USA Today: The on-court chemistry between Bryant and James has already been evident. It is similar to the Michael Jordan – Magic Johnson duo on the 1992 Dream Team when USA Basketball paired up the NBA’s greatest scorer with the league’s most creative facilitator.
“Being on the court with both of them is trouble,” said New Jersey Nets point guard Jason Kidd, who will make sure the right player gets the ball and who Bryant and James say is the true leader of the team. “You almost fall into the trap where you think you can do anything. Everybody wants to talk about wanting to play with me, but I want to play with those guys because they make the game so easy.”
“It’s easy,” James added. “You don’t have to second-guess yourself because he is there backing you up. I’ve always been quoted as saying Kobe Bryant is the best player in our league, and I’ll continue to say that. You automatically try to feast off of that. Why wouldn’t you? Why wouldn’t you want to copy the best player in the world to better your game?”
