Kobe Bryant is well seasoned when it comes to the NBA Finals. Winning 5 championships and appearing in 7, I would like to believe he knows that scene very well. Rebuilding of the Los Angeles Lakers along with consistent injuries to the 19 year veteran, has kept him away from seeing the Finals again, but he shared a few opinions of the 2015 NBA Finals.
The Black Mamba appeared on a pregame and postgame live stream on Sina Sports from China during Game 3, but he also used his twitter to give a little more insight. Kobe was first mentioned in a tweet:

Bryant being the witty, honest person that he is, responded with this:

It seems he is showing a lot of support for James and his situation. The Cleveland Cavaliers lost two of their top three players, and with no one else that can really create for themselves on the roster, LeBron was stuck with taking matters into his own hands. Kobe has been in similar situations,forced to carry the scoring load for his team and do all he could to get them to the top.

Even though LeBron played a hell of a series, he just didn’t have enough to get the job done. The Golden State Warriors overcame the Cavaliers winning the series 4-2. James looked winded, as he gave it all he could out there on the floor. Cleveland didn’t have enough to accompany LeBron on this task and even though he played phenomenal; one man can’t beat a dominant team like the Golden State Warriors.
