    Damn, the REAPER is back and punishing the hell out of Kyrie!!
    Very proud of myself for that one!!

    And those of you that say it is still early…you are correct, he can get to negative double digits!!

    The only reason I care about any of these people is my DK score.

    Couldn’t be a more truer statement.

    Kyrie Irving is so annoying

    Hoping my fox-trae trans crush

  • monarch

    It’s not Kyrie holding Levert back. They haven’t even shared the floor and Levert is doing nothing. Probably because some dude with an eye patch is going wild

  • beastdog325

    Kyrie…Bum number 2

  • jeffgo33

    Welp, it’s a close game again. Let’s see if Kryie makes us all proud

    I had to google Mamba mentality because it’s become such a buzzword, and Kobe described it as “all about focusing on the process and trusting in the hard work when it matters most.” I think people use that term to describe killer instincts or rising to the occasion in clutch situation..

    Bryant hit a lot of iconic buzzer beater but he also missed a ton in those situations. You don’t see too many highlights of Bryant being forced to lob the ball to someone like Luke Walton because smarter teams covered him well in the closing seconds. Derek Fisher was forced to take that 0.4 second shot.

    Kobe benefited a ton from playing with Shaq and the team fed him the ball in most of his prime. The offense ran around him and he reportedly clashed with Phil Jackson when he drew plays. Kobe was more of James Harden in his day, prolific scorer with some flair of the dramatics. But in his era Tim Duncan and Steve Nash was more of mamba mentality player.

    That 13% might cash you big though. Looking like Klay Thompson right now

    Ummmm I guess everyone who played against and with him is wrong.

    Nash robbed Kobe of an MVP award and has 0 rings. Kobe has more rings than Shaq. I’ll give you Duncan. 🤷🏾‍♂️

    I am a huge laker fan. IMO Kobe was always overrated. He is a top 10 player in the list of all time greats, but no where close to MJ. He benefited with the most dominant center ever by his side.

    I don’t think anyones comparing him to MJ. Kobe benefited from playing with Shaq. lebron benefited from playing with Wade, MJ benefited from playing with Scottie. What’s your point?

    I am a huge bulls fan. IMO Jordan was always overrated. He is a top 10 player in the list of all time greats, but no where close to KOBE. He benefited with the most dominant, all-around, amazing tool set wingman ever by his side.

    MJ overrated? First time ever I heard that. Had a top 5 wing in Pip, yes I agree. What else did he have??? I will wait…

    Yeah two ships, after requesting a trade and getting Pau gifted from Memphis. Those lakers teams were stacked
