Today I went to a Kobe Tour in Seoul, Korea and one of the fan's questions were who will surpass him.
The whole stadium was screaming the obvious choices of Rose, Wade, Lebron, Howard however Kobe answered with the New York Knick's Carmelo Anthony. I know that it's Korea, and no one really knows much about the NBA, or basketball in general, but the reaction of the crowd was shock. Honestly, so was I. Kobe's reason for Melo becoming his succesor was Melo's offensive versatility. However, will Kobe's theory be right and after he retires will the torch end up being passed on to Melo?
Also, the tour was amazing. Although I know that Kobe doesn't really try, he totally failed a pass off the rebound for a dunk, completely missed a reverse, and got hardcore pumpfaked by a 14 year old.
