Default Which Kobe seasons would you take over Harden or Westbrook?

Keep in mind that team success matters here. I say WB and Harden are having better seasons than any that Kobe had.

Even in his worst defensive seasons Kobe was better on that end than either of these guys.

2001
2003
2006
2007
2008

All better than '17 Westbrook and Harden, in my basketball opinion.

The real proof comes playoff time. See '16 Curry.

If we are talking regular season only, Kobe never had any years as good as Westbrook or Harden this season.

If you include playoffs, he had three strong championship runs, while Harden and Westbrook are likely to be gone by the end of the second round.

How were Kobe's playoff runs when he had equivalent supporting cast?

Kobe never carried any teams to playoff success by himself, but he did win when he was on strong teams, while Harden and Westbrook didn't.

2001-2010 over Westbrook. Though I might take Harden over Kobe a couple of those years because of playmaking if I really preferred a playmaker that much to a pure scorer for the team.

Statistically you can argue that Westbrook and Harden are having a better season than Kobe, MJ, LeBron, Magic and Bird ever had.
But I still wouldnt take Westbrook or Harden over any of those legends as impressive as they are. Just an eye teat personally. Ditto for prime Wade.
I'd take them over prime Drexler though.

It's not out of the realm of possibility Westbrook is peaking higher than Kobe ever did this season. As far as Harden, 2006, 2008, 2009, and maybe 2001 strictly because of the postseason. No other years for me.

I agree with some of this I would take Harden if my team was in desperate need of playmaker for what it's worth Harden is better passer than Kobe was he has great feel for the game.
