Kobe Bryant Thinks Magic Deserves 2nd Statue For Pulling Off LeBron Signing

Kobe Bryant still awaits his bronze cast statue in front the Staple Center, it’s really only a matter time. That didn’t stop the Black Mamba from deeming Magic Johnson worthy a second statue, all because he pulled f the signing LeBron James. Hyperbole aside, Magic has done a good job managing all the egos taking up space with the Lakers’ nation, mostly by diminishing his own sense pride.

While Magic Johnson’s business is still up for question in the Basketball world, by signing LeBron James, he has certainly givien himself a probable chance “getting it right.” Kobe spoke kindly his Lakers’ brethren as a guest on The Stephen A. Smith Show, even he idolized Magic like no other, even his own father Joe Bryant.

The Lakers transformed themselves into contenders in one stroke by signing LeBron. Whether he demonstrates the aptitude or not, it goes without saying that having a revered person like Magic on board, adds an air respectability to the franchise. Lakers’ fans could always count Kobe as one their own. The question Kobe leaving the Lakers presented itself a few times over his career, but I’d argue his status was never in doubt. If he said otherwise it was only to threaten management to get their ducks in order, the same way LeBron has jockeyed for position.
