    oh hell to the nooooo to the no no nooooo

    @WineCellar @ea99 I do agree with you in that Kobe refined his Fadeaway for the 07 season...but he had begun using it more and more after Shaq left and the lakers offense relied more on Kobe isos...Especially since this card is supposedly his 81 game performance...he scored like half his shots on ridiculous fades. But honestly dont you guys think he shouldve gotten a 99? I mean old man 96 MJ gets 99 but NO other player does? Not 50 ppg Wilt or 35 PPG with an 81 pt performance Kobe? I mean thats whack...Kobe deserves that 99...especially for that game...No one ever (except Wilt) has scored near 81 points...not even MJ...I also think his 80 dunk is a bit of a joke...Its 27 year old Kobe without major injuries...didnt exactly decrease insanely since 01 (that cards got like 95 dunk) Apart from that the offense is INSANE and accurate...I wouldve liked a better defense...idk why people dont realize but Kobe is one of the best defenders ever...maybe even better than Pippen and Jordan...before everyone hates....Kobe has by FAR the most defensive first team and defensive second team wins of any player ever...Hes always been a consistent beast there...but 90 is still great! Mainly the Post Fade and Dunk shouldve gone up to give him that 99 ovrl. Anyway SO HAPPY to finally get my Mamba

    I completely agree with you this kobe deserved a 99. its almost like 2k saying f*ck u kobe fans mj Is the goat, and he is, but this kobe still should have been a 99. That 81 point game is possibly the greatest individual performance by a player ever in any sport, and will never be topped in this day and age unless curry gets bored playing against the 76ers. But anyway, kobe deserved a 99

    0

    I think your forgetting Wilt's 100 point game

    2

    wilt was playing on a half decent team compared to the sh*t sandwich lakers kobe was carrying, the lakers came back from about twenty down in the second half to win by about 16, and wilt was playing in a day and age where no one could keep up with him physically except Russell, as well as playing when their was no rules regarding offensive goaltending so he could redirect teammates shots into the net.
    Plus, I said POSSIBLY the greatest individual performance

    2

    Yeah, but this card is based on only 1 game, not the whole year, and he didn't even dunk very much in the 81 pt game. I just watched the game a couple days ago NBA TV. Most of his points were from jumpers, layups/inside shots, and a ton of FT's. Plus an 80 driving dunk and 45 contact dunk isn't bad at all. He dunks on people easily and a lot more than he did in the 81 pt game. He didn't have a huge defensive game either, probably why he only got 1 D badge and 73 shot contest and reaction time.

    1

    I agree 100% with you, but the truth is that they just simply tried to make this card as juiced as possible without it being a 99, to give the fans what they want.

    1

    Yeah they def did, and u knew they would. If they can find a way to give all kinds of guys who were good but not great players a 96 ovr, u know they were gonna make this card insane. It's kinda dumb how everyone gets a 96 diamond card or a few guys a 97 ovr besides Kobe, MJ, and Magic, but they deserve it. They could've still given him other D badges and still be a 98 ovr. They only gave him a 73 shot contest and reaction time. His D is really good but not top notch like MJ and Magic.

    0

    but kobe is one of the greatest defenders on MJ's level and better than Lebron defensively

    1

    Your actually right but I think 2k is just going off the idea that Jordan is the best in te world and that would be the main reason he outranked Kobe his 81 performance should've gotten him to 99 overall. The layups are underrated and so is the mid shot.

    0

    Kobe deserves a 99 he is the GOAT

    kobe is not a better defender than Jordan or pippen, please stop.

    @WineCellar When u say one thing and your parent gives you a 2 hour lecture

    A lot of the players aren't updated, how do people continue to ignore this. That Wilt will probably be 99, but no less than 97

    2

    I know Bro dont worry, He'll probs also be 98 but thats not the issue...Its that 1. according to 2k only MJ will have a 99...2. Not even MJs best years... 3. Kobe and Wilt are therefore only 1 overall higher than Kyrie Fucking Irving and 2 higher than all those other diamond douches...Thats the issue here...you realize JR, Kyrie, Kemba, Love and co will have the same or higher overalls than Magic, Bird, Tmac, Shaq, Hakeem, Kareem, AI and so on...thats ridiculous. Idc if theyre for one game/moments-tbt...all of the legends have had 50+ games as well way more times

    2

    Diamond TBT moments cards aren't a bad idea... but LUIS SCOLA? KYRIE? BRANDON JENNINGS? That's the bad part. THIS was a good card, but really the only one. It's just they're choosing the wrong players to give a really good card.

    exactly!! Kobe's my fav player buth the others are a joke

    am i the only one who's noticed that this Kobe is worth more that Jordan?!

