Kobe Bryant Wins 4th ChampionshipMany have questioned Kobe Bryant’s legacy as one of the greatest basketball players of all-time recently due to him moving past Shaquille O’Neal and into fifth place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

When new head coach Mike Brown of the Los Angeles Lakers was asked about Kobe’s legacy he had some interesting comments.

“When you look at championship rings, the guys who have multiple rings are the ones who should be mentioned when you’re talking about people’s legacies. They should be mentioned first because there are a lot of great players out there that I believe can put up great numbers and do great things, especially on a team when you don’t win, it’s a different type of pressure you go through.”

“When you have five of them and have the possibility of getting more, or six or seven or eight, it’s like, ‘Whoa.’ That right there separates you or puts you in a different category. If you’re talking about pure talent alone, yeah, there are other guys out there who have a high talent level. But are they to the level of Kobe’s? In different aspects of the game.”

“You talk about who’s a more talented passer between LeBron and Kobe, well, LeBron is. Who’s a more talented mid-range scorer, well, Kobe is. Who’s a better attacker, Dwyane Wade is. So they all do different things different than each other, but at the end of the day, when it comes to combining talent and skill with the most important thing, which is winning, I don’t know how you don’t give him the edge.”

For a new head coach struggling to keep the Lakers afloat and hoping to avoid a Laker-Nation fallout this was not the answer anyone was looking for.

There is no reason Mike Brown shouldn’t have given Kobe the nod and stated that he is by far the best player he has ever seen no matter the aspect of the game.

Not only would this improve his rating with the fans it would also be the truth.

Right now Lakers’ fans don’t want to hear the bullshit.
