Re: Kobe's legacy if Lakers don't make playoffs?
Kind of. He's still a top 10 player to me, and before this season I had him at #10 but thinking that maybe he should be ranked ahead of Hakeem and Duncan due to his longevity, and I thought eventually he would be ranked ahead of Hakeem, Duncan, Shaq, Bird, and/or Wilt withat least his longevity, but I don't know anymore. Its always been a little questionable about how much credit he deserves for his titles, especially his first 3, and how much should be attributed to his coach and the talent around him. He obviously hasn't played bad, but his leadership has definitely been questionable this year with the way things are so the credit he deserves for his titles is probably more questionable now to me.
