I think Kobe Bryant is one of the most overated players in nba history . First of all kobe bryant never had the imediate impact like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal, and Wilt Chamberlain. He did not win the rookie of the year like those guys. He had to ride the bend for his first two years

KOBE is not overrated, actually for the 1st half of his career he is grossly underrated

1. He did bring immediate impact the NBA by showing everyone that even if MJ leaves and retires there is already a
HEIR to MJ's Throne as the face of the NBA, this kept casual fans still watch the NBA, they are interested if KOBE, like
Vince, Iverson or Mcgrady can take the Throne that MJ will vacate. He is already very popular during his High School days
If you are talking about immediate impact as immediately rise to popularity then KOBE did have an impact no question about that.

2. Allen Iverson is the 1996-1997 Rookie of the year another once in a generation player like KOBE, Iverson just played more minutes than KOBE because the LAKERS that time is a playoffs team unlike the Sixers who have 22-60 win-loss record.

3. At the start of the 1996-1997 season Kobe is coming of the bench still he scoring 7.1 PPG playing just 15.5 minutes per game, in his sophomore year KOBE did play off the bench but he is the runner up for the sixth man of the year award.
You can't just discount the fact that Kobe thrive in a team that is playing in the playoffs while he is still a teenager.
