All of you out there probably debate with your friends who is better, Kobe or LeBron. I personally am a LeBron fan and in this article I can give a few reasons why LeBron is better. 


Younger, but Stronger

Despite LeBron being so young, he has been able to put up points as well as, if not better than, Kobe. He has been able to prove every time that he has the maturity to be the best.

He has stopped Kobe on many nights rejecting Kobe's dunks and blocking his shots. Kobe has not been able to stop LeBron on offense, though. So there's one reason why LeBron is better than Kobe.



Another reason LeBron is better than Kobe is LeBron is a better dunker.

Kobe's dunks are at the most okay, but LeBron's dunks are simply amazing. LeBron has had many dunks make highlights on ESPN, TSN, etc., because he is a great dunker.

As for Kobe, I haven't seen one of his dunks make highlights. I mean, some of them do, but he's just not that good at them.

LeBron is just better than Kobe at dunks. And that's another reason LeBron is better.


Pass-First Mentality

The amazing thing about LeBron James is he puts up all these high numbers even though he thinks pass first.

He's not like the other big point players who all think "oh, I'm gonna go in all by myself." He thinks, "if I see a player open I'm gonna get it to him and let him get some points as well."

That's one of the reasons people love playing with LeBron James. Kobe is not a man that thinks pass first, he's the other type of player I mentioned, that just wants to do everything himself.

So that's another reason LeBron is better than Kobe.


So I say LeBron is better. How about you?
