Re: A question about Kobe
it's hard for me to gauge if kobe looks more or less athletic right now because i'm unfamiliar with the competition. he got some nice lift when he rammed down that dunk going across the lane last night. i would be less concerned about kobe's quickness slipping due to age than injury. he has been injury prone since shaq left, and that's worrisome. with his post-game and touch he should be a top 5 player into his 30s as long as his body holds up.
