Who's better? Kobe or Lebron?

At this point I'm really not sure anymore. I thought Kobe was better but Lebron seems to have stepped up his game. The Lakers have the better team and Lebron makes the Cavs being among the best teams of the NBA this season. Kobe seems a bit better technically but physically Lebron wins it. Lebron just recently broke a record of youngest player scoring 10.000 points in the NBA. I guess it's not really do-able to compare these all stars. They're different players and they both have their own style. Future will tell who will enter history as the better basketball player...

It's close to call. LeBron's progress from his first year to today has been insane!!! Every year he gets better, every year he becomes a more complete player. Considering how far the Cavs have gone since he came aboard is a statement enough on how good he is. This is without a supporting cast. Kobe on the other hand should have been named MVP twice already before last season. It's just right that he got it last year. It's sad that he will always have the question of "will he ever win one without the big Shaqtus?" but i think during those days they complimented each other pretty well. In my opinion , as of the moment Kobe is a more versatile player. Stat-wise LeBron is better.

Agreed, they are different, they have their own style, it is really difficult to confirm who is better. In my opinion, Kobe seems have better ability to get goals, Lebron seems more general, his ability for rebounding and assisting is better, maybe only the future can tell us who is better.

I quite agree that Kobe is better technically but physically LJ wins it. They're different players playing in their unique style. Kobe's compelling 81 scores impressed me a lot that he ought to be the most valuable players in the NBA nowadays. However both players are full of enthusiasm who makes the NBA gripping and successful...
