Kobe and Lebron James had been partners for years and they were like brother and sister. They were close friends and enjoyed spending their free time together, just hanging out in the movies. When they won back-to-back NBA titles they became the best of friends.
However, it didn't last. Unfortunately, it all ended amid mixed reactions from some Kobe fans who were more than used to throw shade on LeBron in favor of Kobe. Their relationship broke up for good shortly after when Kobe tragically died on 26th March 2020.
So how does one move forward from a tragedy like that? And what can be done to prevent it happening again? It's easy to see the similarities between the two relationships, both of them had a good deal of drama, but their paths diverged drastically. There is an obvious difference between the two, as Lebron would have probably opted to leave the Lakers and pursue a career with the Cleveland Cavaliers, while Kobe opted to stay with the Lakers.
This is another reason why there is still a lot of controversy surrounding the relationship between Lebron and Kobe. Lebron obviously wants a fresh start and Kobe obviously wants to play for his old team – the Lakers. The thing is, that Lebron and Kobe have to work this out and get on with each other if they want to get better.
Kobe is now working out with D'Angelo Russell and Pau Gasol, trying to put his relationship with his old coach behind him. He has also moved on from a feud with Kobe's former trainer, Mike Brown. And it appears that the Cavs are ready to trade Lebron to the Miami Heat, which means the two-time NBA champ is going to a different place.
In all this turmoil though, there has been a lot of talk about what Andrew Brown did to Lebron. Brown was the coach of the Lakers and was hired to do a much-needed overhaul, to give them a more positive image and make them a better team. It seems that he may have taken the wrong decisions and caused Lebron to think that his own decisions were more important than the success of the team.
In the end, Lebron got himself into trouble. Lebron decided that he didn't trust Andrew Brown and tried to fire him. That decision backfired. The problem here is that Lebron was trying to get his own way and that didn't happen.
Lebron and Kobe have the opportunity to correct their mistake before it's too late. They need to sit down together and discuss their differences and get back together to get on the same page. If they don't, it could just get worse.