    1

    Well none of the prime Jordans have been released so yeah...98 rated Kobe is the highest rated card in the game and it looks like only 95-96 Jordan will top that when he is released

    But it was really never determined if wilt scored 100 they just said he did he will even tell you himself

    what do you mean? Ofc Wilt scored 100...

    post fade, not iso fade

    -3

    Kobe is not a better defender than MJ or Pippen. A great defender, sure, but not better than those two.
    Not only that, but all-defense teams are a bit of a joke. Jimmy Butler made all-defense second team last year, and I know this sounds a bit stupid, but Butler was bad on defense last year. Like he shouldn't of been considered anywhere near the top defenders last year and I have very valid proof to back this up.
    http://stats.nba.com/player/#!/202710/tracking/defense/?Season=2014-15&SeasonType=Regular%20Season
    Players shot 4% better when they were guarded by Butler, than when they were guarded by other players.
    To call Butler a 2-way player last year was asinine. Now, Butler is a great perimeter defender when he wants to be. He probably is the best Lebron defender in the league, he completely locked him down last year in the playoffs. But that's the playoffs and this was a regular season award and he got it based solely off of reputation.
    Lebron got an all-defensive second team nod in '14. That year, he made all defensive second team. Lebron made players he was on shoot 1.5% worse. Kevin Durant on the other hand, made players shoot 6.5% worse when he was on them. He has never made an all-defensive team.
    Now this stat doesn't track help defense, but you get the point. All-defense teams are usually based off of reputation, and not off of substance. I'm not saying Kobe is a bad defender (he isn't), just saying that all-defense is not really a good measure of a player's defense.

    1

    Bro defense isnt only about reducing shot percentage...its also guarding passage ways, stopping easy shots (if someone pushes you out to the perimeter thats great...if the attacker still scores then thats good offense not bad defense), steals, blocks, defensive win shares. Also throughout his career Kobe has had better players on his positions...Kobe guards and attacks Guards...both Shooting and Point guards...Lebron guards forwards...Sure KD and Kawhi are amazing...but theyve only been around a few years and its 2 guys...Lebron does occasionally guard other positions but i'm talking about day to day basis...Kobe played in the most SG and later most PG heavy league...and those "advanced" stats are often BS...sorry but you cant compare different players based off how much they reduced an opposing players shot... Lebron might have guarded bigger player one year, while KD guarded outside shooters more heavily.. theres waaaaay too many factors...every little shit fact could go in there...home games, away games, how many games each player played...which position etc...Kobe is a better defender than Lebron and KD and anyone else...and He's definitely on par with Pippen and MJ, you have to agree with that...I think players and coaches know best as they have to deal with/against Kobe and every other player...and Kobe has won the most Defensive 1st teams of any player, plus is regarded as the most versatile player and best 1v1 player (offense and defense) by literally every single person affiliated with the NBA...Within the top 5 perimeter defenders...which are most likely some constellation of Kobe, MJ, Pippen, Payton and Moncrief it is hard to argue whos best thats true...but Kobe certainly isnt worse than anyone on that list...If ur opinion is that Pippen was better then cool dude...I think Kobe has the edge...but you cant say anyone in those top 5 is actually WORSE than the other or that any of todays players come close to Kobe's defensive abilities, hard work and insane hustle.

    -2

    Steals are not a good indicator of defense. The first example that comes to my head is Monta Ellis, who is a God awful defender who averaged two steals. Blocks don't really matter that much when talking about guards, and defensive win shares are a bad indicator. Pau Gasol was 5th in defensive win shares last year (other than his shot blocking, he was piss poor on defense and I say that as a Bulls fan), and Harden was 10th, above Noel (one of the best defenders in the league) and Anthony Davis. Ron Artest was 7th in 03-04, and has never been a top 10 defender according to defensive win shares in his career other than that one year. In 2013-2014, Carlos Boozer was 13th in defensive win shares, which good God no. Not only that, last year Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, a top

    Also yes, while advanced statistics are not very reliable, the stat I used is much more reliable than other advanced statistics (individual defensive rating, defensive win shares), for judging a players one on one defensive impact. And yes, I can judge Lebron based off of that, because the stat shows perimeter defense as well as interior and 2013-2014, he made players on the perimeter shoot 2.2% worse (which mind you, he guarded more frequently than the interior), while the interior they shot above their averages.

    Anyways, you can have the opinion that Kobe is the best perimeter defender, I don't think that's true, but you know what? You can have your opinions, I think Jordan is the best perimeter defender of all time (or Payton), but I am not getting into that because if I look at anymore statistics of Jordan I will gouge my eyes out. All I was saying was that all-defense teams are not a good way to judge NBA player's defensive capabilities, they're voted by the media, who to be entirely honest, as KD aptly put it "You guys really don’t know shit."

