That's so ridiculous. I thought they were expanding the skill ratings to like 75 different categories for "live 07" - other than fancy passing and a little vertical, LeBron is nowhere close to Kobe on the rest of the skills, how they came up with a higher overall rating is beyond comprehension.
Really folks I am not offended by this. Because after all lebron averaged more rebounds and assists and all they did was just put him as a better rebounder and better teammates (to give him his assists)
So thats all it is.
But Kobe is waaayyyyy better. Ratings dont tell the whole story.
Does 2k7 have a dynasty mode? That's why I love Live, building all kinds of crazy Laker teams and taking them through multiple draft years and stuff. If LBJ is some kind of lock-down defender though, I'll definitely be editing that shiznitzle - I wonder if any of the game programmers are even NBA fans, they probably just rated players on the ranking of the jersey sales or something.
