Kobe Bryant Is The Best NBA Player Of All-Time
by Sean Evan Sokol
Kobe Bryant Dunking
Kobe Bryant is the best NBA player of all time. Here's why...
He has 12 NBA All-Star game apperances.
5 NBA Championship rings.
Two NBA Finals MVP awards.
1 NBA MVP award.
All-NBA First and Second team awards for all his years.
He scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors.
It doesn't seem like much but he should have won the NBA MVP Award in 2006-07 and 2005-06 - he averaged 35.4 points a game and 32.9 points a game in those seasons. He didn't win it because his team had a bad record.
I think he's better than Michael Jordan because back then there was only man to man defense and no zone defense...so who is going to guard Kobe one on one besides Shane Battier? There aren't many defenders who can guard him one on one, without the help of a zone defense.
I think he's better than Kareem because Kareem was not an average big man. With his size advantage back then he only had to use a hook shot to score most of his points.
Lebron James is 2 inches taller than Kobe, but he hasn't developed a consistent midrange jump shot and can only drive to the basket.
This is is why I feel Kobe Bryant
is the greatest NBA player that has ever played the game.
