One of the best basketball convos to get into (outside of that whole, whose the G.O.A.T or I guess GOAT #2…) is how you feel two players would match up in a one on one game. The LA Times polled Kevin Durant, John Wall, Trevor Ariza and Matt Barnes give their thoughts as to who would win a game of One-on-one between the Black Mamba, Kobe Bryant and King James himself… or just LeBron if you prefer your royalty to have the jewelry to back it up the legacy.
You already know, I’m rolling with Mamba. Not because I don’t think that physically at this point in his career that LeBron might be better than Kobe- did I font that out loud? ANYWAY, but I think Kobe’s HEART beats LBJ’s all day. And when you get to the level they’re at, that’s what truly separates the winners and losers in my eyes. You see it.
Until LeBron moves past that psychological block he has, he will forever be #2.
