Lakers News: LeBron James On Embracing Kobe Bryant During Game


The Los Angeles Lakers played a Christmas Day game without Kobe Bryant for the first time in 14 seasons.

With a knee injury, Bryant is expected to miss at least six weeks and that kept him out of the much anticipated Christmas Day game. The Lakers played a dominant Miami Heat team, and although they put up a great fight, they fell to the champions 101-95. Los Angeles had a chance to win the game in the final minutes, but with its closer on the sidelines the team could not get the win.

During the game, Heat star LeBron James took the time to embrace Bryant on the bench and pay homage to the injured guard. Later, James spoke to the media and touched upon his encounter with Kobe.

Bryant is perhaps the most respected player in the NBA and everyone knows how much time and effort he puts into the game. James learned first hand just how dedicated Bryant over the years as teammates in the Olympics and opponents throughout their careers.

    Kobe is still one of the elite player of the game. Kobe done alot for the NBA and he has been working hard to get back. Go Lakers ..

    I was never a fan of Lebron when he joined the Heat but the last 12 months my respect for him has grown a lot.

      I have grown to respect Lebron’s maturity as well. I always had respect for his game, but now more as a player and a person.

      To be great you must respect the greats who came before you.
      You should not fear them, but you should appreciate and respect them IMO.
