Allen Iverson Is Bothered by People Who Forget Kobe When Debating Michael Jordan And LeBron James

With each passing day, debates pitting LeBron James against Michael Jordan get a little more intense. These arguments usually exist to try and determine which player is the best of all time, and while guys like Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar get plenty of praise, the discussion usually involves James and Jordan.

Allen Iverson isn’t really a fan of the argument being framed this way. It’s not because he doesn’t think they’re two of the best to ever play, but rather, Iverson thinks that debating Jordan vs. James means Kobe Bryant isn’t getting the respect he deserves.

“What bothers me is when they do talk about it, LeBron is great, first of all,” Iverson said. “When they talk about comparing him to Mike, I don’t understand how they don’t have the debate when it comes to Kobe. I don’t get it. What, you forgot or something?

“I really think they forgot,” Iverson continued. “I really think they forgot the Mamba, man. Certified serial killer, man.”

Iverson and Bryant had some tremendous battles back in the day — the pair were fantastic against one another in the 2001 NBA Finals, both guys were faces of the league during the years after Jordan retired, and Bryant has admitted that he studied Iverson’s game back in the day. There’s plenty of respect between the two, and Iverson put it on display with his insistence that Bryant gets included when discussing the best to ever take the floor.

  2. It's Kobe was a knock off MJ. That's not a bad thing because you do do want to emulate one of the greatest ever to play the game but Lebron has his own game that can't really be comparable to anyone that came before him except maybe Magic.

  3. You right A.I i played Kobe Bryant one on one late one night in my hometown i still don't know what happen to me all i remember he gave me the ball first after that he put a whopping on me still when i see Kobe i get nervous….. Uncle fred put up my belt he is the best player ever…. In to you Michael Jordan Kobe gave me his shoes he whip my ass wearing on his foots…. Dam give me a free pair M. J…… The end

  4. Wrong!! Sorry AI i disagree with you on this one and im not a lebron fan. The honest truth is LeBron James Basketball IQ is way greater than kobe's ever was. Kobe is an killer no doubt about that but he also made very poor decisions on the court throughout his career. Lebron will never catch MJ but i must admit he is the closer to catching jordan than kobe will ever be. Nothing against kobe plus Lebron has made a way bigger impact on the league than kobe.

  5. Iverson trust me, not everyone is like that, iv always said the top 3 are Jordan, Kobe and James. It's only losers that put James in front of Kobe

  6. Nobody forget Kobe, his career is over and he didn't top mj. Bron still have a few more years left, he could win a couple more chips, plus go to the finals like 10 times straight.
