Kobe definitely better at this point in their careers. He last won Championships when he was 30 and 31 for 5 total.
Honestly, I can't find a measure where Kobe was better. His teams certainly were. Like when he shot 5-20 in game seven and gasol and crew bail him out. Lebron plays ****ty and the heat lose period

Damn, I didn't realize Kawhi had went off so much.
Last they mentioned he had 10 pts, 10 rebs and 3 ast.
He now has 20 pts, 14 rebs, 5 ast, 3 stl, 3 blks.

He's the most energetic dude on the court the past two games. Silent assassin

No. He had minor hamstring and ankle injuries but nothing major.

Maybe I'm confusing him with kyrie. Well regardless, wouldn't shock me if he came back strong, but I understand the concern

Spoelstra looked shell-shocked.

Had a Dan Hawkins look.

I know Artest pulled it with some great clutch play for the Lakers in 2010, but 2009 was Kobe's team. Gasol was good for the Lakers in 2009, but they didn't have much outside of that.

Gotta give it to Kobe right now.

We can agree to disagree on that. Kobe is awesome no doubt though.

If Lebron jumps shop and bails on Miami, I think respect for him is going to go down. The problem is, they haven't developed any other role players.

Kyrie had a potentially major ligament injury in his toe at Duke. Limited him to 11 games in college.
He's also missed at least 11 games in each of his first 3 seasons in the NBA. Total of 49 so far.

I think he'd be smart if he jumped ship. It's sinking.

Yeah it's sinking, but it takes time to build chemistry and become comfortable. Lebron has a couple years left in his prime. He'll be 30 in December. Can you see him doing another "taking my talents to South Beach"? That would be kinda lame.

I think the NBA is a much better product when teams like the Spurs win.

The Heat were set up to be a short term dynasty but a effective one.
It will be a sinking ship but the question is does LeBron want to play with someone else more than Wade?
We know he wants to play with Carmelo or Paul but neither is realistic at this point.

Ha. Heat got spanked again tonight. I love it and I don't really like the NBA. Except on the PS3.

Man they were supposed to be a long-term dynasty. They thought they were going to win more than Jordan. That's why they all signed 6 year contracts. All that cheatin' caught up with Wade or something. Bosh done fell off the map.

It's hard to imagine any other team in the East being championship caliber even with Lebron. I don't think he really has anywhere else to go.

No, they were set up for a 4 year run. That's why they got ETO's in their contracts in case it didn't work.
Those 3 tool bags are the ones that were feeling themselves and assuming they would run roughshod over the NBA without a challenge.

Duncan with the most playoff double doubles of any player in the history of the game. That's a lot of postseason games. Along with regular season games it's crazy to see him play so young for his age.

OK anyone could still win this and no way I'd say its over and jinx it. But to be the team much of the media calls boring the Spurs sure our fun to watch.

The Heat may want to look to move for Carmelo Anthony much quicker then once thought needed.
Like say tomorrow.

It's easier when you don't have to carry the rest of the team on your back. He isn't required to play like a superstar every game.
