Winning. Kobe Bryant is a better player than LeBron James because he is a proven winner. A ring rush of 5 championships, a compilation of game-winners, having the assassin mentality, leading by example, this is what gives Kobe the edge over LeBron. Kobe Bryant and LeBron James are both extremely gifted basketball players who possess the talent and athleticism, allowing them to be prosperous at their profession. First of all, Kobe Bryant holds the record for most three- pointers made with twelve in one game, on January 7th, 2003 vs. the Seattle SuperSonics.
The team won the gold at the games that year, which were held in Los Angeles. Jordan later helped the American team bring home the gold medal at the 1992 Olympic Games, held in Barcelona, Spain. He was an extremely accomplished college athlete and more people were starting to recognize his undeniable talent. Jordan left college after his junior year because he was drafted into the NBA by the Chicago Bulls and just like he did in school, he proved himself to be great on the court. In his first season (1984–85) as a professional, he led the league in scoring and was named Rookie of the Year; after missing most of the following season with a broken foot, he returned to lead the NBA in scoring for seven consecutive seasons, averaging about 33 points per game.
He was named player of the year after his great performance his junior year. Jordan succeeded in the NBA like any other player would want to. Unlike any other rookie, he was already making a name for himself. He led his team in scoring and he scored more points than any other player in the NBA that season. This wasn’t a normal type of thing you usually see from a rookie.
The Three Greatest Basketball Players of All-Time During the past 30 years, the National Basketball Association has helped many players become famous and wealthy. For some, if they were not a part of this association, may have ended up in jail, prison or even dead. The National Basketball Association (NBA) has basically been a tool for many African-American males to have a better way of life. Among the leading players in the history of the NBA are three African-American males: Michael Jordan, Ko9be Bryant, and LeBron James. Michael Jordan tried out for his high school basketball team and was cut because he was too short.
He was tall, quick, and had a high basketball I.Q. He lead his team of Palo Alto High School to a very successful season, 32 and 1. Also winning their division championship. Lin was categorized in the first-team allstate, he also won the Northern California Division two player of the year. After highschool, he sent out mixtapes of highlights to colleges, but they weren't seriously looking at him for sports.
Lebron James is more of a power player. For instance, instead of pulling up when he’s guarded by one opponent, he would rather just take him to the hoop. He is known for his spectacular dunks and power-plays. Kobe Bryant on the other-hand, you would call an elusive and thinking player. Kobe Bryant creates the illusion that he is ten steps ahead of his opponent.
So I'm surfing the best citizen sports journalism site in the country, Bleacher Report, when I come across a headline that had the name "Kobe Bryant" and "overrated" in the same sentence. What a travesty. To add to my furor and frustrations, Bryant is being compared to Michael Jordan yet again as a plausible argument for his supposedly exaggerated talents and accomplishments. Yawn. Aren't we tired of this yet?
Their starting line up consists of two seniors, two juniors, and one sophomore, all who were part of the championship team last year. This experienced combination of players will be a lethal hit to any team that is in their way. Russ Smith is the driving force that propels this team. He has all the skills it takes to keep the team together and has helped amass such a great run at the end of their season, with a 42-point outbreak against Houston two weeks earlier. The Louisville Cardinals are not going down this year; they will fly all the way to the top.
Collins was drafted and hired for the same reason, to restore the winning tradition of the franchise. Collins was a very successful player for the 76ers, but due to injuries was forced to retire the summer before the title won in 1983. Collins is considered one of the best coaches, however there are certain aspects of his coaching style I disagree with. For example, Jrue Holiday should not have been named the point guard because the position doesn’t fit his capabilities. He wants to be known for making the big plays, instead of distributing the basketball to his teammates.
Since he was drafted, the Nuggets have not missed the playoffs, and have won the division title twice. He makes over 13 million dollars a year. They have a total of 1,732 All-time wins and 1,768 All-time losses, and their All-time winning percentage is 49.5%. On March 16, 2008, the Nuggets scored 168 points in a 168–116 home win over the Seattle Supersonics. It was the third-most points scored for a regulation game in NBA history.
