Default Will Kobe be a top 5 SG when he's back?

Or even top 8?
Off the top of my head
Harden
Derozan
Wade
Thompson
Oladipo
Beal
Afflalo
Ellis

This can't be a serious question.

Kobe won't even crack the top 30 players in the NBA when he returns.

Sadly I don't see him being better than any of those guys. He'll have decent enough stats due to protection from the refs, but those of us who really know basketball will recognize just how far he has fallen. Is Kobe the biggest waste of 48 million dollars the world has ever seen? I would have to say yes.

I see him still being better than all of them except Harden(I don't like Harden's game but he's better) and............then I don't really know..I still think a healthy Kobe is better than Derozan, Ellis, Afflalo...yeah Kobe's still better than them....

Wade won't be healthy so I didn't include him...

Kobe is done. He won't even be a top 20 SG next year.

Quality thread btw.

And you think Kobe will be?
I doubt Kobe plays more than 45 games next year. Even if Kobe does stay healthy, you have to be out of your mind to think a 36 year old coming off a torn achilles and an 18 month layoff is going to come back and be any where near the same player he was last season. Everyone gets old, even your precious godbe.

I love how everyone thinks Kobe is going to suck.

Next season is going to be a hell of a season for Laker fans, but not for the typical reasons.

I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt and say he'll return back to his old form. Only time will tell, though.

I'm just answering the OP's question assuming Kobe was healthy...He doesn't have to be as good as he was to still be better than those guys. Ok, assuming Kobe and Wade are both healthy....Harden/Wade>>>>>>Kobe>>>>>rest....

In a perfect World.

1. Wade
2. Kobe
3. Harden

A healthy Wade or Kobe> Harden. Getting free throws and flopping will only get you so far.
