Best 2nd option alongside Tony Parker? Sure. Heck, I'll even crown him the best 2nd option in the league, but Kobe having this gigantic advantage depth wise...being on the deepest team in the league is a complete myth.
The biggest difference between the teams Kobe faced in the playoffs, is KOBE. Everything else is marginal at best between the rosters.
Is it so hard to give the man credit, ever?
