    Yall can be mad at 2K all yall want but this is a W


    Why would you be mad? It's literally kobe


    Trying to continue the streak of this comment being on an invincible/GOAT kobe


    hes copying the comment from last years kobe


    I realize that now thanks


    fantastic on next gen but still not worth the MT at all


    rest in peace to the mamba


    His arms makes him look like he isn't even human


    Just because he's black doesn't mean you have to imply that he's a monkey you racist fuck


    Bruh, how is it racist.


    You called a black man a monkey


    I said he isn't even human, not a monkey


    a monkey isn't a human


    Fine Bruh, He the GOAT


    lmao no not even top 5


    WTF does he have a goat card


    no clue, lemme go ask ronnie2k


    Ye, tell him not to put a goat kobe in 2k22


    Because he ain't a goat


    You already have been proven dumb, how much more will you go on? Kobe is being called un-human because he simply was cause of his game and how much time he put into his game. Regardless if you're joking or not, you have no right to decide if he's in the top 5 or not, cause you yourself haven't accomplished shit since your existence. If you believe there's only 1 G.O.A.T, let me humble your little ass, Bill Russel and Wilt were the G.O.A.Ts of the early 1900s, MJ was the G.O.A.T of the 1990s, Kobe was the G.O.A.T of the 2000s and LeBron is the G.O.A.T of the 2010s. If you fail to believe this statement, then it gets proven that you're nothing but a little kid who thinks he's a somebody that knows shit-ton about the art and game of Basketball. Pathetic ass


    Bill and Russ were in the mid 1900's...


    I don't know who you are, pal, so I'm just gonna assume you're on an alt because you're too much of a pussy to reveal yourself. No, I have not been proven dumb by literally anyone, in fact, I have not yet met a single user on this site who can rebut any argument I provide regarding Kobe not being top five all time. First of all, you're bringing up work ethic into an all time ranking conversation, when that is simply just an irrelevant factor. There are a multitude of factors that should be considered, for example: career averages, career totals, advanced stats, accolades, achievements and rings. I am not joking, and I don't know why you would think this. Yes, I believe am I entitled to an opinion thank you very much, just as every other basketball fan is. I don't why you're trying to discredit me, when you fit the exact criteria of having no right to decision, that being not "accomplishing shit since your existence". Perhaps you've just forgotten, but let me remind you what the term "GOAT" refers to. As directly quoted via Quora; "GOAT is utilized as an acronym to mean ‘Greatest Of All Time'. That phrase is used in regards to an all-time great player for a particular team or the National Basketball Association as a whole. GOAT can be utilized in other subjects as well when referring to an individual." --- (Source: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-meaning-of-G-O-A-T-in-the-NBA). You claim that Kobe was the GOAT of the '00s decade, when that is simply not true. Both Tim Duncan and Shaquille O'Neal have far superior cases for that title, and I will gladly go into detail if you are stupid enough to want to debate me on that. And I can almost guarantee that I know more on the subject of basketball then you ever will, buddy. Hop off Kobe's dick and go outside for once, kid.


    Kobe was the GOAT of the 90s because Duncan couldn't do shit by himself and needed two All-Stars (Ginobili and Parker) to win (a) ring(s), and Kobe's back hurt all the time from carrying Shaq. Getting your info from Quora doesn't prove much of the shit that REAL Basketball has, there are unwritten rules and info about the NBA because majority of people believe things that aren't exactly "published". The torch was passed from Wilt-Bill-Magic/Bird-Jordan-Kobe-LeBron-?, meaning the greats "passed the league" into the better hands as their time diminished as a King passes his crown to his descendants. The talks of who's the GOAT will always be thought between LeBron and MJ, yet the reality is that it's the way I mentioned the torch was passed. You in no ways know more about basketball as much as I do because the sport fandom and knowledge has been running in my family since 4 generations. You say "Hop off Kobe's dick and go outside for once, kid" like you think that's an insult, that the most wack ass insult I've seen. You're arrogance can be felt through the screen showing that you hate and despise the times where you get proven wrong not to mention that you hate when someone says something about your say. To tell me to go outside and me replying to that would be point less and a waste of my time to a person who has over 3000+ comments and 300+ forums created on a website that averages a good 4.3 visits/day. You, my buddy, need to find another reason to be a weight in this world cause this ain't for you.


    Can you shut the fuck up and stop cryingpls


    You're getting flamed on the other page (https://2kmtcentral.com/cards/572616#comment-2933197) and you have the audacity to say something to me, fucking dumbass. Hop off your boyfriend's weener buddy, and do something worthy in your life rather than replying on this website. You have no knowledge of basketball, you act like you're a gangster and shit and think you have power over others, you get flamed in every facet yet you still show up with the same dumbass mindset every fucking day. Jesus, save this man from his thoughts


    Mad cu fuck yo bitch


    I don't have the time to copy and paste my counter to your whore ass so I'll just leave the link here: https://2kmtcentral.com/cards/572616#comment-2933306
