    ESPN Ranks Kobe 12, Behind Oscar, Lebron, Hakeem, Shaq & Duncan

    What are your thoughts?! He definitly belongs ahead of Hakeem and Oscar. But then again it is ESPN

    Even the biggest Kobe haters have him at 10. No big deal though, his legacy is cemented amongst the best of all time. Prolly the second biggest global basketball icon ever behind Jordan.

    I can see an argument from anywhere between 8-12... Id have him in my top 10 though... probably 9 or 10

    Ya I think this is about the lowest I'd not have issues with but personally I have him 9 or 10 so a little higher than this list.

    I also think they missed some in the middle teens and their order but it's not horrible or anything.

    You can argue the longevity factor, but if I'm getting either Kobe or Hakeem to lead my organization during their 10-12 year prime, I'm taking Hakeem with ease. A top 5 defensive player in history who's going to give me 25 and 12 with durability, then step it up in the playoffs?? Yes, please. Next question.

    I'd take Hakeem too but personally I have kobe over Oscar, Russell (limited watching him so no expert but I have him 11), and arguably bird as well due to longevity.

    Their list is based on "peak performance and career value." I personally have Kobe #5 on my all-time list because I believe he had a better career than Dream or Shaq. But their limitted focus including peak performance makes it a lot easier to sell Kobe and buy on peak Hakeem or Diesel. At their absolute best I would take both of them over Kobe with relative ease.

    I guess ESPN only cares about the statistical category. I'll choose Kobe over Big O and Hakeem in a heartbeat. And LeBron at THIS point of his career is NOT a top 10 player.

    To be clear, nearly nobody outside of Kobe stans will find #12 a ridiculous placement. It may be higher or lower than they have him, but ~8-13 is Kobe's range for many objective fans.
