Kobe Bryant Injects Life Into Kobe Vs. LeBron James Debate With Twitter Like

Who was the better basketball player in their prime? Kobe Bryant or LeBron James?

This isn’t a new debate by any means, but it was brought back to life Saturday thanks to social media.

Bryant, who retired from the NBA at the end of the 2015-16 season, liked a tweet insinuating he, not James, was the better player.

Take a look:

Of the 59 likes Bryant has, this is the lone tweet regarding the debate between the two. But as of Sunday, Bryant has since unliked the tweet.


This debate likely is far from over and can easily keep going until James calls it a career. But until then, the world of Twitter knows how Bryant feels.
