Chris Bosh is ahead of Kobe Bryant in rankings. What rankings you might ask? ESPN NBA Player Rankings. Bosh is listed 24 as well for Bryant his listed 25. This is “BLASPHEMOUS” as Stephen A. Smith would say. Really? 25th?
I personally would have put Bryant easily no debate in top 10. The media often fuels Bryant so why do they want to spark a fire? Last season, Kobe Bryant finished sixth in the NBA Rank.
Maybe ESPN is thinking Bryant wont be the same because he is coming back from an Achilles injury he suffered last season. Despite being 35 Bryant averaged 27.3 points and 5.6 assists a game in 78 appearances last season.
He was also voted to the All-Star game again.With Bryant’s hard work and determination we know “Vino” will be motivated to prove his doubters wrong. ESPN also predicted the Los Angeles Lakers would finish 12th in the Western Conference in the upcoming NBA season. Bryant is playing in his 17th NBA season.
Also with 5 rings Bryant hopes to catch one of the greats in basketball Michael Jordan in rings with 6. With a healthy team this season the Lakers should be able to make the playoffs this season in my opinion. Chemistry has to click early for them as well.
