Reaction to Kobe Bryant, No. 7:

Kobe has been ranked 7th best player in the NBA by @NBAonESPN. - simply crap...as Mark Jackson would say u r better than that ESPN. Mon Oct 17 23:57:49 via Twitter for iPhone



But putting Kobe at number 7 is disrespectful. He is going to give someone 82 this year just because of that.Wed Oct 19 01:00:28 via Twitter for iPhone



I'm surprised that most of you think Kobe's ranking is fair!!! Kobe 100% is a top 3 NBA player. Yes he's getting older but also wiser.Wed Oct 19 04:58:49 via Echofon



Kobe knows when to get his teammates involved and when to take over. He's the most clutch player and the most feared.That doesn't = number 7.Wed Oct 19 04:59:57 via Echofon



#espn put Kobe at 7? Omg what are they doing? Please don't shake the lion from the tree smh!!!Wed Oct 19 04:56:29 via Echofon
