This article will focus on picking out the dream supporting cast for Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant. By dream, I mean players who would mesh well with Kobe on the court. Therefore, some of the game’s best players will not be found in the following slides. Sorry, LeBron.
While writing out these respective slides, I imagined Kobe giving each one the Black Mamba seal of approval. That has to count for something, right?
Before we can begin looking at which players I selected, I want to share some information regarding the criteria for selecting the players I did.
1. No current or former teammates.
2. No retired players.
3. Remember, the players I chose are not necessarily the best at their respective position, but star players who would mesh well with Kobe and his skill set.
4. The bench players are not stars (this isn’t an All-Star team). The chosen players are your traditional reserve/role player types, with the exception of my choice for backup center.
I chose four fellow starters to play alongside Kobe, in addition to five reserves to fill each position.
