Kobe vs. Lebron (Plus: Lakers vs. Cavs, I Guess)

by Marcel Mutoni

If you’ve been paying attention to the NBA and its opinion-makers this season, and I know you have, then you’re probably aware of the fact that LeBron James is the leading candidate to win the MVP award. Just about everyone has come to grips with this. Including, perhaps, his opponent tonight.

If the award was handed out at the All-Star break, Kobe Bryant knows who should get it. From the LA Times:

Bryant seemed mildly uncomfortable when asked for his MVP choice near the season’s halfway point.

“LeBron,” he said. “Leave me alone about that stuff.

Tonight, of course, the Cavs visit the Lakers, in one of the most highly-anticipated matchups of the year. It’s the battle of the League’s two best teams, but even more importantly, its two biggest stars. In other words, David Stern can’t stop smiling.

And you should be smiling, too. This is the kind of game that makes the NBA the world’s greatest League. Enjoy the show.

    Stats from the past five Lakers-Cavs matchups, stolen from Sporting News Today…
    PPG: Kobe 32.4, Bron 31.8
    RPG: Kobe 7.2, Bron 7.8
    APG: Kobe 5.4, Bron 4.8
    FG%: Kobe 44.3, Bron 45.3
    WIns: Lakers 0, Cavs 5
    Should be fun!

  • http://hibachi20.blogspot.com Moose

    B. Long, did he handle the truth when it mattered? I don’t think so. He can’t handle the truth of his MVP candidacy, anyways. And great stats, Mr. Jones.

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    I’d like to be the first to introduce Mr. James to a healthy Trevor Ariza. Should be fun, for sure.

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    Cavs by 30. They stomped the Celtics and they stomped the Hornets. Nuff said. And Trevor Ariza guarding Lebron. Can a tree hugger chained to a tree stop a speeding bulldozer? I THINK NOT

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    The Rza is the a bonafied hustla, BET. Soon you will see the light.

  • Dave

    Trevor Ariza had 52 points dropped on him in high school by LeBron which was his career high. I know Trevor has obviously gotten better since then but so has LeBron. Should be fun…

    Plus Kobe sounds he gone go off for 80. I dont give a damn just want whoever plays the Celtics and Cavs to finish the Jobs (meaning I’ve become Lakers and Nets Fans this past week)

    ENDS dunking on people and lock down D alone does not make you a solid player. If it did, Gerald Green and James White would be all stars.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    Dave at 11:35 am beat me to it, but yeah, Bron’s been lighting up Ariza since they were preps — and hey, look, a link!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLreS4PZGcc
    Look for me sitting behind the basket…
    Also, I remember a Knicks-Cavs game four or five years ago where I literally thought Ariza was going to cry trying to check him. Literally.

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    Gerald Green and James White have never been accused of playing lock down D.

  • ENDS

    i said nothing about solid player I said Sick Nasty and im sticking to it

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    The match-up should be good as usual but it’s a bit lopsided: Cavs have 2 injured starters and a under-the-weather Ben Wallace so they’ll need LeBron and Mo to have sensational nights to get the W.
    I think the game is the Lakers’ to lose.

  • ENDS

    even you cringed when you saw it dont lie

  • ENDS

    Actually now that i think about it if your scoring and playing Defense (Lock-down if I may quote you good sir) wouldnt that actually make you a solid player. If not what will

    Oh and at least Mamba’s ready to pass over the MVP torch

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    still not completely sure what the fu(k your talking about ends. Just say both players names. And dunks on Emeka dont matter that much to me. They are astetically pleasing for the masses and gives ESPN a reason to show Bobcats highlights which always include Okafor owning dudes. Part of the thing of being a great shot blocker is that you jump no matter what. IF it didnt happen, their would be no posters today. Thanks for playing.

  • Vannshy

    I can already picture in my head Lebron shawnbradleyed Gasol, it’s gonna be fun

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com BETCATS

    And Okafor on Powe/ Okafor on Dalembert / Okafor on YI were all very nice dunks. But you wouldnt care. Why are we talking about Emeka anyway?

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    BET is right. There really is no reason to even mention his name right now.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    I’ve got a comment in moderation that includes a link to the 2003 Westchester-St. Vincent/St. Mary high school game featuring a young LeBron James and a young Trevor Ariza. Should pop up at 11:59 a.m., and it’s worth checking out — both for the highlights of Bron’s 52, and for the amount times the announcer says Ariza’s name right before LeBron scores.

