Damn go easy.


Also Kobetards don’t have any room to bring up Dirk. Dirk swept the reigning champs like it was nothing. Kobe is insanely overrated in every aspect. But most people know that by now.

Kobe beat more 50+ win teams in the post season than LeBron ever could and while Dirk owned them both, Kobe at least hasn't lost 6 times in the finals. Nothing is more overrated than a player who loses 6 times in the finals.

Kobe was only the best player on like 10 of those wins. No one cares that the Lakers beat 50 win teams before Kobe was even relevant in the NBA.

And yes, Kobe hasn't lost 6 times in the finals because he was only good enough to make 3 finals as the man.

LOL at LeBron on the stacked Heat formed through collusion losing to Dirk and a bunch of past their prime average players. How embarrassing.

The stacked Lakers, defending champs, got swept and Kobe played terribly as well.

I don't understand why you ignore this? 2011 was a bad year for Kobe and Bron.

Kobe is not capable of 3 peating twice like MJ. He never said he was. Why do you keep pretending that he is? Of course the worn down Lakers after 2 seasons of being champs are going to lose to the Mavs. That is completely different than a 2011 Miami heat super team losing to the Mavs on fresh legs due to a weak EC.

Sad but 100% spot on. It was really that simple - in 2007 no one expected Lebron to win - he was intimidated by the Spurs, had a shit cast and played poorly and lost. It was what, late into the 3rd quarter of 2007 game 1 and LBJ still hadn't made a field goal (was like 0/11 or something?)
2011 was the opposite - was expected to win, had a great cast, and still lost.



Also let's not forget Dirk actually went to the damn glass in that '11 finals and Terry couldn't MISS a damn three.

Many players are capable of three-peating if they are on great teams for a long time.

Derek Fisher 3-peated. Robert Horry has 7 rings.

Are you going to say Kobe wasn't capable of winning 7 rings like Robert Horry?

Got lebron23 so shook about Lebron not being in the 3 peat club that heís replying to my post under different alts. Surprised he made a new thread about it on his stronglurk account instead of using his Baller86 account.
