When most of you read this title you will be thinking that Kobe is a far superior and polished NBA player. That may be the case, but that doesn't mean that he's the best player in the league. LeBron is a player that relies on brute force and athleticism to lead his way and win ball games. Kobe uses finess and skill. Dwayne Wade uses quickness, agility and athleticism. While some of you think that these players may be superior to LeBron, think again.

First off, who's the best supporting player that LeBron has ever had? A guy name Mo Williams, who can shoot when he's open and score a few buckets. He now has a washed up Shaq past his prime, but even that may be enough to win a title.

Who has Kobe had?

Shaq, in his prime. He now has Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, the best front court in the league. He also has Lamar Odom, and many veterans such as Derrick Fisher. Dwayne Wade has about the same level of supporters as LeBron, and that is why the Cavs are better than the Heat.

LeBron is a pass first player, unlike Wade or Kobe, and he makes his teammates better, which is why the Cavs had a whopping 66 wins last year. Without LeBron, Cleveland is nothing. Without Kobe, the Lakers can still be a decent team. And without the Wade, the Heat are nothing, but they aren't exactly a contender right now.

A lot of you are probably thinking by now that if LeBron is so great, then why hasn't he won a title. Well, right now LeBron is only 24 and if you recall, the great Michael Jordan was 28 when he won his first trophy. So LeBron is still on pace with the great one. I truly do believe that one of these years LeBron will emerge as the best player of all time, and we are all witnesses.
