In his final meeting against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kobe Bryant racked up 26 pts compared to LeBron James’ 24 pts. As expected, the Cavaliers defeated the Lakers, but Bryant was able to show James his hall-of-fame moves one last time.
During one of their one-on-one battles, 37-year-old Bryant tricked James with a pump fake and easily scored a basket. That simple move gave us a glimpse of Bryant’s greatness. Even Lebron had to acknowledge Bryant’s talents and contributions to the game.
