Yes sir. 4 winnable games ahead until we play Cleveland again. Chicago sliding helps a lot also.

YouTube is loaded with Kobe videos with two decades worth of material.

He won 5 titles with the most prestigious franchise in the sport.

He's going to have two jersey numbers retired, and a statue.

There is ZERO chance of him being forgotten or eroded over time.

Using David, Malone, Moses etc is just dumb. They played in a tape delayed era and pre internet era. In nothing markets to boot.

What happened to Kyle korver?


I think his obvious flaw that his always had if finally truly showing which is that he can't create his own shot. I've believed that was bound to catch up to him eventually because at some point Jeff's and Dennis's play and creating the shoot for him won't always work. Plus after going cold for a while he just seems to like the confidence that he had last season.
Very impressive that he peaked at 34, I think his age had a part in not being able to keep up his level of production

That has played a role without a doubt. Him peaking later in his career is kind of a double edged sword. Positive for him he can still play in the NBA and contribute at an older age but (and this is the negative) peaking so late means its very unlikely you can play at a similar level like that for a 3-5 more years like someone that peaks at 26-30. His season last season was pretty much a shooting star.

Yeah this is true but recent greats have idolized players like Erving, Moses, Thomas, Robinson, Malone, Pippen, Ewing.

Granted some of those players don't have rings but they have a lot other accolades but still don't get mentioned a lot in all time goat conversations the further we get from their playing careers.

Dr. J gets brought up all the time. Whenever the dunk contest comes up. Even when MJ comes up people always say Dr. J was the father of that style. Malone still gets brought up in greatest PF discussions. Look at Reggie Miller, when people talk about Steph being the best shooter ever his name comes up. Kobe has had a bigger impact than all of dudes you named except DR. J. Ultimately players legacies are judged by how younger players view them and all these younger players look up to him.

Nah so fast

we has two score game in the Chesapeake Energy Arena

I forgot that Monta Ellis played for the Pacers. Weird. PG13 has got to want more help, right? Maybe?

The idea that Kobe is going to be forgotten as a basketball player is so outright ludicrous that I can't believe people are even entertaining it by arguing about it.

Yes Kobe will not be forgetten and that's not what I meant at all but I think he may move down these collective lists like a Julius Erving.

When I was younger, Erving was getting so much love and probably was high up these collective lists. Whenever those NBA Films would come on he was always mentioned. Now when we talk about top 10-15 all time players he's rarely mentioned. He's been replaced by likes of Jordan, Duncan, Shaq, Hakeem, LeBron, Kobe for whatever reasons.

Recency bias is real unless you have sone overwhelming dominance that factors in.

You can't expect dudes to be up there with Steph, KD, Russ, Davis, etc in the post LeBum MVP era.

Soon. :Nthat

Think about it: The Celtics might make it to the conference finals and still win the Ben Simmons lottery
