The league finally got its coveted superstar battle in this year’s NBA Finals, but the matchup that fans and media alike have been waiting to see for years is LeBron James versus Kobe Bryant.
The two megastars have never played more than two games a year against each other, and having them be the showcase of the championship would undoubtedly attract the avid fans as well as the casual watchers.
The Lakers have been knocked out of the second round two years in a row now, and while the Lakers are an aging team, Bryant is still on top of his game. Having averaged the second-most points per game this season, Bryant still has the drive to win and the ability to make it happen.
Watching him match up against James and Dwyane Wade would be the second star-studded contest in a row, and would make for one heck of a 2013 championship showing.
