In today's NBA, it's clear there are two players that stand above the rest.  Obviously those two would be Kobe Bryant and LeBron James.

That being said, am I the only one tired of hearing about which one is better?  Who cares!

They are both very good, and both do different things for their teams.  LeBron has better numbers, but that also has a lot to do with his team being less offensively talented from top to bottom.

I wouldn't be able to pick, and no one will ever agree on which one is better.  Kobe is a much better shooter, but LeBron is a better passer and rebounder.

I am a huge basketball fan, but I am so tired of every sports show and every pregame doing nothing but talking about them.  There is a lot more going on in the NBA than just these two.

It's just like Brett Favre.  The sports media jumps on that and won't let go, no matter what.  This is the same thing.

They each have their own specials, Kobe has his own Spike Lee documentary.  I can only imagine that a LeBron one is in the works.  They are both in the same Vitamin Water commercials and the same Nike commercials.

There are two other very good players still going in the playoffs, Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard.  There are no commercials with them in it.  Why?

Yes, Kobe and LeBron are very good, the two best.  But come on, let it go so we can hear about something else that's going on in the NBA for once.
