Love him or hate him (I'm a big fan!) LeBron is probably the best SF in NBA history and one of the top handful of guys in NBA history period.
The way he left Cleveland has annoyed many, but i personally let the on court stuff do the talking.
Durant may get there, he is younger, but there is still a gap between him and LeBron imo. Could get there, also a big fan, for me the current top 3 players when all healthy are LeBron, Durant, Rose.
Kobe has played 5-10 years longer and 5-10 years older, so currently Kobe has more titles and many would say a more impressive overall record, but compare once both him and LeBron are retired, id back LeBron to overtake Kobe, for me he almost already has considering LeBron didnt basically walk straight into the league and play with a MVP level Shaq.
Had LeBron done that he would have atleast 2-3 titles more and i dont think LeBron would have forced Shaq out of town either so could have been a real dynasty.
Kobe is great but i put an asterix next to the 5 titles, as he wasnt the MVP or best player on his team for the first 3, LeBron was clearly the best player on every team he has played on from the start of his career, so if anything he has done it tougher imo.
For me if you want to work on titles its 2-1 in Kobes favour and LeBron has alot more years left in him to get atleast 1 more, i reckon/hope he will have 3-5 by the time he is done, and as the best player on the team.
