I honestly dont think Kobe will be among the top 5 in 4 years. Thats a lot of wearing down on his body by that point. He'll be good, but not one of the BEST in the league. Those knees are wearing thin.
1. O.J. Mayo
2. Brandon Roy
3. Dwayne Wade
4. Kobe Bryant
5. Eric Gordon
OJ Mayo is a undersized volume shooter. Good luck proving to anyone that is better than a SG who passes as well he scores, a willy vet who does everything, and an aging all star whose experience makes him vital on an excellent team.
With the way Wade plays(constant rim attacking), I can't see him being top 5 in 4 years honestly. He's already 27 and will be 31 in 4 years.
Kobe might be, but I don't think he'll be on a top 5 list either, unless someone goes by the reputation he has. He'll be 35 in 4 years.
DeRozen, Gordon, Mayo, Roy and Monta Ellis will be the 5 in no particular order.
Besides last names and both being solid undersized shooters, I don't really see many similarities between the two.
Wade's already showing he can expand his game. His 3pt shot is better than it's ever been, and he's shooting it more than he ever has. When his athleticism goes I believe Wade will still be smart enough to draw contact, and he already has a nice mid-range game with an improving 3pt shot.
Wade will still be a top SG in 4 years, with or without the explosiveness he has now. He'll adapt.
