of course he’s gonna choose his clone.
MJ’s right again…..LBJ has skills but he doesn’t have Kobe’s heart or will to win. Plus I think MJ respects Mamba more
feels like the whole world is against lebron after that decision huh. i think it woulda been aight if this nigga didnt go out and make a whole TV special about “the decision”. he shoulda just done what every other regular athlete would do and just let SC announce it. this guy is so fucking arrogant and got his head stuck up his own ass, no wonder why ppl hate him.
The real King has spoken…
ummm dwayne wade is more of a jordan clone than kobe. Everytime i see wade play i forget its not jordan.
I feel like there should be more to the question. Lebron is 7 yrs in the game Kobe @ like 13. Lebron has achieved more (outside if rings) then Kobe did at 25. But b/c we value players rings so much, he moved on. The Cavs shoulda tried to build a better team around LBJ. They didn’t so he left. He gave 7 yrs. Kobe got a ring 4 but he also had a squad. Jordan in 7 but he had Pippen & Grant… I’m sure MJ had reasons I’d just love to hear them. Saw on Twitter sum1 said “you may not see yourself as a slave but that doesn’t mean sum1 else doesn’t see themselves as a slavemaster” Nobody owns LBJ let him live!!!
Can’t argue with the best player to ever lace them up. Kobe has 2 rings as the undisputed leader of his team, with probably 2 more to come. Lebron will have NONE!
good call by MJ..
Let’s see the Kobe haters debate this. Straight from the mouth of the greatest.
“thats why im easy,im easy like sunday morning” lionel richie
Lebron could have been the best but Kobe’s heart and will to compete make him better. Lebron lost that. A true competitor always puts tries their hardest. Lebron in the Celtics series…he gave up after a while. Kobe in Game 7…never gave up even though they were down the majority of the game. By the end he had nothing left…nothing left but the trophy.
Kobe is a better player then Lebron. Lebron probably won’t go down as the greatest player ever but top 10 all time. I hate when people bring up game 7 of LA vs Celtics like thats the defining moment in Kobe’s career. If the lakers would have lost, Kobe would be blamed and this would be a whole another story.
@is that it?, boi stop. Even without rings, Kobe has been the best player for the past 7 years! Its Kobe had a sqaud? Yeah bc he stayed with the team he had. Gilbert and Ferry did what they could with the cap space they had. Hell he had Boozer in 04; he went to Utah. You wanted a descent supporting cast and they got em a few players they could afford. He needed more so they got em Jamison. How did he not have a supporting cast? James is perhaps physically better than Kobe, but Kobe is better mentally better in the game of basketball, which allows him to be 2 steps ahead of his oponents. Not to ability to close games. I don’t compare Lebron to Kobe cus that’s a joke. Give Lebron 13 yrs in the league and lets see where he stand when he can no longer jump over defender or chase one down. When his legs are 13 yrs old in the NBA. Kobe 6’6 and last season before the all-star break, he was in the top 5 in scoring in the post! Bron isn’t even better than Melo. Stop watchn the high flying dunks fam.
He want to win just like the other NBA players
you dudes need to stop using quotes from the media and learn to think for yourselves
Kobe is better because he won championships, that’s it. I hate Kobe, but you have to give him props
true talk lebron is a genetic freak but still cant hit clutch shots or have the heart. Oh yeah and fuck miami! lakers all day
U remember when Matt Barnes tried to make KOBE flinch with ball. Kobe just stood their smacking on his gum. Dude is on sumthin else when the game is on the line. Chris Rock couldnt take KOBE outta his zone. LETS GO LAKERS !!!
The sky is blue.
lol cosign siliccone
Everyone knows Kobe is more skilled than Lebron. But Lebron and D wade are gonna win rings. Imagine your team trying to play D on them. They are both impossibly fast Mia gonna win 3 rings but thats all
This is the same guy that thought Kwame Brown was going to be a all-star player. He likes Kobe better, because Kobe is a gunner like he was.
Wow…he really answered that question…I thought he was gonna say “I am better than both of them or something like that” hahaha
There you go. Official Cosign
@2-7 ALL DAY That was the most craziest shish i read out of all these post.
Kobe is dope and is probably close to Michael and he probably is in everbodys top 10. I know there are many Kobe lovers. But lets get real and get off his nuts.
Kobe, is great at trying to be like Mike. LBJ, is great at trying to be like Mike, Magic, Bird & Kobe. Kobe would have never taken the Cavs to the level Lebron did with the cast he had. Matter factly, Lebron would make Lakers better than what Kobe did. Lebron has always played with have nots and he has found ways to win. Lebrons IQ for basketball is just as great as Kobe and he has played less years in the league. Won’t even touch Melo being better than James…SMH!
The decision to play with Bosh and Wade is all about longevity. So yes, lets see where he is in 13 years.

KObe Bryant is way better then Lebron. He got the heart. Where the haters at. Keep hating. Lakers are going to win again!!!!!!!! BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lol Jordan answered that question in a blink of an eye. Wasn’t even debatable for him.
