Kobe Bryant VS LeBron James The National Basketball Association (NBA) has produced some of the greatest men’s basketball players who all have put a mark in the record books based off their performances. Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Miami Heat’s star LeBron James are both the face of the NBA toady. The ultimate goal for both players is to win championships.

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.
He only scored 19 points & it was the only game of his I watched live. He had the ball stripped from him by a sneaky & quick Spud Webb but did not let it get to him. He airballed a 3 pointer, and the crowd “ohhhddd” in disapproval, but he laughed & then shrugged his shoulders at the crowd and the crowd changed its disapproval & started laughing with him.

To go along with the category of defense, the Bulls would also have an astonishing margin of victory during the regular-season, post season, and the two combined. The bulls had a marginal victory of about 15 PPG even though this wasn't the best in the regular-season, falling short to the '72 lakers which had a 15.9 PPG, the bulls stayed consistent through the playoffs were they maintained the 15 PPG margin. Even though they we're ranked number 2 in NBA history in both categories, regular-season and post season margin of victory, they were number 1 in the two of them combined being a more consistent team than that of teams like the '86 Celtics, '67 Sixers, '72 Lakers, '87 Lakers and the '64 Celtics whose rosters contained basketball patriarchs like Bill Russell, Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor, Jerry West, and Magic
