I agree, but talking about the top 10 itself, I personally think Kareem should hop to number 2.

It's definitely arguable.

You can debate the order all day, but those 10 are the greatest ever.

Top 3 aren't really arguable...it's Wilt/Kareem/Jordan.

Kobe is now "officially" top 10. Anyone denying it at this point is either a hater or doesn't have proper perspective in making these lists. He'll likely finish in the top 5.

You'd put Kobe over Shaq?

Kobe has the potential to finish above Shaq. He's not there yet, but his style of play will age well and the Lakers have the right players to stay contenders for a long time.

Kobe is not Top 10. Winning only 1 Ring as the Leader does not make you Top 10.

And Kareem is #2. #5 is way too low. The guy has 6 Rings, 6 MVP's and is a 19x All-Star. #5 is way too low. He is a Top 3 Lock.

In your opinion, what would Kobe have to accomplish to be higher than top 5?

Jerry West moves down to #11.

Where is MOSES MALONE, HONDO WITH 8 TITLES AND VERY GOOD STATS, DR J.. Where is Oscar robertson? I think kobe is anywhere 12-15... Kobe has 1 MVP and 1 Finals MVP... Kobe's stats are good but not great and he has played with great talent in his career.. Kobe will wind up anywhere from 5-7..
Last years finals really hurt Kobe's ability to land any better than that.. Still give credit to the one guy who eats, breathes and probably ****s basketball

That's a top 10 player of all time. Stop hating on Kobe Bryant because the guy is the 3rd best player in the Post Jordan Era.
