Dirk: “To me, Kobe is the best player in the world right now”

Dirk talked about Kobe and had this to say…

Hoopsworld: You pick one,” challenged Dirk. “They are all great players, that’s why they’re here. To me, Kobe [Bryant] is the best player in the world right now. Just to play with a closer like that, someone that can really take over a game when he wants to at a flip of a switch… He’s really the only guy in the world that can do that when he wants and that’s what makes him the best.”

    that won’t matter, they’ve got myopia! they’ve bought into this LeHype $hit hook, line, and sinker! gotta hand it to the NBA, they know how to market! they’re doing a disservice to both the NBA and to Kobe, but hey, who cares as long as they’ve got another blue chip to count on right? Fcuk you Stern and Stu Jackson!