I know jordan is the greatest of all time but I disagree with him, kobe is a better scorer but that’s it! lebrons the better player overall,tha only reason people say kobe is because he has rings..which is dumb, they have nothing to do with individual talent..If that’s the case then robert horry is better than both kobe and jordan he has seven, clearly kobe has the better team..ron artest wins a couple big games in the post season but kobe gets all the credit.
even In game seven when he played terrible..he shot 6 for 25, they won and he got all the credit ..people were saying he kept them in the game with his rebounding and defense? lol smh , people claim he does it by himself but after they lost game 5 of the finals against the celtics this year..didn’t he call out his team saying “he needs more help” kobe is great no doubt there’s no denying that ..but it’s silly to think he won these last two rings by himself when clearly he had alot of help along the way, something lebron doesn’t get in the post season if he plays bad the whole team does , if kobe plays bad he has another superstar and good role players who can step up and take over.
all imma say is that this whole heat 3 kings crap got kobe hype im looking foward to seeing the kobe who won mvp a couple of seasons ago on the court this just gives him more fuel
@2-7 all day
what are you on? i’m referring to both of their first 7 years in the league. kobe and lebron, both by 25 yrs old. Lebron has achieved way more than kobe did (except for the rings) and had to take on a bigger role than kobe did (because he has less of a supporting cast).
i actually hate the best player debates because everyone has there favorites. the only reason that people feel michael jordan was the greatest ever is because he was the best player of his era. it got to the point where there was no one to compare him too. kinda like tiger woods (up until right now). as long as there are debates over who is better in any single era, he’ll never go down as the greatest ever. i don’t care how many rings he gets. look at Kareem Abdul Jabbar’s impressive career (6 rings as well and 19 All-Star Games) and Bill Russell (11 rings and has the Finals MVP award named after him) but who do we talk about? Michael Jordan.
Who actually thinks lebron is better than Kobe… u gotta b from miami 2 even b pondering thatWho actually thinks lebron is better than Kobe… u gotta b from miami 2 even b pondering that! LOL! also Kobe & Gasol doesnt equal Wade a James… FAIL!!? 2nd off, kobe didnt run 2 play with shaq or gasol. Jordon didnt run 2 play with pippen, rodman, or kukoc. Either way it was a good move for him/ the man thats actually playing and not typing away on a computer… lol!bullshit! LOL! Also Kobe & Gasol doesnt equal Wade a James… FAIL!!? 2nd off, kobe didnt run 2 play with shaq or gasol. Jordon didnt run 2 play with pippen, rodman, or kukoc. Either way you look @ it, it was a good move for lebron… the man thats actually playing and not typing away on a computer… lol!
and that’s not to bash kobe or lebron. or to say that Michael Jordan isn’t the greatest of that time in my opinion. but that’s really because in the 90s, he clearly was the greatest and no one could argue with me differently. even people who hated the bulls couldn’t disagree. but life isn’t a video game where i can have him match up with a player from the past, so the greatest EVER debate is kinda stupid to me.
That’s the end of this debate! Thanks mike
kobe is better now and lebron had the right players in clevland they were good enough he just quit in game 5 if he didnt he would of had a ring, he took the easy way out kobe is oficially the best as of thursday, lebron had a chance of being the best ever he ruined it
so mj… is the best???? i think oscar robison and kareem ohhh dont forget bill russle….. im a huge kobe fan because im a laker fan…. but i dont think u guys really know the history of basketball to say mj was the best ever to play the game!!! maybe the best of our generation but not the best ever GETDAFUCKOUTTAHEREWITDABULLSHIT!!!!!
f#%k you Jordan you are wrong
@is that it?
LeBron is better b/c hes acheieved more in 7 yrs than Kobe?! LOL Kobe and MJ didn’t even start their rookie seasons took them like 3-4 seasons then they got on. Hard to compare players when diff Era of basketball and LBJ went to a shit team so of course he has to be the playmaker. Jordan n Kobe had teammates who didnt flake like LBJ.
What you need to do is compare Durant vs LeBron, cuz Durant is more of a threat to being better than LBJ, even tho he already is in some aspects
It’s amazing that this is even debated. Lebron is hype. He is great but has not acheived greatness and now that he signed with Miami he never will. No matter what happens Wade will always have 1 more than Lebron. As far as Kobe: mentioning Lebron with Kobe is ridiculous. Lebron, Wade and everyone else in this era have not accomplished enough to be compared to Kobe. Kobe has landed into all time great status. He is top 5 of all time territiory now. Lebron is not even top 20 greatest players yet.
fuck outta here melo isnt better than lebron, he nice but he isnt dominant like lebron.
this is y Jordan? is right and I will break it down for non ballers or ppl who don’t know the game Lebron has major flaws in his game. He has no post game, no mid range jumper, sloppy footwork, and still has no clue how to use screens. His entire game revolves around powering his way to the basket using his freakish athleticism? (although his 3-point shot has improved these last two years). Kobe is the more complete & polished player and hence superior also by the time Kobe was 25 and going in to his 8th yr he had a decent post game had a good mid range game and had great? footwork when is LBJ gonna work on that
i didn’t mean to post that much but 3 hours ago Lebron has too many kinks he has to work out of his game before you can even compare him to Kobe. Talk about SLOPPY footwork (he always travels) but people don’t pay attention to details like that because they don’t know basketball they just look at stats and how many times you dunk in a game. Its an art to this game and? Lebron needs to work on his craft. And his on ball defense is weak. (help side hes solid and he is not clutch)
Kobe is #1 now, enough said….
