When Kobe gets hot, he has to be just about the most unstoppable perimeter player the game has seen. He has been able to string together some really impressive performances, and in that sense, he is sort of a standard.
He isn't nearly as consistent as MJ, but when he gets hot for a string of games, he's damn impressive.
no when kobe gets hot he's the best player of all time. thats probably the main reason why most educated bball fans have him in the top 2-5 all time.
