Default Where would you draft Kobe?

In an all time draft. Does he crack your top 10?

How many players are clearly better to build around? That doesn't necessarily mean they're better.

All depends, do I want a dynasty and a bunch of titles for my team? Or do I want like only 1 title and playoff exits but my player has great ass Per, WS stats throughout the regular seasons?

I'd always build around size. There's likely a dozen seven footers who I'd take before him, not to mention obvious guards and forwards like Jordan, Magic, Bird etc...

Yeah, centers I see going before Kobe as well:

Wilt
Russell
Moses
Ewing

Not too sure about Ewing, but he was very impressive in his peak/prime too (if were talking about 89-90 Ewing).

That's about 10 right there.
