Especially for the past the two seasons, the Cavs were picked to at least get to the Finals. However, they fell short. Much of that responsibility has to be placed on their franchise player—LeBron. Although, it is easy to point the finger at the head coach, Mike Brown or the supporting cast, the fact is that the Cavs finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference the past two seasons—that doesn't happen with bad coaching and a poor supporting cast. At the end of the day, the best player is Kobe Bryant because he lead his team through the good and bad, and he helped lead the Lakers grab their 16th title against Boston.

Jordan was a more willing passer early in his career, but not to the extreme that the media and naysayers would make you think. Here's a comparison of both players first ten seasons of assists per game. Bryant: 2.5, 3.8, 4.9, 5.0, 5.5, 5.9, 5.1, 6.0, 4.5, 5.4= 48.6 Jordan: 5.9, 2.9, 4.6, 5.9, 8.0, 6.3, 5.5, 6.1, 5.5, 5.3= 56 The numbers tell the story.