    1

    I get u bro, we dont have to agree thats fine. I just think that while Defensive teams arent entirely accurate they portray the opinions of players, coaches and sportswriters that maybe arent captured in stats...I always find stats so difficult to use as an indicator of whos better between 2 players u know? Cuz lets say Kobe has better scoring, steals, defense than Lebron, while Lebron has better rebound and assist values...people keep fuckin each other up about that...then theres Defensive and all nba team nominations, championships, mvps, finals mvps, scoring titles etc... also these player play at different positions, during different times, different amount of games. Lebron started right away in a Cavs team that was shit, while Kobe had to take a backseat for 2 seasons on a growing Lakers squad...So you could say if you take those seasons away Kobe would also top Lebron stats-wise...then again lebron Fans would say thats unfair because you didnt cut away Lebrons early seasons...so I always hate people who say stats dont lie cuz its BS, everythings so independent...then theres also like a whole other player who has more assists and rebounds than Lebron, even PGs like Big O and Magic...and almost as many ppg as Kobe and Lebron, so someone could just say "oh well theyre better cuz stats dont lie" Its a never ending debate...So I just feel like theres soooo many defensive stats...like offense where Kobe happens to shoot 4 feet further out than Lebron which is ALOT...does it really make a difference apart from Kobe having a tougher time getting crazy Shooting % ? Idk...Same on defense...Im sure Kobe outguns everyone in some category whilst Durant might cause offensive player to miss due to his long arms, Lebron might break them down physically while a player like AI gets 10 steals in a game and suddenly has the best steal values with MJ...Thats why I value Defensive teams cuz they're voted on by people who see and perceive all these players rather than looking at stats you might not see...Timmy is seen as a top 3 PF EVER although he has worse stats than probs the top 5...but he's one of those unselfish player where stats dont do justice...same principle here..and its different than the MVP (which i agree is a fucking joke i.e. best player ON THE BEST TEAM) Defensive and all nba teams can have a player on the worst team and thats what I think is great! But enough debating, I think we agree we have some amazing defenders and Kobe, MJ, Pippen, Payton and co are probs the best ever, so the other stuff is just opinion based. Sorry if I didnt use too many facts :p Ive been in these massive debates on this site and also tend to back up my opinions with numerous stats and accolades as you have provided above ^ but I just wanted to write this down as a sort of agree to disagree thing :p Hows ur team lookin btw? Im tryin to get this Kobe atm but he's way too expensive so we'll have to see! My fav player of all time tho so thats my goal for 2k. Gonna go watch Mamba play live a couple more times this season, All Star Game tickets are ridiculous but I got vs Spurs, vs Mavs and vs Bulls tickets so far (Y) Kobe better come up and say hey haha (Y)

    -2

    Yeah I feel what you're saying, it doesn't make it any easier when only recently people have been able to actually torrent every game. I still cant find any 2008 Finals games, and I had to go into the trenches of the internet to find game 6 of the 2003 NBA Finals (not even the whole series).
    Also I think my team is pretty good, especially considering I haven't used any VC, and I can usually compete with people using amethyst lineups (I have no amethysts). Everyone fits my style well, and right now I'm hoping that dynamic Lillard goes up another overall so his price leaps, because I really regret not selling him for 70K+ when I had the chance, he's down to 50K now.

    2

    Yeah thats true, I moved to LA in 02 and watched numerous Lakers games since then. To me watching live is a whole different thing. To me the energy Kobe generated and just his pure will to win and drive the crowd nuts by making the toughest shots of any player ive seen just make him the greatest to me. I watched a lot of Jordan games before that and he was great as well. I do however feel the league has gotten a bit worse lately :/ idk what it is...im not one of those "omg the 70s were great" people hahaha but Wilt, Russell, Kareem, Big O, West era was insane, the 80's were great and then 90's through to like 06 was amazing as well...I just loved seeing Kobe battle Prime players like Dirk, Tmac, Vince, Allen fuckin Iverson and all those guys...now the league has gotten so small... All PGs and SFs, Harden, Klay and Kobe are like the only real SGs and Centers have absolutely vanished apart from Boogie puttin up some nice games...Oh well :p And sounds sick. I only have the Amethysts from actually playing the game except Scalabrine I got off the black market and Hakeem I got in a pack, but both were absolute luck :p I refuse to spend alot of money on this game so im keepin it at 50 bucks max overall

    -2

    Yeah, but I think the league will get bigger soon. The Grizzlies were always a threat with their big lineup (they did go up 2-1 on the Warriors last year), but they have just gotten old and they really just didn't have the talent to pull off a title run. It might actually be the 76ers who bring back the big lineup with Noel/Okafor or Noel/Embiid. The Pacers ruined what they had imo by going small, and I cant see them becoming a contender unless they switch something up (after the Bulls lost Rose, they were definitely the Heat's main rival in the east, and almost beat their small ball in 2013). The Spurs might also go big in the playoffs when they try to juice all that's left out of Tim Duncan, but eh.
    Unless someone gives me a PSN gift card for my birthday, I'm probably not going to buy VC any time soon, I'm fine with my team right now, and honestly the only amethyst (or diamond, who knows with how they're doing ratings now) card I actually want is MVP Rose

    -3

    Forgot to finish what I was saying about MKG

    MKG is a top defender in the league, in fact he'll probably be the best if all goes right with him, and he is no where to be found on DWS lists

    -1

    So my boy KD is a better defender than that LeFlop kid?

