One on one Kobe would whip LBJ all day.

Kobe had tried guarding LBJ one on one he got schooled many times but on the other hand LBJ shut down KoMe many times. One on one no contest, LBJ too strong, too fast, jump too high and too smart.
LBJ's vertical is 44" and Kobe's is 35" now.

Just looked at the career PERs MJ #1 and LBJ #2 and KoMe 18th and by the time he finishes probably will be below 20th. KoMe has too many holes in his game. Not a good rebounder, not a good decision maker, forces too many wild shots, too many t/os for a shooting guard and not a good defender takes too many risks. LBJ is far better, by the time LBJ finishes his career he will be the best with no questions.
Dude, LBJ is NOT a SHOOTING guard. That's like trying to compare Magic to MJ or Barkley to Shaq. You just can't do it because they play different positions and have different roles.

Most coaches and players and fans will agreed with me that LJ is the most versatile player has ever played the game. He is by trade a small forward but he does a little of everything and Kobe is mainly a shooting guard that tries to things he is not capable of. Even Stephen A. Smith a diehard Kobe fan says that LJ is more skilled but perhaps not better. I said it back in 2007 that LJ is the greatest ever after what I saw him do in Cleveland and now people are flocking to my bandwagon, wait till next year even more. I have never seen anything like him a freak of nature. He came straight out of high school and the minute he stepped on the courtr he was one of the best players in the NBA, incredible. Even MJ in his freshmen year at North Carolina he was the third best on his team, Brad Daugherty and James worthy was better, he was third best on his team.

More skilled but not better? Don't be so disrespectful to the great Stephen A. Smith and misquote him!

SAS, I watch him on ESPN all the time, he is still a diehard KoMe fan. Next year he will say LJ is better and more skilled the total package.
