Since retard fan glorify "rings" as an individual achievement and volume point total as the pinnacle of a players impact, Kobe Bryant is a far more popular player and thus has more low IQ fans who are bias in favor of him when making rankings. Thats the only reason anyone suggests he is Top 10. Non Kobe Stans often feel pressure into sticking him somewhere because they know theyll face a hurricane of "rings" arguments and blowback if they dont, and they are ill equipped to articulate how overrated that measurement is, even if they actually know it to be true deep down.

Too bad you'll get labeled as a troll.

He's the exact same player as Tracy McGrady, Vince Carter, Allen Iverson, Carmelo Anthony, etc... except he's had longevity and luck.

So what you're saying is Kobe was socially awkward, could be a disrespectful asshole to his teammates/coaches alienating them in the process, couldn't adjust as well to his teammates personalities, and took longer to mature.

In response to me pointing out that Kobe was a 17 year old teenager, fresh off his prom who couldn't even legally drink, he tried to stay away from the nightlife to stay focused and decided not to "bond"with his 30 year old teammates at nightclubs, strip-clubs, movies and instead decided watching countless hours of film on players from the past, studying his opponents (teams/individuals) and putting in countless hours working on his game.

You're making it sound as though his teammates were filthy losers.

That Larry Bird is an era-specific player. Probably the dumbest I've read here.

Kobe fans defending Shaq now. Priceless. But sure, keep acting like it isn't close and/or "dumb".

That would be 2000 Shaq (aka MDE). I excluded him for a reason.

Gotta take the whole season into account. Not only that, though, his defense wasn't as strong.

doesn't even have to be Kobe fans, no one's "defending" Shaq because what you said is leaning towards outrageous. any one of 2000-2002 Shaq extremely dominant, something 2012 or 2013 Lebron have not shown yet.
