From his peers

  • "He's an unbelievable player. He's God's gift, something that's going to flash before our eyes and I don't think it's every going to happen again. The only person I can think about he's catching up with is Michael Jordan." - w:Rashard Lewis[10]
  • "I give him all the respect in the world. He is the No. 1 player in the league, by far. It’s like that. With a player like him, he just wants that challenge. He’s just that fierce competitor. He doesn’t want to get out-showed. He’s the one who everybody’s afraid of." - w:Gilbert Arenas[11]
  • "I think Kobe Bryant should be at the top of the (MVP) list. His game is unstoppable." - w:Amare Stoudemire[12]

  • "To me he is the best player in the world right now. That guy doesn't know fear at all. He doesn't care. He would have won it for the Americans single-handedly." - w:Dirk Nowitzki[14]
  • "I played with both Kobe (Bryant) and Michael (Jordan). I would have to say that Kobe Bryant is the better player. Kobe has a much better shot, handles the ball better, and just has more tricks to go along with his game." - w:John Salley[15]
  • "Obviously Kobe is an unbelievable player. He can explode for 50 points at any given time. There's nothing we can do about that, and we're just going to have to deal with that. You're never going to stop Kobe. He's just too good. You just have to make him work for what he gets. Kobe is the greatest player I have ever seen at what he does." - w:Mike D'Antoni[16]
