2Kobe BryantKobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. Kobe Bryant has won 5 NBA championships with the Lakers and is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history.
In terms of Pure Scoring Ability, I believe Kobe Bryant is the greatest Player ever to ever pick up a Basketball. If you take the time to really dissect and break down Kobe Bryant’s Offensive skillset, you should be able to see why he is the hardest player ever to guard. His combination of Speed, and uncanny incredible shooting ability enables him to improvise a countless number of moves in traffic from virtually anywhere on the court and still get his shot off before the defender can reach him. these traits are why he excels on the fastbreak and make him impossible to guard in 1 on 1 situations. This is why I believe that Kobe Bryant is the most unstoppable scorer and offensive presence of all time.

Strength+Shooting Ability+Post Game gives him the edge over almost anybody that guards him. This allows him to have the ability to make himself an offensive presence anytime he wants to. He can bully you in the post, and if that doesn’t work, he can use his size and body to shoot over you. Pure Scorer is just a word that describes Dirk Nowitzki.

D-Wade’s acrobatic ability allows him to create the shots he wants, plus his lightning quickness allows him to maneuver and shimmy his way into the paint with ease. Also, has an impeccable mid range shooting game, so he can score from virtually anywhere on the court.
Most fans do not know that he had the highest NBA season scoring average EVER by anyone not named Wilt Chamberlain. Elgin Baylor averaged 38.3 points per game in the 1961-62 season, compared with Michael Jordan's highest ever season average of 37.1. The problem was, that happened to be the year that Wilt averaged 50 points a game, and nobody ever bothers to check who came in SECOND.
One of only 5 NBA players to ever score 70 points or more in a game. Interestingly, Michael Jordan never did it!
Just one of a kind
