Kobe Bryant is on team LeBron

Some Lakers’ fans still aren’t on the #LABron trend?

Yes, and it’s a lot of them who feel a certain way about LeBron James now being the face of the Lakers franchise.

It isn’t even that some of the fans dislike James as a player, it was the rivalry between Kobe and LeBron. A rivalry that is sort of, well, made up

Kobe and LeBron never met in the NBA Finals. With being in different conferences, not once did they compete in the playoffs.

But, if there is one person who can mend the fences between Lakers fans who support the team and fans who support the team, excluding LeBron, it’s Kobe Bryant.

Making a visit on the Rich Eisen Show, Kobe discusses his thoughts on Lakers fans who have an issue with James in L.A.

He says, “listen, if you’re a fan of mine, and you’re a fan of winning, you’re a fan of the Lakers, i bleed purple and gold, so that’s above anything else. I’ve been a Laker fan since I was yay high. That is never going to change, right? It is about winning championships, so they’ll fall in line.”

Kobe also goes on to add that the goal is to always win championships, and that’s what LeBron James and the Lakers organization wants to do. Maybe not in year one, but hopefully within the four years James signed for.

So, for any Lakers fans out there who don’t want to embrace The King, Kobe says you eventually will.
