Lebron and Kobe team? 0.

There's got to be some team around them, 2v5 isn't easy.

Not really a good combo, would much rather have one of them and a good bigman.

It wouldn't work, LeBRON dominates the ball too much even tho Kobe could be a spot up shooter if & when LBJ dished it off to him but could LeBRON consistantly him open jumpers that Kobe would create for him? it's questionable..

let's see, if Lakers trade their whole 1st team for Lebron, the lineup would be

Farmar
Kobe
Lebron
Turiaf/Radmanovic
DJ Mbenga/Mihm

Not looking very good. I'd say 0.

those who say not a good combo must not have watched Team USA kobe and lebron can score 30 each in a game at the same time. Both require a double team both can beat the double team. Both are dominant defensively It would be a back court from hell and the other team would struggle dearly. I say they would rebeat definably

Theoretically, the two most unstoppable players in the league today on the same team should equal many championships, however there is only one ball to go around, and two players who command the ball as much as each of them does individually would not work on one team.

ok think of it this way the ball would be in kobe's hands or lebrons hands the whole ****ing game....if one gets tired the other takes over...if one sits out the other is still out there on the court... They BOTH make their teamates better why? cause if a teamate is not feeling it they know lebron or kobe is fealing it... I would say that would be the team to be even if the rest of the team is scrubs.

Kobe has now learned to accept and even like having a second star on the same team, but I think it wouldn't be the same if he had another player that was threatening to be as good or maybe even better than he is.

In lower levels, this would be true. However, this is NBA. You will not win with scrubs. The whole team plus the coach has to be at least decent. Take a look at past NBA winners. You can't have the Coby Karls or Kwame Browns playing alongside Lebron/Kobe and expect to win championships.

Put in decent players like Odom, Derek Fisher, Ilgauskas, etc in the picture though, the story would change.

It's not an ideal match due to both's ball dominance, and overlap of playing styles...but even then they have such immense talent there would be some success. Now Dwight and Lebron, that would be a serious dynasty.

It wouldnt work.

However I do have a dream scenario where Cleveland signs and trades Bron to Orlando for Rashard Lewis, and Chris Paul signs with them when his contract is up.

Dwight
Hedo
Lebron
Bogans
CP3

Eww.
