Night in and night out, Kobe gives his 100 percent even playing through pain and I found an article that explained it all -> http://www.sportshubla.com/2008/03/08/the-mvp-race-its-kobe-over-king-james-and-heres-why/
Charles Barkley has already said it so many times, you hear it in your sleep. And now Lebron has said it too. Kobe is the best player in the game. If you ask the 360 active NBA players who the best and most complete all-around player is, I don’t think it’s exaggerating to say at least 250 and possibly 300 would say Kobe, not including Ray Allen and Raja Bell, of course. And this is a pure guess, but I have a feeling that some of the Kobe dissenters just don’t like him because he’s such a cold-case killer on the court.
