    I can see them use him in the middle, I think his headers could be very strong at 6'6 center forward

    Y'all gotta start taking off your modern day NBA-colored glasses when comparing to real heights listed in other sports. Europe's height gets down to the nearest centimeters, for instance. Same thing with comparing today's heights to pre-80s nba.

    Bryant's wife, Vanessa, was there and had prodded him by saying she suspected the same thing — and measured her husband at home one day at 6-4 3/4

    Kobe himself say he's 6'5 in shoe.

    They say international ball, particularly Europe, has better officiating in the NBA. Kobe might want to test that out before it's all said and done.

    Goalkeeper. They'll want elite Kobe defense.
