VIDEO: Stephon Marbury Believes Kobe, Not LeBron, Is NBA’s Best

LeBron James, Kobe Bryant

According to the media, LeBron James has surpassed Kobe Bryant as the best basketball player in the world.

It’s difficult to argue considering James has won two consecutive Most Valuable Player awards and championships. His combined size, power, and speed has never been seen, but Stephon Marbury believes Kobe is still the best player in the NBA.

During Bryant’s stop in China as part of his Lenovo tour, Marbury believes Bryant is the best all-around basketball player:

“I consider him the best basketball player in the NBA. I think LeBron James is a freak of nature. There’s not many guys who can run, jump, and pass the ball the way and how he does. I just think Kobe is the better all-around basketball player.”

It’s surprising considering that many feel that James is actually the best all-around basketball player while Bryant is one of the best scorers in the NBA. There will always be constant debate between Bryant and James, but in terms of who is the best basketball player, Bryant’s skill-set is unmatched.

For Bryant to be considered a top-three player in the league at the age of 34 requires a lot of skills and adjustments throughout his career.  It’s simple to say that James is the better player now considering he’s six years younger and in the prime of his career, but it’ll be more interesting to see if James will be able to sustain his greatness as his athleticism diminishes.
