Kobe Bryant vs. LeBron James This question never gets old. The debate will be around for years to come. So men and women of TF, what is your take on the best player in the NBA right now. Not a year, 3 years or even 10 years from now. We're not talking about the guy who you want to build your team around. We're talking who can school who in a pick-up game, who has the better jump shot, 3-point shot, clutch abilities, fundamentals, etc. I want to see where you people are at in terms of this old debate. Living in L.A., you already know who I got. Putting the bias aside, I think that LeBron is the bigger dude and can get his shot way easier at the rim. But Kobe is unmatched in his footwork, killer instinct mentality, and drive. His shot is streaky, but when he's on, he's unguardable. Granted, you can say that about a lot of players, but I truly think Kobe has the 'it' factor that can't be replaced. P.S. LeBron James is Dwayne Wade's sidekick.
