If you tryna put Nash on Wade's level you should just stop it right now. Lakers drafted Bynum as a 17 year old kid. Lakers traded for Kobe on draft night as a 17 year old kid. The Lakers pulled off the Pau steal but other than that they took chances and won. No shortcuts. The Heat are still the best team in the league and LeBron will still be talked about for bailing out on his team when they put it together to suit his playstyle leading them to back to back 60 win teams. Kobe won't get that hate because he stuck it out when the team seemed to be going backwards and not forward. Not to mention all of these players trying to team up to combat the Heat. Just like when Kobe and Shaq were the hottest thing going every team wanted that one two punch. Now every team wants that big 3 all because of the Heat.
