Thank goodness Shaq was there to put up 33.0/15.8/4.8 on .573/-.513

Btw Kobe only took four less shots than Shaq and still scored over 8 PPG less

The answer to the question remains the same.

There aren't many 35ppg finals and almost all of them are when the opposing player at the position is either a role player or a much lesser star.

Kobe and Lebron are the only significant players to be opposed to a 35 a game finals player.

If you remove the useless stat minimum which as they all are is used to overly narrow down things to make a point? Just go with who got lit up in general? Gave up 30 something? List grows to include Russell, shaq, and some others.


No its not the same. 48TS is garbage. That's actually a positive to hold a star to that poor efficiency. While 35 ppg on 70TS otoh is literally the highest combination of volume and efficiency in the Finals....ever.

Phil might have thought chasing Iverson around all game was affecting Kobe's offense because he was really bad in game 1. Seemed to work beacause Kobe played much better offensively after game 1.

Who said it's the same? I said they are the answers to the question. They are. The answers are Kobe and Lebron.

Nope. Wrong again.



LeBron was severely outplayed which led directly to his team losing 4-1 in the NBA Finals.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01tsg1f2F-M

remember when Shaq fouled out in Philly and Kobe + Horry carried the team to a win?

I posted a vid of Kobe guarding Iverson, he did a solid job on him defensively, AI just made a lot of tough/contested shots. Kobe forced some turnovers but obviously they put Lue on AI because they needed Kobe more offensively than they needed him chasing AI around all game. Look at the video, Kobe was forcing turnovers and even airballs & blocked shots while defending Iverson, he should have been on him all game to the very end, Lue was not as good defensively as Kobe.

remember game 3? of course you don't because you never watched the damn series.

Why can't LeBron score for his teammates using mind control when he's on the bench?


What a scrub.

Except LeBron also averaged 34






This isnt a Kobe situation where he averages 20 and gets 35ppg a night by A.I
