Imagine you are Kobe Bryant and a five Time NBA Champion.

That sure sounds pretty great right?

Now this dream team forms in Miami and the world is set on fire.

"How will anyone beat the Heat?"

"Are the Lakers good enough to beat the Heat?"

"I hate LeBron!" (Sorry that was a Cleveland fan) 

Anyways, moving on to Kobe Bryant. He is arguably the best player in the NBA. All of last season I believed LeBron was the best. Then Kobe decided it was the postseason, and I'm going to score 30 a game while LeBron chokes as usual. Situation normal for Kobe right? How about WRONG! He's never seen this Big Three before.

Two superstars and an NBA All-Star would scare most star players, but not Kobe Bryant. This could be a potential re-enactment of Kobe Bryant learning of LeBron's move to Miami.

Kobe Bryant's agent: Kobe! Did you hear the news?

Kobe Bryant: No, what happened?

Agent: LeBron joined Wade and Bosh!

Kobe: Wow!

Agent: What do you think Kobe?

Kobe: Wait a second...You are telling me I can take out these Wade and LeBron punks in one series?

Agent: I guess you could put it that way, but what about the Big Three?

Kobe: Big Three? What have those guys ever won?

Agent: Well, Wade won a Finals in 2006, LeBron has all those MVP's, and Bosh is an all-star.

Kobe: Wade won a title when I was rolling with Chris Mihm and Smush Parker in the starting lineup. LeBron and Bosh can't win unless they're on MY Olympic team. 

Agent: So you’re not concerned?

Kobe: Concerned? I'm going to the gym right now so I can take out these pretenders next summer.

So you see, nothing is better then taking out two superstars in an NBA Finals. People think Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant are scared of the Heat, but these guys are champions.

Phil is in Montana right now drawing up the game-winning play, and Kobe is rehabbing his knee so he can take out the Big Three this upcoming NBA season. 

What separates Kobe from LeBron and Wade is his ability to win in any situation. Even in the midst of a career worst shooting night in Game Seven of the NBA Finals, Kobe still rebounded his way to a double double. Then decided to in Ron Artest's words "He PASSED ME the Ball!" 

I cannot predict the future, but it's safe to say at this point. Kobe wants nothing more than to take out these guys in the 2011 NBA Finals and show that he is the better than the King and the Flash. He doesn't have to announce either.
