Nick Wright needs to go back and watch Kobe talking to Chuck about what happened in game 7. This just shows you how ignorant he is. Talking about that and not realizing he's speaking to a guy that was on the team, lol. Seriously, this guy is so off-putting I can't even watch ESPN that much anymore. Fire this man.

NICK. ...I want you to take a look at this.... Since 2011, LEBRON while playing with 2 others ALL-STARS Went to the Finals 5 times without facing Real competition or hall of famers -caliber players in the East playoffs. and what about the Finals ? faced TWICE Tim Duncan 37 years old. and Manu Ginobili 36 . both out of their primes. and the only 2 times while in the East. faced TWICE in the playoffs Paul pierce 35 Kevin Garnett 36 ray Allen 35 all of them wasted. while Lebron's teams Had 2 and sometimes 3 ALL-STARS. CAN YOU PLEASE NAME THE REAL COMPETITION LEBRON HAS FACED SINCE 2011 ?

As the game keeps evolving, defense is becoming more and more irrelevant and offenses are taking off. It's easier to get numbers in this era because the pace is faster so players get more shots up, which leads to more rebounds, assist opportunities, steals and many other stats. If we are judging who is better by stats, Jordan scored more in a era where scoring was harder and less 3 pointers were attempted so most of his points were from 2 pointers. Lebron is a better passer but Jordan averaged about 7 or 8 assists and was flashy like lebron so it's not but a game and Lebron isnt a good free throw shooter, he doesnt have Jordan mid range or fade aways although he does dazzle us with fade aways and his crazy game winner against the Raptors was bonkers, but Jordan hit game winners in the finals and stood out in the finals everytime. Lebron has had a lot more inconsistencies in the playoffs than Jordan. Jordan retired 3 times so it's easy for Lebron to pass him in scoring and other categories. Lebron is still great though and I would put him at 2 or 3 all time.

The only thing I can tell is that Michael Jordan did everything he did in just 11 Seasons with the Chicago Bulls the guy is just totally insane pretty much the amount of points assists championships and then mvps and accolades in just 11 Seasons most of these people need over 20 Seasons to get it Jordan did it in 11 now imagine Jordan playing 20 Seasons that's an argument Jordans going to break all the records but what Michael Jordan wanted just past magic and bird because those were the guys in his era he did it he felt comfortable with his career and he retired and he's happy he don't even care about the media and anyone anymore because he accomplished and he is a successful person something that none of this people are

Nick Wright finally get shut up.when Kobe and Jordon played they weren't focus on packing the stats sheet.All Lebron has been focus on is packing the stats sheet like Westbrook is doing also.Kobe and MJ were real they didn't live their life to please the media and the public like Lebron did hence the media is repaying him now by having him in the Goat discussions, it's just ridiculous. Oh and another things I would take what ex players say over analyst because the know more about basketball analyst just watch the stats and the stats that count most (championships) MJ and Kobe is leading. Just to had without Kobe Shaw would not win any titles because all the next team would do is foul him because he would miss the free throws remember that Kobe save him also.

the fact that nick just said kobe was the best player in the world for 1 year is crazy he is the worst sports analyst ever he is unbelievable bias and a clear kobe hater. kobe was the best player in the world from 2004 until 2009 he couldn’t wake the playoffs cause he was the only star on his team but look what happened as soon as he got one more star he goes to finals 3 times idk why people view kobe the way they do but people need to go watch some old lakers games to remember i would suggest kobe’s 81 or him out scoring the mavs or his incredible performances in garden

Here is some history, starting with this question... In 1986, was Michael Jordan NOT the best player in the league? He average 37 points a game and he was NOT selected as the League MVP. His team was eliminated in the first round by the Celtics. This scenario justifies Jim Jackson's point... Magic Johnson was the league MVP that year and he actually won the NBA Finals to boot! So it's a matter of perspective. LeBron James has NEVER lost in the first round of the playoffs. Michael Jordan lost in the first round THREE times. It's a matter of timing, it's a matter of perspective, it's a matter of good teammates, coaches, etc... No one can put a solidified claim on GOAT because all of these variables play into it... Love them or hate them... Bernard King, Allen Iverson, Tracey McGrady, and Charles Barkley never won a Championship but is their greatness not solidified? We need to enjoy watching these players play while we can... Once they leave we're going to miss them!

Nick talks about the greatest player in the world losing in the first round of the playoffs while scoffing at Kobe Bryant, but Lebron could have easily lost in seven games this year to the Pacers had they passed the ball a little more at the end of the game instead of all that iso-offense. Lebron is clearly the best player in the world but certain match ups aren't favorable even to the best player. C'mon man

The fact is he hates Kobe Bryant so much that he will never acknowledge Kobe as being the greatest player (nextt to MJ), & over Lebron James!!!! And he is so closed minded on the Kobe sunject that no one cant get a word in edgewise!! The real reason Kobe dudnt get the MVP awards he was due,, is because he was disliked by the sports media people, Phol Jackson was Jordan's coach,. Kobe felt he could do whatever he wanted & didnt listen to Phil many times & a lot of people thought he got away clean, with a crime in Denver, Colorado!!!!

So the point is at the end of the day numbers can't always be a definitive basis to consider who's greater than who, but rather just one of the major factors to determine greatness.This is true coz numbers/stats is a tangible thing you can refer to.But greatnes "true" greatness goes beyond statistics people tend to forget that .

Nick is an idiot. Kobe was playing with Smush Parker, Kwame Brown & Luke Walton in the starting lineup with Lamar Odom the only viable player.

Even when kobe won his other two rings he had a stacked deck just like when lebron was with the heat he had two rings then he won one with irving then irving quit on em what if LeBron played with the mvp of the league shaq or someone like pippen his whole career..
