    Wade vs Kobe

    Lol gtfoh. Kobe would shut his opponents down while dropping 40 in his young prime. Kobe was an elite all time defender.

    He never averaged 40 at his prime so your explanation is clearly way off. Kobe's peak was never better than Durant's, period. And if not for Daddy Shaq and a prestigious organization such as the Lakers, Kobe would be more troubled with winning rings playing for some bad organizations. It's the honest truth. If Kobe was drafted by a bad team under a poor organization, he would have a much different career. It's unfortunate most of the top players ended up playing on a poor team because they were high draft picks.

    Kobe on bad teams would be In between Vince Carter and Tmac for an all time ranking.

    Here you go. This one was easy.
    Game 5 in the western conference finals. Against defending Champion Spurs.

    Elimination game. Kobe shut down all nba team Manu Ginobli with 9 points and Shut down Bowen with 4 points.

    Then Kobe dropped 40 on all NBA defense first team Bowen and All NBA first team Duncan. Spurs ranked #2 in defense that year.

    What else would you like to know about Kobe’s accomplishments?

    Haha, no he wasn't, and he's never averaged 40, or anywhere close.

    What year? Bowen averaged 4 points. Was Ginobili a rookie?

    He shared 2008

    Starting 5 was
    Parker
    Duncan
    Bowen
    Finley
    Oberto

    Manu was 6th man

    One of Kobe's toughest opponents for his career is and was clearly the Spurs. But he did well in that series.

    It's the only time he faced the Spurs without Shaq

    Yep, prime Wade was better than Kobe.

    I dunno about that, but either way Kobe's prime was significantly longer than Wade's

    No that year Ginobli made the All NBA team. Spurs were the defending champs and 4x champs up to that point.

    Kobe has had multiple games like this. His 40 point NBA Finals game against the magic. They had the defensive player of the year in Howard anchoring and Pietrus, who was getting praised for his defense on the east playoff teams up to that point.

    What else would you like to know about Kobe’s legendary career?
