    It’s kinda crazy that lebron passes both of his idols that has to feel great but then has to feel bad for loosing one

    Kobe went to highschool in Philadelphia. Lebron passed him scoring. Kobe passed away unexpectedly. In other words 2020 is a horrible year already.

    y'all don't recognize greatness until its gone....like witnessing Lebron do the things he does is crazy but y'all don't see it because this is one of the greatest eras in basketball. you're just blind to it because there is so much greatness around you but when its got you will realize there might not ever be a dominant player like him maybe Gianni's but thats about it.

    Kobe puts the world on lebrons shoulders and then leaves him. Lebron will do everything he can to take the torch and do kobe proud. I do worry about him though. On a subconscious level only, but, and I'm being serious, I'm not taking jabs here....I worry this will trigger abandonment issues and bitterness, on a subconscious level. His father left him as a boy, putting the world to carry on his shoulders alone. Lebron once said if his father had never left, he probably wouldn't be a great nba player, and bitterness towards his father was what pushed him. I know lebron is smart enough to understand the difference, but on a subconscious level some deep hurts are hard to control and the jumble of deep rooted emotions can tangle you up inside, with much confusion

    I'm from Cleveland and still live here, had my ups and downs with LeBron. When he left the first time and the way he left was not cool. But when he left for the Lakers, HE HAD FULFILLED HIS PROMISE TO US IN CLEVELAND AND GAVE US A CHAMPIONSHIP! But I'm still seeing so many f**king HATERS from other cities toward this man, who is clearly THE best NBA player EVER. F your life if you don't respect King LeBron...you got issues my dude. Do you think the Lakers would be #1 in the West right now if it weren't for LeBron??? SHOW RESPECT WHERE RESPECT IS DUE!!!

    I am not trying to make this situation into a joke or anything, I truly find it sad. But imagine if LeBron passed Kobe the next game rather than the night before the accident. Passing Kobe any later would have a different feeling and emotion.

    9 people die in LA the world stops and now there is non stop sorrow on every media outlet to the point that I’m already irritated by it and it’s only been 2 days. When 176 people get shot out of the sky in Iran...It’s forgotten by the end of the week. Where are our priorities? This should wake us up to how pathetic most not all Americans really are and suck as human beings.

    For anyone who’s sad or whatever about James passing up Kobe (I don’t know why anyone would be sad but i know some might be) I’m sure Kobe is happy that he inspires many young people and many athletes. I think he wants people he inspires to pass him up and do better than what he did because behind all of that success, Kobe is what inspired them.

    Illuminati. It is no coincidence that Lebron passes Kobe then hours later he is dead. Lebron passing Kobe is Symbolic for the occult. Then the Grammys is held at the staple center the day of his death. These sick bastards are demonic. Also Kobe's Helicopter death is predicted in a cartoon called Legends of Chamberline heights. Wake the f up people and stop worshiping and watching the filth in the occult lead entertainment industry.

    Kobe was either assassinated or "wrote out the script" of American history. Kobe Bean Bryant=54 LeBron scored the 54th point of the game for the Lakers passing the record in Kobe's hometown. Also if you see the time when it's done it goes from 24 to 23 seconds on the clock. The ritual is there.
