There's almost no conceivable scenario where getting a top 5 player does more damage than good. Ignoring the one fluke season by the Pistons, no NBA title has been won without a top-5 player in the past 15 years.
With Redd as their leader, the Bucks odds at a championship are basically 0%. With Kobe as their leader the odds at least become some positive number.
