People that like Kobe are gonna make their Kobe case, people that like LeBron are gonna make their LeBron case, people that like basketball are gonna call it how they feel/see it.
I'm a Kobe fan, BUT 1st I'm a basketball fan, 2nd a Laker fan. There's no players or teams I dislike (except Smush, Luke and Gasol), so I don't root against anyone if it isn't my team they're playing. I TRY to keep my emotions outta sports and just call it how I see it. LBJ is one of my favorites, def all around better. BUT, there's something Kobe has that makes up for what he doesn't do that LBJ does. So to me it's all preference. Anyone saying one is so much better than the other is crazy. ANY team would be happy with EITHER players' NBA career. If Kobe played for your favorite team, you'd love him, and the same for LeBron. Neither is perfect, neither is Jordan, but 2 of the best ever.
To me, scoring titles and MVP's and titles mean little. I just go by what I see. I never held it against Lebron for not winning, just for coming up short HIMSELF. Same with Durant, don't blame him for losing, I blame him for not being aggressive like he can. Don't mind a player missing, just don't freeze up. He got alot of heat (no pun intended) because we've never seen a player that talented (prob AROD) that seemed to crumble at the most important times. Also, and this is for any player, you may be on the weaker team, but it comes down to what did you do at a particular moment. Tied score, 4th qtr, ball in your hands, it doesn't matter who's weaker, it's what did you do at THAT moment. So, I don't care if Kobe has 50 if he scuffs up late in games. When he has 37 and turns it over on the final possession, that's all that matters. I'll prop him for playing good, but ultimately it comes down to winning, and both players LEAD teams to wins very well.
One more thing, people act like winning a title is easy. Kobe has played 16 years and has 5, so 11 yrs he came up short. LBJ 8yrs(or 9), 1 title, Wade, 2 titles, Duncan 4 titles, 15yr vet(or whatever), Shaq had 4 in a long career. Unless you're Bill Russell, you lose more than you win.
