When #NBArank called Kobe Bryant the 25th best player in the NBA, Twitter called Amin Elhassan a whole bunch of nasty things.

Kobe Bryant just said anyone who thinks he's 25th best player in the world needs drug testing

 

I know you’re shocked, but Bryant doesn’t agree w/t rank. Said it’s “silly,” but he accepts the challenge.” Believes he’ll overcome injury.

 

Motivation.

Kobe barely played last year, he's older and is coming off of two catastrophic injuries.  You guys are insane.  You care WAY too much about this superficial b.s..  The fact that you follow it, post about it, complain about it and continue to go back proves that ESPN is doing their job perfectly.

 

These rankings are done for what the player is now, not what they've done before.

Truth is only one that knows what Kobe is now is Kobe himself, and even he wants to see how far he'll take it.  

But ESPN ranked the top 10 shooting guards and Demar Derozan was nowhere to be found but Dion Waiters was.  

They are pretty much 'trap' articles.  The only way you miss putting Demar Derozan in the top 10 shooting guards in the league is if you're intentionally leaving people out to create a trap story.  In that case they decided to leave Kobe out and created the list, and made themselves look more idiotic by not putting Derozan. 

At that point you see ESPN for what it is,  trap articles, or you don't.

I just looked it up.  We finished 14th, only better than the Jazz in wins.

 

For the record, I dont agree with ESPN's ranking of Kobe at 25, but he also does not deserve to be in the top 10 until he plays at a high level for a sustained period.