    I understand why people hate on Kobe and the Lakers franchise from time to time, but there are some dudes that just play so freakin’ hard and seem to make all the right decisions on and off the court that you’d think they’d transcend any real fan of basketball’s biased. Kind of like Leon Powe does for me in Boston. No matter how much I hate the Celtics I gotta show Powe love. I guess I just see Trevor as someone who should be that guy for others. Oh well.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Ryan Jones

    No one’s hating on Ariza (well, at least I’m not), just pointing out that it might be overly optimistic to think he’s going to shut down LeBron, particularly as there is historical precedent to imply he very much will not.

    I think the Cavs can pull this one out in the long run. We know Kobe will get extra amped for the game, and will try to do everything it takes to make sure the Lakers win, but with that being said will he involve the rest of his team? Lebron knows that when he takes over the focus shifts onto him and leaves team mates open for those 3′s. The Cavs take it by 10.

    Hmmm…I’m not sure if they’ll match Bron up with Kobe all game. That plays into the Lakers hands too much. Making Bron use a lot of energy on D and keeping him from being able to be nearly as aggressive from the weakside. Then agin, I’m not sure who else on the Cavs would guard Kobe.

  • jay

    well this matchup has a feel of a one of those magic and mj games! just the way it is! right now LBJ has the edge in the mvp race but kobe the last couple of weeks has been off the charts! after the friday loss..kobe will not stay as such but it will be a statment game. if kobe goes for a triple double or goes on one of his shooting displays..it is going to be that kind of night..shout be a great game and a great match up!

    Crab Patties for everyone!

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    I think Kobe is a little ticked off with all the James hoopla. I remember an interview with Magic a couple of weeks ago when Magic asked him point blank when would be the time to pass the torch to LeBron and he said ‘when I retire!’ He will never admit this now but the whole MVP and potentially best player in the L doesnt sit too well with him. I’m expecting a statement from him tonight.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JulsMW0rQTk nbk

    He said he wants one more ring, he said ideally it would be when he retired but he wants LeBron to let him get one more ring (i don’t think he literally meant let him…duh) . IMO it sounded like Kobe knows he is not the best and is uncomfortable with the notion because that is all he has cared about his whole career. A championship without Shaq will give kobe a place on basketballs mt. rushmore (IMO)

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    that’s the whole reason he changed his number, to have a post-Shaq legacy. hasn’t been working out so well

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    Yeah, that unexpected Finals appearance, MVP trophy, and gold medal are just destroying his legacy. It’s all the number 24′s fault.

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    Stop, think about that, it ain’t about that

    Myles has been hanging out with Eddy”just touch it dave”Curry?

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    Kobe definitely wants a ring without Shaq, regardless of what he says. The only problem is that he won’t get one. Bynum has regressed and the lakers still don’t defend well enough. The Gold Medal has nothing to do with Kobe’s legacy and the MVP he got last season was more of a “Lifetime Achievement” award than anything else.

  • http://fdjslf.com Jukai

    Because B Long likes to constantly remind me how he was right about Derrick Rose, I’d like to remind B Long that so far, I am 100% right about Bynum (did not come back 100% from injury, is not playing well with Gasol). Someone owes me a bud.

  • Justin

    LOL at Anton. Kobe after Shaq has been just fine. Most 95% of NBA players wish they could have a career as good as the one he’s had in the past 5 years.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JulsMW0rQTk nbk

    regardless of how great Kobe’s career has been there will be a bitter taste in his and all his fans mouths if he never has real success post-shaq (real success when you play in LA involed a trophy, ring ceremony, and champagne, not just an award for being great.)

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JulsMW0rQTk nbk

    involves*

  • http://www.where-basketball-b-longs.blogspot.com/ B. Long

    @Jukai:Actually, Bynum has been playing fine with Gasol. If you go back and look at comments in Sept. I said that if Bynum could come back and avg. 13 and 8 the Lakers would be a lot better. Looking at their record and Bynum’s avgs. of 12.6 and 7.7 I’d say I was pretty damn close to being exactly right. Bynum’s biggest problem is that he hasn’t gained Phil’s trust yet in the clutch, therefore he doesn’t garner many touches in the 4th quarter. If Shaq hadn’t been reborn this year Bynum would be backing up Yao at the 5 in the ASG.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JulsMW0rQTk nbk

