Unfortunately for Ronny Turiaf, the Lakers started winning titles again shortly after he landed with the Golden State Warriors.

Despite not being able to win a title alongside Kobe, Turiaf, like Caron Butler, cherished the time with the future Hall of Famer, according to an interview with David Friedman of 20 Second Timeout:

“Kobe’s just an inspiration to be around – on and off the court. His leadership style is one of modeling — no one works harder than him. No one practices harder.

“All you have to do is watch him, and do what he does to prepare and maintain his game — I couldn’t help but get better as I matured as a player around him — who couldn’t?

“Kobe is simply the best player on the planet! LeBron is trying to get there with his body, his game, his style and his arsenal — and he will. But Kobe will still have been there first.”

It’s a shame that Turiaf missed out on an opportunity to win a title with the Lakers, but he did win a ring with the Miami Heat in 2012 alongside LeBron James.

    Maybe Kobe just has basketball OCD.

    Like what J. Cole once said “want to know the formula for success? Man I studied for this test”
    The truth is you can’t just want to be successful, you got to be obsessed with being successful, if the goal is to be successful.
    Hardest working player ever and this is why I believe he’s the greatest ever. Going through tremendous defenders like Tony Allen, Bruce Bowen, Paul pierce, Doug Christie, James posey, raja bell, etc. No one had it tougher than Kobe and yet he is still able to overcome adversary and keep winning.
    Embarrassing these so called “basketball experts” are saying Bron is ahead of him. Kobe had to go through multiple top 50 players of all time. Kidd, Nash, Garnett, Duncan, iverson, dirk. All LeBron had to go through to get 2 possibly 3 rings is Durant. The fact that he can lose to the 2014 spurs says a lot. 99-2007 spurs are so much better than the 13, and 2014 spurs.
    LeBron got it lucky. This is not the same Duncan or ginobili. Kobe, rondo, and Westbrook were injured last playoffs. Kobe, Rose, and Brandon Roy injuries played a huge part to LeBron’s success.
    Let’s also not forget, LeBron has the 2nd or 3rd best player in the east conference on his team. I don’t recall Pau Gasol ever being the 2nd best player in the west conference.
