Yeah but you think any of the fools here care about that? Most of these LeBron fans seem more concerned with him winning MVP's and scoring titles and being called "the best player in the world" rather than the Cavs winning a title. That's why they're called fanboys.

Not at all at least for me. Cleveland first Bron second. He is the best player in the world and what I would like to see is a sweep of all the MVP's (ASG, RS, F). That would be sweet.

I don't see why Lebron would be considered better now if he wasn't last season.

Kobe is playing great now, both are sacrificing some of their statistics by playing less minutes and getting their teammates involved. You could make the argument that Kobe has a better supporting cast but Lebron is in a weaker conference.

Both are very close right now but I don't think Lebron has passed Kobe. Kobe's outside shot and post up skills still make him more dangerous in my opinion.

In other words, he's a bit player in a very well oiled machine; something he's been his entire career basically.

This is the year that Lebron, Wade and Bosh separate themselves as the next generation of super stars. Taking over for guys like KG, Tim, Kobe, etc..

we'll see who's left when it counts

I didn't know that the East was weaker than the West this year. Good use of reasoning.

Anyway, right now, I think Kobe still holds the title of best player to most.

i feel its close between Kobe and Lebron, but Kobe still has the edge,
he has more experience and until Lebron develops a consistent outside jumper Kobe>Lebron
