That's a stupid question. Look at the facts

One player averaged 54 points on on 50 + % over 5 games, how you people call that chucking or try to discredit it is unbelievable

Lebron plays less & shoots less because he plays on a superior team to what Kobe has at the time. 31 on 68% is crazy good though.

Considering at this time Kobe had no real 2nd option defiently nobody who can drop 30 like wade. The entire offensive load was carried by Kobe.

He was the #1 priority for each defense to stop, they could double constantly because nobody else on the lakers was a threat, he played nearly the entire game and still was able to drop 50 + on amazing efficiency. Incredible durability.

Kobe averaged 50 point games are rare these days, we haven't even had anybody go for 50 yet this season, to AVERAGE 50 + on 50 + % shooting is something that we may never see again

We're talking about a few more attempts per game, not "300".

Kobe's was clearly better. Still Lebron's is insane. Idk why "analysts" are calling it the best ever though. Did they forget Durants 29 game streak of 25+ pts? That was sicker IMO.

Lebron has average 30 ppg and put up similar numbers before, but the difference this time is that he's been shooting something like 80% during that stretch and playing effortlessly. That's what's sticking out a lot.

For sure, but he's also on a team where he can pretty much pick and choose his shots. Still...amazing accomplishment

Lebron has now also tied the NBA record for most games in a row with at least 60% FG and 30 PPG....

...its not just the stats, its how dominant Lebron was during those games... he was putting the ball in the hole however & whenever he wanted and put teams away immediately & efficiently (and then took the foot of the gaspedal as nothing more was needed) unlike Kobe, who more like forced the shots, more like shot the ball however & whenever he wanted..... if Kobe would have shot 71.4% FG during that 5 game stretch of his (not to mention also use his teammates more) he wouldnt have needed to take that many FG attempts .... that doesnt mean what Kobe did wasnt impressive or something, but just saying what Lebron is doing right now is also kindof impressive....


If Lebron tried to score as many points as Kobe did, his efficiency would go down.

So why are we exactly comparing them then? If they are playing on completely different types of teams, wouldn't we expect completely different contributions?

What kind of a Math do you have?
LeBron,
2 pointer 46/62
3 pointer 9/15
Free t. 36/47
155 points total

Kobe,
2 pointer 70/129
3 pointer 21/44
Free t. 65/71
268 points total

If LeBron scored his points on Kobe's efficiency, he would have scored 132 points. 26.4 ppg. Not 23.0.

If Kobe scored his points on LeBron's efficiency, he would have scored 325 points. 65.0 ppg. Not 70.0.

We all know you are just as awful as Kobe-stan. But at least do the Math correctly.

Magic has also gone on record to say that Kobe is the best Laker to ever lace up. So no, you're stupid.
