Which was the better Kobe era?
Whether it's through play, accolades, achievements or whatever? Both are legendary imo.
#8 was HUGE part on a 3 peat and best playoff record. Multiple 40+ point 10+ rebound games, numerous big key clutch shots, 81 points, 62 in 3 quarters, 12 3 pointers in one game, multiple 40, 50, 60 point games etc?
#24 was a bit more polished of a player. Displayed incredible footwork and post game, a better "teammate", won his long overdue MVP award, 2 FMVPs to go along with 2 more rings, MSG scoring record etc, 2 olympic gold medals etc.?
I hate choosing, but i think i gotta go with number 8. Lakers should retire both tbh
