Kobe Bryant – Curtain Call

The Good

A funny joke I tell my friends:

Pick a spot where you think Kobe Bryant couldn’t shot from.

Kobe Bryant to me should be considered one of the best players to ever touch a basketball!I saw it all throughout my childhood.

Here is a quick look at all his accolades. He was a true scoring machine and he had the heart of a true warrior. His passion for the game was undeniable. When I grew up in the I witnessed Kobe Bryant dominate the league. I watched him grow up in the league as well from a arrogant young kid trying be like Michael Jordan to a great leader and teacher of the game. Either you loved him or hated him there is no way you can’t deny his greatness!

THE BAD:

First coming into the league Kobe Bryant emulated Michael Jordan in everything.

Proof, His game: Kobe first came into the league trying to embody Michael Jordan even down to his speaking voice. He was using all his moves , it was like watching the passing of the torch for the new era.

Check this out:

THE UGLY:

Kobe & Shaq break-up was the defining moment in Kobe’s career. The backlash he got for pushing Shaq out of LA. Made him the black eye of the NBA. He was considered a selfish, arrogant, watch yo mouth! There were a lot of incidents of Kobe not getting along with his teammates throughout the years.

 

THE TRUTH:

Hate ’em or Love ’em.

Kobe is one of the best players ever.  He was never afraid to take the big shot in crucial moments.

He played in 20 seasons and made the playoffs 15 times.

As Kobe Bryant evolve we starting witnessing  what a Michael Jordan baby would play like in today’s generation. Watching Kobe playing with his competitive fire turning his ego into a super alter ego. Also changing his jersey number from #8 to #24. Everything about his game had changed. Dominating the west alongside with the Spurs. Which was the team also competing for titles during that era. Kobe won MVP once due to NBA politics of not truly defying what the MVP awards actually means.

We watched Kobe grow up in the NBA and witness a great one.
