CBS recently sat down and ranked the shooting guards in the NBA. Kobe headlined at #1…

CBS: Kobe Bryant is often the NBA’s best offensive player, sometimes its best defensive player and always its most feared. Bryant’s ability to make big shots is obvious. But he can shut down the opposing team’s shooting guard, help out on the boards and always draws a double-team on offense.  In reality, the shooting guard list begins at No. 2.

1. Kobe Bryant, L.A. Lakers: He has mastered virtually every aspect of the game except how exactly to fit most effectively into the Lakers’ offense. The question isn’t whether he’s the best two guard in the league. It’s where he’ll go down among the greats.

  • lal

    LBJ is a SF

  • lakrfan4life

    umm..,this does not even need to be stated, its like stating the obvious…

    as for #2) T-Mac, he can be almost half as good as kobe when hes healthy

    **please note, i am not hating on t-mac, half as good as kobe is definitely still really good, kobe is just too good

  • Tim

    Kobe = 3rd greatest alltime behind MJ and Magic, but at the end of his career…who knows

  • KuyaJL

    I don’t Tmac deserves to up there upon the elite guards.

    His inability to lead his team past the first round WITH Yao and a good supporting cast shows that.

    He’s a great offensive talent though.

  • morninwood

    take t mac off that list. it’s lebron

    lebron isn’t a shooting guard,hes a small forward…

  • Sako

    WOW, REALLY!!! THIS WASN’T EXPECTED, CONGRATS KOBE!! WHAT A SURPRISE!!! I’VE ALWAYS THOUGHT TRACY MCGRADY WAS THE BEST SG IN THE LEAGUE, NEVER WOULD’VE EXCEPTED KOBE TO COME OUT ON TOP!

  • de ramos

    Whats New?

  • Ron

    Kobe a top guard? are you sure? im sure theres a misprint…here on easter island off the coast of chile we have a world class player…he used to play for the lakers and then he got bored…but the stuff he can do…none of the other 5 old folks who live on the island can do.
    im sure its a misprint…in the easter island times and easter island post it says smush parker best PG,SG,SF,PF& C…my gran retired when she turned 80 and could not play PG but this dude plays all 5 positions and his opponents are the huge easter island carvings….not seen the playoffs yet but should be out of this world.
