Default Re: Are There People That Really Feel Tmac Was Better Than Kobe in 03

Not sure how anyone could claim TMac was a better player in 03'...

- Kobe showed us all how great a scorer he could be ...Dropping 40 point games not seen since Wilt go along with all world defense...

- To add...Kobe was playing on team trying to 4 Peat....meanwhile Tmac playing just to stay alive...without any pressure or expectation...( If Kobe played on the 03' Magic...he would have put up 35 - 37PPG easily)

- recap: Kobe was a better offensive player when he needed to be....Scoring 40PPG for a month.....he was also a much better Defensive player with a much greater will to win.

- Tmac had a amazing season on a pretty bad team.....I chalk it up with Kelly Tripuka's 83' season with the Pistons...

Funny part is...all we heard from TMacm was " If only I had some good teammates...I could win like Kobe".....a few years later he joined the Rockets to form a Dynamic Duo.....he still struggled.
