The 2018 NBA playoffs have done wonders for LeBron James's already sterling reputation.
As he leads his team of misfits closer to the Finals with postseason averages of 34.8 points, 9.5 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game, the whispers that James, not Michael Jordan, is the GOAT are getting louder and louder.
Despite all of his success, Kobe Bryant never got those kinds of props.
And perhaps if the Pacers and Raptors knew the proper way to defend James he wouldn't be getting them either.
In an interview with FOX Sports, Kobe gave his rather simple advice for stopping James.
“Every big shot that he makes is going left. He’s remarkable about getting to that left hand and being able to raise up and shoot. That’s the first thing I would do, disrupt his ability to go left. “It’s amazing, all those shots are either coming right shoulder from the post or off the dribble with his left hand. That’s the first thing I would look at if I was guarding him in these playoffs— make him do something different besides going to that left," Kobe said.
Do you think that would work?
