Exactly what i was tryin to say, becuz the mvp makes 1 field goal in 4th an 2 FREE throws he is clutch. Its amazing. And people that wana talk about Kobe, Lebron will b extremely lucky 1 day if he reaches kobe status. Open ur eyes dude ur talkin about 1 of all time greats with 5 rings opposed to lebron still searching for 1 ring.
When folks say Kobe status...what exactly is that? And what does that encompass?
In my opinion...his status is
1) 5 time NBA champ (team accomplishment)
2) 2 time finals MVP (individual accomplishment)
3) 1 Regular Season MVP (individual accomplishment)
4) 2 (or is it 1) scoring title (individual accomplishment)
5) All NBA 14 times (10 times 1st team all NBA)
6)All NBA defense 12 times (9 times on 1st team)....this is wierd...because last 2 seasons D Wade leads Kobe in rebounds...blocks and steals but popularity reasons folks keep putting Kobe on 1st team....wierd
7) 14 All Star appearances
8) 4 all star mvps
9) Slamm dunk champ in 1997
10) Scored 81 points in a game
11) Won a gold medal
12) sexual assault allegation and divorced (I know not relevant...just threw that in there )
1) Three time regular season MVP...finished 2nd in the voting twice
2) Came into the league as most hyped player ever--- and folks since his 1st from prep High school to Pro game debut....25 points...9 rebounds, 6 assists and 60 % shooting .."best prep to pro debut ever"....he has LIVED UP TO THE HYPE and has gotten better and remained steady every season while in the NBA
3) January 19th of rookie season...was youngest player ever to record a triple double in NBA....also same season scored 41 pts...youngest ever to do that too......ended up averaging 20 pts...5 rebounds...5 assists in rookie season only Oscar Robertson and Jordan did that in NBA history
4) Won Rookie of year
5) Youngest player to ever win All Star Game MVP....Won All Star MVP twice
6) Eight time all NBA (6 times on all NBA 1st team)
7) Four time all NBA 1st team.....was 2nd in voting last year and this year for defensive player of year....coaches gave him the most votes for all nba defensive team.....MEDIA gave award...GAVE award to Tyson Chandler of Knicks
8) Gold medal with team USA in 2007 FIBA and 2008 Olympics
9) I will not list all the performances where he is compared to Oscar Robertson...Wilt Chamberlain...etc..etc....but if you watch sportscenter or listen to sports radio...there are too many to list....more recent performances....Game 4 vs Indy pacers and playoff performances vs Boston were HISTORIC
10) Led Cavaliers in regular season in pts, rebs, assts, steals, and blocks...this has only been done twice in a regular season (Pippen and O Robertson)
This season led Heat in everything except blocks...was 2nd on team in blocks
11) Folks dont talk about this much...but he has already won more KIA player of week and month awards than any player in NBA history....(yes more than Kobe)....in fairness to Jordan during his time it was only player of the month....and whoever won this won it for for NBA.....during kobe's era they started giving it to east and west player or week and month....but the point is....LBJ has more than kobe and it is not even close.
12) LBJ most controversial moment....he went on TV and announced he would take his talents to South Beach and gave millions of dollars to charity by doing "The Decision" AND...at a Miami Heat PEP RALLEY.....a pep ralley....tell his fans we are going to get you multiple championships......little did he know...that you have to watch what you say at a pep ralley with your fans.
