Kobe averages 5 boards and 5 a.ssists so to say because in one game he only had 3 and 1 that he doesn't do anything but score is absurd. Not many players in leauges history were able to drop 25, 5, 5 so lets not act like Kobe's stats are sh*t because LeBron gets a few more plays a game or because Jordan made one more shot a game.

And defense can't be measured in statistical form. So to knock Kobe's defense is plain dumb. He guarded D Wade every minute they played together and Wade finished 16 points on 17 shots, is that not defense? Kobe guarded Rondo, Pierce and Allen depending on the situation. Guarded Billups, Mello, and JR Smith to beat Denver in the WCF. Russell Westbrook who was giving the Lakers fits, Kobe got on him OKC never won another game in that series. That's a pretty diverse list of guys, and 3 amazing players in the same game switching off to who's ever doing the best at the time, and Russell Westbrook one of the most explosive athletes to ever play point guard. And that's only in the last 3 years. Come on Kobe's an elite defender. Sure he takes nights off against the likes of Wesley Johnson, but Kobe always locks in and gives it his all against great teams/wing players. Again to make downplay Kobe's defense is absurd.

Having a rival adds greatness to both sides. LeBron teaming up with Wade hurt him in that regard that he's playing with the 2nd best player of his era, even though the KD's and Rose's are crossing into that era. Just like Bird will always be a bit overrated(in my opinion) because he'll be attached to Magic. Kobe's lack of a rival hurts him, but he does have the Lakers legacy to left him up(which it indeed does)
Just wondering, why do you think bird was overrated?

Its crazy how n*ggas hate on Kobe's defense like Mike was out there guarding the other teams best player. That honor went to scottie and Rodman and Horace. Mike might occasionally slide over to play them but it wasnt all game. Kobe has had to guard the other teams guy just about all of his career and worry about scoring/making plays until they signed Artest at the end of his career.

This article presented no facts at all, just a long opinionated bait article so people can continue to click on his website to read more. Whitlock is great at drawing in the masses with his baiting and again it worked here.

Bird is overated though. I don't think he's better than Lebron or Kobe as an individual player

Let's be real for a second. If Lebron ended his career with 3 titles, is he top 10 all time?

If Lebron won 3, I'd believe he'd be top 10 and he'd be better than Kobe, no matter how many titles Kobe has won. Lebron is just better than Kobe at everything besides scoring, but they're not so far off.

I didn't even read it. The first sentence says the hate of Lebron counts for more than the 5 rings Kobe has.

Really? :wtf:

Is clutch something that can be measured? And all stats say Lebron as a scorer > Kobe as a scorer.

He's better than Jordan at everything except scoring too, and he'll never be better than him either cause those two have intangibles that Lebron could never have.

Another thing is if Bron wins all his rings with Wade and Bosh it's not as impressive as Kobe winning two with Pau and Lamar Odom.

People love to discredit Kobe for being on a team with Shaq so I don't see why it wouldn't apply to Bron too.

BTW Bron is not a BETTER scorer than Kobe in his prime. Up until this year Lebron's jumper was wildly inconsistent and most of his shots came from bumrushing the lane and shots from inside 15 ft. He still has ugly footwork,lacking a consistent postgame and is not a good 3 point shooter he just doesn't shoot 3's so his FG% is inflated. He has improved his J but he still relies on his power and speed for the bulk of his points.

Kobe in his prime was probably the best one on one player ever. Dude was lethal from every spot on the floor,had amazing footwork,post game that rivals Jordans,hit three's from anywhere,hook shots,dunks,evasive layup against triple teams etc...

Lebron is better all around as a team player but his best offensive night wouldn't crack Kobe's top 15.
