Re: If Kobe Can't Win It All in 2013 Then He Should NOT Be Top 10
Your "legacy" can't go backwards on anyone's list based on what happens in the future just for the sake of those happenings themselves.
Now what CAN be logical is if something that happens in the future that makes you realize that you were overrating (or underrating) the player in the past.
Like, if for instance, Westbrook (just a random player i thought of) gets hurt next year and OKC still makes the WCF. Some people may then come to the conclusion that they over valued Westbrook and that he is not as good as they once thought, and I would not blame them.
