There is one thing Larry Bird knows and that is basketball. When asked who he would take between Kobe and Lebron at crunch time it was easy for Larry Legend. He did admit it would be fun to play with Lebron James. In fact he considers James the best player in the NBA right now. Larry Legend did say though if the game was on the line he would rather have Kobe. I can't say I blame him. Apparently, he has watched Lebron James bricked a few balls on television.
Larry Bird was a clutch performer and it makes sense that he would take Kobe Bryant. He wants a player that he can count on all the time. He knows Kobe Bryant is a guy who works hard and never is happy with his performance on the court. Lebron James is a great player, but as far as a clutch player don't look for Larry Bird to pick him up.
