Howard is the best defensive player in the league. On the offensive end he cann single handedly generate double digits a night just on FT's and offensive rebounds without a single play put through him. He is without any doubt, the best center in the NBA. period.

Kobe takes 5 shots more a night than any other player in the league. His FG% is dismal, he doesn't involve his bigmen and then blames everyone around him. On top of that, if you watched the OKC series, 4 games in he was shooting something like 25% in the 4th quarter including 2 games he flat out shot them out of the game. (Remember his 2 of 10 night in the 4th where they went from up 8 to a loss in the last 7 minutes or so?)

Kobe has aged and hasn't adjusted his game. Basically, he's gone Iverson and a player shooting that much, that badly isn't going in my top 10.

That's not to say he couldn't play at a top 5 level, it's that he refuses to at this stage of his career. He hasn't learned to adjust to his aging.

stopped reading at "the best center in the nba"
compared to who... compared to andrew bogut.. compared to kendrick perkins. saying dwight howard is the best center is like saying ginobili is 'without any doubt the best argentinian player in the league'.. compared to what other argentinians. dwight's 'effectiveness' disappears in late game situations when the game is close.
then comparing kobe to iverson.. lol smh.. hasnt adjusted his game? lol log off for 1 week. his fg % is like 2 percentage points below his career average. he is in his 17th year in the league scoring 30 a game.

but please tell me how much more you'd rather have dwight in the game with the ball than kobe during crunch time.

1. sure, point out the thunder series and ignore dwight howards non existent clutch play his entire career
2. "i hate kobe more than jews and palestinians hate each other " is what i said in my first post.
3. what the hell is a 'becky fan'... who talks like that lol smh
4. not wasting another minute typing to you but more importantly i will not sit here arguing in favor of kobe bryant. i feel like i need to take a shower after what i've done. i may never forgive myself.
