    Sorry if this has already been posted. Anybody have Kobe's numbers against the Rockets, Spurs, Blazers, and Pacers, so we can see for ourselves?

    I can't believe he gives more credit to the babysitter raping guy who asked Bryant for his shoes after he scored that 3 over him than he gives to Mobley.

    Maybe he's just partial to basketball players accused of rape.

    I'm running an NBA database. So I can provide some info here. Although Kobe only played against Artest 3 times, we can still see why Artest is one of the best defender in the league. Mobley actually did a better job than Bowen. Patterson is the worst Kobe defender among these players.

    I dont think you can base what a player does to the whole team on 1 player. It would be interesting to see Kobe v. all of those guys head to head while both are on the court.

    He was right about one thing, "you'll see friday night." Cat, except for some iffy shot selection, played well, hitting open shots, and holding Kobe to some very difficult shots.

    All these data come from games played in the last two seasons, including playoffs.

    well mark stein is pretty much an idiot, so ignore it. Him saying mobley should not be in their instead of patterson shows u he is an idiot. Kobe always light up patterson.

    He didn't need to diss Cat, but he is right though about one thing. The only person who can stop Kobe is Kobe. The guy just doesn't take No for an answer. Oh whoops, did I say that out loud? :D

    Both of them played heavy minutes and attempted a lot low-percentage shots (Kobe's 27 vs Cat's 15 shots per game)

    hotbolla is right there is no saying "no" to Kobe when he is taking it to the hole.
