IFWT_Kobe x PG 3

The war between Kobe Bryant and ESPN is continuing to brew.  First they ranked him the 40th best player in the NBA.  Bryant then responded by calling them idiots.  ESPN then fired back saying they overrated him in the first place.  Kobe then took another dig at the sports giant by calling them idiots yet again while telling rookie Julius Randle to be smart.  And now we have this long and detailed article from ESPN which blames Bryant for the Lakers downfall.  In addition to his contract extension, they also write details from anonymous sources saying that Bryant contributed to the Lakers inability to land a big star and whenever they did get one, Bryant drove them away (i.e Dwight Howard).  One of the big stars they mentioned was Paul George but he denies the claim.

NBA: Lakers Coach Byron Scott Says 3-Pointers Get You to the Playoffs But Don’t Win Championships

NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Miami Heat

It’s only preseason and Lakers new hire Byron Scott has already said some pretty unorthodox and downright “huh?!” worthy statements.  Scott laid out his offensive strategy and almost eradicated the three-pointer, saying he wants the team to take fewer than 15 three-point attempts per game.  In fact, in the last two games the Lakers posted a 95-8 mid-range to three-point shot ratio, which is crazy.  He was asked to further clarify his stance on three-pointers and this is what he had to say.

NBA: ESPN Fires Back At Kobe After He Calls Them “Idiots”, But Did They Go Too Far?


It is funny that a story centered around the word “respect” could come off as so disrespectful and condescending.
I know by now all you guys heard about ESPN ranking Kobe 40th in this years edition of the NBA player rankings. Whether you love or hate Kobe, the rank caused a huge uproar across all of social media. Kobe replied by calling them “idiots” when asked about his spot on the list, and that should of been the end of that. But someone at ESPN felt the need to keep it going and write a story about respect, while seemingly disrespecting one of the greatest players ever.
