Why do so many Lebron fans think he is better than Kobe when former and current NBA players all say Kobe was better?

Well, because it isn’t true. Most former and current NBA players do not think Kobe is better than Lebron.

This is a delusion that Kobe fans seem to have. A lot of Kobe fans always point out to me that NBA players all say Kobe is better than Lebron but I’m like.. who? Which players? Show me the evidence.

Charles Barkley?


Barkley said – and I quote – MJ, Kareem and Bron were the best players of their eras and you cannot compare eras. Don’t see anything about Kobe there.

Larry Bird?


Bird said Lebron is ‘possibly’ the greatest ever. The quote Kobe fans often link to him where he said he’d ‘rather play with Kobe’ comes from an outdated 2012 interview where in the same interview he told Bill Simmons Lebron was ‘easily’ the most dominant player at that time.

Michael Jordan?


Jordan only said that Kobe ‘could have’ beaten him 1v1 because he ‘stole’ all his moves. So this says nothing about whether he thought Kobe was better than Lebron or not.



Shaq called Bron the GOAT after he broke Kareem’s record

Paul Pierce?


Pierce said Lebron was GOAT after Bron broke Kareem’s record

Allen Iverson?


“LeBron, I think, to me is the best overall basketball player that we’ll ever see. If you look in the dictionary and look up basketball player, there’ll be a picture of LeBron.



Giannis called Lebron his GOAT.

Kevin Durant?


KD called Lebron his goat as well.

Current NBA players?


Lebron is far ahead of Kobe in the GOAT poll voted on by current NBA players.

So tell me Kobe fans, where are you getting this ‘NBA players all pick Kobe over Lebron’ stuff from? outdated quotes from 10+ years ago?
