Two different players, overall, I'd say Kobe. Especially considering he's doing pretty good for his age, so he's durable. Plus he's an incredible shooter. Lebron won't last as long and is more of an athletic based player with inferior basketball skills to Kobe.

Jordan, I wouldn't even consider Lebron until his career is over so we can compare their achievements. So far, I'd say Jordan is the better basketball player, but Lebron is a true athlete, so they are very different on the court.
