Kobe or Lebron?
« on: May 21, 2009, 09:04:34 PM »
The Conference Finals hasn't even reached Game 1 and THE HYPE MACHINE began. Kobe Or Lebron?



NBA Legend Jerry West weighed in, Vitamin Water and Nike too, with these hilarious Muppet ads:

Lebron "Cocaine is a helluva drug"
MVPs - Kobe & Lebron Puppets on Coke

Kobe aka Cookie Monster:
Kobe Bryant and Lebron James Puppet Commercial:Kobe Lost His Championship Rings

UNSTOPPABLE!!!!
Nike Basketball MVPuppets - Unstoppable


... so who is better KOBE OR LEBRON?!

Debate away! Talk smack about skill, personality, paychecks, etc.

I love 'em both. Kobe is def on top if you look at past achievements. What he done as a whole is pretty much epic. Hats off. Currently however. I'd give the edge to Bron. He's pretty much unstoppable. Gotta give it to him.

BUT! You know what the real truth is. Fuck 'em both. There's only room for one guy. My boy Wade. He eats Kobe's for lunch and shits Bron's for dinner. Anyone feel otherwise can kindly unzip my pants and enjoy the fine taste of greek schlong.

Nuff said. ;)

I'm not an NBA fan (i.e. I watch "Inside the NBA" just to see if Barkely will say something funny). 

That said, I voted for LeBron.  He's younger, prolly more marketable, more appealing, and more upside potential.  LeBron is only 24 or 25 but damn he's been in the NBA for what seems like a LONG time and he has the aura of a veteran presence.

OT: Kobe is fun to watch in highlight clips too but boy there's a LOT of people out there who hate him.  I wonder how Bill Simmons (ESPN.com's "Sports Guy") is going to profile him in his upcoming NBA tome?

I've always been more of a Kobe fan, but I gotta put my hands up and say at the moment James is the Man..
He's numbers speak for themselves.
I think Kobe as a whole has improved to a more team player, but when the going gets tough, he reverts back to his old ways, and that means a stat like 35 points with 1 assist...
U will win a scoring title like that but not a championship ^^

If i had to form a team around a player it would have to be LeBron.  And its not only because of his in-game skills but also what he does when he's off the court.  Dude seems mad chill and funny and just overall a cool guy, someone you would enjoy to be around.Like this for example.  Even tho they're a pro team it seems like they can just mess around with him and vice-versa, they kinda look like just a bunch of highschool buddies playing ball Lol.


Respect for both of em  :thumbsup

LOL they working hard taking down Vitamain Water ads:



Comparing Kobe in his Legendary Prime is like comparing Larry Bird/Magic Johnson to a Michael Jordan losing and losing to the Pistons. Will they win titles? Who knows about Lebron.

Quick numbers:

  • Kobe has played in 948 games

    MJ played in 930 games (Chicago)

    Magic played in 874 games (Pre-comeback)
    Karl Malone played in 1476 games

    Kareem in an incredible 1560 games.

and

Quote
Kobe became only the 2nd player in NBA history to drop 500 or more points 4 times in a single post-season.

The other? Jordan.

I like them both, really do. But Kobe all the way. You try to downplay Kobe's 3 rings. Until Lebron gets a ring, Kobe will be the best player in the NBA without question. And even if Lebron does get that ring, unless Lebron makes leaps & bounds in playing ability, Kobe most likely will stay as the NBA's best until he retires.

After seeing the Cavs get pretty effectively wiped out by the Magic, I feel a lot better about voting for Kobe.

I appreciate Lebron's freakish athleticism for what it allows him to do.  Kobe himself thinks some of that stuff is plain ridiculous.  I will not deny that Lebron's avg stats have been better than Kobe's, and all those who say Lebron > Kobe will be the first to bring that fact up.

What kind of gets me though, is that the same people will then also say Lebron does all this with less talent on his team.  To me, the two facts are completely related.  BECAUSE he has less talent on his team, his stats HAVE to be higher for the team to be at a competitive level.  From what I understand, their entire offense runs through the man.  No surprise then to me that he has higher PPG and APG than Kobe.  As for RPG, I just want to say "shooting guard vs. forward".  Is it easier to dominate your team's stat sheet when you're a great player on a so-so team or a great player on a good team?  i.e. would Lebron have the same numbers if he had an in-his-prime Shaq on his team?  I don't think so.

That's why I say you can't go just by the numbers here.

What about defense?  Sure, Lebron's picked up his D by leaps and bounds since last year, but that's only after he saw the Black Mamba put on his boa constrictor act in the Olympics.  Kobe's been All-Defensive first or second team 9 years out of his 13.  That's only 3 years as a starter that he hasn't been All-Defensive selection.  Meanwhile, Lebron has had 5 out of 6 years.

Just comparing the two right now is made harder by so many factors: differences in age, body type, position, team composition, etc.  But until Lebron's achievements and not just his stats surpass Kobe's, Lebron might even gain the title of "Best in the NBA", but Kobe will have "Greatest in the NBA" for a looong time. (MJ notwithstanding)

:lol:

Lil Dez Has a Word With LeBron About D12

People hate Kobe because he wants to be like Jordan. Did he jack his number? jack his chalk powder routine? Does he continually fail to be the most popular athlete in the world? If Kobe did what Lebron did, abandon his teammates at the press conference, he woulda been lynched.

Quote
LeBron doesn’t want to win more than Michael Jordan did, but Jordan could stop and shake a winner’s hand. Magic Johnson and Larry Bird could, too. Julius Erving did. Kobe Bryant(notes). Isiah Thomas led a walkout after losing to the Chicago Bulls after winning two NBA titles, but Joe Dumars never followed him. He stayed and shook Jordan’s hand, the way Jordan had always shook his when the Pistons had beaten him.
