    Nelly kept it real.

    If real means loud and ignorant, I agree.

    Btw being louder than the other person doesn't make you right. ESPECIALLY when debating. If he was really stating facts, he would have said it in a calm voice rather than yell over everyone in an attempt to mask the contradictions in his theories.

    For instance, dude said Kobe made Gasol worse, despite Gasol's stats being identical or a little better on the Lakers than on Memphis (taking out the years when Gasol was 3rd in command).

    Fact: A Gasol with sidekick touches was able to put up the same numbers or better numbers than a Gasol with star player touches.

    Conclusion: Kobe made Gasol better.

    Here go that ether for those who aint peep.Nelly blammed em

    Son this 🤬 was entertaining as 🤬 ...it didn't look like no espn sports debate...it looked like everyday sports banter rofl...

    Now with that said I AGREE with most of what nelly said...but you can tell he's not a kobe fan and he loves dwight doward(that's my boy he said)....go back around the 12 min mark where he asked "Who else besides Dwight is held to such high standards?"

    Everybody: Kobe

    Nelly: Kobe?? We back to Kobe?? rofl....

    @Bolded - You could see it as soon as he said "He not gettin 6" lol.

    Nelly kept it real as far as not being PC which something most people want from something like this. This is how sports banter is when you're with your friends/family.

    He also was someone who's an example of "being all in his feelings." You can keep it real without going over the top.

    Slapping the table over & over, head snapping, clapping, yelling, pointing, jumping out the chair etc... If that ain't this:

    the 🤬 he said about who wants to come to LA where ur stats gonna go down and when u win Kobe gets all the credit and if u lose u get all the blame is truth... ArtesT went from being Houston and Sac number option to a role player jumpshooter .... Nash went from being a pg to a spot up Paxon type player.... u will have to sacrifice ur game and be super uNselfish with thick skin to play with Kobe which goes against post centers because they need the ball a lot on the block and need someone to pass it to them and allow them to get in games ... with Kobe jackin up shots and no triangle any more u wont get them. Dwight took a bunch of role players and 3 point shooters to the Finals with it being his team but folk talk so bad about dude like he a scrub cuz it aint work in LA.

    nelly is just spewing that classic "kobe hater rhetoric" we have all heard the same 🤬 for years, even way back to when people was sayin he'll never win another ring without shaq. all that ball hog, don't make people better 🤬 is for the birds. this is a mans game, step it up, the reason why most good players don't wanna get on a team with kobe is because he is so much of a competitor most players would rather beat him on the court rather than play along side him.


    in the case of Dwight.. it just wasn't a good mix for one.. Dwight would jive better with a great pg.. plus he's kinda light in the heart area.

    Nash was a great point guard but wasn't allowed to really run point then got hurt... Dwight will do well anywhere he is allowed to post consistently and get a rhythm and get teams in foul trouble. confidence is a mother too compare the Dwight who was killin Cleveland and LA in the finals to the one on LA

    nash can give you some good minutes but we all know he old and washed up man keep it real. and Dwight is light, straight up. Dwight is too busy being in foul trouble his damn self so him being in a rhythm is streaky as 🤬 , he put his tail between his legs and bowed out, his confidence is glass.

    A lot 🤬 ppl talk about D12 is truth, dude is overrated to the max.. He is a undersized center in height that has no moves on the block and is a horrible free throw shooter some say worse than Shaq... Once his athleticism goes he will be ass dude better pray he can stay healthy b/c the injuries are slowing him down @ a faster pace like it did wade

    A player in his prime walked away from 30 mil to NOT play another 3-4 years with kobe after asking lakers management about amnestying duke and asking how long will he keep playing

    Nuff said

    If The King was on the lakers you think dwight woulda left?
