Default Re: Now that Kobe has decided to be a facilitator, is he better at it than Lebron James?

If Kobe is a better facilitator than Lebron after only 3 games (leading HOFers to lottery status), then Michael Jordan is by far the best point guard in the history of basketball:
March 21, 1989

Doug Collins decided to move Jordan to the point guard spot against Seattle on March 11, 1989. He finished that game with 15 assists. Two days later, he had a game of 21/14/14 against the Pacers in just 30 minutes of playing time in a 32-point blowout win. He reached the triple double mark in just 21 minutes.

Jordan continued to play at the PG spot until the end of the season. In these 24 games he averaged 29.3ppg, 8.9rpg, 10.6 apg, 2.4spg. Between March 24 and April 14, 1989, he recorded a triple double in ten of the eleven games, including seven consecutive ones. In the game he didnít record a TD, he finished with 40 points, 11 assists and 7 rebounds.

In this game, he has 16 assists against the Lakers and ties his career-high which was set in his rookie year. (Three days later, on March 24, he had 17 assists at Portland which remained as his highest.)
Let's keep things in perspective, huh?
