NBA's Top 50 Players: All-Star Panel Picks Kobe Bryant No. 1 Over LeBron James


Kobe or LeBron? LeBron or Kobe? Trying to settle on the best player in the NBA -- Lakers guard Kobe Bryant or Cavaliers forward LeBron James -- is no easy choice.

But, according to Sporting News' panel of experts, Bryant is the clear-cut No. 1. Bryant tops SN’s list of the 50 greatest players in the NBA today, as selected by a panel of 107 Hall of Famers, major award winners, executives, current players and coaches and other basketball experts.
Bryant received almost twice as many first-place votes as James, 62 to 34.
Heat guard Dwyane Wade was third on the list and received 11 first-place votes. Magic center Dwight Howard was fourth, and Spurs power forward Tim Duncan fifth.

Rounding out the top 10: Hornets point guard Chris Paul, Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett, Mavericks power forward Dirk Nowitzki, Nuggets small forward Carmelo Anthony, and Celtics small forward Paul Pierce.

"I think what we've seen from Kobe in the last two, three years is that he has become an incredible leader," former Lakers great Magic Johnson said about Bryant. "That was the only thing he had to do that was left on his resume. Before, there was no question that he was the best basketball player in the world, like he is now. He was dominant every night, but he didn’t take on that leadership role. ... Now, he is the total package."

If Cavs lose, do you think LeBron is gone?
« Reply #10 on: May 13, 2010, 09:39:22 AM »
Where do you think he'll go?

I've heard of LA, Chicago, NY.

Tonight will be his last game as a Cav. He will be in Chicago next year with Rose, and since the  Bulls have no coach, they're gonna make a pitch to get Phil Jackson back to Chicago.

Just bringing this thread back up, because I think we saw in the Cavs vs. Celtics series why Lebron is not on Kobe's level, yet.

Can't blame lebron for cavs losing, blame the whole team.

Ppl shouldn't over look the celtics, they may be older but they have players. Remember, they were the champs the year before.
