    Default 22-yr old Kobe was champ, 1st option over peak Shaq vs Spurs & BETTER than 22-yr Ant

    Ant vs 24' Nuggets........... 33/5/5

    Kobe vs 01' Spurs............ 33/7/7
    Shaq vs 01' Spurs............ 27/13/3


    22-year old Kobe was far superior in every aspect of basketball than Ant

    This proves that Ant isn't the next MJ since he's can't even match Kobe

    Haven't been on here much recently, since when did OP become so insecure about Edwards?

    The guy basically said it's an insult to be compared to Jordan because he's a better shooter

    I think that rubbed OP the wrong way

    Edwards vs Jokic is very similar to MJ vs Larry Bird

    Edwards didn't have crack addicts as teammates

    Jordan never had as much help as Ant has now and beat the Bad Boys or 98' Jazz with less help than Ant has now

    And don't start comparing 36-year Rodman to the GOAT defender in Gobert or I'll have to bring up 33-year Ben Wallace in 08' and 09', or Shaq in 2010.. It's ridiculous to try to inflate clearly bad and old players.. Ant also had the 6MOY and "length everywhere" according your genius IQ Lebron.

    Oh shit Ant's numbers went down again after his 2nd game of less than 20 points, so I'll have to adjust the OP... He's only averaging 30 now against a team with no great defenders and not known for defense.. lol.. and single-coverage most of the time because he's just a "down-hill" player, so teams prefer to face this weaker brand than ball movement.. carry on

    And a lot of the clowns around here acted like Kobe was carried and a "sidekick" ring don't count etc. Guy put up better numbers in an era where they were way more suppressed.

    This would have been convincing had kobe won a finals mvp on his first few years in the league.

    Yes, because a Finals MVP discredits the previous 3 rounds in '01 and him being the best 4th quarter/clutch player in the Playoffs that year.. People don't do this shit with Duncan, they give him full credit for '07 and '14 and he wasn't FMVP then.

    Your statement is completely untrue about Duncan. In fact, no one thinks about him at all, which is clearly worse than whatever perspective fans have on Kobe.

    But yes, when discussing the GOAT standard, you in fact do need the FMVP to go along with your rings. It's why MJ stands at the top still and why Lebron stands in second place all time.
