If Lebron wins two, then that will be tying him with Kobe because Kobe rode Shaq to three rings - Shaq was finals MVP all three of those titles (and to be completely fair - one of those titles they do not deserve because the Sacramento Kings were straight up robbed). Lebron stated judging greatness on titles alone is a bit unfair, and he's dead right. Is Bill Russell the GOAT instead of Jordan? Using Jordan's own logic - yeah he is I guess.
Magic Johnson: "If MJ and LBJ played 1 on 1 ten times, MJ would win all ten!"
I think it's kinda laughable to think Lebron wouldn't win a single game to be honest.
Lebron > Kobe all day long. More clutch and a far easier guy to like. He's not even close to the same level of douchebag that Kobe Bryant is. As a Celtics fan - Lebron's notions to the Heat crowd last year to get Miami fans to stop booing but to cheer for the Celtics last game as the Big 3 - did not go unnoticed. Nor should it by other fans of other teams. The guy's biggest flaw has been "The Decision" which to be fair was a joke, but he was like 24/25 and still a kid. He's not out raping people or anything.
Wow I dont think ive ever seen a fellow Bostonian say something like this. I gotta deal with Celtic Homers everyday. One saying PP had a better year than K Love last year and the other calling James a ballhog and in the same sentence said he'd rather play with Kobe over James. Hell even today he said Carmelo is 1st half MVP lol.
Its just funny how a guy who really doesnt care about scoring is averaging more points per game career wise over KB. Thats why I feel like if LBJ can win another title and Finals MVP they should be about equal because James could possibly be a 4 time MVP too.
