Well How many rings do you credit Magic with?

He's literally not better than LeBron in one aspect of the game let alone all. The only thing the rapist has on the king is he's a better free-throw shooter.

LeBron for years and years. Kobe before LeBron entered the league or maybe during his rookie year.

Kobe is better at those last second clutch fadeaway three's though.

True

That is why I always say to talk about this things are premature.
But facts are facts at the time being. And if you compare the two it's still Kobe.

It's better to measure Magic vs. Bird to say or Wilt vs. Russel. Careers are over we can see their whole body of work.

I would say Bron is the better overall defender while Kobe is the better help defender in his prime(his off ball defense is not where it used to be). Kobe was also an elite man defender for a few years but I don't think he did it both areas long enough to rate over Bron's defensive impact.

Bron is the better roamer defender in transition and can track down blocks from behind.

I would also say Bron is the better slasher;

finally in terms of clutchness I honestly don't think much separates them.Yes Bron had some mental flaws which lead to playoff failures but I think Kobe has had his share of flaws that attributed to his own failures.

BTW i used to be one of those people who used to downplay Kobe's rings with Shaq and while I still think guys like AI, Pierce, T-Mac might of also won rings I don't think they would have been able to duplicate the dominance of the Shaq/Kobe era. Any reasonable basketball poster would have to come to terms with just how valuable Kobe was to those teams.

As for Bron, his resume is not complete yet and still has 4-5 years left i his prime. So, if he is able to add a few more rings to his stash i think his resume has the potential to surpass Kobe's.

Also what separates these 2 elite stars for me is i prefer the way LeBron plays the game and to some degree that might make the difference if their accomplishments are similar.

I just wished some of you had the balls to bring up the hard hitting and original comparison's like me here with my Lebron and Kobe thread. You losers are stuck on the same old trendy BS like "Was Cliff Robinsons 1988 NIT all tournament team selection merited?"

It's hard to decide between these two players either way you go.. OP is a ******

No, for a true basketball fan its extremly easy...

1. Different players/games, but Lebron is a better overall individual player, does more on the court, is more impactful, more productive, more dominant, better peak...
2. Kobe had a better career / more accolades, as in ranked higher on the all-time list, played many more years afterall....
3. Lebron is on pace to end up with a better career than Kobe though....

Its as simple as that...

Still up for debate even after that.
I say if LeBron get two more titles playing at his current rate then the case is closed. But let's say he loses another one this year. Or maybe does not make it. Then Kobe's case get's stronger.
