Is Kobe the Best Laker of All Time?

Chase Blower, Reporter

Last Sunday Laker legend Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash. Many arguments have arose since of where he would be on peoples all time great lists. But the question I am asking today is, is Kobe the greatest Laker of all time? My simple answering yes, Kobe is the greatest laker of all time. Kobe stayed with the lakers for 20 years while winning 5 championships during his tenure. The 18 time all star retired from pro basketball in 2016 with over 33,000 points. Kobe overcame many obsticales throughout his career such as injuries, losing seasons, and rape allegations. However Kobe remained consistant through hard times by working harder than ever. This is what made Kobe so special. He worked day and night to become a better person, basketball player,  etc. Through it all he remained loyal to his childhood team, The Lakers, through thick and thin. Kobe will be remembered as the greatest Laker of all time.
