So my boy Arthur Triche and I were contemplating worldwide talk that Kobe is now Top 5 in NBA history. So is Kobe better than MJ, Bird, Magic, Wilt, Dr. J, Kareem, Havlicek, The Mailman, Elgin Baylor, Jerry West, Hakeem, Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, Duncan, Shaq, Mikan, Cousy, Moses Malone, Stockton, KG, Ewing, David Robinson, Barkley, Isiah and Drexler, Earl the Pearl, Bill Walton, Willis Reed, Iverson, Rick Barry, Petit, Dominique? How many of these guys is he better than? Are we missing another challenger?
