Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin

Don’t call him Slim Reaper.

The Equalizer Part 2: Cutthroat Kobe Bryant

Kobe Bryant, LeBron James

He’s 35, but he isn’t that far removed from his fifth championship. In spite of his travails last season, Kobe Bryant represents a purely killer instinct that does not abate even after reflecting on the vestiges of prior failures. The Black Mamba is our second in a three-part series where we’ll give you the NBA stars who best represent an “Equalizer,” a person and a player who levels the playing field so everyone gets a fair shake. There aren’t many players capable of navigating the various obstacles blocking the bath to equanimity in the most dire of on-court situations, but our three Equalizers certainly fit the bill — both on and off the court. Nobody is steeped in the characteristics of an equalizer more than Kobe, perhaps the most reptilian of our choices, a man who will coldly do whatever it takes to get a victory. Read More »
