Yawn another Kobe vs Lebron debate...
Listen Lebron currently is the best player in the league and will go down as one of the greatest to play the game and one of my favorite players. He is probably one of the most unselfish superstar to ever play and I love to watch him play except for days like today when he plays my team.
On the flip side Kobe is a scorer and lock down defender but if he wanted to have alot of assists he could evidenced by his 14 dimes. It is not about talent it is about a willingness to do so and he doesn't want to apparently.
One final thing, both MJ and Kobe in their prime and as superstars won 3 World Championships in a row. Lebron will need to match that if he wants to be on their level. He has no excuses now, he formed a super team with 3 players in their prime that are Top 10 guys. Until then it is all moot.
