Old man Kobe going on his 17th season is better than Melo. Prime Kobe eats that scrub alive.

Ha you know it, dude. Thought I'd try this place out, but I'm not quitting ESPN yet, even though it has gone down the toilet lately.

On the topic of Kobe being a distributor first, we have to remember, Kobe proved that being a facilitator only made him and the Lakers worse. His role is neccesary for that single team's success. I remember right after Shaq left between like 05-07 (i think) Kobe sort of shifted his focus to trying to do it all instead of being a score-first type of guy, and what happened? Lakers struggled to make the playoffs and I think even missed them one year. Kobe's numbers looked worse too and he was getting killed by ESPN an haters. However, the talent on those Lakers teams was pretty lacking. Kobe can't do IT ALL. But i you get him a good complementary guy like Pau, and he can focus on scoring and defense, the Lakers are a contender. He's not great in the role of a facilitator though.

That being said, Kobe >>> Melo

Give Melo the best help anybody has ever had and he'll pile up rings quicker than Kobe can rape.

It isn't really close. Melo is clearly the better player. Anybody who isn't a Kobetard will agree.


You could replace all instances of the string "Kobe" with "Jordan" in that post, and all of its points, including the post as a whole, would be just as true.

What are you talking about? They had smush parker and kwame brown and luke walton starting. How can that team do well? those 3 years you mentioned, 2 of them were his best statistical seasons hes ever had. Hes 5 assists guaranteed, and can make other players better. Melo has neither. Playmaking is not evne a comparison

you also forgot that from 05-07 Kobe had scrubs who would score in their own baskets.
