I do agree with him being #3 since Jordan, but I don't agree with him being Top 10.

I can admit that Kobe has sealed up the 10th spot. The only other player that can argue for it is Moses Malone.

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.
I do not see him passing Shaq, Duncan, Kareem, Mj, Magic, Larry Bird, Wilt and Russell. You can argue with Hakeem if he wins another ring even though I still think he is better. But definitely not making top 5.

I think the fact that he has been outplayed in the biggest of series hurts Kobe... Not once but twice... 04 AND 08...

mj, kareem , and russell have titles in college, pros and olympics..

Kareem 3 college and 6 pro
russell has 11 titles and I think college titles as well
MJ has 6 titles in his first 13 seasons and 1 college title

I didn't even get into the MVP'S or College player of the year awards..

I think he could certainly equal or pass Shaq and Duncan if he wins another couple of rings as the centerpiece of a team.

Kobe with another ring almost seals it in terms of passing Duncan. Another one will put him over Shaq, Bird and Russell. Nothing he can realistically do can put him over Kareem and Wilt (who are #2 and #3 respectively).

Okay? Doesn't mean sh*t. There is NO argument now, Kobe is top 10. Eat it.

Good list but since Lebron is already better than Kobe he is well on his way to being in the top 5 and maybe the best ever depending how many titles he wins. I am assuming this lists hinges on titles right and not just pure talent and greatness individually ?

I disagree with that, Shaq has 3 finals mvp. And one more will definitely not put him over Russell.
