- Some fans are stating that due to the injuries the player faced throughout his career (including a terrible Achilles tear), he was not able to play at his absolute best during the decade.
Kobe fans delusional with the Decade team 😂. Be happy he made 3rd team. Y’all forget he retired and didn’t play 3 seasons of this decade and missed almost 2 full seasons with injuries. 3rd team is good enough man. He was 1st team the past 2

- However, other people see this as the NBA being gracious that despite the injuries and no play time, he made the team at all.
- Overall, it seems that people are having mixed feelings about Kobe’s placement — and he is not the only player being examined closely. Truly, every player has had their fair share of critics and supporters but the status of being as iconic as Kobe has made this national news.
Despite the ranking, shout out to Kobe and all of his achievements!
