Default Lebron vs Wade vs Kobe vs Durrant vs Mello

I'm tired of going on youtube, and reading comments saying that Kobe is better than lebron or wade on the cavs would win a championship. Lets declare this once and for all, who is the best????

I don't think anyone is even close to Lebron....He comes in the game and just TAKES over.

Kobe has become a chucker.

Lebron is best all around

But in the dying seconds of a game, score tied, It goes in Kobes hand 10 time out of 10 instead of Lebron

In terms of sheer effect on the game and overall dominance LeBron is the best no question.

Kobe is the best scorer though, and in the last couple minutes I would put the ball in Kobe's hand before any of those guys ten times over.

I don't know how to do it, but I saw a listing recently that showed in the last 4 years what the starts are on game winning shots.....

Lebron had more of them and shot them at a much higher percentage than Kobe.

Lebron is better there too, that's just a myth that Kobe is "the best".

If i have to choose one of those players to hit a clutch shot late...Kobe hands down.


If i'm building a team for the future.....LBJ.

The future is now.

Lebron is 2-0 kobe this year.

Lebron is winning games with Mo Williams or Delonte. Just give up. Kobe is not in the race anymore for CURRENT best player. Now we are going to have to wait and see who's had the better career.

Career so far: Kobe
Better player now: Lebron more than a mile.

I saw something like that as well a while back, it is just my gut feeling, isnt based on anything, I would just always give the ball to Kobe at the end of a close game.

See I'mw ith you Bmats.... I don't see how anyone can honestly think Bryant is better.... It boggles the mind!

Honestly, if you switched Kobe and Lebron how many games do you think the Cavs would win?

Lakers would probably beat the record for most wins in a season!

I think that many people's opinion of Kobe has been influenced to believe that he is much greater than he is because he is constantly hyped up by ESPN and other figures.

He earned the reputation but those days are WELL behind him.

kevin durrant and mello are better scorers than kobe. A guy with the most all around game is lebron. In the clutch id give it to lebron, he's going to attack the paint. Kobe's ridiculous shots cant go in all the time.

Dude...he's hit four game winners this year! Some great players don't even hit that many over a handful of seasons.

He's still the most clutch guy in the league, and when he gets in a zone he's easily the best scorer in the league as well.

That's the exact same argument I made when I debated someone IRL. If Lebron was playing with Pao, Odom and Bynum, I think they would win more than 70 games

Okay, this article is by no means definitive, but it's something to consider. I found this on NBA.com

Quote:
Not only is Ginobili the new Batman, he's also Mr. Clutch. His shooting percentage isn't that great, but he's at the top of the list because he gets to the line often and makes his free throws when he does. The same goes for Maggette.

You might notice that every player in the top 10 is in the Western Conference. You also might notice that there's no Bryant, James, Wade or Carmelo Anthony in the top 10. They're a little further down the list. James ranks 12th, Anthony ranks 22nd, Wade ranks 28th and Bryant ranks 38th.
