First of all, no disrespect to 'Bron Bron but, Kobe is simply the best.
You can tell by the picture, LeBron have his head down while Kobe's walking tall.
Anyway, lets get to the REAL facts. Like I said in the beginning, no diss to LeBron, I like him a lot he's one of the best players today...matter of fact, he's second to the Mamba.
Fact one: James cannot shoot the ball to save his life. when its crunch time, he starts jacking up long jumpers including three's where he knows better. I will give him one thing, he has the most hops i have ever seen...even higher than Mike.
But who cares about who can jump the highest, this is not the Olympics. Another thing that I noticed is that he get a lot of calls that should go the other way or not called at all. He's always hacking somebody, or running them over. He's a poor free throw shooter, like 70 percent or something.
The guy does have a lot of upside. LeBron is a freak of nature: 6-8, 270 something pounds, probably a 4.4 in the forty, and has a vertical leap of 1,000! He goes strong to the hole whenever he feels like it, some nights when he's feeling it, the jumper is looking better NOT GREAT, but better.
I said all that to say this, he is no match for the great one. Let me tell you a little bit about Kobe "Jellybean" Bryant: 6-6, a lean 205 pounds, a million basketball I.Q. next to Michael, he's the closest thing to him.
Kobe is one of the most clutch players any sport have ever seen.
He is only 30 years old. A 13 year veteran, 11 time all-star, three time All-Star game MVP, 1997 Slam-Dunk champ, holds half of the record for most three-pointers in a game with 12, alongside Donyell Marshall, multiple scoring titles, five NBA Finals appearance (won three NBA titles), and the reigning 2008 NBA MVP.
Bryant holds the second greatest scoring performance.
In 2006, he scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors. I think Kobe is easily one of the top ten scorers of all time.
Also, in 2006, he became the first player to score 50 plus points in four straight games. Kobe's no slouch on the defensive side either. He's on the All-Defensive team just about every year.
Don't forget, Bryant is the one who taught little bron bron how to play defense this past summer in the Beijing Olympics.
Kobe Bryant is the most complete player in today's game...he got a mid-range game, he can shoot the three, free-throws, and gets to the basket whenever he wants. Bottom line is, Kobe is going to score on you and he's going to shut down your game and there's nothing you can do about it.
Oh yeah, by the way LeBron James, what in the world is a "Crab Dribble?"