    But why is it based off reputation? KD has a huge rep in the NBA...

    0

    Usually, this year, Lebron according to the stat I used, he's been dominant on defense this year. Of course, that really doesn't matter when you cant defend in the playoffs like he has been shown unable to do numerous times (Kawhi Leonard in the 2014 Finals for example) and your help defense has gone down the shitter.

    When I say reputation, I mean on defense. I have never actually heard anyone talk about KD's defense, yet I have heard that Lebron is a top defender in the league, and not only that, but is also able to guard 1-5 (which is laughable). Lebron has never been the defender he is cut out to be (albeit he has had his moments), yet he frequently has gotten praise for his defense. Why? I don't know, Curry doesn't get that kind of praise for his average defense. Because of this praise he got though, he got his all-defense team in 2014. I cannot speak to whether Lebron deserved it in previous years (based on his usual defensive performances in the playoffs though, that would be a big no), but in 2014, he had no right to be on that list, and KD was a better choice.

    kevin durant (aka the bathroom logo) isnt shit compared to the king

    ok, lebron lover. The self proclaimed king can continue to brick shots, stat pad, flop, and travel.

    and since we're on a kobe card, why does kobe wear #24?



    because it's lebrons record in the finals. 2-4, soon to be 2-5.

    They go in more than the hooks

    0

    Hooks go in a lot more than last year, and fades go in a lot less than last year. And hooks go in more for me than post fades this year, unless it's someone like Hakeem with a great 98 post fade.

    0

    The only people I can consistently make post hooks with is gold shaq and 6th man of the year Kevin McHale. It just might be my timing or something but post fades are more consistent for me

    0

    Yeah I feel u. Every time no matter what it says very late release on hook shots, but I still make a lot of them. Post Hook Specialist and Bank Is Open helps a lot (with post fades too). The DPOY Hakeem, Robinson, and Howard all have good hooks. Gold Shaq isn't bad either. Probably with a lot of the gold players it's real hard. Still make plenty of fade aways this year, but not nearly as many as 2K15, I made damn near 90% of my post fades.

    0

    Oh well that makes sense if your using those bad a** amethysts lol, I kinda wish fades were cheese like last year

    0

    Yeah, but last year, it was so easy that people always complained and said it was cheese if u did post fades. Some people would get majorly pissed off and start yelling so I didn't do it that much unless my opponent was using them. Ths sapphire 99 ovr Hakeem, Onyx Garnett, Onyx Kobe, and PD MJ's I could make damn near every time.

    0

    Unless you have Hakeem with Gold fade ace, he is money.

    -2

    Bruh y'all gotta keep in mind this card is based on one game. I don't think he really used the post fade in the game. If it was just in general, then it would prolly be a 98 or 99 post fade.

    Kobe really got a deadly post fadeaway around 2008 in 2006 he didnt use it that much.

    Kobe isn't as good as good as Michael on the fadeway even when he scored 81 points

    0

    Id have to disagree with that... Kobe uses the fade more than MJ did, who also used it a lot...Hard to argue against Kobe being the most versatile SG offensively...Should definitely have a higher post fade...In the past decade no ones shot better post Fades as a guard...and maybe even overall only Dirk has been better on the fade.

    2

    While MJ was the better scorer in his day, I still firmly believe that Kobe is the most technically skilled SG that ever played the game. No idea why that post fade is so low.

    0

    agree! Also having the most all nba defensive team selection I think he should have a better defense. Reaction time, interception etc...Man he was beast on steals and is among the top 5 perimeter defenders ever...dont know why 2k would give so many players a better defense :/

    0

    Idk man i agree Kobes fadeway was is nuts but Michael made it the slightest bit more effective, Kobe on the other hand and I hope u got to actually watch him in his prime, would shoot it while it was more contested by the d Kobe just being the mac daddy he is could shoot being well being contested by defender(s)

    Could shoot well being conestest by defender(s)**

    Beast. Good job 2K, recognize the greatness, i would rather have 98-99 Kobe, T-Mac, LBJ moments than 95 Scola or 96 Lawson

    Ty Lawson did hit 10 threes in a row tho, that's incredible. I agree he shouldn't be a diamond, and they could've lowered some of his other stats, but 10 threes in a row deserves a beastly card.

    The most he has hit is 11, but he didn't hit them all in a row like Ty did.

