I think that by pure skill and talent kobe is better then michael jordan...he will never get the MVPs or awards that jordan got becvasue people hate him because of colorado..and their is no WAY lebron is better then kobe....thats just rediculous cause Lebron has said many times in interwiews that kobe is hands down the best player in the world...also lebron is playing in the east...the east is NOTHING to the West conference...west has phx,sa,dallas,denver,and houston...all the east has is detroit and thats it....Id bet that if kobe was on a east team he would get to the finals...Also kobe is the most clutch player ever...yes even better then jordan just casue he has the range that jordan doesnt have.Yes he had shaq on the championships run but who was hitting the BIG shots when shaq was sitting out with foul trouble???? And taking over the game...exactly...KOBE!

I never said MJ was the best ever, infact I dont believe in "the best ever" I just agreed overall hes better than kobe thats all, scottie the best 3 well I dont know about that but I really dont feel like arguing about it right now, but he certainly has everything I would want in a 3.

I'd place him second behind Larry Bird. You can't argue with stats of 24.3, 10.0 and 6.3 for his career. He maybe wasn't the defender that Pippen was, but I'd give him the edge based on the fact that Bird's play saw little decline with age and injury (20.2, 9.6 and 6.8 in his final season aged 36) whereas Pippen declined significantly once years and niggles began to take away his athleticism (11.3, 5.2, 4.6 aged 36 in 2001, down from career averages of 16.1, 6.4 and 5.2).

It would have been great to see them go toe-to-toe in their prime, though (Pippen from 94, Bird from 86). Shame we don't have a time machine.

Wasn't Dr. J also a small forward who is better than Pippen? I think if bully really believes pippen was the best 3 ever then jordan had more help than we thought, but I will say this pippen is a good mold of what a 3 should be, good defender, can hit the outside shot, athletic, good height, but there are just guys that can do it a little better.
