Is Kobe Bryant a top 10 player of all time?

Asked by: KJB
  • Top 10 of all time without a doubt

    Kobe Bean Bryant is 4th all time in scoring trailing only 3 people: Michael Jordan who is the Greatest of all time, Karl Malone, and Wilt Chamberlain. Kobe is the closest thing to Michael Jordan with his competitive nature, his ability to seal the deal, and get the job done NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES. His skillset mixed with his ability to shoot the ball as well as get to the basket makes him a top ten player. His moves (Which he stole from Michael Jordan) makes him appear fast and quick; when in reality it is all footwork. Sure Kobe only has one MVP, 2 Finals MVP, 2 rings without Shaq, but his game and game-closing ability cannot be ignored which makes him top 10 EASILY.

    BTW my top ten:
    Michael Jordan
    Magic Johnson
    Larry Bird
    Bill Russell
    Kobe Bryant
    Wilt Chamberlain
    Oscar Robertson
    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
    Hakkeem Olajuwon
    Tim Duncan

  • No , I believe there are 11 players that better than him , and I also believe he is overrated.

    Success wise , Kobe would be top 10 , but let's compare him to the other 11. MJ , not only is he better offensively since he won 8 more scoring titles , but also won DPOY. Also their stats maybe farthere apart than assumed. For example , Jordan avgs 30 6 and 5 , while Kobe averages 25 5 5. See the difference? Not to mention Jordan won 6 MVPS , and 6 Finals MVPS in 15 years. While Kobe won 1 MVP , and only 2 Finals MVPS in 18 years.

Also , he is not better than Bird , since Bird can do , such as rebounding , Bird averages twice as much rebounds as Kobe , and 1 more ast. However , Larry Bird is known as a pure shooter that can shoot 3's amazingly , and shoots 90% from the free throw line. Larry's fg% is about 50% , while Kobe's is 45%.
