Bad-blood. Feuding superstars. Competitive spirit. Whatever you call the nature of the relationship between Kobe Bryant and LeBron James, it should stand to reason that they definitely haven’t been the best of friends over the years.
Still, there’s a profound amount of respect between the two of them, and there’s no real hate involved.
The whole dynamic is a bit complex, so when people began to speculate that Kobe would “come out of retirement to play with LeBron,” nobody was sure what to think.
Evidently, Kobe had a thought (or two), about this rumors when he was asked about it on The Ellen show, and it’s truly something to behold.
What does that look mean?
Only something The Mamba himself will ever know.
But it seems fair to say that we shouldn’t be counting in a Kobe Bryant comeback anytime soon.
