He's clearly the 3rd best now at 24. He'll be in prime at 28 then. I'm not kidding you, he'll be best or second best. Oneof the smartest too I might add because he finished school.

Did you have the same thought on MJ before he played his last 4years?

Dwyane Wade
Brandon Roy
Kobe Bryant
OJ Mayo
Kevin Martin

Dwyane will be at the peak of his prime, Roy will just be in the middle of his. Kobe will be on the downside of his career, but still will be productive and more likely on a winning team. OJ will just be hitting his prime years and Kevin can go as far as 2-3 but it depends on his surrounding cast and health.

True, Jordan at 35 was still the best player in the game. Therefore its not farfetched that a 34 year old Kobe will be ONE OF the top players in the game, although unlike Jordan, I don't think he will be THE TOP player.

1. Roy (28) - He would be in his prime and if he keeps his current level of gameplay I believe he would be considered the best.
2. Wade (31) - He would be a little older than current Kobe, so I believe he will still be on a high level but will have lost some of his athleticism.
3. Kobe Bryant (34) - His skillset and his improving post game would keep him on a competitive level.
4. Monta Ellis (27) - He should be right in his athletic prime and should be the #1 option on his team.
5. Kevin Martin (30) - He should be able to improve his play as long as he improves his Mid Range FG%

Consolation. O.J. Mayo - He will only be 25 ,so he would be entering his prime. I would say he has a chance of being #4-5 if any injuries occur or those two stop improving now.
