Not A 1-On-1 Showdown, But Kobe Leaves Cleveland With A Win

February 9, 2009 at 11:55 am Leave a comment


The hype. The everlasting comparison between two of the game’s greatest players. The office arguments of which guy is better and who you would take on your team. It was all settled on Sunday afternoon. Or was it?

Kobe Bryant and the LA Lakers traveled to Cleveland to take on LeBron James and the Cavaliers. The result, in my opinion, was a surprise as the Lakers handed the Cavs their first home loss all season. I can’t say that I thought Kobe and LeBron would go head-to-head, but I thought they would both perform better than they did.

Kobe finished with 19 points, 2 assists, and 3 rebounds. LeBron had a horrible day shooting as he went 5-20 from the field, finishing the game with 16 points, 12 assists, and 8 rebounds.

The Lakers finished a tough road-trip that included both the Cavs and the Celtics, both games of which they won. Are the Lakers still the real deal without Bynum?

I’ll stick with the Cavs to win it all. I’ll stick with LeBron as the best player in the game. And I’ll gladly listen to the insults and bashings.
