Kobe edging West by a meager 3-vote margin for 2nd place. Do you agree with the list? Any snubs?
If anything, the situation in the SG position is as stable as anywhere else: Jordan, West and Kobe would clearly be the top 3 SG's ever, but it puzzles me that Kobe beat West. When you ask NBA experts to call their 10 GOAT players, West's name will still be heard quite more often than Kobe's. Now, it's a different story (although it seems Kobe got more 9's among younger people, including Jon Barry, J.Hill, Mark Jackson, etc). So, the margin Kobe-West being "meager" not only isn't a surprise to me, but it would be the worst case scenario for West's positioning. For me, it should be more like:
instead of 200-167-170
Kobe is a raper who just happens to be good at b-ball.
Not really. Shaq and AI were. And it's rapp
er, not raper...