    LOL and then again, Chandler Parsons broke the NBA record for 10 threes in one half. . . . no diamond for him? LMAO

    3

    You bring up a fair point

    0

    Klay went 13-13 in the quarter, 9-9 from 3, with 37 points, blowing out the previous record of 33 (There are a lot of 32-30s). He scored 50 in the game. If that doesn't deserve a diamond, then why are the others diamonds... And he did hit them in a row like Ty did. He shot 100% in the quarter, how can he NOT have hit them in a row.

    0

    He prolly will end up getting a diamond for it, but he's actually a 3pt shooter, ty lawson is not. That's what makes it so incredible.

    TY LAWSON IS A GOAT

    welp steph did that in 2016-17 season

    0

    That guys name is Kobe...Sorry Klay has to take a back seat... but yeah his 30+ point quarter deserves a moments card...Just not another diamond...players that usually arent the greatest cant just get diamond for 1 game...thats why I hate Lawson, JR, Butler, Kemba, Love and co Diamond cards....for 1 game they deserve overalls just below Kobe and Mj and basically the same as Bird and Magic...not even close.

    -1

    Well if Scola gets a diamond for 44 points, why doesn't Klay deserve one for almost that many in ONE QUARTER, shooting 100%, and 50 points in the game. If those other cards have diamonds, Klay's should too- but I'm not saying those other cards should have diamonds.

    1

    Yup ur absolutely right! Klay scoring 37 points in a quarter is actually special!! and he's already a great player so it makes sense to bump him up to amethyst or diamond as u wouldnt even need too many overall points to get there...but all those other players usually rated like80 overall who get to 96 for a 40-50 pt game?!?! stupid as hell...literally every gold player card has basically had a 40 point game...

And its 57,000 to open a box with 10 players in it.. And then do not pull the dimaond kobes, iversons .. #3. NBA2K16 is allowing players to jack up the MT prices on the cards.. diamond kobe is 5, 345,270 My team points are you kidding me.. You have to be floyd mayweather to play MT mode. Cause of the free roam the players have to sell cards ..at crazy crack head prices.. So meany of us love kobe and heaven forbid kids who want to play this mode who could only aford the game itself. Will never get this card. . #4.In road to the playoffs mode 2k does not match players with other players of their skill level.. And man if you playing a person with a diamond kobe ..And other diamonds forget about it..If you were not as lucky enough to pull some yourself.. Or come up with 5,367,476 MT points I mean dam... Just my thoughts. NBa 2k needs to do something about this and fast... I mean shit the prices that NBA 2k16 make for the cards are great .. And you know its jacked the hell up because 2k16 buys a james for 3,000 But then some crack head players out there go and sell him and want well now its like 100,000 200,000 And then Nba2k16 saids if you want to sell us a card like Dimond iverson they will give you 3,000 but players sell um for 300,000 and shit.. Really ??? Come on... Nba2k16 you guys needs to sell these cards to players period have a store and you sell them to us. Even then I would pay real money for cards at least then I know for a fact I am getting what I am paying for dam.. Cause for some crack head reason gamers think its cool to ask for 5,543,876 for one card .. cause its kobe.. Really ?? And Diamond wilt is not that much. Steph is not that much james is not that much. No other card period in the entier dam game.. who does that.. I mean NBA2k16 you guys sell the dam cards every other way packs ,boxes Like a card shop in the game. So 2k16 you sell us singles . Shit sell us single cards give us that option . SHIT you buy them as singles from us gamers and xbox one players are not even putting the dam dimaond kobe card up anymore.. NBA2k16 designers I am challenging you guys to lower what cards can be sold for .The maximum should be lowered this way gamers cant jack up these prices like this.. I think I will put in a call to you guys I have the number cause this needs to stop.. I am boycotting this shit.

    [] AREG Just now
    All this means is you cant just rely on packs and have to use other tactics.

    0

    Shut up. Quit complaining because you will never get to use this card like 99% of the people that play 2k. Its better then them dropping locker codes every week and every other game you run into someone who has pink diamonds(or whatever they would call them this year) as their whole starting lineup.

    0

    I agree, I said this a long time ago. The best players are way too rare, and this game mode gets boring if you don't get to try out new players. Everybody is applauding 2k for putting out all these great new diamond cards, but how many people are actually going to be able to play with them? At least last year, if you spent money you were probably going to get something decent. This year, you could probably put $1000 into packs and not get anything more than golds. Once you get a decent amount of cards, there is no reason to open packs anymore because you are just giving away your MT. You should be able to make MT just by playing the game. And completely off topic - Did they not say at the beginning of the year that there would be new gauntlet boards added throughout? Where are they? The gauntlet has been dead for me for like 2 months.

    0

    It's basic supply and demand. It ain't the person selling the cards fault they go so high, it's people buying tons of MT. 2K need to find a way to cut that out and give us more ways to actually earn substantial amounts of MT, not 5K for beating a challenge, it should be 50K or something like that.

