I know This Is the Most debatable question But You think is the best kobe or lebron...I think kobe but lebron is getting their holla at me with your points
Kobe hands down. He's got 10 years on James and is still playing as good or better than James on any given night. Let's see if James is still as good in 10 years as he is now.
I think Janes is a better player due to the fact he has better passing, rebounding, and seems to be a better teammate. Kobe has a better shot and more experience than LeBron. I still say Lebron is better than Kobe just look at who is more valuable to the team and who does more. LeBron gets the nod.
Kobe is a better scorer but he shoots more than lebron. Lebron shoots a better % and has better career averages. Lebron is stronger faster bigger more athletic a better passer harder to guard because of those reasons. Last season the celtics managed to if it's possible stop Kobe and they had no answer for lebron he just had no help. Kobe does have three rings but he shaq and Robert horry to thank for those. When it's all said and done lebron and jordan will stand alone.
My answer to a question like this comes down to-
If at any given time I need a basket and I could pick any player in the league for the shot (create it and make it)?
If I could pick any given player to defend that same shot?
For me, It's Kobe
LeBron is nice, but until I know the game can rest in his hands, I'll take Kobe.
brother, how many times do i have to give you the numbers before you realize that Lebron is, in fact, better in these situations? in this case perception is not reality. i know Kobe is perceived as the ultimate clutch performer, but when one takes the time to really look at the evidence, it is not so.
Everyone has their own definitions, but in that 3-year period of utter dominance for Shaq (2000-2002), I think it would be agreed that he was the best player in the leage by most people, or even the following year with Duncan. Would you argue that you would A) pick those guys to create their own shots at the end of a game, or B) that they weren't the best players in the League in those respective years ...
You need to learn that stats aren't everything. They don't entail the entire situation, so don't assume you can make a fair argument from them. Just remember that Kobe gets "His Shot" better than anyone in the league and I'm comfortable with that. Statistically speaking, I'm 1/1 in my career, so would you take me?
gets "his shot". yeah, but he doesnt make his shot. what part of the situation do the stats not tell? he creates the shot and he misses it...there are a ton of guys in the league with a large sample size and a much higher success rate...so why wouldn't you want them taking the shot? i'm guessing its because Kobe is one of your favorite players...not because he's actually the best man for the job.
Actually I chose Kobe because he hits tough shots. Your stats don't tell if, its an open attempt, create shot, in transition, off turnover, how open the shooter, these circumstances could go on and on. So overall out of any situation, I would pick the player who could best do all of these in my eyes. Kobe. Stop drinking your "Haterade".
I'd trust Lebron or D-Wade to 1) find the open man, 2) draw a foul, 3) get to the hoop
I'd pick Kobe if I had to 1) hit a contested jumper or a "tough shot"
I'd pick Ray Allen to 1) run off a screen for a 3-pter
Personally, I'd rather someone not have to shoot a tough shot in the final possession. That's why we have 5 players on the floor.
However, let's continue to try and remember that the last possession of a 0-3 point game counts for about 0.01% of an entire NBA season, and is not an accurate measure of the best player in the league.
LeBron got every call possible when driving last night and he passed up an opportunity to finish at the rim (which would've required him to hit free throws, but he can't so he passed) for a teammate to win it. Thats while I'll take Kobe, he uses what he gets. He was getting similar calls in first game against Nuggets, so he kept driving and MADE his free throws "like a Champ". LeBron is an amazing talent, it's just stats don't tell everything, and last night proved it. I'm sure LeBrons PER was off the charts, but he was to scared to have to make his free throws. You guys will never understand this, and I've excepted that, but we all know the truth (and I'm not talking Pierce either).
u won the argument.....hands down
Kobe is better.
Lebron may have better stats, but he is not as skilled as Kobe. He overly relies on his physical abilities too.
Lebron scores 40+ pts on 12-30 shooting... that does not impress me. That doesn't include all the points he gets from the foul line.
Anyone that has played organized basketball knows that if a star teammate does not share the ball, the team gets out of sync. Regardless of how a great a shooter one is, if it's the 4th quarter and a player hasn't been involved in the offense since the first half, he won't make the shot with 3 minutes to go in the 4th. This refers to Lebron's ISO plays for the entire 4th quarter. His teammates are great, but if are not in sync with the offense, they are ice cold and won't make plays down the stretch. If Lebron's jumpshot is consistent, then the Cavs will win... but if it doesn't fall its over... Hence the Orlando series.
Kobe does a great job of facilitating his teammates. The Lakers have better big-men, but the Cavs have superior guards. The Cavs also have a better bench. People shouldn't blame Lebron's teammates for their defeat, but rather that he hogged the ball and iced his teammates.
How can you say LeBron is a ballhog? Kobe hogs the ball more than anyone in the NBA, hes not a great facilitator, its impossible to be when you take 35 shots a game. I think LeBron is the better player because at the end of the game you dont know what hes going to do. If Kobe gets the ball at the end of the game you know hes going to make a hard drive, create separation, give you the pump fake to try and trick you, and then shoot the jumper. If LeBron gets the ball you dont know if hes going to pass it, drive it, or shoot it because hes thinking about how to get his team a win not how to get himself a look. Kobe is a better scorer than LeBron but LeBron is the better overall player.
Lakers do have better big men but to say the Cavs have better guards and a better bench is ridiculous. Odom could outscore the entire Cavs bench by himself. Are you really going to say Wally, Boobie, Sasha, and Big Ben/Varejao are great off the bench? Cavs maybe have better guards but their lack of size in the backcourt really kills them at times
LeBron is the biggest ball hog EVER. Every play nearly runs through him, he often times dribbles out nearly the entire clock before shooting or passing. LeBron is a BALLHOG, Kobe takes SHOTS (IDK, shothog maybe?, huge difference. Check the definitions of words before you make ill advised comments.
The only time lebron dribbles out the whole clock is in the fourth quarter where his teammates decide to bring out the folding chairs and juiceboxes and watch him play 1 on 5. As far as biggest ballhog ever? for someone whos only been in the league 5 seasons thats pretty impressive but i think that title still goes to mark jackson. lebron is the superstar of the cavs why wouldnt most plays run through him? thats like saying the lakers dont run most of their plays through kobe. And since the end result of an offensive play is either a shot or a turnover whats the difference between being a ballhog and dribbling out the whole clock and then shooting as opposed to being a shothog and taking every shot if it produces the same result?
