LakeShow, you appear to accept/ agree with my criteria. Take another look at the one I labeled "character". Do you think Kobe fits that one in his prime? Now?

I had forgotten about that great game he had against the Pacers, congrats for digging that up. Maybe I should go find a few links to issues about his character, or should we just forget those untidy incidents because he is such an incredible scorer?

Kobe has a winning character. All he cares about is winning. His character has brought the Lakers 5 rings. He is an incredible player,top 5 of all time, not just an incredible scorer.

Harden can't touch Kobe. Not now and never career-wise.

Kobe > Harden again

^I believe that you have equated winning with good character. So by that logic then Dennis Rodman with his 5 championships is a high character guy, correct?

Rodman had enough character to win... Thats all I care about as well, but Rodman's was as a role player( albeit a special level of role player)

^Rodman certainly was/ is a "character" but as far as a good character guy, um ... no.

If the character results in wins like Kobes than it is a good character to start an nba franchise with. Pretty easy to understand
