Default Kobe is not the greatest Laker of all time.

KAJ > Magic > Shaq > Kobe > West > Mikan


Admittedly the Lakers have a history of some elite players. It's too bad Kobe will never live up to the hype of being the greatest Laker.

Default Re: Kobe is not the greatest Laker of all time.

He's already considered the greatest Laker by many.

Out of the guys you listed only Kobe and Magic played their entire career with the Lakers and both have career leader stats for the team.

You have to factor that in. As a matter of fact, it's very important.

*yawn* Kobe stays making haters mad lol. Kobe has damn near every laker record broken, or will be close to breaking most of them.

You most likely are judging it based off of PEAK, not CAREER.

Also, you're NOT the shittiest poster here. Hank is. You're number two. Incidentally, "number two" is also a euphemism for shit, so you're still a winner.

Even if we are talking about peak...one can argue that Kobe is still in his peak.

Looking at stats, there is no evidence of drop off.

People who consider Kobe the greatest Laker are nice guys like Magic, and Lakers fans who started watching the team in 2000.

Of course he's not, but then again, he has to compete with a top 5 player in history, which he's not.

I find it funny that a Minny fan thinks he knows what Laker fans are thinking.

A lot of Laker fans believe Kobe is the greatest and it really doesn't matter because you can put Kobe and Magic's name in a hat and pick one.....nobody would care. Either one you can make a strong case as greatest Laker.

Just pick one.

That doesn't make sense. Why do people underrate Kareem so much?

Kobe can never ever be better than Kareem.

Toss up between him and magic. Kobe is helped by longevity and all his team records.

Anyone saying Kobe isn't top 2 is either a ****ing moron or just trolling.

It's because Kareem is not a life long Laker.

He has played with other teams.
