Mychal Thompson, broadcaster for the Lakers is pumped to see LeBron vs. Kobe again tonight. He thinks even with a slight shoulder injury he’ll play tonight considering a few factors including LeBron and Tyronn Lue. He talks about the type of competitor that Kobe is and what type of game he has left in him.
Mychal questions anyone who doesn’t think that Kobe should be getting recognized throughout the NBA as he takes his final trips to each arena and he spotlights the great reception that Kobe received in San Antonio. He was actually upset at Indiana and Portland for NOT doing anything special for Kobe. He thinks the tributes mean a lot because of what Kobe has meant for the game. Mychal really is intense about opposing teams showing respect for Kobe with a tribute and explains why he feels its important to him.
