Are they trolling here?
ESPN is releasing their 2013 NBA player rankings and their 25th choice has people stunned.
The network asked their forecast panel to rank every NBA player on a scale of 1-10 based on what they expect their overall level of play will be this upcoming season. Lakers star Kobe Bryant was ranked 25th with a score of 7.78.
At 35, I think it’s important to realize that Kobe is on the downside of his career, although he still puts up numbers. But I’m not sure how many would turn having him on their team down. I’m sure this will only serve to fuel the Mamba more. He may never pass the ball this season.
Please note that Chris Bosh will be ranked higher than Bean.
