As we all know, Kobe Bryant received the fifth Championship ring of his career in the NBA this month. For LeBron James, he has yet to reach that level of success. Kobe seems as if he is one of the more diligent players, as people say, but if you look at both situations, who is really the better player?
Kobe Bryant has more rings than LeBron James, only because of the anonymous fact that LeBron had a torrid team. LeBron James has lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to so many opportunities of hopes and chances. But if he is the only one scoring for his team, who is there to help?
How can LeBron lead a team and obtain the ultimate victory off a one man army? Sure, he had Antwan Jamison and all that, but that is not a real good supporting cast compared to Kobe’s or others. It was just the same as the 2008-09 season, where LeBron still had to lead the Cavs all by himself. And he got 60 wins out of that. But not a NBA Finals ring or even an appearance.
But if you have a team like LeBron’s, how do you expect to possibly come back against the others? How do you, in any matter, expect one man to beat loads of others in a war?
LeBron consistently leads this team to the playoffs and has not failed them. If Kobe “Black Mamba” Bryant has to really go with a one-man army or one-on-one with LeBron, The King would be the winner any day. I have my bet on it.
Kobe is only Kobe because of Pau Gasol, Ron Artest, Shannon Brown, Lamar Odom, Derek Fisher, Andrew Bynum, etc. and other previous supporting casts with his earlier championship squads that included Shaquille O’Neal and Rick Fox among others.
He would be the savior, the great and amongst all “amazing.” Well, at least in my opinion and most others.
So now the question is, will LeBron head to free agency in hopes of finding a team that will allow him to reach that next level of greatness?
Well, in fact, that is a possibility and he has high chances in any matter of time and place. He has made a great decision, too, by doing this. If he stayed there, his reputation wouldn’t have changed and neither would Kobe’s
He will stay as a great player, a superior player to Kobe in many aspects. Kobe is too manual, he is automatic, and then grabing a couple extra rings because of his generally amazing team.
And in any anticipation of success he gets…he will do it!
He is LeBron James.
