If you mean in a given year among the active players, yes this is pretty dumb. But speaking for all time greats, then yeah Kobe never made it to top 10. He was 11th at best until Lebron moved up and dropped him to 12th. A general misconception is that Kobe was kicked out of top 10, which cant be true since Kobe was never in top 10 to begin with. You cant drop out of a group if you were never in it.
