Pro

First of all he has 5 rings compared to 2. Some might say that Lebron is younger than Kobe but that doesn't mean anything. Kobe had to go through way more than Lebron. Lebron is on a great team, MIAMI HEAT he has Wade, Bosh and Allen, Kobe worked super hard, he was on a currently bad team Los Angeles Lakers with no other good players but Shaq.

People might say that Lebron gets way more assists than Kobe but Kobe is a Shooting Guard and Lebron is a forward so it's good that kobe is getting some assists Lebron needs to get assists.

Kobe is good Lebron is good, they're both amazing players but I think that Kobe Bryant is a better player than Lebron James.

Con

Kobe is a great player. Lebron is better. While Kobe has five rings compared to Lebron's two, Lebron is still young and on a great team that shows no signs of stopping.
While yes, Lebron has Wade and Bosh to help, Kobe had Shaq, the most physically dominant player to ever play the game. Kobe's first two rings are more Shaq's than his. Just how Lebron's two are more Lebron's than Wades. Kobe was the second man to Shaq when they played together. So while Lebron has help in Miami, Kobe was the help in LA with Shaq.
When evaluating each player, you have to look at the PER. Lebron's Career PER smashes Kobe's. Lebron assists more, rebounds more, and in some seasons scores more. Lebron is a great overall player,rather than just a great scorer.

Disgrace on the side of Kobe. You shouldn't even be the person to support him. They play completely differently and different positions. Comparing them is like comparing Shaq to Pau Gasol.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's argument about Shaq is about as crazy as saying, "Oh, yeah, Scottie Pippen won a ton of rings, and he's the greatest player ever because all he had supporting him when he did it was that Michael guy."

Reasons for voting decision: Neither debater did a very good job explaining their arguments. There's no context or weighing mechanism to determine what makes one player better than the other. I give arguments to con for two reasons; first, he brings up an objective standard to determine who is the better player (PER) and because Pro doesn't meet his BOP.
