Kobe, on the other hand, would've been able to score with his post moves, and since that was a team of shooters, something that Kobe has never had, it would've been interesting to see kobe being constantly doubled in the post and shooters getting all kinds of looks. And if you leave him 1v1 in the post, that's probably the deadliest weapon in the league.
Plus Kobe would never brake down mentally in any situation, he could start missing shots, but he would never quit, and we know that lebron quit.
Except the Cavs second best overall player in '08, and '09 was a SG, and their backup SF was who again? People forget just how good Delonte West was, especially in the playoffs. That man had no quit in him, and always gave it his best on both ends.
