Los Angeles Lakers’ star LeBron James, who has been compared to Kobe Bryant throughout his entire career, called comparisons unfair because of the different routes they’ve taken in their careers.
“I think that’s unfair. That’s going to be the only thing that’s unfair in this conversation we have today because I think at the end of the day, we are all different.”
“Michael’s fans, Michael Jordan himself. Kobe fans, Kobe himself. LeBron fans, and LeBron himself. We’re all different on the simple fact that we all take different challenges, we’ve all had challenges, we’ve all had different courses, but the one thing that’s the same is that we would do anything to play this game of basketball every single day.”
“Mike had his path, Mike was the greatest,” he explained. “Kobe had his path, Kobe was the greatest. I had my own path, hopefully, someday someone will say I’m the greatest.”
