Might crack the top 10? Really? Who edges him out, Oscar Rob? Not saying there's not a legitimate argument behind it but just asking. Haven't seen the old "Kobe's not even top 10!" argument since around 08-09. Well maybe I have, but I usually don't pay much attention to it. I don't see how anyone could rank Kobe outside the top 10. Is it because he shot 45% his whole career? Is it because he's "an overrated chucker?"
And RoundMound, had to sneak a little Kobe jab in there huh?
Besides all of that, this is a great share. To be that athletically gifted and skilled is one hell of a blessing. Getting beat up on the perimeter and completely dominating all competition, a true competitor with a heart of a lion. When you watch clips of Michael, there is no doubt in your mind that he's the GOAT. Footwork, Body-Control, Post-game, midrange, etc. Michael gave you everything. Great clips man, great clips.
