Internet poll, not just this one, but in general, you can't take them serious one bit, because it's really more of a popularity contest. People are just going to pick their favorite player. Or at least a huge part of the voters.
how would Kobe guard Lebron? He's so much smaller.
Kobe has guarded LBJ a good bit in match-ups that they have had in the past. He seemed to do oddly well for such a size difference. LBJ had to use a LOT of screens in order to get free from him, whereas Kobe really didn't need any screens to gain the separation needed against LBJ.
It's interesting to think about what Kobe does differently that allows him to compensate for the size difference between them. I don't really see LBJ being able to effectively work in the post against him either, which is obviously where he could take advantage of his size.
Yeah , the thing with ESPN and basketball is that the are not very accurate as of late.This being a poll i guess people really hate Lebron now, Kobe was the least popular athlete for quite some time in the past so he passed to torch(for now), just watch Lebron having 2 great games and Kobe having a bad shooting night and we are back at Lebron is GOAT and Kobe is #7.
