If all three players were in their prime...

Before you say anything, think about when Kobe is in an absolute zone. 81 poiints in 4 quarters, 62 points in three quarters, 30 points in 1 quarter. If you take Kobe in his prime, and when he is in a zone, he can destroy Michael Jordan and Lebron James in their prime with relative ease.

Now on any other night, it's a toss up between Kobe or Jordan.

But regardless, Kobe or Jordan would destroy Lebron one on one.

Remember in Kobe's prime he could lockdown any player. Were not talking chase down blocks or all that other stuff, were talking about one on one, moving your feet, and taking guys out of their game:







Kobe is probably the best one on one player in the game, both offensively, and arguably, defensively when he tries.

He wouldn't destroy them but he could win, he's one of the greatest scorers ever.

Kobe vs Jordan game to 21 win by 2

Jordan wins
21-19

I look at it this way kobe shoots 45% for his career primarily from the perimeter so if he takes 20 shots 9/20
Jordan shot 49% for his career mixture of inside and outside dominance so if he takes 20 shots 10/20

Its that ONE shot that separates Jordan from Kobe

But at the same time as great as Jordan was defensively he has never had to guard a player the caliber of Kobe Bryant in the 90's

as far as Kobe vs Lebron ?

Yes lebron would be unstoppable going to the basket but how would lebron stop kobe inside and outside
Kobe has way more complete offensive game and since its one on one kobe would be able to be more physical on lebron so i would give kobe the edge and win

its a battle of offensive skills vs raw athletics..

but even in kobes athletic prime he still had a great one on one game heck tracy mcgrady in his prime offensive versatility is better than lebron one on one

In a best of 7 series, Kobe's inconsistencies would make him lose the series 9 out of 10 times.

Thanks for the great rebuttle.

Remember this is a best of 7 series, and I am talking about MJ Vs. Kobe here. Michael Jordan was far more consistent than Kobe is and was.
In a best of 7, playing to 21 game with players that are basically a wash, it comes down to consistency. It doesn't matter who the "better scorer" is if his shooting percentage isn't a good efficiency. MJ was far more consistent, took better shots, scored just as well as Kobe did, if not better.

Kobe's shot selection would hurt him.

Kobe's inconsistencies of forcing shots would make him lose the series 9 out of 10 times. I stand by that.

But Kobe was also better at making contested shots....I think that could come in handy one on one

You can't compare what they've done or what they do in an organized professional ball game vs simple one-on-one. Kobe seems like the ultimate one-on-one player

No one is destroying MJ one-on-one with relative ease. Not a prime MJ.

I'd give Kobe the edge one-on-one vs. MJ. It would be a tight match, but if we're talking strictly one-on-one basketball, great offense will trump great defense any day. Kobe has arguably the most refined offensive skillset of all time and is probably the best "bad-shot maker" in NBA history. Both of these would be to his advantage in a one-on-one match.

LeBron would probably lose to both because his game isn't based around one-on-one isolation like Kobe or MJ and because his offensive game isn't as refined as either of them.

That's great logic, where do you deduce that from?

You couldn't have got that from watching Kobe Play Bow-wow, right?

And you couldn't have got your opinion being an unbiased realist.

Talking down to Windu doesn't make your opinion correct.