    Jalen Rose is crying

    Dude I created this card and the Jalen Rose card in the normal rosters and played a game with them; Kobe went for 85 with Jalen on him

  • 10

    Card has lower speed and vertical than his 08' mvp card...so Kobe get's faster and more athletic as he ages...

  • 9

    This is why 2k will never have accurate overalls. They suck on mj's dick and obey his every command of no one else being a 99. In my opinion, WITH 2K'S LOGIC, the only cards in the game than could be a 99 with mj would be 81 kobe or 100 point wilt. But even though mj never had a game that was even close to those two, no one else can be a 99 because apparently to 2k there was never a time in history that anyone was ever better than mj

    1

    Yeah its a fucking joke...especially since its the '96 Mj thats 99...not even the best MJ hahahahaha...shouldve given the 30+ ppg MJs a 99...cuz right now its 35ppg Kobe (with 81 pt game in that season) and 50ppg Wilt (with 100p game) and numerous MJs with 33-37ppg (including 63 and 69 pt games) BELOW the 1996 old ass MJ...Looks just like the MVP award does...best player on THE BEST TEAM...96 Bulls...smh 2k...Mamba and Wilt deserve that 99...for millions of people they are the GOAT...and for basically everyone they all make up the top 3 or top 5 no matter what order...and the fact that shit players get diamond ratings that are just 1-2 overall points lower than the legends is a fucking joke...Jimmy Fucking Butler actually has more stat points than Kobe...2k just randomly made overalls 96 for Butler and 98 for Kobe although Butler has more stats...not evem kidding look it up...and thats a fucking Joke...Kobe is better at absolutely everything than Butler...

    I thought it was 93 Jordan that should be a 99. He had 40 PPG in the finals that year.

    2

    Yeah totally agree!!! (Y) literally any MJ between like 89-93 is better than the 96 one...Better scoring, faster, more agile, already in his prime and a winner...1996 MJ didnt have a career high in anything...MJ scored like 32ppg or more in 5 seasons...any of those wouldve been great.

    1

    I totally agree but the reason y a lot of people think that 96 jordan was his best year is because 1. that was the best team record in nba history, and 2. that was his best year from the 3 pointer shooting over 40%. Especially 2k players since the number 1 thing that most people look for in guards is their 3 point rating.

    0

    The rating system this year is BASED OFF OF MJ. He's 99, everyone else's overall is partly in comparison to him. Ronnie and LD said it on the livestream. That was before the throwback moments cards, but they are still going by that logic. This Kobe should be 99 OVR, but there shouldn't even be these stupid cards in the first place.

    Same Post Fade + Post Control as 07' LeBron; shameful 2K.
    Kobe's post game is so polished

    totally agree...also Lebrons defense is always rated as good or better than Kobe's...idk where people get that from...just because some stupid analysts pretend Lebron can guard every position...no he fucking cant...He cant stop Shaq down the lane...he cant stop AI running right past him...Lebron's weight is totally faked...He really isnt that massive...Hes bigger and stronger than Kobe, not gonna deny that...but Kobe has 12 All NBA defensive teams....thats the most EVER...Lebron has like 4...Basketball is 50% Defense and 50% offense...now Offensively Kobe fans and lebron fans can argue all they want...but Kobe easily wins the defensive battle...and offensively Lebron doesnt even have a good post fade nor does he ever really use it...Kobe has had the best Post Fade of any guard in the past decade...and even counting in other positions theres only really one other player (Dirk) whos been more efficient on a fade...and yes...Kobe did use the fade back then...started once the lakers relied on Kobe isos more after Shaq left...also in his 81 pt game literally have the shots were insane fades and post moves...

    Lebron is a better defender than Kobe. No he cant guard Shaq but few people could. Just because Kobe has 12 all defensive selections to Lebron's 6 doesn't make him better. He has been in the league for 7 more seasons. Lebron and Hondo are the only 2 perimeter players to score 2000 points and have 6.5 defensive win shares for a season. Kobe's highest season when it comes to DWS is 4.5. Lebron has 8 season with more than 4.5. Also Lebron has more total DWS than Kobe and has played close to 400 games less.

    -2

    Lebron has always been on a better team. Win shares are total BS. Yeah but Lebron wont make a single more All NBA defensive team even if he has 7 years more than Kobe...he's got Kawhi and co on his position that will easily beat him to it. Kobe is definitely a better perimeter defender you cant argue that...so the other defensive category would be post defending, which as I said is a joke for a SG and a SF as they might defend their own position if they get to the block, but apart from that they cant stop the big guys. And dont come into the debate to say Lebron is better than Kobe. He's not. and 2k ratings for the 2 suck. Young Lebron also has a better 3 rating than young Kobe which is the biggest joke ever...whats ur response to that? Offensive win shares off treys? lol

