It is safe to file this "debate" under : "Coulda, woulda, shoulda"...

Unfortunately, even if Tmac weren't injury prone, he would still lack the means to become a leader & champion, talented or not.

There is no stat for Heart & Will, 2 intangibles Mcgrady never came close to posessing.

Kobe has been with the best coach ever and has been paired up with a great big man... Without Shaq, he can't win in the playoffs, without Pau, he can't win championships... Yao is just nothing if compared with the two.
But every year, there's always 1 champion but in the past 2 decades, only 1 team have won 22 consecutive wins and its the Rockets led by T-mac.

That's interesting....

How many times has the great Tmac been out of the 1st round?

Just curious.

Kobe overrated.Kobe chokes lots of times but he teams bails him out.Thats my problem with Laker fans.Lebron had to carry a team load and thats why he had so many blemishes but Lebron is much better than Kobe.Lebron and Wade are the best players.

Yes,indeed T-Mac would be better.He was a taller Kobe.Kobe was nothing more but the same selfish player T-Mac was a times.Ball hogs baby.T-Mac was indeed better.LA key to success has always been their bigs.Kobe shoots only 45% for a career that us indentical to a prime T-Mac.Lebron and Wade are way better than Kobe.As,for Kobe being a better leader crap.Thats BS.Leadership is making your teammates play better.My friend is coming out with a book that shows Kobe has been nothing more than a detriment these championship runs even with Shaq who I feel didnt need Kobe to win those championships when Kobe sucked ever year in the post season jacking up more shots than the dominate Shaq.Kobe is like the player who haas the ability than actually playing effienct and consistent with hisability.Theirs alot of players who has the ability to do something but Kobe doesnt perform consistent and shoot effient enough to be the best or be better than Lebron,Wade,Paul,Howard and etc.

I hope donnie nelson is considering T-mac to be a maverick. The mavericks need a G/PG/SF like T-mac to stay on top.

Look here Jackie Chan, the fact that you chose T-Wack over Kobe tells me you need to stick to Kung Fu, majong, gambling and pokemon. Stupid g00ks jump from one wagon to the next whoever wins.'oooohh Kobe is best, me sucky sucky' mavs win and here you are with Dirk41 as your handle. Now stop talking about American sports mr miagi, you don't know what you're talking about. Do you understand the words that are coming out my mouf?

Yeah, but did Kobe choke like Lebrom has in the Finals, TWICE? NOPE. How many 50+ point games Lebrom have? 80+ point game? Lame arguement from a lame person, huh Just10?

I would say it was T-mac ... Kobe was never been a great player in his career.. He was not an all around player when he first came into the NBA ... i was never satisfied of how he play... So selfish ( ^^ ) so F*cking Idiot... ahahaha

LOL...yeah ok...that is one of the stupidest things i have ever read..

Kobe was better, still is better and will always be better...that doesnt mean i dont have respect for T-mac though, cos he was an awesome player, infact these 2 were almost dead even, but the difference is that Kobe is a two way player, t-mac was not a good defensive player, kobe is a 10 time all nba defensive player, and the youngest player ever to earn first team all defensive honours.

I honestly hope the lakers get him to join the team!
