So by his standards Bill Russell is the GOAT and Horry is better than MJ


I always thought it was a team game.

    If we talk about both of them at their prime, I'd choose Kobe over Lebron too. I think Lebron will ultimately be the better player, but Kobe has a "Win at all Costs" mindset that Lebron just doesn't have.

    He didn't pick kobe over him skillwwise or as the better player. He picked Bron over him currently but he said 5 rings >1.

    Since when did "Win at all Costs" mean "Can win a few big games." Nobody said Lebron wasn't a winner or won't put up big numbers. But there have also been games where it seems like he wilted under the pressure and fell short. The Championship series vs Dallas for instance. To me Kobe is less likely to do that. If you give them both equal teams, they will both do big things, but I think in the end you'll win more with Prime Kobe than Prime Lebron.

    As far as MJ goes, of course he would pick Kobe. Kobe is the closest to him when it comes to playstyle and attitude.

    Years ago in an interview Jordan stated that he didnt get recognition for his accomplishments until he won multiple titles. Up to then he was always looked at as not better than Bird or Magic, thats why he gave the answer he did because hes gonna give these dudes the same treatment he got.

    I still think tying team success to individual accomplishment is stupid, but it's the prevailing philosophy so what can you do.

    When was Kobe's prime tho. The Bolded is factually incorrect.

    Jordan made cop out answers for pretty much both.

    "Well right now I would say LeBron" well no shit Bron in his prime at 28 Kobe is 34.

    "But 5 is more than 1 every time so I say Kobe" No shit Mike that's kindergarten arithmetic.

    Niggas Always seem to forget Lebron Lost in the finals Twice, & Actually got swept the 1st Time. Lebron is just Now getting real confidence.

    However Shaq got Finals MVP Every year during their run, So IMO Kobe's 5 Rings wont be As significant once Lebron gets more.

    I think Lebron took alot too long to develop this confidence & Will to Win (which is why he will never compare to Jordan IMO), but He does still have a Great career Left to do all that Kobe has.
