The L.A. Lakers might win a title in 2010, and if they do some people may be tempted or inclined to include Kobe Bryant on the same level of greatness as Michael Jordan. Kobe's numbers in no way stack up to Mike's, but he has been on four title teams thus far and Jordan was on six.
Still, most would agree that Jordan was better. Aside from Jordan...
This is a list of players that mostly did not win as many as four titles, and most did not have a Laker team which included Shaq, Gasol, Horry, Fisher, Malone or Payton.
But in their own way, each of the following players were actually individually better than Kobe—and would school him on offense or defense in an embarrasing fashion.
That being written - I rank Kobe as the Number 9 greatest player of all time - and only Magic and Jordan are higher as guards. This is an, 'on any given day' story.
