I don't think Bryant is anywhere near any of these guys, nor is it really questionable. Kobe's not only not in the top tier, he's not even in that next group down.
Bryant's TO ratio (especially for someone who isn't a point guard) and his remarkably poor shooting (and shot selection) keep him from being top 10.
That's one of the silliest things I've seen in a while. Kobe's as good as or better all those guys not named Michael or Magic.
Karl Malone? Without John Stockton Karl Malone is a pretty good NBA player, but not great.
I can't believe I'm defending Kobe, I don't even like him or the Lakers.
