Kobe VS. Lebron
Kobe Bryant and Lebron James are two of the best players in the NBA right now. Kobe Bryant’s points in his career are 27,868, and Lebron has 17,362. Kobe Bryant plays for the Los Angeles Lakers, and Lebron James plays for the Miami Heat, and they’re both big teams. Kobe and Lebron are both very well known players. Right now there is a big debate between Kobe and Lebron about who is the best player. There are a lot of loyal fans like me that are picking sides. My opinion is that Kobe Bryant is better than Lebron James because Kobe has Five rings; he is a winning player, and his M.V.P stats are stronger
One reason Kobe Bryant is better then Lebron James is because Kobe has Five championships and Lebron has none. Kobe Bryant is one of the main players for the Lakers. Kobe won in the years of 2000, 2001, 2002, 2009, and 2010. From 2000 to 2002 they won three straight championships, and in 09 to 10 they won two straight. In 2010, in the finals, it went to game seven and they won it against the Celtics. These victories prove that he is a great player.
A second reason is that Kobe Bryant is a winning player. In 2002-03 Kobe Bryant had a Nine game streak of 40 points or more. Another example is his M.V.P status. In 2009-10 he was the NBA finals M.V.P, and in 2008 he was M.V.P for the season. These awards show that a lot of people in the NBA think he’s one of the best players in the league.
Some people think Lebron is better because he is bigger and taller and younger. He’s gotten a M.V.P award, and he’s been to the all star games all of the years he played in the NBA and he scored more in his first year than Kobe. However in the six years that Lebron played he hasn’t won a championship, but Kobe won a championship in his fourth year. This shows that Kobe is better because he can win a championship in four years
That is why I think Kobe is better because he has Five rings; he is a winning player, and his M.V.P status. He is an inspiring player because I remember as a little kid with my brother watching on T.V. Kobe hitting game winning shots, and that is why he is the best player in the NBA.
