    Night Mare ???? Kobe sacrifice an Achilles to get his team to the playoffs and lbj didn’t cause he didn’t have to😂 he got his shitty team to the finals by dominating everyone. Dude you just used a stupid comparison lmao

    DannyBoy33 Mc 1 on 1? Lebron is way to physically superior to love. And his skills are at Kobe’s level. Skill wise Kobe is better by a bit but the athletic difference is too notable. Kobe couldn’t guard him and lbj could guard Kobe. It’s just common sense.

    Notorious1503 well obviously because all Kobe did for the lakers they are going to say that he is better and probably the best ever but Lebron is still better

    Minus Kobe the 2005-2006 Lakers had a worse roster than this 2019 team and went 45-37 and all the way to the WCF’s. Kobe was an absolute killer competitor and never stood around and watched like LeBron..

    @Will Richardson You are nothing more than a Kobe dickrider if you think he is better than LeBron.

  • SkankHunt42  an hour ago

    @Will RichardsonKobe would of lost against the Warriors in the finals. Oh wait, he wouldn't have taken the Cavs to the finals because there is no Phil Jackson to save him. Just stop it, Kobe wouldn't be 5-2 if he had taken LeBron's path. LeBron has the clutchest block in NBA history. What does Kobe have? An overrated 81 point game against a really weak defensive team. If LeBron was a scorer, then he would be without a doubt the greatest scorer ever. He is also going to surpass Kobe in points. That prov...

    Fucking idiot. LeBron is the best to have ever done it. He came back from a 3-1 lead against a 73-9 team and won. Not to mention that LeBron carried a lottery team to the finals twice. Without Shaq and the greatest coach of all time Kobe would have 0 rings.
