Kobe Bryant and LeBron James battled for the final time in a Lakers loss to the Cavs. Plagued by injury much of the season, Kobe rose to the challenge of facing LeBron with 26 points on 11-for-16 shooting. While King James finished with a total of 24 points and memories for a lifetime.
“It was everything for a competitor like myself and I know for himself,” James said after the game. “I know he was not taking this game off and I definitely wasn’t taking it off, so it was great to be out there for sure.
“For the both of us, we are two sportsmen … we love the lights and get up for the best moments and for us to give the fans and give our beautiful sport one last opportunity to watch us both on the same floor and give them a show, it was great.”
