    Default Prime Kobe or LeBron James?

    Who do you think is the better option between these two?

    Kobe's best season: 35 points/ 5 rebounds/ 4 assists with 85% FT and 45% FG.

    LeBron's best seasons: 31 points/ 7 rebounds/7 assists with 74% FT and 48% FG.

    Another season for LeBron that was as close: 30 points/ 9 assists/ 7 rebounds with 77% FT and 50% FG.

    Who would you take?

    probably Lebron
    you have to factor in what kind of system you're going to run, what kind of players you're going to surround that player around.
    Lebron has been surrounded by players who play defense and can shoot from outside.
    Kobe has been surrounded by talented bigs but no one who can consistently shoot from outside.

    Prime Kobe was a much better on-ball defender, was more reliable offensively, and was more consistent shooting wise. Remember when he had that 9 consecutive game streak of 40+ points? Kobe basically put up LeBron type numbers(30/7/6) with much better defense. Not to mention he did it with Shaq not at 100% for most of the season.

    He's in his 8th season. He's in his prime.

    Kobe would have gave my franchise 5 rings... So kobe.

    If Lebron can get 2+ rings in is whole career, then maybe him.

    Stats aren't everything.

    Kobe was a proven commodity with the game on the line.. There was no stopping Kobe when he was locked in the zone. LeBron? One dominant closeout performance game doesn't completely write him off as being a complete flop in clutch situations. But since Kobe got swept, and LeBron's performance last game is fresh in everybodies minds, people have forgotten all about LeBrick.

    That's how quick people will flip the script around here. Wait til LeBron bricks out to lose a game trying to be the hero.. The majority of the people here will be picking Prime Kobe. Make this thread again, after one of those games, then tally up the score, and you have your answer.

    LeBron just needs to bank on the fact that he can take a game over at will and do his best to not put himself in a position where he has to shoot game winners.

    Though, LeBron is the much more dominant presence on the court to me atleast. Mainly because he's more of a threat attacking the basket than he is shooting. But a prime Kobe had one of the most fluent and consistent shots ever. LeBron is only now coming into his own with his jumper.

    That said. I'll take the proven Kobe with the 5 championships, over a LeBron who has yet to win anything other than MVP.
