Sorry but I couldn't disagree more. Calling it "Kobe -vs- Lebron" or "Kobe -vs- Howard" or "Kobe -vs- Shaq" is a common marketing tactic. You must not know about marketing. If anything, blame the fans for loving their superstars more than the team itself. I'm a Lebron fan, not a Cavs fan. I like Dwight Howard, but could care less if the Magic lose. That's the way it is in every sport. The Lakers will always be Kobe's Lakers for as long as he's wearing that uniform and I see nothing wrong with that because that's how the team gets Kobe fans, who are not Laker fans, to watch their games.

It is Kobe's Lakers. It Howard's Magic. It is Lebron's Cavs. It is Carmelo's Nuggets. Why do you only get upset when they mention Kobe's Lakers? What about the other superstars who have been given ownership of the team they play for? You're a Kobe and Laker hater and I understand that. But what bothers me is you hypocrisy. Get over it. When Kobe retires and the Lakers have a new superstar, it will be that superstar's lakers. It is how it is!

It's funny how they talk about "dirty play" because the Lakers always play like that,it's just that they are sneaky about it. And whenever they lose they have an excuse,"kobe wasnt feeling well"."they played dirty".
It's the fact that because their own fans support their excuses. The lakers are ball-hoggers and Kobe always wants to be the "STAR". They are not a team, I often hear of them being called."KOBE & COM" that's a TEAM??? I get that Kobe is a good player, however he's not the BEST. There are other good players, Shane Battier, Lebron James, Dwight Howard, Rondo etc. Please dont fancy KOBE. It's just sick. How come no-one ever said anything about how the "fans" were disrespectful to the Anthem when they came to the "ROCKETS" part, That's a shame they cant even respect that.

Your Nugget starters, along with the bench and coachers, will be resting THROUGH the finals watching the Lakers take on the Magic. It's been a tough series though. Your team looks a lot better than they did last year. I guess Billups is the anti-iverson.
