Good to see Vlade, he put up decent numbers in a time when centers dominated.

:lol: You're 13? ...No offense, but you're not exactly the age of someone I'd go to for 25 greatest lakers of all time (13 out of our soon to be 61 years...). You were alive during maybe a third of those guys, and that's not even taking into consideration the age you started watching the NBA. Watching highlights or reading stats, or even watching a documentary on those older players and teams gives you a very limited perspective on those guys. IMHO, it just doesn't give you enough authority to judge who's better than who.

kobe's 81 mixed with the rings and accolades gives him the slight edge over west
