“Who’s Better?” Most people say that Lebron James is a better player and athlete that they have seen in years. Some more people would say that he is a better all around player than Kobe Bryant. This is where the arguments begin because some people just dislike Kobe so they just say Lebron James is better than him. However, I can prove this through career and statistics as to why I think Kobe Bryant is a better player than Lebron James. Kobe Bryant has been in the league for 17 years of his life now just playing basketball. Kobe Bryant has spent almost half of his life in the NBA. We can all say that Kobe Bryant is literally the Greatest of All Time. He’s been in the league longer than Lebron to know what and what not to do while playing his opponent, he knows how to be a clutch factor for his team and bring in championships. Here’s where people say “But after Kobe lost Shaquille O’Neal he struggled to find another championship win.” This is a true statement but at the same time what is player without there big man? How could you expect to win if you don’t have anyone you trust enough to throw the ball too and expect him to finish under pressure for you? Yes Kobe and Shaq were the best duo but we’re beyond that point now Kobe has won two NBA Finals without him, it took a couple of years but it finally happened. As far as Lebron goes he had a chance to show that he could do it himself when he was playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers but he couldn’t so that’s an argument that everyone will lose to me from the start. It took Lebron James a trade to the Miami Heat to win a championship. The first year wasn’t successful for him, although they went to the finals they lost to the Mavericks. Lebron has what people consider “The Big 3” in the NBA and they lost. Yes Lebron has 2 rings under the wing of Dwayne Wade but he still is no match for the Black Mamba. Kobe
