Didn't see this posted yet, was curious what people thought about Kobe being left off the list while Curry, LeBron, Shaq etc made it.

Not much, these so called journalists nowadays are just writing stuff just for clicks and controversy.

Absolute bull crap. Damn, this pisses me off -- no rhyme or reason to leave Kobe off of the list. Agree also with Tiger -- if you're leaving him off for his 'thing' why would you then keep Wilt.

Some folks in OT are saying some of those guys aren't "black". Ugh. Nothing good comes from these lists.

If nobody cared about opinions forums would be pointless.

Except that if you'd read the underlying article, you'd have learned that this was actually a survey that polled the general public. Journalists didn't choose this list - Survey Monkey users did.

"The Undefeated partnered with SurveyMonkey to poll the public on the 50 Greatest Black Athletes. In April, 10,350 adults were asked to rank 200 athletes on 20 different surveys. Respondents were asked how great of an athlete each person was/is using a scale of 1 to 10 stars. The athletes were ranked in order based on their average scores to form a top 50 list."
