Following the Golden State Warriors NBA Championship win, many have wondered what the legacy of Lebron James will be. The Cavaliers superstar now has a 3-6 NBA Finals record following the sweep by the Warriors.
While many won’t question the greatness of Lebron, in an age where championships dictate where you’re placed in the pantheon of great basketball players, many have questioned whether any other superstar could win rings against the competition James has faced in his Finals trips.
On Monday, a Twitter user questioned if Kobe Bryant would have any rings if he faced the 2013 and 2014 San Antonio Spurs, as well as the Warriors from 2013-2018.
"If @kobebryant was on the Heat/Cavs instead of @KingJames the past 6
years, and faced the 13', 14' Spurs & 15',16',17', 18' Warriors, hed have ZERO rings. Context is everything.” @EricSal_7 tweeted.
The fan responded to Bleacher Report article where Bryant discussed James’ legacy after falling to 3-6 in NBA Finals appearances. "If I'm Bron, you got to figure out a way to win," Bryant said to Bleacher Report. "It's not about narrative. You want to win championships, you just gotta figure it out."
However, it appears the Black Mamba isn’t a fan of accusation. “WE had to face the Spurs EVERY post season pretty much,” Bryant tweeted in response. “Not to mention the first super team in Boston but hey, what do I know."
