  • HEMINSANITY
    HEMINSANITY 3 months ago (edited) anonymous Lebron vs Kobe game is tied last 5 seconds who you gonna pass the ball to?
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @HEMINSANITY lebron. Not only has he made more playoff and regular season buzzer beater game winners, he can also pass and make the right play whereas kobe would just go head first into a brick wall. Besides, what good are the last 60 seconds if you aren't as good in the first 47 minutes? You can't make the case that lebron isn't a greater and better than kobe. He undoubtedly is. That has been no longer a debate since about 2014
  • HEMINSANITY
    HEMINSANITY 3 months ago (edited) anonymous you’ll pass it to lebron Hahahaha you must really a kobe hater. Lebron is an around player but when the game is on the line. They wouldn’t call him the mamba for no reason.
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago (edited) @HEMINSANITY no. Lebron is a better player, and despite the image the sports media has created for him, he is clutch. Game 7s, pushing his teams and putting up work in fourth quarters, etc. Teammates trusted in lebron more in situations like this than kobe because he's a better leader and team player. Guys like jr smith, tristan thompson were having great games facing elimination against gsw and such. People on the street tell you that kobe is the greatest they ever saw. Because kobe played in a way that made you feel a certain way. The truth is, he is not the goat, not from a legacy and not from a skill standpoint. He's overhyped. I feel weird saying that about a legend like him, but he isn't what the public say he is.
  • HEMINSANITY
    HEMINSANITY 3 months ago (edited) anonymous I’m not saying Kobe is the better player. I’ve seen them both play. I was only asking you one simple question who you gonna give the ball to ? On my opinion I will pass it to kobe because I’ve seen Kobe and Lebron how they perform in the last minute or clutch time. I didn’t even say Kobe is the 🐐.
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @HEMINSANITY lebron gets a bad rep during clutch for no reason. I'd give the ball to lebron because basketball has evolved since kobe's time and it isnt just about the shot anymore. Ive seen them both play btw

  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago (edited) @anonymous Kobe has the Most Game Winners in NBA History. Kobe also never left his team or needed 2+ All Stars to win Rings. Kobe has also beaten the most 50+ Win Teams in Playoffs History even beating a Celtics team who still to this day is regarded as one of the greatest Defensive team of All Time with 3 All Stars & potentially 4 Hof's. Kobe did that with only 1 All Star on his roster Gasol & a broken shooting finger. I run a Basketball page on Facebook & I have broken down both of Kobe's & Lebron's career down by the # of All Star team mates they've had & the competition they've faced in the Playoffs; the conclusion is that Kobe has won more with less while playing tougher teams in the Western Conference. If you feel Lebron James is better that is okay I respect your opinion but this notion that Lebron is undoubtedly better & that Kobe is not Top 10 is utter nonsense. Before you try to downplay Kobe as being a sidekick remember Lebron wasn't even good enough to be Wades sidekick in 2011 vs the Mavericks when Wade put up 27ppg 7reb 6ast, Bosh put up 19ppg 8reb, meanwhile Lebron put up 17ppg & was outscored by a bench player from the Mavericks team with only 1 aging All Star in Dirk. Kobe in his Prime with a Wade putting up 27ppg & Bosh putting up 19ppg is NOT losing to that Mavericks team.
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @PhoraOne Sinatra im sorry but there is no way i'm reading the bible you just put out, but all i'm going to say is that kobe is not on lebron's level. This isn't a debate anymore to anyone but kobe fanboys
  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago (edited) @anonymous Of course you don't wanna read the facts because you just got owned 🤷 Low key you did read it & couldn't refute the facts so you fall back on that lame excuse 😂
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @PhoraOne Sinatra that isn't a lie or an excuse, just rhat nothing there will renew my knowledge. I don't hate kobe or am a lebron fanboy, but it's common knowledge now that he is better than kobe. Both better and greater.
  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago @anonymous At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this thread is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago @anonymous Its funny that you claim its "common knowledge" by now that Lebron is better than Kobe yet most NBA players who have played with & against both majority say Kobe is better 🤷 I'll take their word over yours.
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @PhoraOne Sinatra it's common knowledge the same way it's common knowledge that michael is the greatest. every stat/analytic says lebron is a better, he is more accomplished in every way apart from rings, he's more complete and verastile than kobe and a better leader/team player.
  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago (edited) @anonymous in your opinion. I completely disagree 🤷 players don't play for Stats they play to win Rings at the end of the day. Kobe is a SG who played in the Triangle offense similar to MJ which is why their ast numbers are very similar. Lebron doesn't play in a system he IS the system he has the ball 80% of the time in his hands thus inflating his stats but it doesn't translate to winning basketball as his record shows that. Why do you think Kyrie left? Dude couldn't even play his PG position because Lebron turns everyone into spot up shooters. Sure Lebrons stats are nice but I'll take winning basketball & Rings any day of the week.
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @PhoraOne Sinatra kobe in a system? kobe was the harden of the 2000s. no passing and shooting a bunch to get your points. lebron is: a)more dominant b)able to do more with less c)better passer d)less selfish, gets other guys involved e)makes his teammates better f)better rebounder g)more efficient h)taller, stronger, longer wingspan i)as fast and quick as kobe if not faster and quicker j)more accomplished: more mvps, more finals mvps despite winning less rings, lebron has led his team in scoring every year since he entered the league while kobe (a scorer) did not until year 7, etc. k)has always been the best player on his team, and since about 2009 the widely considered best player in the world l)better longevity m)lebron is a better defender (when he wants to defend n)more versatile. can play and defend all 5 positions o) better basketball mind. he can see your rotations, your defensive and offensive patterns in real time and go out and implement a game plan to defeat you p)lebron never had a teammate like shaq, who is the most dominant force, especially in the paint, of all time and a top 10 all time player. q)lebron has been successful in more than one place. and those are just a few examples. i can keep going.
  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago @anonymous You do realize that's just your opinion right? Obviously you're a Lebron fanboy/cheerleader 😂 again let me ask why do most NBA players think Kobe is better? I mean you aren't in the NBA right? Your opinion holds zero weight nobody cares what a fanboy thinks.
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @PhoraOne Sinatra these are all facts, stuff anyone with a pair of eyes can see. Im not an lbj fanboy. If i was, why hide it? You're the fanboy. Kobe's
  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago @anonymous How are they facts? Because you say so? Majority of NBA players aka the "professionals" disagree with you 🤷
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @PhoraOne Sinatra with what point that i made would they disagree?
  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago @anonymous A LOT. To begin you comparing Kobe to Harden tells me you don't know anything about Basketball. You're comparing Harden a terrible defender to Kobe a player tied for most All NBA Defensive 1st Team in NBA history. I can't even take you serious anymore.
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @PhoraOne Sinatra i was not talking about defense. I said their style is similar, and it is.
  • PhoraOne Sinatra
    PhoraOne Sinatra 3 months ago @anonymous I disagree strongly. Harden only has a few moves & step backs while Kobe has the whole package offensively including post game/foot work. Kobe also didn't get half his points at the FT line, different styles completely.. Do you even watch Basketball?
  • anonymous
    anonymous 3 months ago @PhoraOne Sinatra i didnt say kobe was not better, he is. But they both are ball hogs that would just keep dribbling into a brick wall. Kobe would have entire games with no assisted points, like harden. Kobe would have games with 1 assist. You guys call it the mamba mentality, don't you? Also, 20 of his 82 points were free throws, and a lot of his high point games were either mass shooting until it goss in or a great portion coming from the line.
