    :ha: that's awesome

    Kobe probably does have the best work ethic out of anybody other than Jordan though. Kobe and Jordan are both guys that are a lot less physically and naturally gifted than physical freaks like Lebron so they have to work that much harder than everybody else to improve their skills to be great. That's why Lebron is hands down the better athlete than Kobe, but Kobe is so much more skilled than anybody else in the league.

    Of the three, Kobe and Lebron really had to learn how to shoot. Jordan came in with a nice stroke, but Kobe and and Lebron were horrid based on my limited knowledge of their highschool careers. And they dramatically improved in a short time. Jordan definately improved his defense though. I see all three as hard workers. All three as naturally gifted too. Lebron is the torch holder and he hasn't won a thing. That tells you something right there.

    MY MVP would be Lebron.

    I'm a fan of creating shots, nice handles, jumpshots, CLUTCH shots, things other than dunks and layups.

    So he does nothing for me at this point. Maybe once he stops doing silly kid stuff like snapping imaginary pictures, and throwing powder in the air- I just might be able to respect/like the guy.

    So true.. That seems like all he does most of the time.

    Lerbron has hit a lot of clutch shots. he can do it all, block shots, shoot, dunk, pass, defence etc...

    How dare he have fun with his teammates before the game? The nerve! I'd like for my players to have some semblance of a personality instead of being robots out on the court.

    But I suppose Kobe never did any thing childish, only take part in breaking up a dynasty and throwing his young, budding center under the bus.

    Jordan even clapped and powdered his hands before games.

    but whats funny , i actually found the Cavs/Wizards game on tv tonight,and just so happens the Cavs are sucking. could be their first loss in 4 weeks. i think i jinxed them by watching.

    That post prompted me to look, last two losses were Houston and Boston. And they were nearly a month ago.
