Fair enough. Although, Kobe missed the playoffs more times than Lebron (and Kobe's were in his prime whereas Lebron missed when he was a teenager). Lebron has better numbers in the postseason. And Kobe had some awful early and prime playoff appearances as well, but he wasn't the star of the team yet, where Lebron was from 19 on. I mean, Lebron's worst playoff run was that first year in Miami (where he absolutely choked in the Finals), where he went 23, 8 and 7 on 46% shooting. It's either that year or his second playoff run when he carried a terrible Cavs team to the Finals despite shooting 42% but then got destroyed by the Spurs. Either way, Kobe has had worse playoff runs. He's also choked away a Finals against Det with historically terrible shot selection and he quit on his team in a game 7. As for the team switching. Again yes, but Kobe ran Shaq out of town and then threatened to leave if the Lakers didn't get him help. But it's true he never actually ran to another team. But he also played for a truly great franchise, not Dan Gilbert, so had every reasonable expectation that they would build around him.
