    I'm personally a Golden State Warriors fan, I've been watching Steph since about 2011, and the guy is literally tearing up the league, I don't think I've ever witnessed a better 3pt shooter than him.
    But I have to say he's got some serious competition, and the main person I had in mind is LeBron James of the Cavs
    Its James world and everyone else lives in it.

    Fair enough it's all subjective haha.

    Melo defo got a smooth jumper but he doesn't fully extend his arm/lock his elbow (Danny Green does the same thing) which irks me for some reason lol.

    You gotta admit though, Stephen Curry is making quite the impact in the league this season
    But I can't deny LeBron's INSANE Playoffs Finals performance, 29.7 PPG

    First player in Finals history to lead both teams in all 5 categories: Points, Assists, Rebounds, Blocks, Steals. Just ridiculous.

    I've never seen anybody like him, if he does it again next year, well.
    Let's just say MJ and Kobe have a fierce competitor.
    But let's just clear it up right here, The Black Mamba is no doubt, possibly the greatest NBA player of all time

    Actually, that's an official question.

    Michael Jordan or Kobe Bryant

    Quote this and then give a reason why

    I was just about to say lmao, the only people who put Kobe in a conversation with Jordan (and now unarguably LeBron above Kobe), are LA fans. And people who are obliged to give Kobe the edge like Shaq who says 'duh 5 rings > 3, Kobe best', not sure if he believes it but then again it's Shaq. He may

    Hmmm I don't agree with that but the two of us arguing is going to go nowhere, lol. And I'm sure there's countless people who put Kobe and MJ in the same convo, I'd like to think most people lol, not just LA fans.

    Who's the closest player we've ever seen to Michael Jordan, the GOAT?? C'mon man don't bull**** lol. Be honest.

    Wow why is there so much Kobe hatred on this thread :lol:

    Yeah Kobe, but that's because he took his game, it doesn't make him comparable. Kobe was a poorer mans Jordan, which is a valid observation sure. Does that mean he's better than the GOAT centres? Or Timmy/Malone? Or LeBron/Bird? Or Magic? Nah

    And I'm not a Kobe hater, I like Kobe He's fun to watch, just like Curry. But no point putting him on a pedestal, it is what it is, and imo he ain't top 10 let alone in the GOAT conversation. Which btw he would be if people even entertained a MJ or Kobe debate.

    most of us here have just watched MJ videos on Youtube. did not see him live as we do now. we approved that he is the GOAT.
    Kobe is the MJ of our time.
    Same feelings happened when Kobe played.
    Kobe cannot be compared to Duncan or Malone. it is like comparing Allen Iverson to Grant Hill or Mike Bibby.
    Kobe has challenged any players of his generations, as LeBron is doing now.
    Durant himself said Kobe is his Legend.

    and Hey, I'm a Knicks Fan.

    If you think he's as good as MJ you're saying he has a claim to being the GOAT, or at least top 3, which is so wrong.
