LeBron James Expresses His One Regret About Kobe Bryant

LeBron James has a regret about Kobe Bryant. The Los Angeles Lakers are officially in the NBA Finals after so long without making it. They beat the Denver Nuggets 4-1 and were able to look pretty impressive doing it. The Lakers will now have a pretty good chance to win the title this year. They will be taking on the Miami Heat in the Finals. This should be a good match up.

The Lakers have a long way to go and they know this. They have not won anything yet. Lakers big man Anthony Davis has talked about what advice LeBron gave him before.

“He told us it was his time,” Anthony Davis said of LeBron James previously. “They was making a push late in the third and cut it to two and we didn’t really start off in the fourth quarter, didn’t close the third quarter how we wanted to and we didn’t start off good in that fourth. LeBron just took over. He told us it was his time. He told me it was his time.

“You know, he kind of just — everybody just kind of got out of the way and let him be him. He brought it home for us. He’s always capable of doing that. He makes the right plays and makes the right reads, and tonight, you know, the read for him was to get to the basket and finish or make a play, and all of them were good reads and he carried us tonight to get to this point.”

But he also had a few things to say about a regret he has about Kobe Bryant. Take a look.

“Of course, you think there’s going to be time for us to get together and I understand that there are regrets in life, but I definitely wish I had that moment with him,” James told Yahoo Sports. “I do remember when I decided to come here, he sent me a text right away and said, ‘Welcome, brother. Welcome to the family.’ That was a special moment because at the time, Laker faithful wasn’t [fully in on me]. A lot of people were saying, ‘Well, we might not want LeBron at this point in his career,’ and, ‘Is he right? Is he going to get us back [to the Finals]?’ So to hear from him and get his stamp of approval, it meant a lot. I don’t ever question myself, but when it’s coming from Kobe, it definitely meant a lot.”

“We have to remember not to take life and people for granted,” James added.
