I've been a Lakers fan all my life, so you know who my vote is (the guy with more experience and more championship rings). Post your opinion here, and I will tally them in the end. I will be posting a hub about these two, so be sure to follow me and stay tuned for that.
What are you asking?
Are you asking for opinions on who is better right now or who has the better resume over time? Kobe is older and has more miles on his body than LeBron, and if you are asking who is the better player in March 2010, I would give the edge to LeBron James, based upon relative youth and athleticism. Certainly Bryant's athleticism rivaled James when Bryant was younger.
If you are asking who has had the best career, obviously Kobe Bryant has accomplished more than James has so far. It should be noted that when the Lakers were successful, Bryant had far more help than James has ever had in Cleveland. When Bryant had to carry a weaker team, he was no more successful than James has been.
So... what exactly are you comparing here?
With no further idea of what you're looking for in a response, I will opt for James.
BTW: In a few years, you might need to include a write-in vote for Kevin Durant.
I was asking who is better right now. Based on the fact that Kobe won the 'Ship last year, I'm definitley going with Kobe, even though I am a little biased. Who knows? Maybe Lebron will end up being better...He has to win first though.
Ehhh...championships are not all about one player. I think that Kobe has better personnel surrounding him, for sure. Based on your stance, I would say the Lakers are a better team than the Cavs, which no way proves who is better (Kobe or Lebron).
How about this... would Lebron win with Kobe's team?...damn straight he would, without a doubt. And even a better question, would Kobe be as successful as Lebron with Lebron's team...I think not. Kobe has already proven he needs a great supporting staff in order to be successful. Look at what happened when Shaq left.
(shrugs) I think if I was to start a team right now, I would take Lebron over Kobe.
Looks like Kobe is taking an early lead with this argument...
all i can say is read this hub. this guy makes a lot of valid comparison between james and bryant based on their overall stats. plus, be sure to read some of the comments on there too as i made some valid points on his hub as well. check it out

I'm a big lakers fan, and I've always hated Lebron James with a passion. Over the years he has become a more evolved basketball player, but Kobe Bryant has continued to age so impressively that he rightfully gave...

According to Scottie Pippen when ask to compare LeBron and Michael together, he said that Michael was a much better scorer. However, he says that LeBron is clearly a much better player over all. What do you...

I am interested in seeing how people think these 3 great players match up. So rank Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, and Michael Jordan 1,2,3. If you think Jordan should not be included in this because he is not a current...

With the previous and recent speculation that Lebron James is overrated I figured, Let me ask THE question. "King James" as some call him was coined as the "next Jordan" even before entering...

I'm not sure giving away Odom was the right thing to do, but it seems like it's a play to open up some money to bring in the next major star to replace Kobe Bryant as he nears retirement. Don't get me wrong, Kobe...
