I'm in Nazi now I published they want to put three or four essay yeah. An easy at his best he's a better player and Colby is best. I think LeBron is right now -- level right now higher than Kobe ever play in. But he's gonna win more championships -- -- Well if you think he's better than Colby at his best because. Well well why. He's a better all around where. Better defender. Better passer. Better rebounder -- which have been shortly and that I think Kobe was a better defender in his prime -- we actually got called for files that you can't what's brought it which can't be considered.

And you never called for follow this like this fall aren't what Denny's and but it's a little help -- he's all right we're getting some assistance so I don't think legitimately. He's as great defensively as Colby was -- Mikey or which shows us what is -- is it true or not. How is that not a spot I think created the situation with the situation exists is he really giving you did better shooter he better -- -- so that's the one definite for Kobe no question. No doubt about it. But I'll tell you what he's gotten better what's -- from the field this year. It's crazy I mean he's writing a letter to run it crazy level right now I think -- level right now is the highest I've seen by any player. I think since.
