And this is comparing him to people like Lebron, D wade, Iverson, Kode, D rose, Chris Paul and many others.

Kobe's athleticism is very average in my opinion.
Doesn't matter what you think about Kobe's athelticism. You guys always try to find a way to tear kobe down.

He has five rings. He's not trying to show the league how fast he his. He is just trying to win another championship before he retires and break some scoring records. That's it.

Kobe is aging these days. Not as quick as he used to be.

But overall I would say throughout this career his athleticism has been nothing short of superb.

Gotta agree with Black Jack on this one. I don't care for Kobe, but there's no disputing his physical abilities.

I'm not a Kobe hater. I think he's one of the all-time greater. Some people like that think he's the greatest of all time....hell no. Athletically, he's only average tho. When he was in his early 20's maybe, but he doesn't win because he's athletic, he wins because he's, and take alot of shots. LOL. But this this is about athleticism and kobe.doesn't rank very high. Jordan as voted the quickest in the league at 33 and that after Kobe, iverson, and many others joined the league. I see why people rarely blocked jordans shots. Because he doesn't just stand there waiting for the ball, and he got ridiculous air on his jump shots. The only thing people could do was face guard him.

I just read that Allen Iverson is broke. He owes almost a million to a jeweler and had his bank accounts seized. I like AI, I thought he was what he was but he represented the sport well. I don't expect athletes to be choir boys or brain surgeons. He carried the Sixers at times. But what a dummy.
