The Win Shares/48 stat tells you what they're producing on a game-to-game basis for their teams. And that's where LeBron (and several other active players) clearly outclass him.

but Jemele Hill on Page 2 about 5 years ago wrote an article saying Kobe was better than MJ

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...ge=hill/070326

one of the dumbest articles I ever stumbled upon in my life...I emailed her and said three words: "I hate you." and she emailed back and said "no you don't, you just THINK you do." which made me laugh
Yeah, it's ridiculous stuff like this that creates the Kobe mythology. This is why some have the crazy idea that he's on the same level as Jordan or even LeBron (although...wow, that article says not just on the same level but better than MJ ).
