Default Chauncey Billups: "Kobe's the cream of the crop"

Quote:
Said Detroit guard Chauncey Billups: "I've always said from the beginning that I felt like Kobe was the best player in the league. We're around a very elite group right now and you can still see his greatness.

"The same can be said for a few more players but Kobe's the cream of the crop out there."


Interesting...

Great topic. I've never seen any NBA player say Kobe is the best before, this is very shocking news. Thanks for that.

if you look on ESPN video they interview a guy(Brussard) and he says Kobe has clearly distinguished himself as the best player there and every1 on team USA knows it and recognizes it..

Yeah it's been said before. But I still find it interesting that with all that talent on Team USA, that he would say something like that.

As you may be able to tell from my limited posts, I'm not on here that much. So excuse me for not noticing it was posted previously. And if it was posted within an existing thread I really wouldn't have known.

And to the others that are complaining about posts where another player praises Kobe, the thread title should have been a dead giveaway as to what this thread was about. It's really simple... just ignore.

If Chauncey were God, what would that make Kobe?

I think pretty much everyone agreed before this tournament that Kobe was the best player on Team USA, as Nash, Dirk, Duncan and Wade are all not on it currently.
