Default Kobe Bryant vs Vince Carter

Let's get some of the facts out in the air first. Career wise Kobe is million miles ahead of VC. Peak wise easily Carter> Kobe. Anyone who disagrees with any of these statements is an idiot because these are FACTS.

Now what I'd like to discuss is; who was the better individual player during the first 12 years of their careers?

Kobe in his first 12 years;

25.3/5.3/4.7/45.2%

Carter in his first 12 years;
24.2/5.7/4.4/44.9%

Stats wise they're pretty much the same but let's not forget Vince was the better man to man and also a help defender, and he was also a lot more clutch than Kobe. He was more competitive and had a never back down attitude. It's clear that all the intangibles are in VC's favor.

So looking at their first 12 seasons, who was the better player? My vote goes to VC!

Carter was better on defense?

You literally stated the exact opposite of the truth in every point you just made. Clutchness is the only thing you mentioned that you can argue about.

Carter was far more athletic, a better shooter from 3, and more clutch.
Kobe was a better defender and scorer but more importantly put more effort into his career and would find ways to win better than Carter.

Carter and Tmac had such ridiculous potential and kind of wasted it in a sense. As Carter said before, he wouldn't practice as hard as he could have because his athleticism was enough to easily be a superstar and franchise player. If he had Kobe's drive, he and his cousin could have been better players.

Kobe definitely benefited from being on better teams, but the only thing VC has on Kobe individually is that he was more athletic. I don't think anyone was more athletic than VC was.

Wince Carter being compared to Kobe? That ship sailed quite a while ago. Carter was an excellent player for about 5 minutes, Kobe is a legend.

Kobe was a bench player first few years, otherwise as starter his stats would be higher.
