Over the last weekend we had something incredibly tragic happen. Kobe Bryant passed away in a helicopter crash this last weekend. Something that I really enjoy doing over the years with my family was watching him play.

It’s really cool because over the years my family would gather together and we would watch the Lakers games. he was a big part of bringing our family together.

I can’t tell you how many times my brother and I would sit at the table and argue. But at the end of the day, it was Kobe where we could talk happily.

41 years of age is way too young to pass. It’s actually quite insane that this happened. The guy was one of the best basketball players of all time and he was a pretty good human is well. He did have some controversy surrounding him, at one point during his career. But ultimately he was found not guilty. So how can you really get mad at a guy if he was ultimately found not guilty?

Versus the Suns

To say that Kobe Bryant dominated the Suns would be an understatement. He did more than just dominate them. He demolish them.

He basically made one of the best offensive teams of all time, non existent. That is why the Lakers was the favorite team to bet on.

Is the reason that the Suns do not have a championship. if Kobe did not exist or was not near is it good or did not have that mamba mentality, there is no way the Suns would not have 11 of those years.

What’s really interesting, is that even no Kobe was so good, he was not actually favored in the Suns match ups per http://betmeister.net. The suns were the favorite. Why? Because they were such a better team.

Yet despite being absolutely stacked, the Suns could never beat the Lakers in the playoffs.
