Really you think Kobe would Dominate .. what a Shock.. Seriously you are a hack. It really must Irk you that there is a player WHILE KOBE IS STILL PLAYING that has passed him. Kobe might be most overrated player of all time. He is Very Lucky to have had Shaq win him 3 Ships while being the Complimentary piece and than playing with a Stacked Lakers team being the So called man. Whenever Kobe has not been on a stacked team he never has Carried that team to greater height than they should have achieved like Lebron did with the Cavs.

25 years ago Jordan had no rings.

Some of you guys are really exaggerating. James Harden is dominating now but he is undersized and not that athletic.

Durant is one of the weakest forwards of any era, and isn't quick either. He doesn't like contact unless it gets him to the foul line. His production would definitely suffer under the old rules.

If Kobe is so lucky, then why did he have playoff runs like this when he won his titles?

21/5/4
29/7/6
27/6/5
30/5/6
29/6/6

Top 10 player in the league for all 5 titles and top 5 player for 4 of the 5 titles, actually, most would agree he was a top 3 player for 4 of the 5 titles.

There are so many double standards here. If it's a player you don't like, he was "lucky" to have a good cast. Except all players need good casts to win, very few players actually come through multiple times and deliver. Plenty of great players have had the casts to do it, and have fallen short.

I wouldn't call any of Kobe's championship teams stacked either. He played with a superstar for the first 3, and a very good all-star big man for the last 2, but once again, the word stacked is misused and overused on this board.

Go Lakers! All this talk is really crazy coming from some clown who switches teams every couple years.

Like i said 25 years ago Jordan had no rings. He was only in his 3rd year in 1987. He won his last finals in 1998, only 15 years ago.

Your "bigger, stronger, faster" comment was nonsense. do you have any actual documentation to prove this? I didn't think so.

The best pg in todays game is probably CP3 and he isn't bigger,stronger, faster than players in Jordans era. Centers certainly aren't "bigger, stronger, faster" than Drob, Shaq and Hakeem. What power forward is "bigger, stronger, faster" than Karl Malone?

No way Al Horford makes an All-Star game at center in Jordan's era.

I would have liked to see him go all 'Your wife smells like cheerios' to Charles Oakley
you do know he played in that era rich? He's been in the league since 96 or something like that. Wasn't Kobe in that era since 97 or something?

Why would he be guarded by guards? Mason, McDaniel, Chuck Person, Pippen, Rodman, those are the players that would guard him. Durant guarding LeBron is actually funnier than Ehlo guarding him. Team defense was better back then. Yes, some of it was just hacking, but it was better.

I couldn't agree more.

Plus, LeBron isn't the quickest off the dribble. That hand check would keep defenders LEGALLY even more glued to his hip.

I truly think in a more physical league LeBron would have to switch to PF. And why is STATUTORY laughing at being guarded by Ehlo, Payton, Dumars, Alvin Robertson?

3 of those fellas are some of the best perimeter defenders the game has ever seen. Why do Kobe Kids feel the need to argue length or athleticism = great defense. Because it doesn't. At all.

Those guys would be difficult to beat off the dribble for LeBron. Hell, he had difficulty with old Jason Kidd and Shawn Marion.

LeBron would push off all day and would become one of the better defenders in the league in the 90's
