Default Kobe has the GOAT work ethic

People say Jordan has the best work ethic, but he is also top five in terms of God given physical talent. So it isn't impressive that he is GOAT. Kobe on the other hand is not in the top 50 in terms of physical talent. Even guys like T MAC and Vince Carter are more physically gifted than him. Kobe is basically equal to JR Smith in terms of physical talent, but his work ethic has propelled him to 11
All NBA 1st teams. The most ever!

Even if Jordan had Shaq's work ethic he would still finish as a top 10 GOAT. If Kobe had Shaq's work ethic he would be out of the NBA after his rookie contract expired.

Mitch Richmond with Pau and Odom would be worse than Mitch Richmond with Tim Hardaway and Chris Mullin. Pau and Odom are in the running for the worst championship #2 and #3 options in NBA history.

For NBA players physical gifts is the most important factor in how good you'll be. Sure you get some dudes who get by on pure talent and are lazy as ****(JR Smith, Mike Beasley), but when your talking about the professional ranks mostly all these dudes workout hard. There is $$$ on the line. Physical gifts is the one thing noone can ever match no matter how hard they work out. This isn't like your local park where if you practice, watch your nutrition, and workout you will be able to dominate just because of that.

Kobe is about equal to JR Smith in terms of physical gifts. Great example bro.

I know. Kobe made himself a champion with a terrible supporting cast (Pau and Odom) even though he is only as physically gifted as JR Smith.

If Dwight won, Hedo and Rashard would have been. Pau and Odom are better

I know but people overate Pau and Odom just to hate on Kobe. Even the GOAT had much better support with Pippen and Rodman. Magic had Kareem and Worthy. Bird had McHale, Parrish, and DJ. Pau and Odom are scrubs compared to those guys.

How is Kobe more physically talented than JR Smith? If they had an NBA Draft combine with young JR and young Kobe they would put up similar numbers.

Compared to those guys? Sure. Relative to the league At the time, Pau and Odom, among the top. Not to mention, Bynum was basically coming of the bench who in 08 before he went down was a solid ass center. Even proved to be so when he got full playing time starting in 2011.

What other championship contenders in '09 and '10 had a better #2 than Pau Gasol?

Bynum was injured in 2009 and 2010 playoffs. He was basically equivalent to Luc Longley. The point I am trying to make is that JR Smith wouldn't win with those guys but Kobe did.
