Where's Stephen A. Smith to come in here and give us his "that is SO DISRESPECTFUL!" cause it is. Some comments exposing biasness & haterade mode:

3. Who's the most overrated shooting guard in the NBA?
 
Huq: Kobe Bryant. Few have ever worked harder and maybe none have ever been more skilled. But despite his greatness, Bryant also is one of the most overrated players of all time. He chucks bad shots and isn't nearly as clutch as the narrative poses. He has pushed two future Hall of Famers out the door and hasn't won much when not flanked by elite "big" talent.

Line that I bolded pissed me off the most.

Well one is Shaq (although ultimately LAL went with the younger guard over the aging soon to be past prime Shaq asking a max deal)....

 

who's the other HOF big he has pushed out, Malone?

I honestly think if Brandon Roy had not been so severely injured throughout his career he would give Harden a run for his money as one of the top Shooting Guards but to say Harden is better than Kobe is disrespectful to the game of basketball.

I love how they act like Kobe's the only superstar that's won a championship with another hall of famer on his team.

Yeh exactly, if they want to use this logic then Lebron James is the most overrated player of all time. Never won Jack without Wade and Bosh.

Well they don't want to.

They say that Michael has never lost in the finals and Kobe did so it removes him from the discussion.  Yet LeBron is 2-2 in the finals and they never bring it up when debating him and Jordan.

Selective memory.

At this point would still take Kobe. I can understand people picking Harden being younger and all but the reasons they listed about kobe is just disrespectful. 34 dropping better numbers then the young gun you want to name the best sg in the leagure? Please tell me how harden is better? In 2 or 3 years yea, he might be better this year considering how kobe comes back from this injury and how Harden grows, but as of right now off of last season Kobe is still the number one sg.

 

Hey keep spewing doubt in his face Kobe could use some more motivation to come back stronger when his recovery is already shattering the time table.


All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Youth doesnt = success.


All Harden's potential means diddly if he keeps shrinking when his team needs him the most.

I take it harden doesn't chuck shots up lol. I've seen dude take more pull up threes than anyone in recent memory. Harden can't out smart you. He can't attack your weaknesses yet. Can he be great. Sure. But not so fast

People forget that teams plan those defensive effort around stopping Kobe. He rarely sees open shots, all of his scoring opportunities are contested. I honestly can't think of another NBA player who can score at Kobe's rate with the same amount of defensive pressure on them.

Someone on the comments actually put Beal ahead of Kobe, with KB being #5 lol. 

 

Until someone proves otherwise, Kobe is still the #1 shooting guard in the league.  Followed by Harden, then Wade.
