year (with 2004 salary cap, when the cap was 43.87M per team) and called out Buss during games, he made his own bed.

    Thank you for putting this into perspective. I don't understand why certain posters can't grasp this concept

    Yes I'm sure he created his own luck by being drafted into a championship caliber team straight out of college and to an organization that has had the best front office for almost 2 decades. Let's be real here, Kobe was fortunate to end up with the Lakers but Duncan was also fortunate to be drafted by the Spurs.

    There's not one person who can say how Duncan's career would've turned out if he was drafted by the Timberwolves. I'd guarantee you he wouldn't have a champsionship if that ever happened.
