removed references to other quote archive[edit]

Sites that are compendiums of quotes (much like Wikiquote) are not primary sources, and should not be used as references in Wikiquote (it would be rather circular to reference a quote on one quote compendium with a another compendium). This is discussed in Wikiquote:Sourcing if you'd like to read more about it.

from anon talk, User talk:[edit]

The quotes that were listed were all false quotes that were simply mocking Kobe Bryant by saying things like "I am the greatest ever, I hate Michael Jordan", etc. None were sourced and all were fake. I was trying to delete the things that someone obviously put there as a joke. I'm sorry, I didn't know the rules.—This unsigned comment is by Brandonrye (talk • contribs) . gn d

    • talking about Dwight Howard, and reminiscing about dunking over him in Howard's rookie season.
