This Laker star is entering his 12th season, and he's only entered his prime years. Reigning scoring champion last two years running, is in a peculiar situation entering the 2007/2008 season due to numerous trade rumours. One of the most electrifying talents this league has ever seen, and one of the most controversial figures this league has ever produced. The sexual assualt charges, the fued with Shaquille, the constant pampering, ball hogging...he is the current prima donna of the NBA. Kobe is the most complete player in this league, with questionable decision making. He lacks the intangibles to further him on the all-time scale. Aside from all that, Kobe is one of the most dangerous 4th quarter players this league has ever seen. His incredibly quick first step, light fast spin moves and overall creativity makes him impossible to contain one on one. He's the closest thing we have to the great Michael Jordan, and hopefully he can secure his legacy by winning a championship as a #1 option and perhaps a couple of MVP's under his already highly celebrated career.
