The Lakers just snapped the Cavalier’s 23 home game winning streak in a 101-91 defeat. Neither LeBron James nor Kobe Bryant had a stellar performance, but this was still a highly anticipated game between the two super-stars. Arguably, Bryant and James are the two best players in the league, so naturally the question is – “which one is better?”
Personally, I believe in the team aspect of basketball. While Kobe has matured significantly since his early days in the NBA, LeBron was amazingly mature for a high schooler upon entering the league. While Kobe is more of an offensive machine who occasionally gets his team involved, LeBron’s strength is primarily in the latter.
Now don’t get me wrong, if Kobe went one on one with LeBron, I think Kobe would win. Furthermore, I think the Lakers have a better chance of clinching the championship this year. However, LeBron is way more entertaining to watch. 🙂
Which of the two do you think is “better”, and why?
