Judging by what some of you are saying.
From 2003-2012...Lebron James was not a superstar and/or not on Kobe Bryant's level.
As far as on court accolades no he wasn't. How does 5 rings to 0 make them even? I think you guys are factoring in commercials, shoes, and everything else that makes someone a superstar. I'm talking strictly on court. He was great but not comparable to Kobe in no way shape or form. How can you compare Lebron pre title to Kobe or Duncan?
You're right, though.
I mean, LeBron averaged nearly 201-10-5 on the court his rookie year.
Kobe averaged... a very little bit. On the court.
So Kobe wasn't a superstar until the final buzzer sounded against the Pacers in the Finals? Before that, he was... just nice w/ it, but not a superstar?
