Tell me this , how come none of you call out Lebron for jocking Magic's style with such persistence?
I don't understand why you get so defensive. It is what it is, and like I said I don't fault Kobe for it.
Do you think it's just a coincidence that people say that Kobe pretty much copied Jordan's style? It's not a secret. Do you think it's just some big conspiracy by 100s of thousands of people since Kobe came into the league to say that Kobe copied Jordan hardcore?
Even Kobe himself said in around 2001 that he had to stop watching Jordan VHS tapes and have his own style. He said something to that effect, but not as bad as it sounds in this context.
You try to make it sound like it's just a common thing that every player does, that no one has their own style, and ignoring reality. Ignoring that Kobe has even copied his mannerism, which is natural when you study and try to emulate a person in such a hardcore way.
And no, I do not see Lebron as a carbon copy of Magic.
