After playing 20 seasons with the Lakers, winning five titles, one MVP award and scoring more than 33,500 points, the mega-star athlete has reserved the right to indulge in some “what-if” hypotheticals. On a recent podcast episode of Holding Court with Geno Auriemma, Bryant reveals to Matthew Moreno that LeBron James is/was his dream teammate. His reasoning:
“He’s a passer first, I’m a scorer, I’m a finisher. ‘Bron is a facilitator by nature and I’m a finisher by nature. Those two styles, I think complement each other extremely well.”
This may come as a bit of a surprise to some as Bryant has long admired Michael Jordan growing up. Even so, the pair would have definitely offered a unique dynamic.
