Thank you Mr. West

Jerry West, the man who told the Lakers to take a gamble on Kobe Bryant at the ripe age of seventeen.  Jerry West the logo of the NBA.  Jerry West, the guy who just said that LeBron has surpassed Kobe.  As a Laker fan, all I can say is thank you.  Thank you for igniting that fire under the former MVP.

Just yesterday Jerry West publicly said that LeBron was a better player than Kobe.  He still gives Kobe his accolades for being the best closer and finisher, but Bronbreezy has surpassed Kobe in the NBA world as best player.  No longer is Kobe king of the NBA.  He had his one year to shine and get that MVP, now it is LeBrons turn.

Kobe, made nothing of the situation.  He said that if he paid any attention to who’s the best in the NBA he would go crazy.  It is something that you really just do not get wrapped up with.  Yet for Kobe Bryant, he did hear, and he did take this one personally.

For Denver fans, they saw just a glimmer of what is to come.  Kobes mission to show the logo he still has what it takes to be the best is just starting.  Will Kobe do it?  If he wins the championship, I would say it is safe to say the NBA is his once again.  All Kobe wants is a chance to go up against that guy whom his mentor said just surpassed him.  To show his is still the elite of the elite.

All I can say as a Laker fan is thank you Mr. West.  I know that there was an altieor motive behind that publicized comment of yours in regards to the two best players in the NBA.
