It's not fair to compare lebron to MJ. Lebrons game is a kind of a hybrid Magic/Shawn kemp. Lebrons game is so unique you can't really compare him to anyone else. I've never seen a player have such a diverse game as his. If he develops a better jumper hell have the perfect game. That being said he is not the pure scorer MJ was. He is not a cold blooded killer like MJ. He is in the same league of defense in my opinion, which means a lot seeing as MJ was a crazy good defender. Come on Gino how can you say MJ and Kobe had stacked teams, then say Lebron had to carry a team with D wade and bosh. Lebron had "bulls like" teams in Cleveland and couldn't carry them to the big one.
You're right. It's not fair but when people get hell bent on doing it you just say 6-1.

6-1!(without 2 other superstars having to help I might add)

LJ gets no preferred tx from refs and MJ did and LJ's PER is just a little below MJ.

Noway you can seriously say that.Cleveland was nothing likw a Bulls team in that time or period.MJ had more talent on his team overall over every team he beated in the finals.Lebron has never had more talent than a Wizards with Jamison and Haywood.Lebron never had a post big like Grant or w wing man like Pippen until he left to Mia.Lol,dude your silly.The difference between Lebron and MJ is style not greatness,Lebron is as great as MJ was in his era.Kobe was never heads above toes better than anyone.If it wasnt for that great organization I would see him winning anything with anyone.His enability to change his style is like a Iverson or Carter.

Kobe a great player I use to admire.His abilities to his shots are impeccable but individual ability does not mean nothing with consistency.I seen Josh Smith do a Lebron like pass before but how consistent he gives my team that?Same with Kobe he has a flare to make a good youtube video but he has his fare share of shooting slumps that Lebron doesnt have like he does.I have ever seen Lebron ever totally never impacted a game in a particular way.Kobes like Melo almost with his style.

I admit I may have exaggerated his Cavalier teams a little bit, but he still won what like 66 and 61 games with that team for a few seasons. Mo Williams had a great year with the cavs. Big Z, west, and gibson all played there roles great. You are wrong about Kobe. He has changed his style up over the years. He used his athleticism more when he was younger. Now, he the best back to the basket game as a guard in the nba. He now relies on making jump shots instead of dunking all the time. Tell me any other shooting guard that is/was better than Kobe that played against? You can't because there is or was none. Unless you count a washed up mj. And I never disputed that lebron is the best player in the nba now!????

Hes been the best for 5 years.Kobe was never better or never proved it ever.The best was Lebron like by far.I thought he was better in Cle but hes great now aswell.Kobe never had these multiple back to back domination years with all together winning the ring.Kobe only average 35plus a game on a shitty squad and never one anything that year but even that year lebron owned him in all around scoring 31 with 7 and 7.Kobe percentage was just 455 that year and thats not impressive at all for a prime player.The next yearwas lower so wheres this domination I here?Lebron clearly beated the best in the biggest stag.Kobe didnt beat Duncan in his prime,or Iverson,or Durant or Lebron.Shaq beated Iverson and Duncan and Lebron beated the beast Durant who is pure all time great to me.Kobe has to prove more to me.

Kobe beating Melo who is or Rockets team to get to the finals is not impressive.Especially towards how horrible he played vs Boston in that finals.Anyone who seriously think he should of got that MVP over Gasol is kidding themselves.Gasol was robbed twice and that's funny that a single player got him back to the finals after getting beat in the 1st rd for 2 years.Was it Kobe or Gasol?Gasol and Phil was the key and their size.Its like saying Paul Pierce was the reason they beated Cleveland but of course you wouldn't say that with anyone else but Kobe.Your not going to ever say lebron won his title along so stop the BS with Kobe.Its sickening.

@Justin

Dude, you're going off and coming off like a true Kobe hater with no respect for the achievements and MULTIPLE CHAMPIONSHIPS the man has won for his team.

Disliking a player is one thing but don't try and discredit and disrespect what they've earned. Kobe has gone out and seized everything he's won and achieved through putting in time and making sure he's the best he can be, he's never been gifted or handed a thing.

He is after all known as the closest thing to Jordan and if you take Jordan out of the equation and pretend he never existed, we'd be talking about Kobe as if he was Jordan.

Jusayin I hate to see you get trapped, because you honestly make great points. Shame to see them go to waste over a bunch of ding dongs. Don't fall for these 2 fools snowflake aka Gino boy and Justin aka Jrock, these 2 thrive for attention and reappear from their caves to create noise and spew utter crap. Justin on the other hand is actually a guy with split personality syndrome. No lie he admitted it on several occasion. He can be jekyl one day, Peter cottontail another day or a complete jack azz another day. Snowflake as you know makes the most ridiculous comments that his weirdness is almost acceptable. He's a bit more subtle. You will get to know these star studded cast of idiots after a while.

Thanks Sammy.

Now Justin is the guy you thought I was when I first started commenting right?

You talk about a star studded cast of whatevers here? Go comment on a Tebow topic. That's where most of the craziness is. GinoFlake and Justin have nothing on the Tebow-maniacs and the thing is there, we kinda know GinoFlake is doing this to get off, the Tebow-maniacs really believe what they're saying and will and have threatened murder when they get frazzled. Insanity.

Kobe and the Lakers always had stacked teams, if Lebron had stacked teams like that he would have won nine out of nine championships now so those rings do not mean much. 2012 Lebron had two crippled team mates in Wade and Bosh and still won.
Not even Jordan can do that, MJ also had stacked teams, if Lebron had those teams for 13 yrs he would win 13 rings.
you hav no idea what ur tlking about dude, lebrons overrated and couldnt hav done anything ths year with out wade and boshe and they survived the playoffs with him barely in a eak eastern confrerence then had wade and bosh for the finals

Wade and Bosh were just role players in the NBA playoffs they had injuries and were not 100%, not even close to 100%.