    0

    You must have only started watching ball in 2012 to think Lebron has always had better teams. From Kobes rookie year the lakers made it deep into the playoffs bc they had Shaq and Eddie Jones and Van Exel. they were loaded when they won 3 straight in the early 2000s and again in 04 when they added Karl Malone and GP. But Kobe wanted to do it on his own so he got rid of Shaq and Phil. Kobe had a lot of help when he won his 2 finals mvps as well. When Lebron lost his first finals against the spurs in 07. His second highest scoring teammate during that finals was Drew Gooden. So dont give me that crap that Lebron has always had better teams

    -1

    Are you guys serious? Kobe has made 12 All NBA defensive teams...Lebron has made a grand total of 6... And in contrast to you ive been watching basketball since the 90s and actually go to games live often...I can guarantee that no player in the NBA thinks Lebron is a better defender than Kobe...look it up, players always say its hardest to play Kobe...Lebron just gets hyped by the media who say he's "Big" "strong" and "guards all positions"...Just because Kobe is old now doesnt mean shit. Lebron wont make a single other All defensive team now that Kawhi and Butler are around... Kobe is easily a better defender. And that 07 finals was 1 year...and the cavs had an amazing role team...its not always how good the second best player is...Lebron had fuckin Bosh and Wade and lost to Nowitzki...literally only Nowitzki...I can also go and say "the second highest scorer was a 36 year old Jason Terry" uuuhh im so smart...honestly go back and watch some basketball...look up any players opinion on who the greatest player is...look up Magics and MJs opinion if you want, i dont give a fuck what u look for, everyone affiliated with the NBA, coaches, players etc all believe Kobe to be the best defender and 1v1 player of all current player, and maybe even all time. And Lebron Dickriders really dont belong on this page....Even 2k, the biggest Lefraud lovers ever have the best Lebum rated at 97 and Kobe at a 98...find somewhere else to throw ur Lebum shit

    oh i dont know about that. But 2k actually can control overalls u can look at everyones total stats and people with more stats than others sometimes have lower ratings.

    What all kind of shoes can he take? Can he wear Jordan's?, I wanna put some diamond speed shoes on him. And I know what shoes the other kobe's take, but sometimes it's different for diamond players. Diamond John Wall takes Nikes, but gold John Wall takes Adidas. Anyone have this diamond kobe that can tell me?

    0

    I cant guarantee it 100% but since they are using real brands, 2k has to respect the companies' signed players. That means this Kobe will most likely only be able to wear Nike's as he has a contract with Nike. Frobe can wear Adidas I think because at that time he had a different contract. Im saving up for this Kobe atm so I'll be able to answer the Jordan question for sure soon...However logically he should be able to wear Jordans as Nike owns the Jordan brand. Nonetheless, 2k have split Jordan and Nike in the shoe listings so its possible they are keeping them completely seperate. That would suck because Kobe would be limited to Nike and players like Melo and Wade (signed SPECIFICALLY to Jordan) wont be able to wear Nikes but only Jordans :/ :/

    Kobe Bean Bryant (born August 23, 1978) is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He entered the NBA directly from high school and won five NBA championships with the Lakers. Bryant is an 18-time All-Star, 15-time member of the All-NBA Team, and 12-time member of the All-Defensive team. He led the NBA in scoring during two seasons, and ranks third on both the league's all-time regular season scoring and all-time postseason scoring lists. He holds the NBA record for the most seasons playing with one franchise for an entire career.

    The son of former NBA player Joe Bryant, Kobe Bryant enjoyed a successful high school basketball career at Lower Merion High School in Pennsylvania, where he was recognized as the top high school basketball player in the country. He declared for the NBA draft upon graduation, and was selected with the 13th overall pick in the 1996 NBA draft by the Charlotte Hornets, who traded him to the Los Angeles Lakers. As a rookie, Bryant earned himself a reputation as a high-flyer and a fan favorite by winning the 1997 Slam Dunk Contest, and he was named an All-Star by his second season. Despite a feud between them, Bryant and Shaquille O'Neal led the Lakers to three consecutive championships from 2000 to 2002.

    In 2003, Bryant was accused of sexual assault in Colorado, but the charges were eventually dropped, and a civil suit was settled out of court. After the Lakers lost the 2004 NBA Finals, O'Neal was traded to the Miami Heat. Bryant became the cornerstone of the Lakers, and he led the NBA in scoring during the 2005–06 and 2006–07 seasons. In 2006, he scored a career-high 81 points against the Toronto Raptors, the second most points scored in a single game in league history behind Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point game in 1962. Bryant was awarded the regular season's Most Valuable Player Award (MVP) in 2008. After losing in the 2008 NBA Finals, he led the Lakers to two consecutive championships in 2009 and 2010, earning the Finals MVP Award on both occasions. He continued to be among the top players in the league through 2013, when the 34-year-old Bryant suffered a torn Achilles tendon. Although he recovered, his play was limited the following two years by season-ending injuries to his knee and shoulder, respectively. Citing his physical decline, he announced that he would be retiring after the 2015–16 season.

