Very similar to MJ when he got near the end of his career.

you wouldnt trade shumpert and amare for bryant? my question is, why the hell not?

lakers would never do that

Why would we trade for Kobe while having Kobe in a headband who is actually better than Kobe at this point in his career? Not to mention we go down a peg on defense & we lose a starter at the PF spot. You are buggggggggggging.

is this a serious post?

you think shumpert is kobe?

you know who's contract is worse than kobe's? it's amares

This derailed a bit to a chance to dig at Kobe (and why not...) but it was really on the money. It's good to see the media called out like this on how they wanted to see Melo fail last year with Lin

Best part of the Kobe interview The BigBoss posted is how Kobe respects Melo's work ethic. Kobe works hard and for him to respect Melo's work ethic gives me some confidence for this teams future success.

Kobe speaks the truth, but i've noticed since he gave Melo credit for being a tougher guy to guard than Lebron,people have spun into a Melo vs Lebron flame war in the GB.It's interesting to see Kobe praise Melo.It's almost as if he sees Melo coming out on top,and taking his place as that "guy" in the league.

I don't see anything wrong with what Kobe said. In fact I think he's 100% correct. He's sticking up for one of his only friends in the league. People will spin anything.

First of all... wtf is up with the hat, Melo??

And B... the reporter at the 35sec mark uses the word "ya'll" and it's never before sounded so forced and weird.

Kobe is right period....I mean come on..anyone forgot last season?

Melo came out strong and was averaging around 28 points or so on good shooting..Knicks started 6-4. Melo picked up some minor but lingering injuries and the Knicks started losing more games and as the losses increased the whole media was on his back about shooting the ball etc. Then when Linsanity happened everyone was sure that Melo was hurting the team (a notion I found as ridiculous as the current notion of Stat hurting the team). The last month of the season when we had a real coach again, showed the truth and shut the critics up. Melo carried this team through a brutal schedule , averaging something around 32points/8rebounds on 52% shooting or so, making the playoffs...something that looked like a longshot the moment D'Antoni resigned.

Whenever Melo has played well and scored the ball aggressively this team has been most successful. There is absolutely no denying or spinning this. This is Melo's team and he definitely has the ability to carry and deliver. He has proved it numerous times in the past and this season. As Melo goes the Knicks go.
