    I think he just acted like Lebron was the next thing- due to being butt-pals with him.

    But it is true. Regardless of stats- Lebron isn't in the same league as Kobe/Jordan. No where near that status.

    D-Wade was being grateful since the man did win two titles for him.

    Are we talking about Ray Allen or Lebron James?

    D-Wade won before Lebron. Lebron won't ever win without D-Wade. Especially now.

    Regardless of stats??? Lol

    LeBron is 29 we will talk about this when he retires.

    But regardless of stats?? Really?? Ok


    But you match Kobe and LeBron at the same age and LeBron beats Kobe in almost every stat line EXCEPT rings, so let's just throw stats out the window. Lmao the Logic. I get it.

    Not in the same league?

    Y'all love you some Kobe.

    I know Kobe didn't have to team up with others to win his championships. He just had to ask for a trade in order to get his front office to do work.

    Could u imagine of LeBron asked for a trade during his first stint with the Cavs??

    Kobe's first 3 rings was because of Shaq, 3 time FINALS MVP.

    Yes, regardless of stats.

    Because when we think of greats- we think of SKILL level and then intangibles like leadership, clutch, killer instincts, etc.

    Jordan had it. Kobe had it.

    Lebron? His stats all come from flopping, or dunking.

    No one cares if you score 30 pts if 27 of them were from the FT line or a fast break dunk.


    Lebron is the greatest athlete in basketball history.

    but he's no where near top 5 of best basketball players in history. And never will be.

    He simply can't play the game beyond his athleticism.

    All Lebron fans are quick to throw the Kobe had Shaq for his first 3 rings. And that Shaq was finals mvp and act like Kobe did nothing.

    Kobe stats for the first three titles
    39 mpg, 21.1 ppg, 44% shooting, 4.4 apg

    43 mpg, 29.4 ppg, 47% shooting, 6.1 apg

    43 mpg, 26.6 ppg, 43% shooting, 4.6 apg

    Lebrons two titles stats

    43 mpg, 30.3 ppg, 50% shooting, 5.6 apg

    42 mpg, 25.9 ppg, 49% shooting, 6.6 apg


    But lets act like if Kobe wasn't playing with the most dominate big man he would have won finals mvp

    Doesn't matter. Kobe stepped up at crucial times to push that Lakers team... most the time with Shaq in foul trouble.

    Lebron does the opposite and vanishes at the most crucial times. MJ and Kobe = winners. Lebron = loser.

    Ah. The one that doesn't show up for 4th quarters and needed old ass Ray Allen to win his last championship for him. We all know he wasn't taking that shot.

    I feel bad for Paul George. Hopefully this injury doesn't affect him long-term, he's a fun player to watch.
