I think Kobe's main obstacle as an analyst would be that he'd probably just relate everything he was watching to something he did. He'd be pointed and well spoken but his actual analysis would be very narrow.

Paul and Durant (to various extents) would never feel comfortable in the studio, and it would just end up being awkward.

Lebron would probably just end up getting bored, he'd be articulate but would kind of slack off in terms of actually giving a shit.

Personally, I think once Blake gets into his late 30s, he'd probably prove to be the best of the bunch.

All of five them, I have no doubt would be able to break down play and be perfectly fine in delivering excellent analysis on finer points of the game (as well as the big picture) as I think all five them are smarter basketball minds than most every former player working for ESPN or TNT but I think their skills that would make for "enjoyable" TV might be lacking.

Yeah, Blake looks good in commercials. He'd look good on tv being an analyst

I don't see LeBron doing it or Durant. I could see Kobe and Chris Paul doing it.

LeBron seems to isolate himself as to Kobe who doesn't. It's a toss up though you never know. Maybe we might see them all one day doing it at least a few times.

I can see Dwight Howard... but he'd probably get fired for hitting on a co-workers daughter.

Lebron just seems to have a different agenda for his post-playing career that doesn't necessarily fit with being an on-air analyst. Same goes for Kobe actually, in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Kobe was the least heard from of the five mentioned after he stopped playing (aside from his name being mentioned constantly and "what is Kobe up to" featurettes on SportsCenter). Paul seems the most likely to go directly into coaching after he's done playing and would bypass any other option. I can't imagine Durant putting himself through being an on-air analyst, just not something he would seem to find appealing at all. Blake seems like the guy who would most likely find it to be a logical career move after he's done playing.

ernie: what do you think about jabari parker's season lebron?

lebron: well ernie i heard that andrew wiggins and julius randle were planning on moving to the hornets together, if i was jabari i would take a pay-cut to join them because that is a once in a life-time opportunity.
