I could pretty much use all of your arguments that you say about Lebron and use for Kobe.
Hughes was never good with the with Cavs he was always missing games and then his game regressed and it was a joke that he was 1st team defense because all he did was gamble on the steal. He is not a good man defender and racking alot of steals doesnt make you a good defender (I hope you knew that). Lamar has regressed when he came to the lakers and then he was always deferring to Kobe. But in the Lakers first year without Shaq they had a winning record under Rudy T but when he left everything went downhill from that but a great player like Kobe shouldnt let that happen but it did. ALso in that same year Caron and Lamar played great when Kobe was hurt and I am pretty sure they had a pretty good record in his absence not to mention Chucky Atkins game stepped up.
Andy V and Sasha only started to step up their game last year and dont try and say Donyell name like he was a factor in Cleveland because that guy is just a spot up shooter and a streaky one at that.
And you say Lebron holds on to the ball alot which is why is teammates are liabilities. What do you think Kobe was doing is whole time their after Shaq left and before this, he defenitely was creating for others.
Your logic is horrible. I also said teammates shouldnt matter in the discussion because they were on sh*tty teams but Lebron made the most of it with what he had. Despite how easy his road to the finals was He still got there which is way more than you can say about Kobe who chocked in the series against the Suns.
The Lakers were a handful of games over .500 with Rudy T, what the fu*k is your point? The Lakers were also 26-13 last year before finishing the season 16-27. It takes a team to win games, but I guess an idiot like yourself hasn't figured that out yet. That year, not a single starter apart from Kobe returned to the Lakers. They were left with a handful of players that were averaging close to a COMBINED 20ppg.
And you saying that Lebron's teammates are "sh*tty" is completely subjective with no basis whatsoever to back up your claims. I'm sure Lebron had a tough time last year having to overcome Gooden and Ilgauskas averaging double-doubles in the EC playoffs, and having the highest scoring bench in the playoffs.
And don't compare the Eastern conference playoffs to the Western Conference playoffs. Golden State would have made the finals out of the East. This year is even more of a representation of how horrible the East really is. And if you classify 33, 6.5, 4, ~55% shooting in the last 3 closeout games of that series "choking", then so be it.
