what? Whoever is ranking Kobe in the top 10 is delusional. Probably based on ring count.

Ring count is probably also the reason D-Rob and other players like him are underrated.

To answer OP's question, I would take David Robinson.

agreed.

Kobe's OVERRATING is based on ring count alone.

He is an all-time great btw but probably around 12-15 spots. Not higher than that.

Kobe

Dude has 5 rings and counting.. Bailed out Shaq multiple times in the PO to win multiple championships.. And we know Shaq was better than DRob by a wide margin.. If you want to win multiple division title you will choose DRob but if you want to win multiple NBA titles, your pick should be none other than the Black Mamba.. Only player that I will pick over Kobe are MJ, KAJ and Magic..

Give me the one who's NOT a world class, professional ball hog.

Kobe is great. He's the polished, ELITE version of the ball hog you hate playing with on the court. He has enough positive traits that most of his negatives are overlooked, and if one dares point the negatives out, they get shunned.

D'Rob is a SUPERIOR version of Dwight Howard.


Why would you build a team around 6' 6" INEFFICIENT guard who shoots from long-range when D'Rob is available as a FIRST PICK in draft!

Bosh is the guy who's game reminds me of David.

Now I don't want anyone to assume I'm calling DRob a better winner than Kobe because 5 rings don't lie, but this is also an assumption that we're starting this hypothetical franchise from today onward, which means Kobe would be just another 6'6" shooting guard in the league, albeit one who would make his defense look foolish practically night in, night out.
All while Robinson would be a 7'0" center with the best footwork in the modern era.

This, David Robinson would be a nasty mismatch for any "Center" today, he would abuse this small ball era....

B'Ball is built for Center to DOMINATE. Perimeter talent is unproven at Pro level unless you are talking about Gawdbe. Cant risk it with MJ, rather have Kobe.

So Howard's game is more like David's because of the muscles? Howard's game is around the rim overpowering people. David's game was more finesse.

Kobe BIGGER CHOKER as he lost series after going up 3-1.
Kobe BIGGER CHOKER for not showing up in Game 7 of Suns series.

Where is Kobe's consistency here?
Lol dude never in his career had a worse team than Kobe in 07. If anything, more people would have Rodman over Pau Gasol so when was Roberson excuse of losing in the first round in 94?
