At the ripe age of 38 I dont see why not. He has already lost most of his athletic ability and relays purely on basketball IQ, skill and intelligence. There really is no end in sight of when the bean will stop dominating.

6 seasons left of the pure greatness, he may no longer be putting people on posters but the footwork, the pump fakes, the dribble dribble pull up j's, the fade aways, the leadership, the drive to be THE GOAT all things we can still expect from Kobe.

OK, you gave a legit argument. I can buy a lot of what you are selling. But here is another question. Can you determine whether someone is a superstar based on the arenas they sell out and the merchandise they sell?


Blake Griffin is exciting. People go to the arena to see him. He brings ratings, jerseys, sell outs. Is he a superstar?

On the other hand, Tim Duncan and his teams were considered boring. The two lowest rated finals in history both involved Tim Duncan (03 (nets lost) and 07 (that's with him playing lebron).

The NBA couldn't even sell out every NBA finals game in 03. Are you saying he was never a superstar because he couldn't sell out arenas?

Depends on your definition of a superstar.

Was Tim Duncans play on the same level as that of a superstar? Yes.

Was he a an athlete that peopled liked to follow and cared about his career? No.

I would say that Tim Duncan was a superstar yes, but thats only because I follow the NBA closely. Some random person on the street may not have ever heard of Tim Duncan but most likely has heard of Kobe, that person will tell you that Tim Duncan probably is not a superstar.

KG top 5 international sales on his jersey

avg 20/10 in the playoffs with the highest combined +/- for most of the year was pretty much unstoppable this years playoffs

KG should still be considered a superstar how many big men are !!in with him

if your not a top 5 player in the league in scoring at some time in your career fans don't translate you as one of the best players in the game.
