kobe's first and last points
man. kobe won't be in the league next year. this feels weird
what a random and arbitrary rule.
I'm sure there are some guys who are really run to play with but are shitty basketball players, guess they're up there waiting for the hall of fame to call?
He probably doesn't crack my top 10, either, but Kobe might be the best 1-on-1 player ever. He had one of the greatest scoring seasons ever (35 ppg, which is 4th behind Wilt's 50 ppg, MJ's 37 ppg, and Rick Barry's 35.5 ppg). Obviously it's a team game and he probably could have had more rings had he been more willing to defer to his teammates, but it can also be argued that he single-handedly won a lot of important games for the Lakers.
