What is your honest opinion of the greatest basketball player alive:Kobe Bryant?

He is too good, isn't he? People are just so jealous of his God-given talent that they will do anything to ruin him.

    Last I checked Michael Jordan was still the MAN on and off the B Ball court, And I do think that Jordan Accomplished more than Kobe...endorsements, championships, individual awards, teams awards, olympics, and also respect among his peers than Kobe.

    Wake up and smell the Air Jordans , Kobe is far from the greatest. Talented but not the best

    Long live the Michael Air Jordan.

    He is a little bit of a better shooter then Jordan though his shooting % doesn't reflect it because Jordan had bigger hands thus enabling him a lot of easy baskets around the hoop. Jordan had better hops and always led the NBA in steals but Kobe is probably a better pure scorer and can still dunk on a Dominique Wilkins level and anyone who thinks that is not true needs to watch Wilkins dunk contest highlights again. Kobe has done everyone of those dunks at some point in his career during a game. I will say that I don't belive Kobe is a ball hog but I do beleive he gets this criticism because he has poor shot selection sometimes. At times he will shoot when he shouldn't and at other times he will pass when he should take it himself. For example when he had 58 last night and they were down 2 in triple overtime and he was single covered he passed to Smush Parker and the result was 0 points. At other times he will miss 3 in a row and then go for 4 in a row when it's like th 2nd quarter tied game with 7 minutes left. I think he should lead the NBA in scoring but beleive if he improved his shot selection a little he would get a little less criticism but some people will still hate. Overall I honestly believe he is the 2nd best guard ever and is tied with a coulple of other players for the 2nd best ever most of which are centers. He has the potential to go down as the best ever if he improves his shot selection and shoots more turn around jumpers in the post and less 50 footers with 20 seconds left on the shot clock.

    Plz. Hes not the greatest player alive or did lebron and Wade and Nash all suddenly just die. He's a incredible talent, but a ball hog and he fails as a human being. Like T.O. I have no ambitons to "ruin" him. I dont think hes a rapist, cause that hoe was a skank lol, but he is just a horrible person. Oh and lebron and wade could put up those type of numbers if they took the shot no matter where they are or whose open.

    Wilt Chamberlain is the best ever. Look at the record books. It practically pays homage to him. Some will say Michael Jordan. He is a talented athletic player. However, the refs were too intimidated to call a foul on him and on the incredibly rare occasions that they do, Jordan will act like a crybaby about it. On the other side, if players went as far as to lay a hand on him, they would be called for a foul. The NBA changed the rules to make it harder for Wilt to dominate but, changed the rules to make it easier for Jordan. Advantage Chamberlain.

    Kobe is by no means the greatest basketball player alive. He couldn't lace Jordan's sneakers. He's a ball hog and one of the most selfish players on the court. He doesn't know how to be part of a team. CAT

    Yes, I agree with you that he is one of many good shooters. He doesn't shoot that well if he is guarded by certain other players.

    He hogs the ball to much and likes to make a one man show. He is good when he plays team basketball.

    Why do you think Shaq wanted away from him?

    Yes all talents are God given. What matters is how wisely we use our talents.
