    Bryant Should Testify

    Lebron James is the best player in the NBA. Kobe should be the first to testify.

    If the “we are all witnesses” slogan is true, then Kobe Bryant should be the first to testify. Lebron James is the best player in the NBA .

    If you caught the Cavaliers at Lakers game on ABC, then you saw a battle between two of the NBA’s biggest stars.

    And for the second straight game Lebron outplayed, on both sides of the ball, the self-appointed second-coming of Michael Jordan — especially in the fourth quarter.

    James who scored 40+ points for the fifth time this season is averaging 37 in his two games (both wins) against the Lakers. More impressively, though, is the defense he played on Bryant, shutting down the scoring great when it mattered.

    That what was a huge question most had about Lebron; Can he shut down the opposing teams’ best offensive player in the clutch?

    He’s done it twice to the most gifted offensive player in the league. What’s more amazing, is that James’ defense actually made Phil Jackson sit down Kobe, with his team trailing by four, late in the fourth quarter.

    Now if you know ANYTHING about Jackson you know that it would take that thing from “Cloverfield” (anyone know what that was?) attacking the Staples Center and going Artest on Bryant — for him to take Kobe out in that situation.

    James’ defense was so good and forced Bryant into bad shot after bad shot, so Jackson had to take Kobe out to send a message to the superstar.

    Kobe Bryant doesn’t get rattled often, but James has already done it to him twice.

    That’s why there shouldn’t be a debate anymore.

    I think Lebron winning a ring depends on whether or not Danny Ferry and the Cavs get him some more help.
    Drew Gooden, Big Z and Larry Hughes just aren’t getting it done. With Jason Kidd asking to be traded, that could be a good move for the Cavs. Take some of the ball-handling duties away from James.

    Lebron is not a proven clutch shooter so how is he the best player in the league. Lebron has had star quality ever since he joined the nba. Kobe didn’t he had to play little brotha to shaq. Remember this Kobe made his first all-star game on the bench of the lakers could Lebron James do that!

    Kobe will win a title with the “Shaq-Less Lakers” before Lebron and his weak supporting cast will. With that being said, Kobe is the best player in the world and even King James will tell you that.

    First of all Shaq won three titles with the help of Kobe. A Shaq in his prime was going to bring a championship so anyone who got to ride on the train was blessed. A great tandem with another lesser all-star will just show how great he is.

    So playing 2 good games against Kobe means the debate is over. Thats insane!! Lebron himself has stated several times that Kobe is the best player in the world. Its kinda like this Lil Wayne/ Jay Z debate. Wayne has made it clear that Jay is the best rapper, but Wayne fans still want to give him the crown.

    Lebron might disagree with you homey. He puts Kobe as the best. Google it. While Lebron is a beast, Kobe is the best right now all around. Lebron still got to learn how to keep his teammates in the game.

    Is that why Lebron repeatedly comes on tv and tells the world that KOBE IS THE GREATEST…hmmm
