    Looking back on his career, I'm starting to realize that dude is wildly overrated. He has never elevated his teammates games and he makes some bonehead plays in the pursuit to get his.

    Thoughts?

    Don't get me wrong, he's one of the most talented perimeter players in league history but the MJ comparisons and the way he's ranked ahead of other greats like Magic and even Shaq....I don't see it.

    People crucify players like Iverson and Carmelo when they pretty much have the same impact on the game and flaws as Kobe.

    He has been blessed with one of the most dominant big men ever, the greatest coach ever and in the second half of his career, close to and All-Star starting lineup....take all that away and he's just another All-NBA player, not a top 10 payer ever IMO.

    What makes him individually, that much greater than say....Paul Pierce?

    Fisher has been in the Finals 8 times....and that team also had prime Lamar Odom, Pau Gasol and was coached by the best coach in history.

    They still lost in 6 games and got blown by 39 in the close out game.

    Iverson and Bron lead worse teams to the Finals and people are still quick to point out every flaw in their game and downplay those achievements.

    Yet Kobe gets a pass.

    Hater this, hater that.

    No one saying anything to refute the facts though.

    Is Kobe better than Hakeem to y'all?

    Kobe's rings have blinded a lot of people to his weaknesses as a player and his all time ranking IMO.
