Kobe Bryant Made A Great Point In The GOAT Debate After LeBron’s Epic Game 7

LeBron James inspired a multitude of reactions in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals.

For his fans, the 35-point, 15-rebound, nine-assist effort without a concussed Kevin Love was vintage LeBron.

LeBron’s haters couldn’t look past his eight turnovers — more than all of the Celtics combined — or the fact that he needed seven games to upend a team missing its two best players.

Or Jayson Tatum’s epic posterization of the four-time MVP.

And it wouldn’t be a LeBron discussion without Michael Jordan stans and Kobe Bryant stans shutting their eyes tightly, pounding on their desks, and screaming LeBron’s NBA Finals record at the tops of their lungs.

But not Kobe himself.

The Lakers legend saw that debate brewing online, and wished people would pause to appreciate the man who’s on his way to his ninth NBA Finals appearance.

Then he silenced a reporter who’d apparently missed the point of his tweet entirely.

Shocker, that guy covers the Raptors.
