<h5>#1 Kobe Bryant</h5>

Picture 10 of 10



It was a close contest with Moses and Kobe but Kobe wins out because of his 5 NBA CHIPs. After being named the ‘96 Naismith Prep Player of the Year out of suburban Philadelphia, Kobe was selected as the 13th player selected in the 1996 NBA Draft. The Lakers then traded center Vlade Divac to the Hornets for the rights to Bryant.

Career Stats: 25.3 ppg, 5.3 rebs, 4.7 ast, 1.5 stl

          LeBron is not clutch and he can easily be shutdown by Paul George. Kobe should be #1 because of his leadership

      • Moi

        Garnett or Dirk?!? Why are you such a LeBron hater?
        No, Bron is #1 and since I’m replying, I’ll help you out some more:
        Moses Malone is #2
        Garnett would be #3
        Dirk #4
        Kobe #5
        Howard 6
        Amare 7
        Kemp 8
        and I’d omit O’Neal and T-Mac and include
        Pau Gasol at #9 (I know he briefly went to college in Spain, but I don’t think he played ball for them)
        and Yao Ming at #10
        There you go.

          Good list but you wouldn’t put T-Mac?

          For a long stretch he was one of the greatest NBA scorers the league had ever seen!

          Lol, you forgot to delete your cheesy signature.No, yeah, I’d omit T-Mac. Sure he had a little run there with the Magic when he was dropping 30+ points a game. But he was missing too much, as he always does, and he never really got many wins for his team. If I’m comparing whole careers of other guys, I have to look at T-Macs entire stretch, which isn’t very impressive. Especially when you consider how much he fell off.

        • 600 fuck aiki

          he never had a team cmon now the rockets were his best team and they were all hurt

      Kobe will always be one of the best players ever. Argue it all you want, but it will never change

    • TADa

      Doesn’t mean anything. Kobe is one of the greatest players all time and nothing you can do or say will ever change the facts. So just let it go

    what about Manu Ginobili?

    I must admit I find it funny that Dirk is rated below T-Mac. The both threw down back in 06 and dirk walked away with 53 t mac 48 and the mavs won the game. Plus Dirk has been to the finals twice and has one ring. In the last ten years how many times has the mavs not gone to the playoffs?  So to be ranked below Dwight Howard? I would put him at number 5.
