Kobe will not get another ring in his career unless he plays with a guy named James or Durant... and that ain't happening.

How many? I'd like to know.
Bill Russell and MJ seem like the only ones.
Even if you don't count Mjs stint with the wizards.

Bird didn't, Magic didn't, Shaq nope.

Kareem didn't, Karl Malone lost in his last year with the Lakers, Dr J never did, Jerry West didn't, Oscsr Robertson didn't, Walt Frazier didn't, John Havlicek didn't, Wilt Chamberlain didn't, Bob Cousy didnt.

Are we just going by Nba?

I was going by the NFL but that's a lot of NBA players on that list.

I go back to my original question....have you seen the Lakers play lately? They're not winning a title anytime soon and don't make the playoffs even with Kobe.

Yea a lot of Nba players that didn't win in their last years.
And only 2 that did.

For the NFL I can only think of Elway.
And Michael Strahan if you count that.

But, I agree with you. Players will chase that last ring before they retire, but it doesn't happen too often.

I don't know why the NBA did that to Sacramento. Sacramento had the best NBA fans for YEARS!!! NBA teams HATED playing here because it was so loud. This city would have gone insane if the Kings had won. There was ZERO chance a team from the East was beating the Kings.

The Kings were the best team in the NBA that year. Even the Lakers know that. NBC may have wanted LA in the Finals but the Kings were a MUCH, MUCH, MUCH more entertaining team to watch than the Lakers. And better too!
Yeah, I don't think there's any doubt about that game being fixed, at least by the officials. Don't care for either the Lakers or the Kings, but I remember watching that game and not believing what I was seeing. Don't like Mike Bibby, but that forearm shiver Kobe gave him was just dirty. There are lots of reasons why I don't like Kobe, and that play is towards the top of the list.

I've lived in Sacramento since 2001, followed the Kings before that. I went to playoff games and followed this team back then as closely as I did the Gamecocks. There is no way the Lakers were better than those Kings team. Game 6 had people all over the country scratching their heads and calling out the NBA. I've never seen anything like it before or since. That game was one of the worst officiated sporting events I've ever seen.

Vlade was back in town this week. The players from that team are still loved and adored here. And the players feel the same about the city.
