The 500 ranking system is stupid b/c its sooooo subjective but even still 25th is just stupid.  I have doubts about him with the achilles but until prove to rank a guy that low after an elite year is just idiotic.  I wouldnt get mad though, ESPN is trolling for reads and hits.

It is working because a lot of talk and comments regarding this, and really only Kobe's ranking is the focal point everyone has. The list itself is irrelevant.

I only watch ESPN for highlights.  Rarely is there anything on there of substance.  Skip and Stephen A are their main guys lol.

It’s nearly 1 a.m. in Shanghai, where we aren’t talking about Kobe’s NBA rank for 2013-14. But no harm in talking, whatever your opinion is.

Kobe's reaction to being told about ESPN's ranking

 




Also, last year, didn't ESPN rank Derrick Rose 5th before the season?

To be fair, Kobe has a negative reputation outside of Laker land. I am just as confused as the rest of you about this massive drop, but remember that BSPN writes for the entire nation, not just Los Angeles. Journalism is only journalism when it's about something people don't want to hear, so thus Kobe is rated low the first chance they get.

If Kobe is being ranked low for coming off an injury, Rondo should be ranked like 40th

Well it's a prediction of what they'll output this year, but ESPN's rankings are still whack as hell. I'm not happy with it, but I'm not mad either. #DominateESPNRankings

Over a ranking? Dude calm down. Who cares what the ranking is? They don't mean anything. Kevin Durant doesn't go on the court thinking, "I'm gonna play like the second best player in the league". Every star player goes out thinking they're the best on the court. ESPN won't change that.

Yeah, that's right. How can he have the audacity especially to work for the Lakers and be that disrespectful to arguably the greatest Laker of all-time? Don't wanna' see his [expletive]in' face on TWCSN anymore. Stop inviting him for good.

 

Besides, this guy is a Boston Celtic & huge Larry Bird fan.

 

Seems rather curious that they also decided to put him at 25 having 24 players listed better than him just like his number. Purely coincidence?
