      Some savory moments. 34 yrs of age (a year older than LeBron is now) and averaged 27 pts on the season (same as LeBron this year) Kobe blows by Klay Thompson and Steph Curry, left Harisson Barnes and Andrew Bogut frozen flat-footed and postetized David Lee. Followed up with a double posterization of Chris Humphries and Gerald Wallace. My favorite moment was from 2015 (36 yrs of age) Kobe blows by the Rocket’s Trevor Ariza (the ultimate perimeter defender) and posterizes (rim protector deluxe) Clint Capela.

        It is as if he never existed, as Allen Iverson has observed. Kobe Bryant is every bit on their level and should always be in that discussion. Forget about the statistics, he was fundamentally more sound than either one of those guys. His footwork was superior, he mastered every shot on the court and his defense was every bit as great as theirs, probably better than LeBron overall. He was a killer like Jordan, something that LeBron is finally figuring out. What has taken LeBron 13 seasons was something that was innate with Kobe at a young age. Let’s face it, we know best because we drank that delicious Kobe Kool-Aid for 20 years. I haven’t read one thing about the Jordan-LeBron GOAT debate because it’s insulting without adding Kobe into the mix.

    I wonder how good Ju would be if he hadn’t gotten injured in his first game, and sat out the whole season.

      Probably not a whole lot different.

      he’d be a year better.

      actually, maybe the year off helped him focus…

    Kinda hard to beat the GSW straight up. But when they get to shoot 3 times as many free throws on their home court…..

    Kevin Durant
    Paul George
    James Harden
    Kyrie Irving

      In no particular order…
      Lebron
      Steph
      KD
      Harden
      Russ

      AD right there on the cusp

        Can you just imagine creating a superteam with 3 of those top 5 guys? Like, say, KD, Harden and Russ. Just add a highflying shotblocker PF and a championship caliber C and, tada, Championships!

        Oh, wait……

        Thanks for the reply MS. If AD forced his way into the Top 5, who would be forced out? Surprised Kawhi didn’t make the cut.

          Even before all the drama this year, I’ve never felt Kawhi was a team leader even though he was the best player on the roster. Spurs haven’t been the same since Timmy left even though he was a shell of himself his last coupla years.

          I think in the next few years we’ll see a changing of the guard and the top 5 will be:
          AD
          Giannis
          Embiid
          Ben Simmons
          Porzee/Donovan Mitchell/KAT

      Watching most of the PO games, but especially OKC and Cavs (PG and LBJ). I have said this since the TD, that Cavs are not good. Our young group is way more talented and would be such a great landing place for LBJ. Would love to have PG as well. These are my first two choices. Keeping Randle would be great if we can. No interest in all those injured guys.

        He was impressive tonight, but I would much rather have Kawhi. LeBron will be great for the next couple of seasons. Leonard will be for the next 10.
        I’m fine with adding PG.
