The Top Ten

1 Kobe Bryant Kobe Bryant Kobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. Kobe Bryant has won 5 NBA championships with the Lakers and is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history.

An MJ type of player... I has a lot of things to say... But.. I will give you 3 facts about him

1st. -he is a better shooter than Michael

2nd-he is better than lebron and the decision he had done.

3rd-he is a better leader and a better example, he is making his teammates better in and off the court

Kobe's game play is just crazy he can do more than just dunk, he's clutch and he's never left his team to join up with 2 other super stars and lose an nba final

Lebron just chokes in the fourth quarter, he'll never be as good as kobe. To be the best player of all time, kobe just needs another championship and a few more consistent seasons to beat MJ

I would put him at 5. Ball hog, overrated, is good because of shaq, pau, etc. But he still is a great player.

2 LeBron James LeBron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Lakers.

You can't judge a player just because he's a better dunker. I don't think that LeBron is the best yet... I think that he has great potential to be the greatest basketball ever but he will have to work very hard to beat mj. But for the list of 2000 to 2011 I think we've seen enough to know that he passed kobe and everyone else. Look how the Cleveland just died without lebron this year. I think next year miami will do much better now that lebron and the heat got used to each other. I just don't think he was used to being with them at the beginning of the year and that's why they're not in first place, but next year they'll for sure be.

Lebron's not a better outside shooter than kobe but that's not his job. For that there's guards but of course lebron's a great shooter. Kobe isn't much better than lebron at shooting, but lebron is a much better inside and much stronger player than kobe is.

Now I'm not underrating kobe here, kobe is for sure the second greatest player and ...more

HE'S AWESOME. NO ONE CAN TOUCH THIS MAN. HE'S OFF THE CHAIN MAN. AND HAVE I MENTIONED AWESOME. HIS WORK ETHIC IS AMAZING AND YOU WOULD NEVER WANNA PLAY OFFENSE AGAINST THIS DUDE BECAUSE HE WILL BLOCK YOU SO BAD THAT THE BALL WOULD TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD AND BACK AND YOU'LL BE ON THE FLOOR CRYING. AND HAVE I MENTIONED HE IS AWESOME.

MAN you CAN'T DISS JAMES I MEAN HE'S BETTER THAN MJ (that's right I said it) he can shoot 3 pointers now even he can dunk he can pass he can jump like the position magic played in the 1980 NBA finals C-F-G rover no one can stop LeBRON on the fast break if you see him play KOBE man you'll see he is the second best nba player today only trailing to wade

He is really good at basketball I think he should be the 1st one of this list
