Stephen A. Smith says LeBron James would’ve benefited more from Kobe Bryant, and LeBron wouldn’t have struggled to win a title as long as he did if he teamed up with Kobe. Max Kellerman disagrees and says Kobe Bryant needed LeBron James more for his legacy. Stephen A. and Max then debate if a LeBron-Kobe duo for the Los Angeles Lakers would’ve topped Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen at the height of the Chicago Bulls.

  1. I think in a vacuum LeBron/Kobe seems like a better team.. I have no doubt they would have had a shot to 6-0 the same finals that the bulls did… but honestly with Pippin and Jordan being significantly better defensively and both at the same position as bron/kobe I think it is a very good matchup for the Bulls. If one of Pippin or MJ could shut down their def assignment 4 times in different games they win the series.

  2. Im tired of stephen A. It's why I stopped watching first take. Sucks cause max is awesome. Tired of skip too honestly. But I'd rather watch him than stephen A smith
