    I have an irrational hatred of both these guys, but I’ll take the one who’s actually the best shooter in NBA history over the guy who thought he was and put up 30 shots a night

    Kobe already proved he couldn’t win without Shaq or 2/3 all star 7 footers, I’ll roll the dice with Steph

    And Corey proved he can win w/o a super team? lol. The Warriors window was closing after 2016. Without KD, they weren't making it out of the West. Even with KD, they nearly lost to Houston this season. Juice took the Warriors to 6 games without Kyrie and Love during their 1st run. They've just had a horseshoe up their ass these last few years.

    Well the GOAT part is what you'd always think it is. Now what did Kobe all but confess to that starts with 'R'?

    Curry has been a more efficient scorer and assist man. Offensively, I think it's clear that Curry was better than Kobe. Kobe was less of a liability, defensively, though.

    Your user name and this question are hilariously ironic.

    Truly a complete player

    Curry is so much more efficient, but he can be a liability on d. In a random situation as far as teammates go probably go with kobe.

    You are really forgetting about those Laker teams that missed the playoffs. Steph is more valuable because he opens up the defense for his teamates. Steph started all the three point shooting when people realized that it forces the game to open up.

    Comedic thread. I like @iwhoopedbatman statistical analysis though. Just goes to show that anyone can look up stats and act like they've watched the beautiful game.

    If you take 1/3 of your team's shots for three years don't be surprised if the other guys have difficulty putting out All-Star production stats. Doesn't mean they aren't being highly efficient and formidable teammates. Calling a team with two support players in the Top 70 all-time career VORP (one a HoF Center, the other a 6th man of the year baller like Schrempf) a "group of average players" is exactly why this contemporary era of super-teams is a cancer.

    It's warping the very prism of perception-- unbalancing it.

    On their own, it's Kobe but if in the context of getting a team to work with other stars in there it might be Steph (much better teammate as far as I can tell).
