September 20, 2010 my son Landon was born and my life has changed dramatically, for the better. I am passionate about sports and writing. I follow the Sacramento Kings and San Francisco 49ers very closely and have done so for as long as I can remember. I'm a perfectionist to a fault. I take a great deal of pride in everything I do. My goal is to someday work in sports media in some capacity. Thank you and I hope you enjoy my articles.

    About you recent article about Kobe vs. Lebron,

    I love how you just base Kobe on his playing now when he is 32 years old... Everyone knows he is getting old with his limited minutes, which is why the Lakers got Ron Artest so he could guard the best player. Now, when Kobe was actually in his prime, he played tenacious defense go youtube it and he has the awards to prove it. If we are going to be bias and talk recent years like last year in the playoffs. He shut down Russel Westbrook who at the time when guarded against fisher, was a huge scoring threat. But when Kobe decided to guard him he played awful. The All defensive team is voted by the coaches not by popularity. Now on to scoring, this really surprised me and shows that you are bias to Lebron and stats mean everything to you because the great thing about watching Kobe play is his amazing scoring ability even when HE IS NOT IN HIS PRIME(Sorry i had to emphasis this because you keep on referring to Kobe now even though he is old and injured, but the injured part i'll get more on that later) Watch how Lebron scores? Where does he get his points from? Yeah, driving, driving, and more driving. His offensive game is driving to the lane and either make it or get to the line and cmon he does get every call. Now he is such a good driver because he is the most athletic player in the NBA. So the more driving he does the better his fg% is. Now look at Kobe? In his prime he could shoot consistently, at will, and drive. He was a nightmare, which is why he double triple teamed, and you have to consider his shot selection. His shot selection is awful but even that he is still an amazing scorer because he makes them, sometimes he misses and sometimes he forces shots but he can shoot midrange, fadeaway, the three, and the fadeaway three. Now rebounding, your right they are playing two different postion and rebounding factors height, vertical jump, and situation. Well lebron is two inches taller than Kobe and yah that doesn't really matter because its just two inches. Lebron has way more ups than Kobe which allows him to get more rebounds. And since you love mentioning oh he has this or that. Then Kobe has three rebounders as of now who can easily and do average 10 rebounds(Lamar gets like 8 rebounds off the bench which is amazing). So it really isn't Kobe's fault that he can't get rebounds off of three of the best bigman. Now accomplishments, Kobe has played a huge huge role in the playoffs for the Lakers because when Kobe was in his prime with Shaq. Who was the one in the fourth quarter? Kobe easily because of "Hack a Shaq", which made Kobe the one to deliver the close games. Now since you like pulling out dates and years. Look at Kobe in 2001 playoffs, Kobe deserves a biggier recognition for his performance because he was the main guy. Now MVP, now this is where reputation and the media comes in place not All-Defensive team. Now don't get me wrong Lebron well earned his two mvp awards, but think about it? Who was the best player of the decade? Kobe easily. Now think of his great seasons where he didn't get MVP 2005... He got robbed but since he cheated on his wife and was accused of rape that greatly hurt his reputation and the media shits on him. He averaged 35 points even though he had the worst teammates in Laker history and it was worse than the 2007 Cavs who went to the Finals, but i will get into more of that later. The year after that he deserved MVP. Ok i have to go and in my next comment i will finish everything i didn't mention such as clutch, teammates, and legacy. Nice article i admit i do have more respect for Lebron but hope you get my side but a little bias and i hope you understand why people think Kobe is right there near Jordan when i finish my next post. Peace
