    For those who think kobe is good or the best laker ever. Imagine and i mean seriously imagine if magic was on the lakers at any point in magics career. Magics last year in the league he had an old worthy, a rookie vlade divac and byron scott as shooting guard. Kobe is probably the 5 th best laker of all time. Magic, kareem, jerry west, worthy, then maybe kobe or elgin baylor.
