40 years ago? Considering black players were only allowed in the league starting in 51, and that was just a few for the next 15 years or so, i would dispute your claim, and i would also claim athletes today are faster, taller, stronger etc etc. To shrug Kobe off because of the era he is playing in is ridiculous, he would be a prolific scorer in ANY era. He has a deeper all around game then Jordan at both ends of the floor, basically he can do it all. To even dispute that is nonsense imo.
