i didnt realize the media hated kobe so much... its kind of funny.

Truth is Kobe Bryant will never win the MVP of the league. He is hated too much. Hated by those who cast votes. Hated too much by those he plays against. And the two All-Star Game MVPs he's won, well, they don't count in this scenario. Voting Kobe as the best basketball player in the world for a day is one thing, honoring him with that same title for an entire season … in the infamous words of Bobby Brown's ex-wife: "Oh, hell to the No!"


Writers won't honor Kobe like that, not even when in good consciousness they want to or would like to. As one writer said to me when the subject was brought up in conversation, very apropos for an election year, "Kobe's electability quotient is zero." In other words, he's Ralph Nader.

Why is Kobe so hated? I'm being sincere too when I ask that? Are people jealous?

I think it would be ridiculous if he doesnt get it this year. I love Chris Paul and all but common, he has the best player non-stop. CP4 wasnt so good in the first half of the season.

Don't forget about KG. When you're experience, respected, on the most high-profile team, on the best team with the best story, and your opposition is:

A young player in low-key New Orleans

The guy no-one likes (I think the article is dead on)/the rapist

You have a shot. Also over the last month when I've watched raptorsnation.net leaguepass feeds, I've seen a lot of broadcasters get asked "So, Paul, Kobe, Lebron? Who is it?" and they reply with "Oh... I actually like Garnett." Dude has respect

Personally I think it'd be the worst choice since Karl Malone [/Bill Simmons] because of the strength of the other two, but anyways. I think he'd be the Nash to Kobe and Lebron back in his 2nd MVP year. At the end of the day I still think Paul wins, but regardless, you never know.

Hate that he's a veteran, a champion.
Hate that, hate it with all your heart.
And hate that he's loved for the exact same reasons.

Hate him because he's a bad person, an adulterer(at least), a rapist(at worst). Anyone that loves him for that should be shot.

I don't wanna turn this into a Kobe discussion, cuz I've been known to do this too much.
But if you think he raped a girl, you are crazy my friend.

An adulterer yes he is. But we all make mistakes, some bigger than others. I think you seem to forget about Kobe's sincere apology. He CRIED on national television. This is a star who is supposed to be an ego-centric maniac who has the most pride in the NBA. Can't forget he also bought a 4 million dollar ring for his wife, people may say he was trying to buy back her love, but $4 million is too much, and besides, the main point was that he apologized tearfully.

i don't wanna start an argument either, but I've always believed people hate on Kobe and bring up the rape/adultery thing because his game has so few flaws, that all that is left are personal attacks on his prior indiscretions.

also, i'm not the biggest of kobe fans, but i dont hate the guy either, but that girl didnt seem very credible any way you put it.

i could write a shitload on this subject, but this topic is done and over with and i dont wanna stir the pot
