The Internet Has Responded to Kobe Ranked #93 in the NBA by ESPN (Tweets)
It’s been a tough couple years for Kobe, and the popular consensus is that he won’t be able to power back to his previous form with his determination and grit. His body just isn’t up to it. For that reason (and possibly some other ones regarding his attitude) the Laker star was ranked #93 in ESPN‘s annual rundown of the best players in the league.
He fell from #40 in 2014.
Fans have spoken up, and, as is usual, the reaction is mixed, but heated on both sides:

#NBARank, is like an annual tsunami that only hits land for Kobe fans. Everyone else is at a safe distance watching via the news.

Gonna be sad when Kobe retires b/c i really love the days that he gets mad about his ESPN ranking then proves that he should be even lower — Yung BerenstEin (@HumbleTeej) October 7, 2015

That should resolve that, right? Oh, wait. That resolves nothing. I guess people will keep on speculating until Kobe takes the court in a regular season game in about three weeks. Yup. The season’s coming that soon.
