Kobe Bryant/Philadelphia Hate. E60.
 

 
i just caught the kobe philadelphia thing on espn, about how philly hates him, and honestly i don't have a problem with Kobe, but does anyone from Philly really consider him like a home town guy?

he lived here till he was what 6? went to italy and came back for highschool ball, then went to LA, its not like he was a really big staple here. i dunno maybe its just me but i dont consider him a home town hero because he didn't do much in the home town.

agree/dissagree. just kind of wanted to get peoples thoughts.

76ers fans kinda embraced iverson as the anti kobe.... the kid from the streets, even though he was from VA.... but during the finals it got more heated cause kobe would have 3 commercials to every 1 of iversons... as a young buck, I got disgusted watching all them mcdonalds joints. 2 lol.... people always thought kobe was a spoiled brat/house n*gga/pre modona etc etc... its funny 10 years later looking back on things though... kobe became a complete player while iverson eventually gave up and threw the management and other young players under the bus... 9 outta 10 cats woulda taken iverson over kobe in 2000 and now its the complete opposite... imo im in the minority but i think peeps got over infatuated with ai's image and persona and gave him more of a pass then anybody I can or my relatives can recall in the philly sports scene

but yeah I was at game 5 of the bucks series in 2001 and dudes already had vulgar signs and chants out s**tting on and calling out kobe... honestly i think regardless of the italy trip, if kobe woulda grew up in a more hood area as opposed to the burbs, the reaction woulda been a lot different.. cause that seemed to be the biggest beef with kobe

He doesn't have much of a connection to Philly.. It was pretty much where he was born and where he played HS basketball. Whereas Lebron was born in Ohio, grew up in Ohio and now plays ball there.

He's just not a Philly guy, and as much as he tried to affiliate himself with the city and make it his hometown, people just didn't accept him. s**t, he even went as far to have Philly rappers on his failed rap album (Black Thought, Beanie Sigel, Broady Boy). He was never the type of person you would a.ssociate with the city. Even as a high school player he was too high profile, too protected/sheltered and really just too "Hollywood".

I guess he learned after a while that he would have to accept that Philadelphia won't accept him with open arms like he expected they would. So now he just goes to his high school and that's about it.

Maybe it would have been different had he played for the 76ers but .

Can't even imagen what it be like if the sixers took kobe and LA had iverson, wonder if iverson could have pulled it off if he had Shaq

Probably in 99-00 cause Shaq was a one-man force of nature..

I don't know what would happen in 00-01 and beyond cause Iverson was pretty ball-dominant and couldn't play D.

any above averege 2 guard woulda prolly won with shaq at that time... iverson pretty much bullied stackhouse outta the city early and made it clear he wanted his 20+ shots a game, so to be honest imo if his ego woulda taken a smaller role to play with shaq... hell even when he fell off he didn't want to be a sidekick... its funny all these nba cats and coaches have nice things to say about ai, but no star players were eager to play with him and coaches didn't wanna bring him on board... hence larry brown in charlotte

i kind of figured that from the piece they showed cause they did mention the burbs and not philly, he just seemed to have some hate back like he had to prove somthing to a city, that people dont really a.ssociate him with i guess. After the all-star game booing i can see, but seems like he had this built up before that
