LeBron James’s way of remembering the Black Mamba

While talking about Bryant, aka the Black Mamba, James quoted the saying that time heals everything. He said that even though a year has passed, it has hardly reduced the pain that Bryant’s family, friends, and loved ones are going through.

James explained that for every individual, the way of dealing with pain is different. He said that when the pain is the same, everyone understands it and lets a person grieve irrespective of the time he/she takes. A person could easily snap out of the grieving period only if he/she wants. The best support one can provide is by lending a hand whenever needed.

James continued that the Lakers team still pays respect to Bryant in several ways, like wearing shoes or t-shirts with his name written at the back. He even compared Bryant’s playing style to that of Michael Jordan’s. The two-time Olympic winner said that the No. 24, who played for Lakers for 20 years, had a game that was very similar to Jordan.

He praised the 41-year-old player by saying that he only looked at Bryant for glimpses of Jordan. He then explained how numerous players in the world copy Jordan’s style, but Bryant had a unique touch to his game.

James praised Bryant’s playing style, finesse, ball-handling techniques, and shooting skills by saying that he always bought something new to the floor. He further complimented Bryant for using Jordan’s style in his game without losing his identity. He said that the way Bryant did it, no one else can ever do. As his last words, he said that he had a humongous amount of respect for what Bryant brought to the basketball court.
