Hope he comes back for sure.
I get why M.J. is laughing but what's LeBron doing here? I'd like to see if he can even come close to the 5 championships Kobe has, plus Mamba's won 3 by the time he was 23. Without that big move to Miami LBJ wouldn't even have gotten it done the first time. And while he's not the top scorer anymore prime Kobe > prime LeBron in terms of clutch plays.
Oh yeah, and I doubt anyone could forget this
Kobe's first 3 champsionships came courtesy of some dominant beast named Shaq. Kobe was second fiddle during the early 2000s Lakers. Without Shaq, Kobe wouldn't have gotten those first 3 <---- sound familiar?
To put things into perspective:
Keep in mind that MJ attended college whereas LBJ and Kobe arrived straight from high school.
LBJ is clearly a better all-around player than Kobe. Championships is just one aspect of overall greatness. Otherwise, anyone could suggest that Robert Horry is better than Kobe and Jordan by that logic.
Edit: Get well soon Kobe. This ain't the end.
