Kobe Bryant Scouting Report: Top level superstar who can score any way he wants. Extremely athletic, thrilling dunker with amazing leap and quickness... Often compared to Michael Jordan, though not considered quite as unstoppable... Extremely good defender... Sometimes called selfish, as Kobe often shoots with defenders right around him as teammates watch... More coming soon.
