Kobe does have the advantage of a longer career, but I think most people
respect Magic's contributions a bit more...
And I am not dissing Kobe in any way. They are completely different types
of players... But Kobe's leadership didn't blossom until PJax came back. Magic
had that from day 1.
Not a fair statement, Magic played 2 years in college and won the NCAA championship......Kobe came in straight out of High School.
