A Tough Article to Write

Listen, I hate the Lakers just as much as anyone, but this was an article that deserves to be written. Kobe Bryant, you know, that guy with 5 championship rings, has passed Shaq, you know, that guy with 4, on the all time scoring list. He is now in 5th place all-time. He now only trails Kareem, Karl Malone, Jordan, and Chamberlain. He did this in 80 less games than Shaq. However, he has been able to knock down 1,452 3-pointers in his career. Shaq has 1. He has also hit 2,000 more free throws than 20120207-100804.jpgShaq who is statistically one of the worst shooters of all time from the line.

“He told me when he was 18 years old that he’d go down as the greatest Laker ever, and one of the greatest players of all time. And he wasn’t lying.” – Shaq said

He truly is one of the best players to ever wear the yellow and purple, and will go down as one of the best scorers of all time. 81 points in a game? Unheard of in this day and age. Of course he averages like .2 assists per season but still. Congrats to Kobe and may you never win another championship.

  1. “Of course he averages like .2 assists per season but still.”

    I nominate this for the Dumbest Sentence of 2012 award. Kobe is 5th all time in total assists by non-point-guards. And 3rd in career assists-per-game among active non-point-guards. Are you sure you’re not retarded?

      • So what he was actually trying to say was that Kobe averages a ton of assists? That’s gotta be the worst use of sarcasm I have ever seen.