    At 34 years and 104 days of age, Bryant became the youngest player in league history to reach 30,000 career points. He is also the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history. Following his second year in the league, Bryant was chosen to start every All-Star Game until his retirement for a record 18 consecutive appearances, and his four All-Star MVP Awards are tied for the most in NBA history. At the 2008 and 2012 Summer Olympics, he won gold medals as a member of the U.S. national team. Sporting News and TNT named Bryant the top NBA player of the 2000s.

    80 driving dunk and 85 post fade :( why does 2k always do Kobe dirty?

    0

    probably because he would be a 99 ovr if it was higher and hey you cant have 2 99 in nba2k

    Bruh they ain't doin him dirty.... this is a Kobe that can actually shoot... 98 overall....

    Kobe won the dunk contest and he was a beast at dunking just ask Dwight Howard I would give him an 88 at the lowest. He has lower driving dunk then James Har_en.

    This is a card for '06. Last time he won the dunk contest was '97.

    The chances of anyone getting this card is like winning the 1.5 million Powerball! there is no chance! overall the ratings speak for itself and, in my opinion, feel he's the best player in the game! well, I guess having him in gauntlet will do for all of us :)

    LeBron James: 41 Points, 99 Overall
    Kobe Bryant: 81 Points, 98 Overall


    Logic.

    0

    They didn't include a Kobe with a 60 point playoff game but they did include a Lebron with a 41 point double double playoff game in the finals with his back to the wall, it's contextual and Kobe is obviously still better but they ride Lebron's dick and forget Kobes legendary stretches of 60 point playoff games

Yet there are 4-5 MJ's that have the same/higher overall than this card. I respect MJ as a GOAT, but 2k is dickriding MJ too hard right now.

    I understand that when this card came out 2k still didn't want anyone not named michael jordan to be 99(before they completely fucked up), but some stats are simply a joke. Driving dunk should be at least 95, vertical should be in the 88/93 range and his speed and quickness should be 91/92 considering the 08 one has 90 for both. Not to mention his D should be better. Even tho it's still great, prime kobe is one of the best defending SGs ever(and overall one of the best all around defenders ever, he was a friggin shadow). Still, the card is godly.

    I appreciate the content a lot but I do understand him. They'll definitely decrease in price over time but it would be great if they could increase the pack quantities slightly. Either way its great they're making cards like this!

    0

    Yeah but if they increased pack odds, then everyone would be running around with a diamond of some kind, which would make it unfair to the people who don't spend actual money on the game

    Thats why I said slightly. I dont want the market getting filled with these. Just increase the quantities a tiny bit

    0

    I get what your saying. Increase the odds a little bit to give everyone a chance, however slight, to get him. But I just feel like there shouldn't be more than 20 in circulation in the entire game

    1

    Thats just far too few. In FIFA they always give out decent numbers of the elite cards. If these ones are this rare/expensive imagine how much Kobe, Jordan and LeBron's diamonds will be

    lol you call this "content", this is unrealistic content that maybe 5 people will get, have fun pulling 70 ovr free agents from tbt packs, they should give out real content like challenges for mt, new gauntlet boards, new rewards for collections. This is just a money grab scam.

    The funny thing is, people are buying MT off external websites not VC through 2K, so 2K isn't actually making profit off this card, except for the few people that still buy VC

    Nice, if Kobe gets a 98 for the second highest points in a game, I think Wilt should get a 99 for his 100 point game

    1

    Only thing is 2k said jordan was going to be the only 99 ovr so Wilt should be 98 at most. Though 2k could go back on their word. So much for nerfing myteam.

    1

    The fact that Wilt was a better all-around player than Jordan but 2K doesn't like to admit it. Both Kobe and Wilt should be 99's. Anyway good card.

    Especially in his 100 point game but because Jordan basically controls the media, there is no contest for the goat conversation. Wait, here he is at my door now to bash me for saying he's not the goat.

    Are the two badges microwave and volume shooter contradictory?

    0

    Nope, volume shooter means the player is accustomed to shooting a lot every game and will go cold if not used, but get hot if used, even if they aren't making everything, whereas microwave means they can get hot quickly, like sometimes I'll win the jump, quickly pass it ahead and jam it and the player will be on double momentum the next possession.

  • 0

    I still wish kobe didn't get one of those cheesy tbt cards life JR and Crawford. Let's be honest Kobe never had a season where he deserved a 95 three pointer. Maybe games where he deserved it tho. This should be a moments card. IMO this is just disrespectful. Putting Kobe next to Luis Scola.

    I don't know if you saw it, but he just passed Jerry West and he is second all-time on assists in Lakers history, LAKERS HISTORY the team who already had some great passers and its one of the top 3 basketball teams of all-time.

    But he`s not as good a passer as Lebron, or close for that matter. Plus he`s played more games than anyone else in Lakers history
