[Watch] Kobe and LeBron Play Against Each Other for the Last Time

Future Hall of Famers' final showdown.

Published March 11, 2016

One last time.

Kobe Bryant faced LeBron James for the final time Thursday night, when his Los Angeles Lakers hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers

As the Black Mamba finishes up the last chapter in his legendary 20-year career, King James has many more chapters to pen. That being said, Bryant had some final lessons to teach the younger NBA superstar and fellow future Hall of Famer.

Peep this post move that Kobe lost James with. 

Confused, LeBron? But Bron would turn in some highlights of his own, skying high for this nasty dunk via a feed off the glass from J.R. Smith.

When it was all said and done, Bryant outscored James, 26 points to 24, but the Cavs walked off the Staples Center court with a 120-108 victory.

At the final whistle, James showed the five-time champion nothing but respect, as the two embraced after their final game.

This is a pretty dope video of all the times that the two legends crossed paths, too. Classic material.

There are now only 16 games remaining in Bryant's iconic career.

Both he — and definitely his fans — should enjoy this.
