Default Replace Big 3 Era Lebron with Prime Kobe

Do the Heat win those not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5, not 6, but 7 rings?

The results would be about the same. It is hard to believe that a prime Kobe Bryant wouldn't win at least two championships with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh as teammates.

Heck, he went to three straight finals and won consecutive championships with Lamar Odom has his third-best player.

2 titles maybe. Kobe would actually be a great fit on those Heat teams, because of his ability to play off-ball.

Ill do it by year

2011 (2004 kobe): Down year and played horribly in the finals, but the Mavs obviously won't trouble him as much as Detroit did so ill give them the benefit of the doubt and the Heat win
2012 (2005 kobe): Dont make the finals IMO
2013 (2006 kobe): Kobe shits on fatfukk Diaw and they win
2014 (2007 kobe): Lose to the Spurs

So 2 rings and 3 finals appearances seems the most plausible IMO

No way. Maybe one ring, but Kobe and Wade are too similar. Plus then there is no one to defend 1 - 5 like Lebron, and Kobe isnt a good fit for a pressure defense playing small ball which was the Heats staple. They decrease defensively and the team doesnt mesh as well with Kobe instead of Lebron. I saw 1 final and 0 championships.

Maybe a ring in '11...Kobe+Wade duo is possibly even a worse fit than Lebron+wade

maybe 1-2 ring.

I feel comfortable with the idea of Kobe guarding against the PG during his prime year.

assuming the make up of their role players would change.


you get a good coach.

Since when does Kobe just "rest"? he goes for Bill Russell's record of wins in a decade without taking a break and the NBA decides to break up the team into two in order to make the league fair again.

Kobe can't score nearly as efficiently as lebron, worse rebounder, passer, and defense. Heck lebron has him beat considerably in every way

Plus lebron came up big in all the clutch games (game 6 v boston) and all the game 7's averaging like 33 and 11

Kobe is a notorious game 7 choker, quit in game 7 against suns and 6-24 in finals game 7

So no rings, and heat never get passed second round

do they make the finals?

the Heat defense takes a huge hit against teams like the Bulls and Celtics with Kobe on the squad over Lebron.

Default Re: Replace Big 3 Era Lebron with Prime Kobe

they win in 2011 for sure.

12 and 13 are toss ups...the margin of error was so small those years that we can't really know much.

kind of like putting Lebron on the 02 Lakers...the margin against the Kings was just so slim that it's impossible to say anything with certainty.

if someone forced me to guess...here is how I think the 4 years would have gone with Kobe;

2011 - title
2012 - loss to Celtics
2013 - loss to Pacers
2014 - loss to Spurs
