For the record, I am aware that the NBA is a business. I believe that players should feel free to make the decisions that are best for them and their families. You’ll notice that I’m not mad at LeBron because he left Cleveland. I probably would have stayed, but that’s just me. As a Lakers fan, I was hoping he would go somewhere else and level the playing field some. I even hoped that the Heat would turn out to be all that they thought they would be already.
A little over a year ago I wrote this, and I stand behind every word. Kobe Bryant is the best player in the NBA today, and a superstar in his own right. Michael Jordan is a legendary Hall of Famer, and still has the most popular athletic shoe brand after all these years. Ever wonder why people insist on comparing Kobe Bryant to Michael Jordan? Let’s explore why this is NOT something to do.
