    In order to be the best, you need to be an assassin. If you get to a decisive game, the best is the one you want in your team, the one who will surpass himself and obliterate his opponent. The greatest assassin the world has ever seen is MJ, no doubt about that. Kobe was no MJ but he was close enough. He was nasty, he had the right mentality, the right attitude, he was a winner. LeBron is a technical wonder, a machine with a great set of skills, but he isn't an assassin by any means. He's like a pianist who plays the right keys at the right time but doesn't really make an impression. Then there's the other guy who makes a mistake or two along the way, struggles a bit more here and there, but knows how to overwhelm the audience. LeBron will take almost any team to the finals but he's not the man you want when you get there.

    Kobe is the most overrated player in NBA history. How do you become the Black Mamba after you get beat down in the Finals by 40 in Game 6... he was clutch then right... How about the next time they played the Celtics ... what did he do in game 5,6 or 7? I don't remember either. If you're talking about chips... Take away the 3 when Shaq and Phil were the leaders of the team... Pippen has 6 so I guess he's better than Kobe.

    Dude averaged less points in the Finals in 5 of the 7 years he went to the Finals... I guess that's the Mamba mentality... when it's time to ball you choke.. check your facts.. not your emotions

    what is funny for me, is the guy that is flipping to Kobe now, he is flipping because he has never saw either of them playing... so he is judging by what people are telling him.. which goes for majority of the analysts.. they do not watch the game, they just watch the stats... from behind their screens

    Judging by just the era they played in and the circumstances they played in, LeBron is still way behind Kobe. King LeBron couldn't win a championship without joining a super team or having another superstar.

    Bill Russell was the greatest winner. Kareem the greatest scorer with the most unstoppable shot the sky hook. Jordan is the Greatest in my lifetime of watching NBA from 1980 onward.

    1:04 Check the their comparison .

    Kobe Better scorer
    Kobe better defender
    Now what we got left is Titles.
    Lebron 3 from 9
    Kobe 5 from 7 .

    The 4 MVPs for lebron shows that he was more dominant in regular seasons. But then dont measure a player for his individual craft. The titles prove Kobe was more assassin and mentally stronger when it comes to titles.
    Lebron's titles have an asterisk because all his 3 titles came while having 2 or 3 others ALLSTARS with him .
