    Kills me that ppl talking comperson between Lebron and Jordan like Kobe wasn’t even exist and Kobe by far better player then Lebron kobes foot work was just a beautiful thing to watch Kb24 for life

  14. Fitz says:

    Kobe is a gunner

  15. Drift Gangsta says:

    probably the last real superstar that is not overhyped by sponsors and the nba.

  16. Mike says:

    The difference from one player to the next is how that individual transcend the game. Examples are Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, Oscar Robertson, Julius Erving, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and Lebron James. They lay the ground work for others to immolate i.e. KObe like Mike, Shaq like Wilt and etc., but Kobe’s mastery of the game is in his work ethic and knowledge he gets my vote for HOF.>>
