Re: Jordan not winning yet at Lebron's age is not the same thing: STOP BRINGING IT UP
Rookie Lebron was as good as or better than anyone on the 97 Lakers short of Shaq ever were. I doubt that is easily hidden. Kobe was raw. Lebron was never that. He was raw compared to what he is now. He wasnt just....a rookie finding his way.
Kobe wasnt starting because he wasnt very good. He was talented and great one on one. But he wasnt just....a really good player.
