Lebron James’ career is far from over, but Kobe still has high praise for him. Kobe wouldn’t go as far as saying Lebron was better than him, but he did give him the highest compliment, that he will ever get from Kobe.
“Is he as good as me? (Host: Yeah, is he as good of a basketball player as you are?) I mean every time you start comparing players to some of the all-time greats then you have to put him in that same room.”
LeBron is still young in his career and still has a lot of runs to make, with this being the first streak that he has put together that has been one of, in a historical sense, but I’m sure he will have many more of those down the road.”
