How many MVPS - Probably only the 1. Maybe a 2nd.
How many pts will he finish with - No idea.
How many total championships - He could very well get another 1 or 2.
Will he have both jerseys retired? - Thats a good question. No doubt they will retire both jersey's i assume.

At least #8

WILL HE EVER GET THE RESPECT AND CREDIT HE DESERVES ( BONUS QUESTION) - By some, but many wont give him his due.

He definitely won't go down as the greatest ever.

His legacy will just be NBA legend.

How can you rank a player that's still accruing stats?

There won't be an accurate place in history for him until its all said and done.

For now, enjoy the ride and watch the Lakers make history - this year.

i thnk he will definetely have both jerseys retired, he got 3 rings and 81 in #8 so thats a done deal. He gotta MVP in #24 and if he adds a title (or two) and continues to be Kobe, he will be the first with two jerseys retired

I'd say at either 8, 9, or 10th of all-time, the thing is he still probably has 5 years left, and he has a good chance to retire over Magic as the greatest of all-time. Sorry Jordan fans, but Jordan is 6th on my list.

I'd plow Vanessa Bryant.

I don't see what's wrong with my opinion, of course everybody will have something different.
1.Magic
2.Bird
3.Russell
4.Wilt
5.Kareem
6.Jordan
7.Big O
8.Kobe
9.Duncan
10.Dr.J

I'd plow Vanessa Bryant.

Lol, it's similar, but to me.. Dr.J was the FIRST superstar of the NBA, and Duncan is arguably to me the greatest PF in history..

This is the key, Kobe is just 30, and he's got a chance to go down as #1, he might not make it, but he's got the chance, and him still playing is KEY.

I'd plow Vanessa Bryant.

How is Kobe above Shaq when Shaq's been in 2 more finales and won one more ring than him?
Gooden>> Lamar Odom. Mo Williams>> Ray Allen>> Gasol. Nene= Gasol.

When it comes to Kobe hasn't won without Shaq..

has Shaq ever won a ring without a premier shooting guard?

I'd plow Vanessa Bryant.

Well actually, Shaq has been in only one more Finals, not two. But besides the point, Shaq should still be ahead of Kobe at this point.

Accomplishments outside of championships make Kobe a better player than Shaq.

Plus his all-around game is better than than Shaq's, his consistency of work on and off the court (including departments other than the glamour ones - hustle board stuff) is better and his willingness to play with a team.

If the best player is simply counted by rings, then Russell is the best ever. That's simply not true.

Still though, its impossible to place him on some all-time list is impossible when he's still playing.

Shaq's appearances- 5
Kobe's appearances- 4

Yeh, that's pretty much what I said. Except it's:
Shaq: 6
Kobe: 5
