No problem. Kobe will be showing his #6 rank. With his fingers. In June. #NBArank

Kobe #6 in #NBArank. I thought he'd be at least #3 behind LBJ and KD. That's a diss

I can't wait for Kobe to say in an interview after scoring 45, "Not bad for being the 2nd best player on my team." #NBARank

According to #NBARank there are two better NBA players (Dwight & CP3) in L.A. than Kobe. We'll see.
