ESPN said that Kobe is the 25th best player in the NBA.
ESPN said that the Lakers would be the 12th seed.
The GM survey for the first time listed Kobe as the second best shooting guard in the NBA.
Time to prove the haters wrong once again!!!
Go look up video of him running the fast break by himself back in Orlando.
He had no problem putting the ball on the floor and keeping control over it while not letting others strip him.
Hakeem had similar handles I believe.
Not saying it would make sense for them to do that but they have done it.
LBJ would WAX kobe
x2.......Probably 8 out of ten! Lebron is bigger, stronger, faster all the way around!
He even beat Bow Wow

You versus LeBron? Who wins?
Me. No question. As far as one-on-one, I’m the best to ever do it.
Now on topic.....
Kobe is a GREAT 1 vs 1 player. Is he the best ever? Who knows. I think MJ would beat him. But on any given day or week, the top players of all time can take each other. In a 7 game series, I think MJ wins, and it would probably not go the full 7 games. But that's just my opinion. It is quite possible Kobe could take him in a series too. That doesn't make Kobe better than Jordan. And it doesn't mean that Kobe is a better 1 vs 1 player than Jordan. It simply means that great players are great players for a reason. They all have competitive drive, and are insanely talented.
I do think there are other guys in the history of the game that could take Kobe. It isn't a crazy thought. Think about it. If Kobe played a 7 game series of 1 vs 1 against Bird for example. Bird could be hot for 4 straight game, take the ball first, and not miss 11 shots straight. With Bird, he could do that for 4 games in a row. He was that good of a shooter. Even with someone in his face. But then they play another series, and Kobe gets the ball first, he is going right by Bird almost every time. So this definitive "Kobe is the best, he would destroy this guy or that guy" really is all speculation. And not really all that realistic either.
Can anyone seriously say to me, that you have never just backed someone down all the way to the paint in a 1 on 1 game? It gets tiring but Im not in the shape I used to be, I never worried about getting stripped because you only have to keep track of 1 pair of hands. How hard can that be for a professional center? LMFAO Shaq would kill everyone 1 on 1.
Perimeter players would murder him too, but you dont think eventually one of those jumpers falls flat? Ill take my chance with a Shaq dunk attempt over any shot in NBA history.
Who won the last 1 on 1 competition? Wasnt it Kareem or some bigman?
