Excellent Card, R.I.P Kobe

Written by Simrog02

Just purchased this card in honor of Kobe and because he has very impressive stats, and I must say I have not been disappointed. This card can basically do it all, and playing with him warms my heart because it honors him in a way.

Bought for: 100,000 MT

Strengths:

  • Inside scoring: Absolute monster when driving to the hole, and has very good dunk animations. Good free throw and decent draw foul as well.
  • Shooting: Has a very smooth and quick release, easy to time, and has out of this world shooting stats when paired with the right coach. Hall of Fame Difficult Shots is also a nice touch, with all the important gold shooting badges
  • Defense: Absolutely locks down any guard, with HOF Clamps, Off-Ball Pest, and Tireless Defender, and helps your entire team with HOF Defensive Leader.

Weaknesses:

  • Rebounding: Only 6'6", some larger shooting guards are out there, but hopefully you've built your team in such a way that you don't need your shooting guard to get a significant amount of rebounds.
  • Passing: Average passing stats, but who wants Kobe to pass anyways? You want him taking every shot possible.
  • Post Fade: 84, but Kobe deserves higher. Doesn't matter too much anyways since they aren't very effective this year.

Recommended Strategy: Take it to the hoop any way possible. Shoot often and open. Make sure to take advantage of this card's insane offensive potential, and enjoy his defensive abilities

Examples: N/A

Other Comments: I recommend using the throwback Lakers jerseys from when Kobe was in his prime.

Use if: You want to honor a legend by using a card that holds it's own very well against some of the best in the game.

Don't use if: You're on a budget and want someone with a little more affordability.

Bottom Line: FUN card that gets the job done better than most.