    I agree all the way to the end of what you said until the all star thing B……If Andrew Bynum made the all star team over Biedrins, Jefferson, and even Nene then I would have a nervous breakdown. Don’t give Bynum too much credit B even though he has been better then expected IMO

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    Bynum’s rebounds are slipping and he seems to disappear sometimes out there, but the biggest issue is that he’s not blocking, or even chaging, many shots. Pau is also avergaing a career low blocked shots. I was so high on bynum last season, and thought that he had all the tools to be one of the top big men in the league. But I’m afraid the moster contract he signed hasn’t done much for him in terms of motivation. This team is still going to need Kobe to carry them wherever they go.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JulsMW0rQTk nbk

    duh

  • http://www.kicksonfire.com Anton

    loser had 3 rebounds against the Magic. Ariza also had three, and is 3 feet shorter and played half his minutes.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82VY4gZgmsc jaymes

    Like B.Long said, if you don’t get touches in the 4th..Gasol is the focal point up front ’cause he gets a stack of touches in the 4th, he has a knack for making the right play in the clutch. Bynum’s game hasn’t changed a lick, it’s just that there’s another big out there with him who is more experienced.

    Bynum probably needs a Gasol injury for anyone to give his game some recognition..The Lakes would be shot but at least Bynum would get some love..

    Hornets win!

  • The Promise

    Cavs by 5. LeBron scores 30 plus.

    Kobe will dominate! He’s lost 2 straight games and he is a little hot so I think he will look to make a statement tonight!

    I’m so glad I wasn’t around today. Can’t wait till June when the Lakers are nowhere in sight and the sheep are looking to be slaughtered like a pack of veal.

    If Z ain’t playin’, R don’t care. Much.

  • Keith

    Lebron is overrated.

    I wonder if Drew Gooden will be sporting a ‘throw-back goatee’?…

    Whatever. Chuck Hayes won the game for the Rockets. I hope the Cavs win, just so it’s easier to catch up with LA in the West standings.

  • Krishan

    I would just like to say that rudy fernandez getting voted to the slamdunk contest over joe alexander is pretty D.U.M.B.

  • Krishan

    Oh! And go Lakers!

  • bill breedley

    kobe was channeling magic tonight and bron did his best bird. nice lakers win

  • j4zz m4n

    yup you cavs got beat after all that trash you were spouting…”cavs by 30″ yeah right and kobe involved his team mates only problem was that monkey king never scored…

  • Krishan

    To be fair, there were a number of times lebron got beat up and no calls were made. And LA made a lot of defensive blunders, they really don’t look natural playing the zone and when bynum sits they look even worse. And also: Casey Carlson is HOT.

  • Krishan

    And kobe with the “dislocated” finger? He’s FAAAAKIIING IT!

  • Krishan

    That was sarcastic. Glad thay won. Wouldn’t be this chipper if I weren’t. :)

  • catalan

    no kobe. no lebron. pau.

  • Logan

    good win for the Lakers tonight…i was worried about the 4th Q cause they have been losing the grip on the games in the 4th. but solid show by the bench….btw that Bron wipe of Sasha’s weak layup was ridiculous….
    hope he finger dislocation is not too bad…without Kobe the Lakers are dunzo…plus i want to watch him in the all star game…dont want a repeat of last year

    This little pinky, went to pasture, and this little index finger w…. oh never mind.

  • Logan

    and by the way, Ariza defended Lebron pretty well down the stretch

    Kobe Kobe Kobe Kobe. LeBron LeBron LeBron. LBJ looks good. kobe looks good. LBJ is getting….

    LAKERS=08-09 CHAMPS

    Fun to watch.

    Also fun to see how you can use your technical skills to gain an advantage over a physically superior opponent.

  • http://double-technical.blogspot.com Zee!

    Great game. Now if these two teams meet in the finals, will Kob and Bron guard each other for the whole series? That would make things so much easier for the Lakers. Gasol, Bynum and company would have a field day with the rest of the cavs players.

  • Nbk

    The cava didn’t have 2 starters that game showed nothin

  • CSP8

    Does everybody thats 6’9″ 250lbs have to get knocked off the court to get a foul call?

  • Jackie Moon

    CSP8 – no, you just have to get fouled legitimately.

  • Derrick Dixon

    Lebron is great but he is still no Kobe and the onky advantage the Cavs has is Mo Williams.
