I have been saying it every since the first time i seen Kobe Bryant playing in High School that his influence in almost every way had to be MJ, so Kobe being influenced by the great one and growing up in a city that has produced the likes of Wilt Chamberlain,Rasheed Wallace,Bo Kimble, Hank Gathers the list goes on but the pedigree is second to none. Kobe Bryant has had his ups and downs during the course of his career, but make no mistake about it i dont think anything can detour him from what he has wanted to accomplish since being a kid including troubles with the Law,Shaq,Karl Malone or Divorce.The things that athletes face during the first few years in the NBA can make or break careers depending on the goals and personality of the individual, but then you have Kobe who has done nothing but win on all levels so whats next?. I would have to say if you have set the bar that high for yourself then being the G.O.A.T has to be in the shuffle, so has he accomplished that? if not how much more does he have to do? or will this be something that always remains in the back pocket of one Mr.Michael Jordan? who recently said that the only player that deserved the credit and put in the work to be compared was Kobe Bryant.
