Kobe or Lebron?... Or Jordan?

Kobe or LeBron?... Or Jordan?
The question that will be asked for the ages...
Or at least until Gilbert Arenas becomes the greatest NBA player of all time (Go Wizards!).
But we have to look at the stats, and I will admit that LeBron James is a better all around player than Kobe, but there is a difference between the greatest all around player ever and the greatest player ever. Which also applies to scoring in Kobe's case and the case of other guys like Wilt Chamberlain.
Now lets take a look!
Final Thoughts:
LeBron may be the best player in the game today, but like I stated in the video he has not yet reached the accolades that Kobe has. He may in the future, but we cannot base our judgements on what we think that LeBron COULD do in the future or how many rings he MIGHT win.

Jerry Buss Tribute

Jerry Buss was the great Lakers owner who just passed at 80. Buss had and will be remembered for having a great spirit and desire to win. He led the Lakers from 1979 until his passing in February 2013. During that time, the Lakers continued to build and become a storied franchise.

Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant and Shaq are just three of the incredible players Buss paid big bucks for. In the NBA, there are usually two types of owners: owners that want to win it all and owners simply looking to make some bucks.

What kind of owner was Jerry Buss? Undoubtedly an owner that would pay whatever it took to win. If you love great basketball, you've got to love Jerry Buss simply because of that! Add on to that a great personality, a desire to make the Lakers the topic in LA and the money to do all that and you've got a recipe for success!

Only Jerry Buss knew how to whip up the Lakers as he did. Jerry Buss will be sorely missed in LA and in the NBA. Truly an amazing person who wanted the best for his team. Condolences to the Buss family. Hope all is mighty fine in their world and they're taking their loss well.

Jerry Buss may be gone, but his forum gold and blue blood will be forever a part of the Los Angeles Lakers!
