Poetry in motion.
As I was watching last night’s Lakers/Magic I came to the conclusion that all of the talk about either Kobe Bryant or LeBron James possibly being considered the best to ever play the game is ridiculous.
Don’t misunderstand me on this one. I’m not taking anything away from Kobe or LeBron. But to even compare them to the original #23 is just disrespectful.
Most people just put them through the simple eye test and think that’s all there is to it.
Do the mathematics.
0 Rings + 0 Finals MVP’s – 1 Finals Series loss = LeBron James
3 Rings + 0 Finals MVP’s + 1 Three Peat – 2 Finals Series losses = Kobe Bryant
6 rings + 6 Finals MVPs + 2 Three Peats – 0 Finals Series losses = G.O.A.T.
(No shots @ Bill Russell, but that was a different league)
