    The Debate: Best player in the NBA right now


    I have to go with Kobe Bryant, he just KILLS the other team, just flat our ruthless on the court. Lebron is #2, but i think he needs to lose the ridiculous headband, its holding back his mean streak.

    Yeah its def betwenn those two. Im going with Lebron though. Kobe is just a flat out ball hog. I think Lebron carries his team and gets best out of them like Jordan did with the bulls.

    Jordan was also a ball-hog in the same sense as Kobe. I would also have to say Kobe plays with a bunch of softies, so he almost needs to step it up. The way Kobe is playing now reminds me of the bulls/knicks series when Jordan just went f*cking nuts and just dunked and screamed at Ewing.

    It could really go either way. Kobe plays slightly better defense. Lebron's numbers are better. It's a toss-up. We'll have to see how they finish the season. I'd give it to Lebron though, admittedly due to Kobe's sh*t personality.

    Easily an MVP candidate in the future, but not yet. The guy is a freak, good man too.

    Howard is definitely a freak, but he needs more of a mean streak in him.

    I think obviously down the line Lebron will be known as one of the top 5 players of all time. He seems much more motivated this year and his defense is improving, but its definitely not as tenacious as Kobe's. At least Cleveland got rid of Hughes and Gooden though, it looked at times like James was ready to kill them during certain games.

    a few weeks ago it would have been King James without a doubt. But KB has changed his game a bit now that Gausol is there, and for the better. He's starting to look for the open player more and is forcing less shots. As much as I cant stand him he is now playing like the best player in the NBA.

    Kobe just keeps making a case for himself, 17 in the 4th quarter last night at Sacto.

    KG will always be my favorite player of all time, the closest I lived to a NBA city was Minnesota but he still is my favorite after leaving. I'd have to pick him even though hes probably not the best.
    I like watching Chris Paul.
    Second favorite player Wally Szczerbiak, he pwns n00bs hard.

    havent watched or followed NBA much the past years but i dont like Kobe period. the way he plays, the way he looks, the way he acts.....sh1t. I will say he is a great player. Lebron is doing great in his progression. Ive always liked KG just because he is a guy id like on my team no matter what position i played. He can do it all for a big man and is totally unselfish all he cares about is the win. James would get my vote for best player this year.

    I came to my conclusion by who I would want to have the ball in the 4th quarter while my team is down. The answer hands down is Kobe. The same cannot be said for KG, although he is a great player. Lebron last night though made the knicks just look stupid, he is not far behind kobe.

    thats true. I mean kobe is a clutch player like him or not....he has the guts to take the final shot miss or make.

    kobe...he has the skills to lay back until the 4th Q and takeover a game, basically outscoring the other team.

    I don't watch the NBA, but would you guys say that the top 10 NBA players are black? Def. not being racist... just another reason to justify that not all races are created equal.

    I play basketball like a football player... against 13 year olds!!! ARGGGGHHH!!!

    Thats one way of looking at it. The other way is this: If you were starting a franchise which one player would take. IMO that would be James. Kobe isn't the most well liked player in NBA or even his own team. If Duncan was 5 years younger I would want him.

    Nowitzki won the MVP last year, and Nash the 2 years before that, so whitey's aren't that bad.

    Kobe has the stronger supporting cast right now, Lebron though is carrying that sorry ass Cavs team, shades of Jordan Pre Pippen and Horace Grant days.

    Oh how I miss the Bulls in the 90's, especially watching Bill Cartwright shoot free throws.
