Jimmy Butler offered baskets to every teammate20 April 2020 / Miguel Coelho
The 30-year-old didn't want his teammates to remain rusty... So he gifted them baskets
First things first. Both are All-time greats with numerous accolades, with gigantic fanbases, and a case to be considered the best to ever do it. The Kobe vs LeBron is always a hot topic between fans, forums and even analysts. Sometimes hits the borderline ridiculous on where this type of discussion can take you. Let’s try for a moment appreciate the greatness of both these legends instead of putting one or another down.
Was Kobe considered a prolific scorer? Of course he was. His playstyle, the way he created his shots and how he made it look easy was easily compared to Michael Jordan. He had 50+ points against almost every team in the league, an insane achievement. However, people argue as well that when the ball reached his hands it wouldn’t get out of there anymore. He produced an insane amount of Field Goals, leading to very high scoring games. That was something he definitely got better as his career scrolled down, as he became more efficient and a more willing passer.
If you’ve seen Kobe and LeBron play, you would say Kobe’s easily the better scorer. But statistics can prove you wrong on that one. Even though he’s more focused on team play and finding the open man, James scoring was always an aspect taken for granted in his game. You could even say it was very much underrated. The player born in Akron, Ohio has already surpassed Kobe on FGs with 2000 fewer attempts, on a better efficiency and overall Field Goal percentage. So, who is the better scorer afterall? Could LeBron score close to 50 points every game with a different mindset? Is Kobe the most prolific scorer and LeBron the most proficient? Some interesting questions to discuss with the right people.
