LeBron James is used to being a hero on his home court and a villain in many of the arenas he visits.
While attending the Los Angeles Rams’ home opener on Sunday, the Cleveland Cavaliers megastar was inundated with chants of another NBA great’s name.
As James arrived at L. A. Memorial Coliseum with his two sons, he was met with a chorus of “Kobe!” chants in honor of Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.
The two future Hall of Famers spent the last 13 years competing against each other, with their on-court rivalry ending after the 2015-16 campaign – Bryant’s last.
Even with The Black Mamba out of the game, his legacy lives on in basketball, especially in L.A.
Now that LeBron’s spending more time in Tinseltown, he ought to get used to this reception.
