Kobe vs Lebron
Nowadays, when somebody talks about their favorite NBA Basketball player , Kobe Bryant and Lebron James are always the top two that come up in such conversations. These conversations are brought up because of their remarkable performances since the start of their basketball careers from a young kid to the professionals. Kobe Bryant plays as a 6 foot 6 inch shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers and Lebron James plays as a 6 foot 8 inch small forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers and is referred to as King James. Kobe Bryant has played 18 seasons in the NBA and has a lot of basketball experience while James has been in the league for 11 seasons, which shows Kobe has more basketball knowledge about the game than him and also has achieved more than Lebron. On the basis of an individual approach,stamina and athleticism we can say Lebron has better understanding towards the game of basketball and he can all by himself give tough time to his opponents.
It is extremely tough to name one a better player than the other because each player has his own recognitions in the world of basketball. Kobe Bryant is really known as a scorer and his ability to put the ball through the basket and come clutch in time of tension leading his team to five championship titles as a Los Angeles Laker. Lebron is known as a facilitator. He is immensely athletic and will be remembered for his huge dunk Throwdowns and has two championship titles with the Miami Heat in his 4 years played there. They both play as the backbone of the teams they play for , using different styles. Lebron prefers to play in a very defensive mode because of his body strength and athleticism which is 250 Lbs of muscle while also maintaining the cadence of the game offensively to give him an advantage over Kobe Bryant on the other hand who isn't as athletic as Lebron but has size of close to 213 Lbs but plays aggressively offensively and takes advantage of any of his opponents' weaknesses.
Both players have an exceptional style of play . If we tried to elaborate on their game on the court , we would definitely be leaning toward Lebron with the opinion that he is very active defensively, he's a great team leader and tries to keep the game going at his own pace. Lebron has a more humanitarian attitude towards the game and is more of a team player who would do anything to satisfy his teammates and of course get the win while Kobe Bryant, though very aggressive offensively and somewhat defensively, is sort of a selfish player who cares more about individual statistics and winning than his team's satisfaction. This brings us to their audience supports that has a lot to say about these players. Since Kobe Bryant is an old veteran player who has made records in NBA History during his prime , has more accomplishments and has played versus the greatest opponents in basketball such as Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, makes him have more fans and crowd support giving him an edge over Lebron James though fabulous, but still a young basketball player compared to Kobe as Lebron quotes " In high school , I always dreamed of playing in the NBA looking at Kobe as my role model ."
In conclusion , it's a fact that winning games is the best statistics of all and it is the only option we are left with when comparing a player's performance to another. If we look into both players' performances, we can say that contribution made every night in the arena has been always at their best. Regardless of the accomplishment , fan support or whatever that makes people prefer one player's talent , we should take a more critical look to decide who is the better player in terms of leadership, facilitating and the perfect fit for the team they play for. In the end, we can say that though Lebron is a young player to Kobe Bryant in relation to experience, Lebron is still the King of this basketball planet and nobody has surpassed him just because of aggressive attitude or making his opponent helpless in the game. Just his natural abilities and role on his team, exceed anybody else's .He believes in a humanitarian play style and when he is out there to play, keeps his mind focus and concentrated his job, the one thing in this wide world he is best at. Lebron James has more to learn while getting to the peak of his abilities and to keep dominating in the NBA.
