I've got news for you...Kobe would be borderline top 10 on a lot of people's list if they did rank guards and bigs separately.

Quote:
people will just rank mostly centers over guards because they think rebounding is part of defense and it makes them a better defender than a guard


Quote:
also with blocks. when its actually bad defense to try and block an outside shooter

and steals are from playing mostly passing lanes as a roamer


Quote:
guys who were great on both ends should get more credit than role players who used 100% energy on defense.


Quote:
in his prime he was a lock down stopper. and its way harder to defend and score at the same time


Quote:
and defensive teams should count

for instance. one person ranked kobe as not a top 10 defensive guard all time. and hes got the most all defensive 1st teams in nba history
