Default Single player with the most devoted fans?

Who do you guys think is the single individual player that has the most devoted fans? Not necessarily the MOST fans in terms of number. But fans that are just diehard, fight for him like he's the Pope, kind of fans. I'm gonna go with Kobe Bryant. Sure a lot of people hate him, but the people that love him, love him to death. What are your thoughts? Most diehard fans are for teams. However, I've never come across these kinds of diehard fans for an individual. Now, I ask you. Are they the world's greatest fans?

There was a time not too long ago where it would have been VC. I hope the move to Jersey was worth it for him.

I'm going to say Kobe Bryant because that is the answer to all of your threads.

I dunno. Most people just loved watching him play because of his creativity and ridiculous dunks. But I don't recall a lot of die-hard VC fans, where they'd just say he's the greatest ever.

This thread isn't a Kobe thread. It's answering who you think has the most devoted fans. I've made a total of 2 Kobe threads since I've been here.

They my not have said he was the greatest ever but they always did fight for him just like in the topic description. If you don't recall a lot of die hard VC fans when he was in Toronto, then you haven't been following the NBA very long.

Mine is obviously Brandon Roy, LaMarcus Aldridge, or Oden but they're too young in the league.

I'd have to say either Kobe, Shaq, or Duncan.

I'd have to say Kobe Bryant. No matter what he does, he can do no wrong their (his fans)eyes.

Its not just loyalty but approaching blind loyalty at times.
