LeBron James Confident Kobe Bryant Will Return At High Level


Before and after the Christmas Day game, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James embraced each other. While most fans want them to be rivals, there is mutual respect and James was actually one of the first NBA players to wish Bryant a speedy recovery following the latest injury.

After the Miami Heat came out with a narrow victory, James said he has “much respect” for the five-time champion and spoke about people suggesting that Bryant should sit out the rest of the season via ESPN LA’s Ramona Shelburne:

Although the media has tried to manufacture a rivalry between two of the best players in the league, it has never been a true one since they have never met in the NBA Finals. Instead, there is mutual respect that stems from playing together on the Olympic teams where they won Gold in Beijing and London.

While there will always be conversations on who the better player is, it’s nice to hear LeBron show his support for a player that paved the way for him to enter the NBA straight out of high school. Although James is clearly the best player in the league now, he has to admire what Kobe has done throughout his entire 18-year career.
