Coming from a laker fan I think it's finally time to say Kobe isn't the best in the league night in and night out anymore. Dude is old and has lost a step or two. Lebron is the king of the regular season and that's fine. Come playoff time I'll still take Kobe over lebron because we've all seen how good lebron is in the playoffs.

In other news, KC Jones thinks Larry Bird was the best player in the 80's
and Pat Riley thinks that Magic Johnson was the best player of the 80's



I get tired of all the "who is the best" arguments. Maybe I've had them so many times that I realize that there really is no clear answer. SOmetimes it is fun to discuss all the reasons and factors, but after a while, it is just futile and solves nothing.

So now, we don't even get discussion, just a bunch of
"Kobe is the best, deal with it"
"Lebron is the best and you all are haters"


One of the best arguments I ever heard was done by Wilt Chamberlain, and don't even like him, but he said something along these lines (not a direct quote)

I heard that Michael Jordan was asked if he is the greatest player ever and in a moment of honesty, he said "yes". I understand Michael being honest and if he thinks he is the greatest in his mind, then I don't have a problem with him being honest. But, I think that is a very presumptuous admition and that he isn't considering the history of the game. I don't think he can seriously say he is the greatest without considering that when I played, the league made rules to keep me from dominating. 3 seconds in the key, no dunking...while in MJ's time, the league has made rules to allow him to dominate more. Hand checking and other things.

Wilt didn't say he was the greatest, just that there are other things to look at and he had a good point.

I guess you're not aware that in crunch times, LeBron dominates Kobe in statistics while Kobe has literally given the Lakers a LOSING record in the last 2 years.

Kobe is -13 in the final 5 minutes of games where there's less than 5 points differential between the teams.

Yeah, it's called having the best supporting cast that is bailing you out.

But apparently you didn't watch the playoffs last year.

EDIT: Jerry and Magic both said James was the better player. Then Kobe choked in the playoffs and his supporting cast beat the Celtics while James put up better numbers against the Celtics but lost because his supporting cast is a joke(hence the worst record in the East). So some how that puts Kobe on top. Lawl at listening to an AIDS phaggot jealous that James is the better 'point forward' and Jerry trying to give confidence to his poor Kobe that hasn't played well in a big game in years.

When West and Magic said James was the best, they were idiots.

Then Kobe fails, has declined, played worse against the Celtics than James did, continues his negative +/- in crunch times, is playing horrible right now but blaming it on his teammates and not his 30% FG and 2 assists a night, and West/Magic change their minds.

Because of ^^^, they are now right.

Gotta love Kobe fanboys. Flame the Heat for playing terrible in their first dozen games together horribly, then flame them for donating to charity, flame James for what the biggest Laker icons said about him(being the best in the league), and then make excuses as to why the Lakers are playing bad and the Heat well, and loving West and Magic now that they claim Kobe to be the best.

A lot of non-sense hypocrites OTF.

lol if you think he's not getting that many in just the next 4 years...Lebron is having fun out there, making hundreds of millions, playing ball with his friends and getting paid while doing it, racking up triple doubles like it ain't no thang, and will retire with like 8 rings minimum...he's about team glory not individual accolades
