not great


pretty small league compared to the NBA...

there were only 84 players in the league at the time of the merger

a total of 112 players played games that year, but some were part time players that went to the NBA earlier, 7 teams which finished the season (there were 9 teams that started the season, 10 in the previous years, up to 11 in league history); some of the teams folded because teams knew they wouldn't be around after the inevitable merger

there were 238 players in the NBA that season, 18 teams total

well think of it like this

say i make up a league called elite canadian basketball


make 10 teams. have 10 allstar level players... steal a few from the nba even

kobe leads a team in the ECB to a few championships... then comes back to the nba

even if my little 10 team 80 player league had a few great players and some good players... nobody is gonna say


Kobe = 7 rings > jordan 6 rings


right?

because you can only compare what 1 guy did in the nba+ some made up league to another guy who played only in the nba

it wouldnt be fair to rate what a player did in an inferior lesser league

He's not the GOAT, but the MVP award really isn't that important. It's a strictly subjective award.

The world is still laughing, both at that prediction and at Mark Jackson.

Yes, the world is still laughing


I also like the comment about MVPs... Kobe has been in the league how many years? How many MVPs does he have?

And he has the MVPs to back that claim up. One in 16 years by an alleged "Top 2" is pathetic as hell.

Kobe has no shot at being the GOAT. Not even hating. Fairly or unfairly MJ has cemented himself as the GOAT. If guy's like Kareem, Wilt, Russel, Magic etc. who have had similar carers\stats\achievements etc. yet still don't measure up in the consensus vs Jordan than a guy like Kobe has literally no chance.

I'm not a fan of Kobe but he's a great player. One of the best of All-Time. Simply a tier below GOAT candidate.

With the way basketball players are rated, it's kinda important. Not the end all be all but still needed. Not to say that makes it true but the consensus greatest basketball player of All-Time will have an MVP award, more than one probably. When looking at it like Derrick Rose vs Kobe, or Steve Nash vs Shaq? Than ya it looks pretty stupid.

I'd bet my life the guy who surpasses Jordan will be a multiple time MVP.
