Has this youthful player really played more playoff games than all the Nuggets players did all together?

What he is still able to do with so much mileage on his body is incredible.

^ Yeah, he doesn't get as much credit, praise, or respect as he deserves, especially from all the media people.

It's pretty incredible how relevant and great he's been for as long as he's been. Most players drop off condierably. I.e Grant Hill (injuries, I know) Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, A.I., but Kobe's still truckin' along as one of the greatest in the league. :rock:

Kobe has smartened up since his slump. Instead of dribbling for most of his shots he's posting up. Moving off screens and that's giving him energy to take those isolation shots.

He looks like 98 Jordan right now

Yeah that stuck out in my mind during the game last night. Especially when he did that shoulder bump and pushoff on Corey Brewer then nailed the jumpshots...shades of MJ and Bryon Russell. Only Superstars get away with that.

Nope. Jordan a year older at 34 shot 47% avg. 29 pts. Kobe 43% avg. 28. Plus Jordan was a better defender then too.

Defenses are much more difficult now compared to Jordan's era..
