If Kobe had never played with Shaq, would his numbers/stat line be similar to MJ and LeBron like he is alluding to?

Kobe wouldn't have matched the numbers early on, IMO, but his overall career numbers would be better... I don't know how much better, but there would be a clear difference.

great quote.

I agree, but I also think people look for context when they haven't seen the performances at hand and numbers are what they got to work with.
