That's only a matter of months, besides Kobe won 3 rings by the time he was 23...Lebron is what, 27 now??
Let me guess, he had a great team and Shaquille O'neal right?
If that's the case, you can also make the counter-argument that his numbers are skewed for the same reason.
Because he had Phil Jackson?
If that's the case, you can also counter-argue that his numbers are skewed for the same reason.
If he was drafted to Charlotte like Lebron to Cleveland, and had a coach that isolated him 90% of the time he'd have better individual numbers. What make's Kobe's so special, is he was able to do it playing second fiddle in a system that wasn't focused on him.
you over analyzing what I said, lebron beat him to the mark by over a year kobe was 8 months younger starting, just saying to add it on. Calm it down mpls
It is useless comparing their rings from early in their career, I was just pointing out something about this thread, that kobe had a head start for the youngest to score x achievement.
