Yet another reason to hate Kobe...

"This is a franchise, like I've said in the past, guys whose jerseys hang up in the rafters are some of the all-time greats," Bryant said earlier this week. "Not just greats for the franchise. I don't know if there's any other organization that can say that."

Guess he doesn't remember all the retired numbers hanging in Boston.

Meh, the Lakers' retired jerseys tend to be more individual stars (Magic being a notable exception) and the Celtics' tend to be better team players. 

Or, to put it another way, the jerseys aren't the most important things hanging in our rafters  8)

Hate to say it, but the third greatest Celtic of all time might not be better then the 6th or 7th best Laker of all time. Talking about from an individual greatness standpoint.

Where's George Mikan Jersey hanging? Its definitely not hanging in staples center. I'm baffled Minneapolis Lakers almost never get brought up. Its as if they didn't exist. The only remanence is 5 championship trophies.

Are you sure about that? Mikan's Jersey isn't hanging there?

I don't think his number is even retired. It hasn't been worn since, but official Lakers retired numbers doesn't include George Mikan.

Honored but not retired: http://www.finals.com/lakers/history/minneapolis_lakers_020405.html . Even so they still claim those Minny titles. A shame if you ask me.

There are few players in the league who have ever been as good at scoring the ball as Kobe Bryant.

It's too bad he can't redeem those 30,000 points into another ring.

Wahoo ... of course he's the youngest, he's the only one on the list to go directly from high school to the NBA, (he had a four year head-start).

Sorry, but even in the most generous of moods I couldn't scrape together a congrats for this creep.

Ever.

Enjoy the celebrations with the rest of your sub 500 team Kobe.

The same team that you have been continually letting down on defense when the first sight of a screen comes your way.

you should hate to say it because that would be a lie.

Hmm, 3rd best Celtic would probably be Havlicek (Russell and Bird being 1 and 2).  I'm fully confident that Hondo is a lot better than whoever the Lakers post at 6 or 7 in their franshise's history.

Hey I love the Celtics as much as the next guy, but I think Kane made a fair statement.

If we go with Hondo at #3...

No doubt Wilt, Magic, Kareem, are ahead of him (they're all in the Bird/Russell greatest of all time range).

Then Shaq, Elgin Baylor, and Jerry West, are all ahead of Hondo too.

And like it or not, I think most unbiased people will probably end up putting Kobe higher than Hondo too (as much as it makes me shutter to say that).

You might be able to argue 1-2 of those guys isn't as good as Hondo, but I think most would say those are 7 players better than him.




Back to the Kobe thing though, with so few people at 30k, I think it's kind of weird to say "youngest to" when you're dealing with such a small club.  Like saying the youngest ever to 700 home runs or something. 

After 18 months with their Bigs, the Littles were: 46% less likely to use illegal drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school, 37% less likely to skip a class
