Default Casual NBA fans

Tell about your experiences with them. (this belongs
I was arguing with someone about my opinion of Kobe (I said he wasn't top 5). They just said I was dumb and didn't know sh1t about basketball since I didn't play it. One of them said Allen Iverson was the second best player in the 2000s behind Kobe I told them Lebron right now is better than Kobe ever was and they ignored me
Anyway tell of your experiences.

No. it's obvious they took offense to your Lebron > Kobe remark. This is ISH. You should've known better.

Once a guy claimed Allen Iverson was the best scorer of all time, lolno

This kid was arguing that Jordan was overrated, and LeBron would eventually be better than him. I told him that even though I do believe LeBron is a better overall player, no way he will be better than Jordan because Jordan holds too many accolades, and leBron will always have the horrible 07 and 11 finals performance in him. He just kept telling me how Jordan is overrated because he won the dunk contest over Dominique.

I argued with a guy on who was the GOAT. This dumbass told me Magic Johnson because he could play the 5 positions

It's weird, but makes sense....I mean when I'm on 192 hitting up multiple O-town bars on different big NBA game nights, I usually always here these type opinions from ppl:

"LeBron is better than Jordan, because he can play all 5 positions. LeBron is better than Jordan because he's bigger, faster and stronger and better team player"

"The 3 Greatest players ever are Kobe, LeBron, and Jordan" Normally, Kobe, Jordan, and LeBron is in most ppl I've meant top 5's.

"Kobe is better than Jordan"
"LeBron is better than Kobe and Jordan"

Basically the players who are mentioned as all Time best in my multiple convos (dating back to a few yrs of convos) are, Kobe, Jordan, LeBron, Bird, Magic.

Players who are mentioned as the best rightnow are, LeBron (by alot), some say Kobe still got it, and others mention Durant and Rose.

I also talked with my Grand-dad (on my dad's side) and 2 of his friends....Basically, they agreed that Oscar was the greatest and said Wilt would be a close 2nd. Two of them (1 being my Grand dad) called Jordan overrated media darling who just shot the ball alot, they preferred Magic and Bird. They also only like LeBron's and Chris Paul's game in today's league, they dislike Kobe because he snitched on Shaq and he's just Like Jordan, a chucker.


Funny stuff.

Jordan was never really great at shooting, he was better at attacking to the basket. Kobe is a better shooter than Jordan. Tell your grandad that. lol
