Friday Fire: We Can Talk LeBron James vs. Kobe Bryant All Day, But What About Cleveland vs. Los Angeles?
TSF is gearing up for the NBA’s second season. Jerold Wells Jr. will be working the Hawks/Pacers tonight and Anthony Gilbert and I will be in Philly to report on the Cavs and Sixers tonight as well. The atmosphere should be festive as these teams battle for playoff position.
The Cavs have much more at stake tonight in their quest to secure the number one overall seed in the post season.
Of course this is all hypothetical until it actually…maybe…probably goes down, but we can dream a little beforehand right?
Given that last year’s Boston/Lakers match up gave us all a chance to reminisce with bliss of old school, NBA Finals normalcy, there is a great chance we’ll actually get to see the two baddest basketball players on the planet battle for it all.
Fans of basketball the world over debate which player is better every single day, but seriously…is there a right answer?
IMO, Kobe Bryant is a notch above LBJ strictly because of sheer talent and experience, but LeBron is close enough in his rear view to make Beans a little uncomfortable on the last lap with the checkered flag waving in plain sight…
In fact, some of you under oath would give LeBron the nod over Kobe this very second. Just say this dream force of NBA current royalty happens this June…who ya rockin’ with?
LeBron’s Cavaliers or Kobe’s Lakers? Why?
This is no disrespect to Flash of course, because Wade is definitely in the discussion, but lets toss individual talents aside for a second and focus on the two teams with the best chance of June confetti shine (all dependent on KG’s health of course).
