Default Re: ESPN compares Kobe to Pistol Pete...

How about some numbers:

Pistol averaged (over 658 games at 37.2 MPG): 24.2 PPG at 44.1 FG% and 82% FT%, 4.2 PRG, 5.4 APG, 1.35 SPG, 0.25 BPG, 3.7 TO, 2.6 PF

Note: TOs were not recorded for Pistol's first 7 years. So this is the average of his last 142 games. ST and BLK were not tracked during his first 3 yrs so those #'s come from his last 434 games.

Kobe Bryant averaged (over 784 games at 36.2 MPG): 24.6 PPG at 45.3 FG% and 83.8 FT%, 5.2 RPG, 4.5 APG, 1.49 SPG, 0.60 BPG, 2.91 TO, 2.6 PF

Neither figure includes the playoffs.

I say push, pretty much. IOW, the comparison has some basis.
