KOBE or LEBRON : Who's Better???
Lakers vs. Cavaliers
If their teams don't end up in the NBA Finals,
this will be the last time this season baskeball fans
will see a head-to-head match-up between the players
who are this era's Best Ballers, Bar None.
Though neither will admit it,
both feel the pressure,
as both sorely want to be recognized as
The Greatest Basketball Player on the Planet.
The New York Knicks felt this rivalry most when,
over the past ten days,
Kobe lit up Madison Square Garden with 61 points,
the highest-ever opponent's score ever in the building,
beating Michael Jordan's 55 in 1996;
and just a couple of nights later,
Lebron recorded a Triple Double highlighted by 52 points,
the first player to achieve that since Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in '75.
Unfortunately for LJ, the league reviewed the tapes,
took away one of his rebounds, and his record along with it.
