LeBron James is considered by many to be the best player in the NBA today. However, Stephon Marbury doesn’t think that’s the case. During Kobe Bryant’s recent tour of Asia, the Black Mamba caught up with Marbury at a promotional event. Marbury later went on to tell the cameras that he considered Kobe as the best player in the NBA – not LeBron James. His reasoning? Marbury says that LeBron relies more on his freakish athleticism, as opposed to Kobe who is fundamentally sound and the overall better basketball player. Bryant and Marbury both entered the NBA in 1996; Stephon was taken 4th overall in the draft, while Kobe went at number 13. .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px; height: 250px; } @media(min-width: 500px) { .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 300px; height: 250px; } } @media(min-width: 800px) { .bottom-of-post-responsive { width: 336px; height: 280px; } }
