Okay? Just another stat to make your boy Kobe look like he's in that top 5 GOAT class.

Of course there's a caveat in the OP, just to make Kobe look better than he is. We can't just leave it at "highest finals appearance percentage by MVP winners"

reading fail

it clearly says "as starts/corner stones of a franchise"

in no way was kobe reponsible for a team as a 6th man. if they won the title he would have gotten no credit in 1997 or 1998. he was the teams 4th best player

not until 1998-99 did he become a corner stone top 2 player

20ppg/5reb/5ast that year

no because we can't judge a player based on something they have no controll over.

kobe didn't have a legit impact in the lakers success until 1999 when he became a starter

if the lakers made the finals in 1997 or 1998. he would have gotten zero credit. so why give him credit for them not making it?

Ah, so we're cooking the numbers and making caveats as usual to make something appear better than it really is? Typical.

Stats don't count unless they favor Kobe

Has someone ever so clearly out of the top 5 been considered so by stans only at such a high rate? That should be the real thread content

Here's a stat for you: 6 >> 5
And in this case 23 >>>>> 24
